So it’s about time I post some photos of my old place (now that I’m leaving, go figure). These photos were all taken at various times throughout the year, at various stages of completion. For example the dining room is no longer that empty looking, and for quite some time those stripes painted on the wall were unfinished, blue tape and all. You may notice a few recurring themes, like lots of stripes and diy projects, many of which I actually took photos of but never quite made it onto the blog! Note to self: must get better about that in the new year. Anyway I hope you like these photos, I’m bidding a tearful goodbye to this space which I poured lots of love and many diy hours into. But nonetheless, many new and exciting decor adventures are to come!

  1. Omg I want to do drawers like that! Where did you get the handles and gold accents? Did you use a sealant after painting? Love it so much! Thank you for the inspiration!

  2. DIY projects always impress me, every time I buy stuff for my house I always look for DIY projects. Anyway, we’ll definitely keep these ideas in mind the next time we’ll be redecorating our house.
