Check Out My Place: Making Every Day Cuter.

Check Out My Place: Making Every Day Cuter.

I’m moving in two weeks! Usually in my world that means I’ve got a bad case of springtime wanderlust and I’m selling all my stuff to live out of suitcases for an unspecified amount of time before landing in an unspecified town. Flying by the seat of my newly-hemmed short shorts.
Well, I’m still selling all my stuff, but to move directly to a cute vintage loft in Downtown LA for some long overdue, believe-it-or-not, NESTING. It will be on a chic 9th floor right on the border of the Fashion and Art districts. My hand-me-down crap just ain’t gon’ cut it. It has SIX HUMONGOUS WINDOWS. I’ll need new EVERYTHING.

Now here’s where I know I’m finally turning into a grown-up. Last week, instead of my letting my inner teenager stop caring/cleaning my bedroom (because, why put it away if you’re just going to pack it soon anyway) and just pine the days away in my own filth until I move, I decided that every day should just be as cute as possible. Why not? I’ve had a rough year. I deserve a goddamn bedspread. And some cute floral twiggery. And an ochre batik lamp. Now. Life is too short for sheisty dormroom decor.

Should I even bother with The Before?:
BEFORE

No, because no one even sees the half-assed decor. My canine Otis Redding is stealing the show with his utter lugubriousness.

And, well, I was so excited to see this floral twig from Target in My Precious mint and coral Mum vase (from Eve!) that it made it into the before photos. Ewps.

After!

  • That dog is awesome ! What type is it? Otis Redding ? Wicked name choice too.
    Looks like too much natural light for a home theater there.

  • Can’t believe you are moving out of that great space; I love it. And the lighting makes such a surprising difference to the look of the Batik Damask Bedding. In the top shot it looks rough and highly textured [I'm guessing it's the print] yet in the lugubrious shot below it, it looks smooth and fine cotton-ish. Don’t go.

  • Thanks Mike! He’s a rescue mutt. Part German Shepard we’re pretty sure, but he keeps growing so perhaps he’s part St Bernard?!

  • …nice beddings…i agree with you at the end of the day a rough year as you said we all deserve a nice and comfy bedspread…keep it up as cute and clean as you can…
