Remember #ProjectApartment? It’s still coming along. Way slower than I originally anticipated, but we’re getting somewhere. I officially renewed my lease last month so I knew that I wanted to do a couple more “permanent” things.
In college, I felt like I was constantly moving. Moving into dorms, out of dorms, into temporary dorms (for summer crew training), into houses, out of houses, overseas (for Henley training), back home, back to a dorm, and it went on and on. I never felt like I had a home; it was a constant sense of being in limbo. I guess because I’ve still had that feeling, it was weird to realize that I would be located at the same address for two whole years. What. That hasn’t happened since I lived at home in high school!
Of course, my apartment in the city is a rental (I filmed a “tour” of my apartment for Youtube!), but it’s definitely feeling like a real home. I recently had wallpaper put up in my bedroom and I just love it. The story of the wallpaper is crazy. I bought it from Anthropologie in the middle of the summer. But I had entered the wrong shipping address; in my defense, it was kind of close to my UPS box number… Even worse? Anthropologie called me three times to confirm the address and I kept insisting they had the right one. UGH. Yep.
Fast forward two months (and about fifteen emails back-and-forth with customer service) and the wallpaper magically appeared at my real address.
Was it worth it? Absolutely!
I picked out my monogrammed bedding the summer before I moved to NYC. I love the crisp white duvet, but it didn’t really “pop” against white walls. Now it’s clean and cute with the wallpaper behind it.
The wallpaper is so bright and really makes my room feel 10x bigger.
My little “Live Colorfully” pillow from Kate Spade… definitely a good motto, especially with the colorful wallpaper! The little pink puff was purchased on Rue La La.
I was a little worried about how my clear lamps would look in front of the wallpaper, but I kind of love it. They were purchased on Rue La La too.
