Baby’s First Apartment Mood Board

I have begun to nest.

Oh yes, I am one of those girls. I’m type A, I’m a planner, and I blog. All things that bring me to create things like this:

Oh yes, it is a powerpoint presentation of what I want my first apartment to look like.

Does anyone else have moods like this, where they need to plan out and visually see their entire life? I can’t be the only one.

It’s a time in my life where I’m preparing to go to law school (mama Elle Woods would be proud) and preparing to move into a new space, and new life.

As much as I value being able to live at home as I save for law school (my parents have excellent design skills and I know where all the food is in the house), I am practically itching to move out. Truth be told, I’ve been itching to move out since sophomore year of college.

I have already found the kind of car I want (once I get my license–lol I’m 22), joined the local housing Facebook groups, and, of course, have been Pinning away on my Pinterest boards. Now, although it is a work in progress, I can bring you the mood board of my first apartment:

Oh yes, I am this extra. Wait until I actually get to go shopping! If I had to describe some of the ideals of my dream apartment, I would say they would be: bright, upcycled, efficient, antique-meets-trendy, and warm. I want to foster an environment where I can relax and feel, well, at home, where I can feel like myself without having to put on a show. When I was in college I became a big fan of studying at the library or in a classroom, so I’ll probably spend most of my time there, but I want to be able to come home to a pressure-free space.

Ideally I would love to be as waste-free as possible. I’d love a little garden with fresh herbs, fruits, and veggies, and I would absolutely love to start composting and recycling on a more serious level.

Of course, we will have to see what my first year of law school and first apartment will really be like, but why not aim high?

 

XOXO,

Kat
