Black + White

I think I could stand to have an entire home decked out in black & white. For example, this front entry - talk about a first impression. GORGEOUS.

This bedroom is also pretty much awesome.
Of course, the fabulous loft apartment doesn't hurt!
My bedroom = not so lovely.

I'm always on the lookout for black & white decor. Fun, little things to dress up my place. Since I'm still renting I cannot go all out, but sometimes the accessories are the best part! Today I found the cutest acrylic tray - & it was super cheap, too! It's perfectly simple: clear & white. I had to have it. Trays are an especially attractive item to me.

Hi tray!
I can't quite decide where it is going to live yet, but I have a feeling it will be pretty versatile.

Looks good with colour, too.
Vintage Cocktails: fave book o' the moment - a Christmas giftie from my bro & his wife. She's an interior designer - duh, it's obviously what we're good at!

I never did a "tour" of my new place. I honestly think it's kinda dumpy. "It is only temporary," I keep telling myself. Well, stay tuned & I'll be posting some more of my favorite black + white items around my place. Maybe that will finally get me excited about making my apartment a little bit more of a home.

We buy accessories too. I really want all sorts of new furniture, but it's kind of pointless in a tiny place. "It's only temporary" is my mantra too!

I love black and white! I've been decorating my room for over a year now, and everything I'm drawn to for the room is and white, or grey. I used to question this, but obviously I am not alone.

That tray is awesome. I'm sort of obsessed with acrylic right now.
I loved that house tour over at AT too and you should totally do a mini tour through your space. It lets people see how nice you can make something even if the actual building isn't amazing.

love the tray!
I am all for black and white interiors, with some gray. (that is the palette in my home) I add bits of colour here and there.

Hope you are doing well.

I rent a crummy apartment with two guys who couldn't care less what our place looks like. One has pics of his trip to Australia framed & hung all around the apartment, and I HATE them.

So... I have no decorations. No accessories. No home joy. And also, no windows in my bedroom.

Thanks for letting me live vicariously through you!
