A New Chapter, A New Apartment

For those who don’t know, I recently moved into an apartment in West Hollywood with my boyfriend. When we first moved out to LA, we were lucky enough to live with my brother to get settled, find jobs, and figure out where we wanted to live. If you live in LA, you understand the importance of loving your neighborhood and its surroundings, because we all know how long it takes just to get 2 miles…(still getting used to that aspect). I just got a job that’s literally 0.9 miles away which makes everything even that much more ideal and perfect given the location of the apartment.

Moving is proven to be one of the Top 5 most stressful things we go through in life, and I’ve done it around 5-6 times just since college. Phewf. Although it’s stressful and messes with our routines, it’s also SO exciting. It’s really only been within the past year that I’ve actually appreciated and felt genuine interest in decorating or furnishing a new home. I’m acknowledging more and more the effort that goes into making it feel spacious, clean, and somewhere you truly want to come home to. I’m also now at an age of understanding that it’s quality over quantity. I’d rather invest in a nice kitchen table than one that will fall apart in 6 months. We are the ones living in these places everyday, so we might as well make it as pleasant as possible, right?

Slowly but surely, our place is coming together piece by piece. It’s still a work in progress, but I really love how everything has come together thus far. It’s amazing how just a few additions can improve a room and make a 900 square foot apartment feel so cozy. Whether it be small or big details, it really does go a long way.

Life Hack: When in doubt, Target it out. That place has way more apartment friendly products than I thought – for reasonable prices && high quality. It’s my new saving grace and probably 90% where I got everything.
