Thank you for your kind comments, emails and private messages on Facebook about Duke. I really appreciate every single one of them.
I’m coming at you today with a rare Sunday post because I’ve decided to start a “New Apartment” series here on the blog.
Instead of posting about the apartment during the week, I’ll keep Mon – Fri. posts about running and use Sundays for apartment decor posts.
I’ve never considered myself the interior decorating type at all. I briefly considered hiring an interior decorator for the apartment (a friend of a friend who would have done it inexpensively for us). Then I decided it was a creative project I really want to tackle on my own!
I’ve started a Pinterest board with apartment decor ideas and I’m ready to go!
My biggest issue right now is not being able to find a perfect couch for the living room! It’s. So. Hard.
Over the weekend we did buy stools for the kitchen island which I am very excited about because we now have a place to sit and eat dinner!
Since the living room is basically on hold until I can find the perfect couch, I’ve decided to move on to the master bedroom.
Here are some before pictures… I’m hoping by next Sunday I’ll have after pictures ready!
(Please excuse the messiness of the bed… we’re all friends here, right?)
Right side of the room:
Left side of the room:
Bathroom side and small walk in closet area:
Desk and big walk in closet area:
Inside the big walk-in closet:
I’m only sharing a part of the closet since the other half that has all my clothes is in total chaos right now!
Since I’m going with teal as my accent color for the master bedroom and bathroom I think I’m going to have some pictures I’ve taken at the beach blown up to decorate the walls. I think the color of the water and sand will fit in nicely with the teal, white and grey.
That’s as far as my ideas go for the bedroom right now though. In between football games today I’ll be clicking around Pinterest for more ideas!
Where do you go for home decor ideas? Favorite stores or websites?
Any advice/tips for the master bedroom?
