MC Home

When I first moved into my new apartment I was overwhelmed with the daunting task of buying furniture. 
But now it has become actually fun to find special pieces to create a space that is truly me. 

 Since it's a studio, the bed pretty much dictates the rest of the apartment.
 Once I had my bed in place, it was easy to envision what else I really needed. 
There is a lot of natural light (I'm excited about my low electric bill!) 
so I wanted to keep the decor light, airy and colorful.
 I decided on a loose color scheme of white, black, tan/cream, 
turquoise, and my fave color - purple. (Look familiar?)

I spent last weekend scouring thrift stores and vintage shops for a dresser. 
After hours of searching, my friend and I were feeling defeated. I then turned to Craigslist and 
found the perfect shabby chic dresser...white, distressed, and had mix-matched Anthropologie knobs!

As for a coffee table, I wanted something unique to add a playful vibe to the space. 
Enter: a one-of-a-kind turquoise coffee table I found on Etsy. 
I am literally obsessed with this coffee table. When I woke up this morning, 
I rolled over and smiled right when I saw it. 

My apartment is the definition of a work in progress, so stay tuned for what I find next!

I'm sorry I have been MIA from my blog lately. I just moved into my
new apartment and there was a huge fiasco with setting up my cable/internet. 
As a self-proclaimed TV-whore, the past week has been torture! 
But I am happy to announce I have returned to the world! 

I have been consumed by decorating my new place. I own literally no furniture 
after moving to LA a few months ago, and only being able to bring what would fit in my car. 
I have been on Pinterest non-stop getting ideas and furniture shopping for hours. 
As I settle in, I will share decor posts. Stay tuned!

Scarf Headband

I never wear my hair up, unless I'm at the gym or cleaning my bathroom. 
So when I went to Huntington Beach this past weekend I wanted to find a way 
to wear my hair down but still keep it tamed from the ocean breeze. 
Enter: the silk scarf turned headband.
