It's been a hot minute since we've talked about how my apartment decorating is coming along and that's probably because, well...I haven't made much progress.
I know, I know.
Between work and traveling lately, I'm starting to see why a lot of New Yorkers see their apartments as glorified closets and places to sleep at night. Because you're always out and about with something new to see around every corner.
Which, don't get me wrong, I love that about New York. But with winter almost here, I'm starting to realize how much I miss seeing my apartment as a refuge to come back to, my little escape from the hustle and bustle of the city (and let's face it, soon to be freezing temps).
That said, over the next few months, I'm refocusing on my apartment, hunting around at different antique and estate sales for accent pieces and the ever elusive perfect sized couch. But my first order of business? Updating my bedroom. Of course, when you live in a studio like I do, it's hard to draw the line between where you sleep and where everything else goes -- that's just the nature of living in less than 500 square feet. I've found though, that when my bed is made with all the right things to make me feel a sense of ease all within reaching distance (candles, books, a cuddly dog who I share the bed with and my favorite hand cream by Aesop), I feel much more comfortable and secluded in my "sleeping space."
As for this bedding? While I'm admittedly much more of a white linens gal, I love how this set by Bluebellgray adds the right amount of color, with a moody deep blue as a neutral setting. And in a weird way, for all my Sex and the City fans out there, it remind me of Carrie's bedding, which is always a win in my book. Granted, my little abode is very much a work in progress (still trying to figure out exactly what I want to put on all those blank walls), but little by little, it's already starting to feel more like me every day.
Oh, and I think Elvis approves of the new bedding, which is always the true test.
