Making the most of a studio apartment
As some of you may have seen, I consistently write "funny" tweets about my apartment using Jimmy Fallon's #MyFirstApartment.
Let's say that my first place is far from the nicest... and I'll leave it at that.
I rented a studio right out of school because, well, I had to adult at some point. And because, I wanted to pretend I was a city girl in SF or NYC and what better way to do that, right?
Anyway, I wanted to share some photos of my decor, because if I do say so myself, I made the most of the space I was given, and on a budget. Most of my shopping was done at TJ Maxx, Ross, World Market, Francescas, Target, and Urban Outfitters. Oh, and The Nest — a local store that buys from yard sales and what not around town, very cool stuff.
Take a look...
Far left: I used my grandma's old hat bag for my nightstand and books.
Far right: My grandparents old typewriter, dried flowers of course.
See above more full views of the living room in to the kitchen and (no) TV area.
And now we make our way toward the kitchen/dining room...
Here we go... to the kitchen/view of Reno.
Above see my coffee corner/nook, wine books, and other kitchen stuff.
If nothing else, this experience has taught me what it is like to live alone, to fend for myself. It has taught me that no matter the situation you can make it a good one, and that with a positive attitude, anything is possible.
It also taught me that I dig my taste in interior, and that I don't want to live alone again for at least a year or so.
Peace out, crazy place. #myfirstapartment
