A LOOK INSIDE MY NEW APARTMENT BY VICTORIA LAUREN

We have been absolutely obsessed with Victoria Lauren's stunning new apartment, and we are SO happy that our Olive & Iris products get to be a part of it. I must tell you that Victoria definitely has a talent of making almost anything look pretty.

AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MONTH, I MOVED INTO MY VERY FIRST APARTMENT. ALTHOUGH IT'S JUST A TINY STUDIO, MY GOAL WAS TO MAKE IT FEEL AS PERSONAL AND HOMEY AS POSSIBLE. 

I was beyond excited to start decorating a space that is entirely my own, and during the months leading up to the big move-in day, I was re-pinning apartment inspo like crazy on Pinterest .

I'm in love with warm wood tones and rattan decor, which will definitely be obvious throughout the following photos. It was important for me to create an interior that didn't feel too cluttered or busy, considering I didn't have much space to work with. I'm so happy with the final result and am so satisfied with how it all turned out (don't think I'll stop re-arranging and adding decor, though).

I made these paintings myself, I went for something abstract and simple, partly because that fits with the style of my place, but mostly because anything abstract is the most I can do with my painting abilities.

I'm so in love with this mirror, it's super easy to adjust because of the black rubber outlining the mirror, so I never have to worry about it slipping ! I like to lay out whatever outfit I am wearing the next day on the easel in the back (I mean sometimes... I still spend too many mornings figuring out what to wear)
