My Home, My Space


What is your favorite area in your home and why? 

Hey! Laura here, sharing my favorite space with you! I decorated it for my sister and we both couldn't have been happier with the result! We had a really modest budget so I had to make sure we made each penny count! Luckily my sister totally trusted me to come up with anything, and knowing her she loves anything be achy and feminine, so I was inspired to create a space that reflected just that.



Our jump of point was the vintage faux bamboo bar cart, I found it at a thrift shop and new it had to be in her life! The space is about 500sq Ft, what it lacks in size it makes up in amazing natural lighting. We really wanted to play up the the whole beach vibe(without being to literal). I chose light shades of blues, and jades, some pale pink and lots of brass and gold. The sofa is from IKEA, the lamp and coffee table are thrifted. 

The desk lamp is from Indigo, and the turquoise lamp on the side table is from HomeSense (Home Goods). Since we were working on a small budget and Ikea was a big part of that, I really didn't want it to look like every other apartment decorated with the same pieces. We thrift often, and go to vintage markets a lot to find unique pieces. 



This place is super cozy, and everyone always remarks of how bright and feminine it feels! I think we achieved out goal for sure, and all for under $1500.
