These past 2 weeks have been absolutely crazy for me! I just started my senior year of school, and moved into my new apartment, which I LOVE! Along the way, I have been buying things to decorate my room.
Going into this semester, I knew I was going into a new experience of having an apartment. I lived in a dorm for 2 years, so this was all new for me.
I did not plan on decorating extensively. I knew this place would be temporary for me, so I thought no need to spend loads of money on a temporary space.
After moving in I decided I needed to make my space cozy, comfortable, and my happy place to come home to and love.
I went shopping at Five and Below, and Big Lots to pick up a few things. I knew I did not want anything too much, so I did what I wanted creatively to make the space as I wanted it.
I found cute storage pieces that give my room color, and serve as my "dresser". I really like the way it came out. I made a DIY Vanity , to do my hair and make- up at each day! It isn't much, but it is just enough to help me get ready for the day and feel ready to take on all I need to do!
I have done all white decor before, the "minimalist" look. I enjoyed it! But, as a creative , right-brain person, I love and NEED color. I need color, movement, texture, line, rhythm, and variety.
I love the energy that the colors bring excitement to the room, and how the passion in my vision boards bring me energy.
My lights create a warm, cozy feeling that I like to have at the end of the day. They help me daydream about my goals , and meditate. They help me calm down after all the hustle and bustle I face as a full time senior taking 18 credits!
