Besides a few extra touches, I think it is safe to say, “I AM FINALLY DONE DECORATING OUR APARTMENT!” Yay! I hope Louis doesn’t hold me to that statement…I do take after my mom by having an eagerness to constantly redecorate. That being said, I am very content and happy with how our apartment looks and feels now!
As soon as you enter our apartment, we have a combined living/dining/desk area…
We were so happy to do a “table swap” with my parents before we moved! They received our table to do an amazing breakfast room makeover, and they gifted us with this table! It fits so perfect in our space. The mirror was also something I snagged from the Bergstrom home 🙂 The small wall on the right was the perfect spot to display our Aggie Diplomas (whoop!), since it is right by the desk.
Our “entertainment center” is made up of 2 bookshelves and a TV stand from Ikea. I love Ikea furniture because it is well priced and they have so many different options for various combinations. Poor Louis hates building it all I’m sure, but when my parents visited they bought him an electric drill as an early birthday gift…I’m sure that helped speed up the process 🙂 The 3 maps behind our TV are
crooked from my mom and represent important places in our relationship (where we met, College Station, and Disney World). Our next big purchase will hopefully be a bigger TV to fill the wall space! I’m still playing around with our bookshelves, and I hope to add some picture frames soon! (Louis probably thinks that’s silly and that we should fill the shelves with more books :)).
This is where we spend most of our evenings 🙂 My favorite things in this room are our Pottery Barn lamps! They were a very generous wedding gift, and I love the warmth they bring to our living room! The mercury glass mixed with the burlap shades brings a classy, cozy feel. The moss letters were made for our wedding by Louis’s dad, so I purchased a gold ampersand (with a coupon!) and the black frame (90% off!) from Hobby Lobby to display them behind the couch. I love a good framed initial, and I love how this turned out! Granted, it is crooked, but after the 4th nail hole on the right side, I just decided to leave it. So sue me.
Although, I am a pretty atrocious cook, I do love our kitchen! The tile backsplash, granite counters, and cabinet color are right up my alley. Fun fact: While I was hanging the ‘G’ in LANG, the ‘N’ fell off the wall and into my container of nails causing them to explode all over the kitchen while I was balancing on one of our dining table chairs. After this incident, Louis forbid me from standing on any chairs…
We JUST finished our bedroom today, and I could not love it any more. Louis helped me paint last night, and I hung the wall decorations today. The final picture is the closest representation to the wall color in real life. It is so fresh and calm; I love it!!!
Our bathroom is nothing crazy…I do love that we have a double vanity though! Also, there is a frosted window in our shower, which I like because the sun shines in and warms my body wash and shampoo. 🙂 Side note: Our rugs are Microdry Memory Foam Rugs in gray from Bed Bath & Beyond, and they are like heaven for your feet.
I hope you enjoyed the tour! Come visit some time! 🙂
