feels like home.

A couple of weeks ago I promised a few pictures of my new apartment. Ever since James and I moved in together I couldn't be happier. I've super enjoyed furnishing and interior decorating more than I thought I would (ignoring the effect it's had on my wallet haha). We still need to furnish the spare room which we'll turn into a study, but we just haven't found the right desk and sofabed yet. And I know what you're thinking, but James had some input too haha. We both have the same taste and not only that but he trusts me a lot so that's good :) At first when we inspected this place, he didn't really like it and said it looked too white and 'clinical'. I saw the potential and spent a couple of days persuading him, but said if he really didn't like it we would keep looking. He said he trusted me so we applied and moved in within 2 weeks. A month later whilst we were in the kitchen, he pulled me aside and said, 'I'm glad you had vision and pushed me to get this place. I really like it.' Boom! #couplegoals

photo #1- Dining area- Antler candleholders from H&M. The candle was gifted to me by a work colleague.
photo #2- Lounge- Artwork gifted to me from James for my 24th birthday. I added the gold leaf myself. Matching cushion is from Target.
photo #3- Study nook reflecting my lounge area- This regal mirror I found on Gumtree for $120. One of the best buys of my life. I decorate my couch with Yoshi, Snoopy and the Target cushion pictured above :) The rug I bought from Rugs-a-Million and is an amazing microfibre texture. The TV unit and geometric stool table were bought online.
photo #4- One of my best friends gifted me the Chanel coffee book as a housewarming present. The diffuser is my favourite smell ever, DL&Co 'Thorn Apple'.

I might post some more photos when the place is a bit more furnished, but this will have to do for now :)
