At Home With Poor Little It Girl

Back in November I really got the itch to re-do our apartment. Me and Adam have lived in DC together for 2 years in our small, 750 square foot space, and while I loved it, I was ready for a change. Our apartment was made up of mismatched pieces from my old studio in Atlanta and Adam’s random “boy” furniture from years of bumping around from city to city. I’m not a decorator in any sense, so I gladly partnered with the amazing team at Havenly to help me design our space! I told them the specs of our apartment, what furniture I wanted to keep (bed, coffee table), what I needed (a place for Adam’s record player, a bigger couch) and what I wanted to get rid of (our old end tables and area rug) and Shelby (my designer) worked her magic! I was sent designs of the space and we discussed what I loved and some minor changes and then here we have it, our new space!

One of the most important aspects that I explained to the team at Havenly was wanting a space that worked for both Adam and myself, meaning I didn’t want the apartment to feel too girly or too “staged” for photos. That meant no pink (our favorite color is green) and nothing that felt too feminine. Our wall of built in bookshelves (which the previous owner had installed) needed to be the highlight of the space but still reflect both our personalities. It took a couple months to get everything together (lesson learned: hire painter, don’t try and DIY!) and while the space can still use a few new pieces (we would love to add a leather chair to the living room) I have never been so happy to call this place my home.

I feel like Mother Nature is playing a trick on all of us. She teases us with warm weather and fresh flowers, and then bam! We’re back to 30 degrees and snow flurries. I living in a daze of wishing and hoping for 75 and sunny and things just can’t seem to work out in my favor. So what are we all doing instead? Pretending it’s spring, of course! Despite the cooler temps, I was determined to wear my new cut out blouse and neon heels, sure it was with a warm-ish denim on denim look but that’s ok. Spring, where are you?!
