This post is long overdue but oh well. I’ve received many questions about my studio apartment tour in the Everygirl (mostly about my pink ikat rug!), so I wanted to share a few more photos and provide some of the sources too. My favorite place to shop for my apartment is Home Goods (and Craigslist too), so a lot of those things can’t be sourced. But if I left out anything, leave me a comment and I’ll tell you where it’s from.
Ikea dresser (old) | cube | Home Goods mirror | lamp | DIY art | Osborne and Little wallpaper
I love my little “dressing area” when I step out of bed onto a soft flotaki rug.
Desk | Ghost Chair | Notebooks | lamp
When I actually do sit down to write at my desk, it’s a fantastic place to work. But let’s be honest, I’m mostly blogging from my bed or couch.
Blogs and Coffee print | framed Missoni pansy fabric | framed yearbook cover
Kitchen Aid Mixer | Apron | Measurement Print | my own lemon paintings
My mixer’s name is Ruby and she’s fabulous, isn’t she?
West Elm Tray | Home Goods wine rack | Crate & Barrel champagne flutes (old) | Paper Source paper that I put behind some of the cubes | my own art
Ikea Table | Chairs | Bookshelf | Bar Table from Home Goods which I spray painted gold
My apartment is never this clean btw!
Ikat rug | Flokati Rug | Duvet
A wall of windows really provides great light in my apartment and makes it feel so much bigger than it is.
French pillow | Coffee table and side table: found on Craigslist | Couch: passed down from a friend | Gray fleece chairs: Bloomingdales from the 1980s | metallic pillows from Urban Outfitters (old)
For my wallpaper entry, I tore out full pages of magazines with images I love – food (the fired chicken photo might be my favorite), fashion, interiors, cute boys, colorful designs – and using double sided tape, I put them up in rows. I think there’s about 150 pages up on the wall. I can easily remove one image if I find another one I like.
Also, how embarrassing. I forgot to clean up that messy area above my fridge where I store bags of chips and pans. Oops. :)

If you haven’t already, head over to the Everygirl and read more about my apartment.
Oh, and if you want to see something hilarious, check out this post from 2009 where I share some photos from my then brand new apartment. It feels nice to look back and see how both my apartment and I have grown.
