After renewing our lease for a third year (so wild), my roommate and I decided it was time to up our apartment decorating game. I’d been wanting to update my bedroom for a while, and we decided to do the living room and bathroom as well. Sometimes you gotta grow up and get rid of those college decorations.. ya know?
Living in NYC can be tough when you don’t have much space. But I’ve found that by keeping things light and airy, it can help your space feel bigger too. The next step on my list is to declutter… but that might take a while 🙂
I loved the color scheme I had going on in my apartment already, so I just updated the bedding + pillows! Most of the new bedding came from Target and Urban, and I decided to upgrade my sheets with comfy white linens. It’s crazy how much of a difference new sheets can make, and this set from Allswell is amaze. (PS- their sheet sets are on sale right now!) I feel like I’m sleeping in a hotel bed every night now 🙂
A few other favorites are my gold jewelry holder and frame from Kendra Scott’s home collection and the clear headband holder from Amazon! KS is my fave jewelry brand, but their home line is next level too.

Our bathroom is pretty small, as per the NYC standard, but we found that switching to a white shower curtain made a huge difference! I just had to buy the “get naked” bathmat when I saw it… I mean it’s sassy + blush pink.. so me.
Just like the new sheets, getting these fluffy white towels made a world of a difference too! I first discovered Weezie from their cute makeup towels, and now have the entire line in multiple colors, oops. I found out that it’s actually a female-run company and the founders are total girl-bosses which makes it an even better purchase!

Next up is the living room! We had been wanting a new couch and my roommate decided to grab this one when it went on sale (s/o to Martha!). I switched out our coffee table a few months ago and love the new size. We went with a light patterned rug to make the room look bigger again.

Finally, how cute is our new doormat?! I love making people feel welcome at my apartment and this is the perfect way 🙂 I found this from the cutest Etsy shop, and she was able to customize it for our home!
