Sofa: Ikea | Sofa Pillows: Serena & Lily | Ottoman: Ikea | Coffee Table: Ikea | Dog Basket: Chewy |
There are a few things I love about my apartment: it is brand new and I face south so I get endless sunlight and therefore, natural light. I will be honest and say this sofa is about 5 years old and from my college days! I was planning on gutting a new sofa last year, but then I adopted a furry dog and I decided I would wait. Since I opted to not get a new sofa, I thought I would spring for an Ottoman that would make my sofa a little more cozy. It is from Ikea and surprisingly comfortable. A fair amount of my items actually come from Ikea and other than hating going in the store, the stuff is pretty nice! Until I get a house, I am not willing to spring for super nice furniture sine being young requires a lot of moving.
Bar Stools: CB2 | Flowers: Michael’s | Soap: Jo Malone |
I love my kitchen! At my first apartment, the kitchen was placed in the back of the apartment, in what felt like a black hole. This kitchen is white everywhere has endless amounts of lights, plus the natural light. I was actually anti barstools for a while, because the counter height at the apartment complex isn’t standard, so if felt like you were either sitting too high or too low. But I wanted my guests to have some additional sitting and to feel close to the kitchen if I was in there cooking. The acrylic is super awesome because the bar stools are there, but not since they are almost see through!

Ikea really has the best stuff. This shelf is only $80! I have had it for years and never had a problem. It comes in both white and black, my whole apartment is white, so I went with the white (haha!). I of course have books, but I don’t actually only put them on the bookshelf — unless they are the coffee table books. But this shelf is amazing for displaying my purses. Ideally I would like to have them in my walk in closet, but that will have to be in the future. Till then, they are in the living room and are actually a great conversation starter!
Console Table: Wayfair | Mirror: Target |
This little walk in table is a recent addition to my apartment. The space between my bedroom and bathroom used to be a wasted space and very bare. Now it is more fun! I am still finding pieces to decorate it, but it is coming along. It was also challenging because if the table was too wide, I would walk into it as I exited the bedroom. I also love having a mirror to check how I look when I walk out the door.
Dining Room Chairs: Restoration Hardware | Dining Room Table: CB2 |
This table is set up right by the windows that face south! It is absolutely amazing to sit at the table in the morning with a cup of coffee and work away. The sun comes pouring in and just makes you happy! Especially now that I am working from home, I am getting to use this little nook all the time.

I love this tray that I found at TJ Maxx! A lot of my decor pieces come from there and One King’s Lane. I try to find pieces that aren’t too expensive so I am able to change them out frequently.

I love the coast and water more than everything. So, since I currently live in Colorado, I try at add little touches of coastal living where I can!
