our living room inspiration

Another Thursday of Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. with Katie and Steph! How exciting! I’ve been super slacking on the blogging lately – but I hope you enjoy this twist on this week’s link up!

Also, if you missed last weeks – there is still time to enter the giveaway!

Winner will be announced tomorrow.


With moving to New York City being my first actual apartment (besides college), I could not tell you how excited I was to decorate and make this place mine (and a little bit Steve’s too).. When I first saw this picture on Pinterest, I knew it was my ultimate inspiration.

Now, the inspiration room is a little bit bigger than our shoebox apartment, but I think we came pretty close.

Please excuse our dying Yucca tree!
