We live in a one-bedroom rental that is about 900 sq. ft in size, although it is spacious for a one- bedroom there never really isn’t enough room for all the toddler stuff. There isn’t much architecture happening here either, no interesting nooks or features just eight walls that make the living/dining/kitchen and the bedroom, the positives include nice big windows overlooking a trail, bright sunny mornings and an updated kitchen. Visually dividing the space while decorating it has been a challenge for me. Here are glimpses of our modest home:
The living room is my favorite part of the house, the grey color on the walls and the plum and blue accents make my heart happy every time. The rug is from overstock and I love how it defines the space. The sectional is from Macy’s, we will let go of almost all of the furniture when we buy our home, since its been a while and we are ready for a change. We got rid of the coffee table a few months ago to make space for the little one to move around, but I might pick up an ottoman someday.
The bedroom recently got a much deserved makeover, you can read about it here. I am happy with the way it looks now and the best part was that it was all under $100:
Here is the patio that I talked about in this post, we use it mostly in the summer:
Here is my little girl’s nook in the house (it almost never looks like this, she usually ransacks it the minute she wakes up). I made the initial-art for the pinterest challenge and table and chair is from Ikea.
I hope for a bigger house someday but this place will always be special to me as we welcomed our baby here and this has been her home for the first years of her life. Thanks for coming over!
