New Beginnings

A new start always brings about new possibilities and adventures. I am starting a new one in a couple of different ways! I am a junior interior design major and just moved into a first apartment. I am living by myself in an apartment near my school for the summer. I've never done this before, but I can't say I hate it here after only a week! I'm also trying to manage two jobs and still find time for a social life! It's been so much fun decorating my first apartment and beginning this new adventure. I'm a color and design junkie and hope a few of you share the same joys and passions as I do!
The picture above is of my living room. I covered hand-me-down couches, found the end table on junk days, scored a deal on the vintage lamps, and recovered pillows with fabric from a upholstery outlet store. I love to play with color and have my space be fun and bright. The only problem is that I'm usually working on a very tight budget! I grew up learning to conserve money and now love to decorate my college spaces with minimal spending but adding monumental drama. I've been working and haven't had time to do much yet....but I can't wait for the finished product!
