I moved in about a year ago, and this was my very first apartment on my own. This is also my first time living alone, and let me tell you, I have loved it. I’ve had some really great roommates that have become some of my best friends, but I’ve also had roommate horror stories, so I am very happy to be living on my own for the time being.
Home decor and interior design have always been passions of mine. Whether it was redecorating my childhood room, or planning my dorm room decor, I have always loved watching a space come together.
I lived at home for a year after college to save money while I was beginning my first job and figuring out what I wanted to do next. Thankfully, I had a lot of time to figure out what I wanted my first apartment to look like. I began shopping sales and keeping my eyes open for fun pieces at great prices.
Since I was a recent college grad, I really needed to decorate on a budget. In the end, all of the bargain shopping and sale hunting was absolutely worth it!
