Apartment Pinspiration

As you all know I will be moving into an apartment that I just found at the end of July. To find out more about that go and read Amazing Blessings. I am so excited to move into my own place and for the first time in my life be able to decorate how I want. This will be my first time living by myself and I am really excited for the new adventure. I think that everyone should live by themselves at one point or another in their lives. Anyway, I have been pinning things for my new place as soon as I made the decision to live by myself and I am really excited to start decorating! So here are some of my favorite pins and what I am planning on doing for my lovely new home. So grab a drink and sit back y'all, picture overload is coming.

I absolutely completely and totally love this gallery wall by Tatortots & Jello. The pops of yellow with the classic white frames. It is just so perfect together and y'all know my obsession with yellow. I like how its not just picture frames and she also put a cute sign and the adorable H on that chevron fabric. I have a couple of big empty wall's in my apartment I could do this with. Now I just have to decide how to arrange my furniture. To see how Jen did this and find out where she got everything go and check out Tatortots & Jello, you won't regret it.

I LOVE this idea. I mean seriously how smart is Bobi for thinking of this?! Depending on where I put my couch this will be happening. I am so glad I found this on Pintrest and it led me to Bobi, she has some amazing things on her blog. To find out exactly how she did this go and visit her at Shoestring Sophistication.

I love this idea, using curtains instead of a door is so smart. Think of how much space you save with a big bulky door out of the way. I have a HUGE closet if you recall and this could defintely be an option as to decorating the doorway. I love this idea and to find out more about it go and visit Girlscene.

I really love this canopy above the bed. I think it is such a great simple way to draw your eye to the bed and make it dominate the room. I really love the way it is draped and I think it looks fabulous. I don't know if this will be an option in my room because of windows but we will see because I really like the way this looks. To see how this is done check out Dwellings by DeVore and all of the amazing rooms in her house.

I'm also really digging these candles in jars with the sand. You can bet your bottom dollar there will be at least 3 of these in my new place. I love the way this placement looks and I can already see where this will end up in my place. I'm really loving candles lately in glass jars and lanterns. I think they look so good together and they are so easy to switch out if you change your mind. Simple and cheap decorating! I love it! The only source I found for this beaut was at Wedding Bee, which if you are getting married and you haven't been there you should. You'll never leave but your wedding will be better for it.

Okay so this isn't that many pictures but I have a ton I could put up here and then you would all hate me for my obsessiveness with my apartment. So I limited myself to the big things I am thinking about doing. I can't wait to get started and show y'all everything I have planned. To see all of the plans/ideas I have for my apartment check out my Pinterest!
