City Girl Apartment Chic

16 Jan
I have a girlfriend living in the city who is getting her own place soon. She was asking for some small space decorating advice, and of course I jumped on that. There has always been that little part of me that wanted my own “Carrie Bradshaw Apartment.” I just love the thought of having a feminine space filled with shoes & girly accessories!! Anyone who knows me I am sure can picture the all white apartment with accents of pink everywhere ♥ I know I can 😉
 
Now living in the city on your own is EXPENSIVE, so I would like to come up with some budget friendly ideas for decorating the apartment. Because let’s be honest, at the end of the day we still want to be able to shop in our spare time!

1. IKEA is a great starting point to buy the staple pieces

  1. Gray SOLSTA Sofa Bed $169
  2. White EXPEDIT Bookcase $179
  3. JONSBO EGBY Side table lamp $24
  4. LACK side table $12

2. Freshening up old furniture with a little paint job,  can even use existing pieces to save $$

My dear friend loves the mix of modern and vintage so here are some pictures for inspiration I have come up with…

I absolutely love this desk!
