New apartment for my new future

I’m excited to announce that I will be moving across country to go to graduate school in a few months. The only downside is that I’ve been stuck with renting an apartment that is well… less than ideal.  A few problems I think that I will encounter are:

1) Poor lighting

2) Old boring appliances

3) Small Living room

4) Odd “L’ shaped bathroom

5) Selecting a good color scheme for each room ( can’t paint tho 😦 )

Me being an aspiring designer, I have it in my mind to try and pre-plan a few things before I arrive in the space and document the journey. I have a some design ideas jotted down but I would love to get your input. So, over the next three months I plan to post polls, pictures, and when I arrive share with you the before and afters as of now.

As of now here is a picture of what I will be working with as well as the floor plan. Comment and let me know what you think!





Never Grow Up

Apart of me has always wanted to build or at least temporarily own a treehouse. Why? Maybe its because my dad never let us have one in fear of broken bones. Or maybe it steams from my childhood fascination with the movie Hook. I really don’t know. What I do know is that they’re very high, seem very adventurous, and can be tricked out to look very cool. Heres some photos of ones I’ll never let my kids have… Also for more kinds check out
