Navy & White Decor

Having a great space is important to overall ambiance but sometime it is how you use the space that really puts a look together.  Whether you live in a dorm, 1-bedroom apartment, or a large home, your furniture layout, decor, and colors make all the difference.  Since my husband and I recently bought a home, it has been really fun to get our own styles.  It was very fascinating to see the rooms “before” we lived in the home and the “after” we made it our own.  We did not do much to the space besides paint the mantel- we even left the same color walls.  It really goes to show you how different a space can look with decor.  The room is almost done.- just need curtains… any suggestions?

Small Space Decor

As a twenty-something newly married, working gal on-the-go, I wanted to make the most of our small space condo.  I also wanted to make my space feel like home by customizing and decorating to my personal style. With a limited budget and some resourceful creativity, here is what we did to our place.

1. Bold master bedroom.

We were a little nervous at first but went for it.  The color here is Benjamin Moore Miami Green.  Comforter is Martha Stewart Shimmer collection. Oh, & Jingles made it into this picture, this is her fave room because we get a lot of sunlight here. 🙂

2. Beach themed bathroom.

Since beach-themed items are accessible and cheap free on the beach, it was the easiest decor to pull off in a bathroom.  From real seashells to a bag of seaglass, these accents were very inexpensive & effortless.

White mirror- Homegoods, Corner shelves- IKEA,

3. Wine as Decor.

Both pretty & extrememly handy.  Wall Wine racks- IKEA

4.  Safari Living Room.

Why not use animal print for pillow couches?  With a little real photography from a family member in Africa and some bold prints, we were able to pull of a chic looking space for our living room.
