living room thoughts

I will admit this: I am horrible at pulling the trigger on anything that is permanent, i.e. decor for our apartment. I get overwhelmed with serious anxiety and freak out. Perhaps I need therapy.

However, I finally replaced that rug with this one and got this table. It’s only taken me like six months to figure it out. 

At first, I thought for sure I wanted color. Color, color, color. Then I realized that I’m afraid of color except for small doses. So, huge change of plans and enter the below color palate.


Yea, I know this is a bedroom but just pretend that the bed is a couch.


I bought the coffee table from CB2 and I’m seriously lusting after two gold poufs for under the table a la the photo above. I mean, how awesome is this?


The ceilings are ridiculously high in my apartment and I’ve been wracking my brain for something fun to do. We’re both kind of obsessed with maps but I can’t find one like this all blue one anywhere. So if you know, please tell me.

Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?

    we’ve been searching for huge maps for our loft for a while and seriously can’t find anything we love that’s that size under $1000, which i refuse to spend on paper. if you find somewhere, let me know. please.

    Love all the choices – neutral is the way to go IMO – then you can change out colors with seasons or when you hate it. Try googling map wall paper that might not be on piece but more like pieces! :)

    PS – I am starting to pick out new stuff for our move but i’m having anxiety. like really bad.

    Sounds like you’re going to have a wonderfully decorated place! I’ve been dying for a gold pouf to put in my new apartment for next year. They add something special to a room. Also, I love your blog & am your newest follower!

    Cheers, Elizabeth

    Great buy… I’m totally in love with lucite, but you already knew that. $280 seems pretty decent for lucite furniture these days too! I’d love a ghost chair but don’t really have $800 to buy one 😉
