As you all know, it's been a while since I had a real post go up... 'real' meaning something other than relaying content that's over on The Everygirl. First off, thank you so much for your support and patience. I feel so incredibly lucky to have so much love from my readers. As I mentioned, my and my family's health is fine, and I apologize for worrying all of you. That being said, rather large changes have happened in my life lately, and I'm trying my best to adjust.
As such, I am throwing myself into finishing off this apartment. Too many "maybe this" and "maybe that's" have been thrown around, and I'm ready to make this place my own with the official tour debuting on The Everygirl in February. Finishing touches starting with my home office. One night recently when I was feeling particularly down, I grabbed my hammer and a set of nails, turned on Mumford, and went to town rebuilding my inspiring gallery wall in the office. What's been a blank wall since moving in became this in a matter of minutes...
Ahhh (sigh of relief). There she is. Not super impressive, I admit. But it feels like home. Naturally, I needed to concoct a plan to spruce this up.
- have my thrift store mid-century chair professionally reupholstered (possibly w/ some tufting?) in this amazing fuschia velvet fabric from FabricMart on Etsy.
- add more art and make it super colorful - remove the darker pieces. I'm thinking of using some of my favorite images from The Everygirl features throughout the past year - particularly these gorgeous shots of Jihan Zencirli (Geronimo Balloons) taken by artist and photographer Kimberly Genevieve.
- clean. that box has been there with miscellaneous office stuff since moving in august
- paint that shit. the wall, that is. but what color...?
Teal? White? Pink?
...no brainer, really. Pink it is. I love love Middleton Pink by Farrow and Ball but might have to find a more affordable alternative.
Also adding this amazing and reasonably priced black and pink rug from Lulu and Georgia. Keeping the pink geometric rug I already have from RugsUSA. This is gonna be good. Real good.
Note that is not actually the desk I work on - hence the birdcage. My desk is near the window to the left in the photo. This is an old, beat-up parsons desk that is acting as more of a console table and storage.
Excuse my horrendous photoshopping. You get the idea.
Miss you all. I'll hopefully be here a little more often now that these last projects are underway...
