NEW & VERY 1st Apartment Tour: Denver
photo by: The Gamer Geek.
I am finally settled in my brand new....very first...adult...alone apartment in DENVER! Come check it out! I tried to make it nerdy & girlie with all of my most favorite loves!
Instagram! They were a great deal. Are gorgeous and have a lot of storage! If you are an LA resident you should defiantly check them out!
I bought two of the lamps in North Hollywood at a shop, Practical Props. I walked passed it every week for a year on my way to Republic of Pie. I knew I had to get them as soon as I got my own place.
A Silent Film on the other table and The Filthy Souls on this one! The little LA card I got at a cute shops in Echo Park called Shout And About. I just adore how the table looks all set up with my favorite things!
An up close shot of what I've typed up on my typewriter. I love this quote and it is such great inspiration. I can't wait to see what I'm inspired to type next.
Ikea rug and table. The Gamer Geek helped me put this together! We make a great team!
My desk, which I purchased from the same Insta as the side tables. My vintage camera collection. Rocks from San Diego, lavender from LA and shells from Florida. I love a neat clean, simple work space!
Not totally in love with my TV area, but it does the job. Showcasing my favorite books, movies and vinyl. I have my wand and sonics displayed in front of the tv and that frame needs to be moved to a wall somewhere, I just am not sure where yet! You can see the dining room from here....
I get a lot of natural light in my place. I just need to get some curtains for a bit more privacy when they are open. I love having them open, but with all the construction still going on and me being on the first floor, I get of passers by. Curtains coming very soon!
Shout And About. Check out their Insta it is super cute!
Plum Deluxe arrived at my door! Not only are they GORG teas, they are super tasty! My favorite is Reading Nook Blend Black Tea. They have a tea of the month club! AND their slogan is Making Moments Matter, which is what I've been trying to do in this new year...and life!
Favorite things details in the kitchen. My framed Republic of Pie gift card. I couldn't leave LA without a memento of my favorite spot. SDCC photos, music and friends. All my loves.
Upon decorating and furnishing my apartment, I never realized that I was such a minimalist. I have tons of prints, posters, and toys to display but I really don't want to. I like the basics and through my divorce, moving out and moving a second time I got rid of a lot of things. I like things that mean something to me. Art that is from people I love or that I or they have created. I want each piece of my apartment to mean something. Not just have a lot of stuff.
It's been two weeks nerds! I'm settled in my place, seeing friends, discovering the city AND have two jobs lined up + possible contract work + working on my 100 Cups of Coffee first draft to be finished and passed to a potential publisher by the end of THIS month!
I cannot believe I've arrived at this place. Looking back, I knew it would happen, but I always doubted myself. FINALLY taking a leap of faith paid off and I'm as happy as ever. Thank you nerds for always sticking by me and encouraging me. I love you all!
