Hi!

I feel that everyone needs some sort of creative outlet, or passion project. This is mine. I share original and curated content of everything from photographs of my home, to my love for plants, to my carefully curated playlists. My hope is that this blog will serve as a source of inspiration for you as well.

At Home: Josh's Adorable Thrifty-Inspired Loft in Washington, D.C.

I am always so inspired by how other people decorate their homes, but I REALLY love to see the creativity one has when it comes to decorating smaller sized spaces, especially since I live in a small space myself. When I originally saw photo snippets of my friend Josh's new apartment, I couldn't wait to see more, so I bugged him for photo updates as much as I could without becoming a nuisance. 

At just 600 square feet, this loft-style apartment is packed with an abundance of natural light, charm, and character, and when you have that, who the hell needs more square footage? I love how he's transformed this place. It's so welcoming and cozy, and he's definitely surrounded by all of his favorite things, like that growing vinyl record collection that I got my eye on. 

I live in a newly renovated warehouse in Washington, DC. My space is inherently very industrial, with high ceilings, exposed brick and piping, and concrete floors, which I love. So I decided to try and soften the space with my color palette while still staying true to the origin of the building, and on a budget! Everything is largely thrifted (frames on the living room wall, lamps, my side table), hand-me-downs that I DIY’d (Tiffany Blue storage piece, the old trunk turned coffee table), or hacked IKEA (my television unit that I turned gold).

"I'm doing a lot with little space, so clean and minimal became very important. I'm still buying, thrifting, and DIY'ing, but it's been a fun journey turning this space into my own."

Thanks for the special peek into your humble domain, Josh!
