APARTMENT THERAPY

Ever since I moved to NYC, I've become a self-proclaimed apartment addict. After becoming increasingly obsessed with interiors,
I now spend my time in between studies daydreaming as I compulsively rifle through interior decor mags and design blogs.
Although I'm a student on a (painfully tight) budget, I've been thinking of ways to make me and Clay's tiny Upper East Side studio
a little more glam (and a lot more colorful!). Here are a few interiors that have been inspiring me lately:
I love the bold, saturated colors mixed with muted jewel tones. Such a fun, eclectic mix of color, print, and texture! Source: Civility Design
I love this chic interior designed by Vancouver-based interior design and home furnishings company, The Cross Design and Decor.
Such a perfect mix of sophistication with a feminine flare.

I'll definitely have to take part in some extreme thrifting and DIYing if I want our place to be anywhere close to these beautiful spaces!
Right now I'm looking for a great temporary wallpaper in a selection of prints (damask, floral, geometric designs). I've already looked into Tempaper,
but if you guys know of any others, let me know! Also, I'd love to know your favorite interior design blogs! xo Antonia

  3. Interior decorating is one of my obsessions. My mom and I could spend hours in furniture/decor stores. The mix of pinks and blues in the first couple photos is amazing.

  26. I am in LOVE with the dining area picture with the white furniture, pink flowers, and best of all, that fab chandelier! These photos depict such interesting decor with the almost all white room with one splash of a bright (and unexpected) accent color of turquoise or hot pink. Great post & excellent pictures.

  27. Daydreaming of interior decor fills my days very often! I love these photos you have come up with, because even though there's a lot of different colours and even styles used in the apartment, it seems chic & cohesive (english is not my first language so I hope it's the correct word ^^)

    :) Fabulous blog, love your sense of style!
