Here is a little update to my original home/studio tour!
I've been having a lot of fun reading through the Style Your Space E-Course by Rachel Denbow - it has so much great advice. I've mentioned before that we rent an apartment in a 100 year old house that has great wood floors & windows, but a lot decorating challenges, too! Here is some cute artwork I made using one of the course tutorials:
The course covers some helpful topics like "working with what you've got," "scale, balance, & composition," "rules to follow / rules to break, " and my favorite "dealing with ugly." There are also DIY projects, inspiring house tours, and tips for photographing your home. Finding your style can be a challenge when you are on a tight budget, renting, or just starting out so it's really helpful to have a bunch of advice and how-to's from an expert!
I got inspired to rearrange our books around the non-functional fireplace (I found a similar fireplace arrangement here on Apartment Therapy).
Then I was able to re-use the bookshelf for storing shoes & accessories in the bedroom - something I've been needing since we moved in last year! The ceramic bowls on top hold jewelry and the vintage train case has scarves and other cute stuff inside.
I also hung a few pieces of artwork... I don't get to do too much of that because nails don't agree with our plastered walls. These pieces were all light enough to hang with tape: )
There's no place like home!
