After posting about our apartment hunt on Monday, I went straight into decor research mode. In fact, I spent several hours deep in the interwebs finding things I like. Woops! I’m finding that I have a huge thing for neutrals when it comes to the basics, but pops of color come into the accessories. How do you style?
I’ve been busy planning how I’d like my future space to look … and it’s become increasingly obvious just how much I love white. White walls, white wood, white accessories – the list goes on and on. We won’t move until this fall, but that doesn’t mean I can’t start dreaming, right?? Here’s the thing : I can open up a blank canvas in Illustrator and have at it on any given day, but interior design is a whole different ballpark that I, quite honestly, struggle with. In the past, I’ve gotten ideas into my head and gone forward without planning much. I’ve realized that I need structure and planning to make anything work. With that said, I’ve started a little google doc with things I’d like to get, aesthetics I enjoy, and have been pinning inspiration like crazy. I promised myself that I wouldn’t dive in too fast … these things take time and patience, which is something I’ve gotta work on!
I’ll be honest – I have “enough” dresses, but as of late, I haven’t been happy with very many of them. So of course I took to the internet to find some new goodies for my own wishlist. The theme? a neutral white. I fell in love with all of these and would love to have them in my closet, sigh. The top two are classy while the bottom four have a little more flair. You never know when you’re going to need either!
You guys. I want to DIY something like this SO bad … they’re definitely on my wishlist of things to make, that’s for sure. I have so many pens, pencils, markers and little gadgets that need to be in a much spiffier place. Currently, it’s an old mug that I could do without. Time to get crackin’! If you’re not into DIY, but love what you see, these can be purchased here. Awesome, right??
After mother nature decided to dump a bunch of sleet, rain, and mushiness in Minneapolis on Tuesday, I’ve been day dreaming of the ocean and other warmer places like none other! It’s not that much longer until my trip to Arizona in May and April will certainly bring better weather around here. So why not get excited about it!? I put together a little wishlist for a simple spring. Meaning, neutral colors paired with pretty coral and mustard hues. If you can’t tell from moxee’s branding, I kind of dig that color palette. A lot.
