Apartment Inspiration

Hello, World.

I am SO excited to announce that I recently signed a lease for a townhouse in Williamsburg, VA! Signing the lease made it feel much more real that I’m moving east, and that change is occurring, but I’m so excited! I’m living with two roommates, one from Alabama and one from New York. I met them at admitted students weekend, and they are both super super nice, and we were always be on the same page while we were looking a various places. Anyway, I could not be more excited about living OUT of the residence halls, and I am SO excited to begin decorating my little sanctuary of a room in the new place. After four years of dorm furniture and clutter, I’m going minimalist on the room layout. I want everything white and bright and airy and comfortable! In other words, I want hardly any clunky furniture, a lot of clean lines, and soft textures. So, today I wanted to share a little inspiration board, which is what I’m going for as of now!

As you’ve probably realized, I have a thing for gold, navy and blush together. I love the airy shade of blush, with the pop of glitz that is gold, and navy is classic and a color I never get sick of. I want white furniture, with a cute gallery wall, and candles. The way our townhouse is set up, I have the smallest room, so rather than have my desk in my bedroom, I’m going to commandeer the little loft space we have (my roommates approved) as an office space. In order to keep our place presentable and cute, I am going to do a clean white desk, with hopefully the gold scalloped bulletin board above it, a gold desk lamp, and some fun desk supplies! I also LOVE the idea of doing a padded, patterned chair with it. If I’m going to be a slave to my desk while in law school, I at least want to be comfortable!

In my bedroom, I plan to do the scalloped bed or something similar, with white bedding, colorful throw pillows, and a blanket at the foot of my bed, then I will keep all my books in a white bookcase, along with some nick knack items. I will also need to get a set of drawers because I have so many clothes… and I need to take my whole wardrobe with me since I can’t just run home and swap seasons. So, I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to items or rooms styles I want to emulate (it’s called ‘adulting’ because even though I’m an adult, moving into an actual townhouse makes it feel more real).

A lot of the items I am inspired by are a little expensive, so I’m going to look for cheaper versions, or may DIY some stuff! Regardless, I am so so excited to start looking for decorations and to work with my roommates on the rest of the house! One of my roommates already has some amazing stuff that she’ll be bringing so I think it’s going to be a great place!
