Living Room Tour

I’ve been living in my “new” apartment for around three months now. I actually got settled in here fairly quickly but like I’ve mentioned before there are always little odds and ends I’m looking for or things I’m considering changing. That leads to me putting off posting room tours but I’m feeling like this room is in a pretty good place right now. Really ever since I bought the rug I’ve been dying to post pictures. In the words of The Dude, that rug really tied the room together. It’s absolutely what it was missing! It’s a pain in the butt to keep free of cat and dog hair but it just looks so darn good.

The bike rack is one of my other favorite things in the room. I was kind of stumped with what to put on that wall. The obvious choice was to put a tv there, I keep mine in my bedroom though. Then I realized I didn’t have anywhere to put my bike! I spent a while searching for an attractive and affordable bike rack type thing. It just wasn’t happening so I decided making one was the route to go. Jeff and I went to the hardware store with a tiny idea of what we were looking for but ended up coming home with the pieces for this. It actually ended up looking way more awesome than I had pictured. It’s great because it’s simple, it was cheap (under $20), gets my bike out of the way, and it looks awesome!

I don’t think I could have found an apartment more perfect for me right now. I’m sure someday I’ll outgrow it, or realize I have other needs in a space just like I did with my last place but for right now this is the best.  I love this place!
