Half Life

My apartment is in that strange awkward stage of being half-unpacked and half-livable. All the furniture is there, but many necessities are still in boxes. For the most part, I would rather think of new and creative ways to use already unpacked objects than unpack the things I actually need. This leads to strange behavior such as using a hat as a pot-holder or re-washing and using the same spatula over and over again. But, it's starting to come together! Seeing my old table in the new space is still a little weird - like two parallel universes crashed into one another.

Then there's the bathroom project - my bathroom has these pale greenish walls and i was originally planning on doing something really neutral with grey and white towels/shower curtain...but then I was unpacking and saw this little gem:

The red/turquoise/taupe color scheme went surprisingly well well the pale grayish green paint, so I decided to try it out as a color scheme. It still needs a LOT of work but I think I like where this is going.

I definitely need a couple more pieces that have more color and bring the whole thing together... but red and turquoise is a surprisingly difficult color combo to find. If I had the $$ I would hire an interior designer...but I do not, so we're relying on my mediocre decorating skills. Hooray!

Both of the bedrooms are basically storage spaces at this point, so we'll get around to them later...but I'm pretty excited about how they're turning out, especially the second bedroom/yoga room.

On another is my LAST CLASS of grad school! And yoga with Ali tonight... so it should be a good day :)


  1. Yuh-oh...I have no turqoise/reddish belongings...can I still use the bathroom?

  2. I love red and turquoise together :D it's one of my favorite color pairings actually. Good luck with the unpacking and making this new place a home. It will come together :)

    Morever, congrats on your last day of grad school!! So exciting!


  3. Thanks dear! I love red and turquoise too, I hope this whole bathroom decor thing works out :)
