After months of thrifting, vintage shopping, and styling, I’m ready to show you my *mostly* finished apartment.
I moved into my current place in August 2021 and have been slowly but surely making it home. So far, it’s definitely my favorite apartment that I’ve lived in. It just feels right and cozy.
Without further ado, let me give you a lil tour of the space!
When you walk into the apartment, you are met with a couple of Purple Rain original lobby prints. I picked these up at the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con. They were such a fun find, and I knew I could fit them into my space somehow.
In the living room, I have a Valley of the Dolls movie poster hanging. I also have a basic IKEA couch. I added a few colorful pillows to the space along with some velvet and patterned floor cushions. My coffee table luckily fits two floor cushions perfectly; it was a thrifted find from the Green Bay ReStore.
Also, in my living room, I have a bench shelf. It’s more for decor than it is for actually lounging on. On top of the bench, I like to keep my on-the-go necessities. On the shelves, I have a stack of my favorite books, and a few vintage finds.
To the left of the bench, I have a plant that I’ve proudly kept alive since moving in. On the right-hand side, I have candles and a few of my favorite prints. First, there’s the iconic Bettie Page. Next to her, is my favorite girl in comics: Tank Girl.
I’m very happy that I have the room in this apartment for a dedicated workout corner. I just have a big basket that I keep all of my equipment in/next to. I also have a big wooden mirror in this space that I found at the Green Bay Restore.
From the living room space, we can move into the dining area. In the entrance arc, I have a coffee cart complete with k-cups and various syrups. In the dining space, I have a shabby chic table from Ye Old Goat with two chairs on one side and a bench on the other. All of the seating is covered with blankets and some throw pillows for a cozy feel. On the wall, I have a Casablanca movie print of Rick in front of his bar.
One of my favorite things in the dining space is my music section. I have a stand that’s a repurposed newspaper holder for my record player. Alongside it, I have a crate and my boombox (yes, I still have a healthy collection of CDs).
From the dining room, you enter the kitchen. In this space, I also have a touch of artwork/prints. There’s a Colectivo coffee poster and a Frida Kahlo print hanging above the stove. On the fridge, I have another Bettie Page, a Marilyn Monroe, and Van Gogh’s sunflowers.
My kitchen is home to my baby: my pink espresso machine. I had been dreaming of this espresso machine for a while, so I finally got it when I moved into this apartment.
Speaking of drinks, I have a basket stocked with bottles to host. The cute cowgirl bottle opener was another Ye Old Goat find.
There’s not a whole lot that I need to show off in my bathroom; it’s literally just your basic bathroom complete with a toilet, sink, and tub/shower. However, I will show you my very fitting wall art. This is a piece that I usually get quite a few comments on.
Last but certainly not least, here’s my bedroom! I kept the room pretty simple to allow my orange velvet comforter to really pop. I have two Amy Winehouse prints, a Marilyn Monroe, and quite a few Cindy Sherman postcards prints. Something I would love to add to this space is a black and white Bettie Page.
Styling this apartment has been and continues to be a fun project to work on. I’ve always wanted a space that feels creative and versatile. I feel like this apartment is exactly that.
Thank you for following along with the tour! Feel free to let me know if there is any additional apartment content that you would like to see.
