I just started a new project. My apartment! I've really done no decorating to my space since moving in a year ago. As you can see the place has great bones but there are some areas that really need a lot of help. I am hoping to make a few simple, thoughtful, affordable changes to make a grown-up, organized space. If you care to join me, I'll be sharing all the details as I go along and luckily, I have some amazing help. Oh and you can always follow me on Twitter + Facebook for more details and snapshots. More next week!
Have a wonderful weekend!
can’t wait. this photo is lovely. your apartment looks incredibly like the one my sister lived in in portland…makes me want to pack my bags!
Fun! I rearrange/redecorate my apt. every few months. It’s so much fun. I can’t wait to see how yours pans out. It looks like your place has good character.
Oh! I love the subway tiles. Sometimes I think I could just live in my bathroom. White tiles, plants, and a bathtub. What more do you need!
Oooh, those do look like some lovely bones! It’s all about the details, isn’t it? Clean tile and towel and lush greenery do wonders for making a space more homey. Looking forward to seeing more from this new series. Have a great weekend!
So exciting! Your place looks amazing already, but can’t wait to see more of your ideas and plans.
oh this will be so fun! i dig your blog and your style, no doubt your apartment is going to be FAB! can’t wait to follow the progress! keep up the good bloggin’.
can’t wait to see what you do with the space!!
I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
Nothing more exciting than a house tour! Can’t wait. The bathroom is so fresh and lovely.
How exciting to start a new project! Check out my friend Audrey Sterk’s new line of hand-painted tables, wall art, and floor cloths. I think they could be a great addition to your apartment!
Fun! I’ve been wanting to redecorate so much, but since we’re planning to move in the next few months, there’s not much point. I can’t wait to see what you do!
Oh I can’t wait to see how you develop your lovely apartment decorating project 🙂 I do love the white-brick wall in the photo – is that staying or going?!
I’m following you on Twitter now, by the way – @clairemslight 🙂
thats exciting for you – and us!! cant wait to see more and hear about your plans and dreams!
Beautiful! I love walls of subway tiles in a bathroom (or a kitchen)–especially with such a beautiful, classic pedestal sink! I’m excited to see where you go with this fun project. Man, those Ikea cotton towels are the best thing they make as far as I’m concerned.
Your place looks gorgeous, Chelsea.
Can’t wait to see more.
what fun but your bathroom already looks lovely chelsea!
This is going to be so great! Yay Chelsea!
Oh, Yay! I will definitely care to follow along!
This is your apartment!? It’s beautiful!
So far so good, can’t wait to see more!
Looking good! Can’t wait to see more of it!
Wow. I can’t wait to follow along. That photo looks so bright and cheery. I wish my apartment had “good bones”. It’s just a very small, rectangle, one room studio. My project isn’t to decorate this year but to pare down. I need more space and since that’s not happening, the only option is to get rid of the useless, stuff I don’t like, don’t need, don’t use. Then, maybe, who knows, new curtains? lol
Wowza! Can’t wait to see more, it looks like you a perfect little pre-war thing going on.
You have such great taste Chelsea, I’m sure it will be lovely. I can’t wait to see what you do with your place.
mmm that tile, those fixtures! Your bathroom has beautiful bones! Can’t wait to see what you do with it – we are in the process of painting ours. Not such great material to work with, but at least we can translate lavendar walls and green trim (seriously?) into white trim and blue-green walls. And once the paint has cured, I think a blik decal in our (painted) shower, some new knobs and hooks on the walls.
I’m an interior designer from Melbourne, Australia – I loved your blog, I found it very inspiring. This is all new to me but I have just set up my own blog
You may like to check it out because I had so much fun doing it.
Thanks for providing me with such great entertainment!
That is very exciting. I am just about to start to do the same.
I love apartment projects like this, and your bathroom already looks like relaxation central. Can’t wait to read more!
oooo, what a fabulous bathroom!!
I can’t wait to follow along with what you do to your place.
Good luck! Can’t wait to see how it turns out!
really great one!!! 🙂 🙂
I cannot wait to see what you do!
I am working in the same project (my house)! Your space looks like it has a lot of potential, I think you’re off to a great start, Happy New Year!
Oh Yeah, what kind of Soap is that? Looks great.
