in three months i'm headed off to grad school!! ah campus life. okay so i'm not exactly living in a dorm... more like a spacious studio with a dishwasher (i live in downtown Manhattan...to me, a dishwasher is like...really a luxury). but nonetheless, i've been thinking about how to spruce up my new space and make it feel happy and cozy. first things first... a girl must have a chic bathroom and nice bedding!
and yes, this is shocking, but i'm doing it all on a budget. yes, me of the Proenza Schouler & Alexander Wang. hey...chic doesn't always mean expensive!
first... i think i want to do a blue situation.
i love ombre. and i'm assuming i'll be seeing this in the reflection of my mirror when i get ready, and my dark brown hair will really pop against this as my back-drop (important things to consider). $19.99 target.com
bath mat... in navy blue obviously. navy blue is my absolute all time favorite color in the history of all colors. it's SO chic. and i like the texture of these. $24.95 cb2.com
next. it's a studio so technically it's not a bedroom, but you know what i mean.
i think it's really important to have two bed situations. so this is #1. i love stripes, this look so easy-Saturday-morning comfy chic. with either beige sheets or dark brown sheets (both of which i already have). perf. duvet, $99.99, target.com
for bed look #2, i love these sheets with a khaki duvet (which i already have). it's a happy sheet print and then a solid comforter... perfect opposite of #1. i'm all about options. sheets, $148, anthropologie.com
apartments are so fun! i LOVE to decorate. the living/dining space is up next.
oh and my saturday afternoon jams? Jack White's album. if you're not listening to it...you better start right now!
