apt tour.. a work in progress!!

Since moving into my apartment a hand full of weeks ago,  I've been back and forth on the idea of whether or not I should share with you all my apartment as it is, or wait until I have the final touches in place and then share the "big revel." Not sure why I decide to keep my interior such a secret, considering the fact that I'm the worst when it comes to keeping a secret. Whoops. I'd have to admit, it's something I need to work on!

In classic Jillian fashion of spoiling surprises, I unintentionally *teased* you all on Friday when I posted the little glimpse of my coffee table display. Whether you noticed it or not, I obviously felt as if it's time to share my apartment with you all, even without all the finishing touches! After all, isn't their that saying that a place starts to feel more like "home" once you starting finding pieces along the way, or am I just making that up?

Living Room: Colorful. Chic. Costal. These three adjectives helped me build the framework of what I envisioned when it came to styling my first place! Even though this is still parallel to having a college dorm, I still wanted to make the small space my own. After all, If i'm gonna be living somewhere I would want it to make me feel happy!

P.S: MAKE IKEA YOUR BEST FRIEND! I found the best pieces (my coffee table, end tables, rattan chair, fuzz throw, t.v stand, couch, legit most of my stuff) at ikea for such great prices! Like I said, if you just moved into a dorm/apt. in college, this isn't your "forever home" or "hot shot" apt. just yet. Take advantage of places like Ikea and target for simple pieces that are functional and half the price of some home furnishing stores!!

Bar Cart: How on brand is the whole set up for me?! Can't wait to dress it up for the holidays!

Kitchen: Angled this photo juuust right so I can crop up the giant blank space above my kitchen table, lol! Slowly and surely things will come together. In the mean time of finding the right print to frame above my table, thought i'd add some color to my kitchen with a jar of citrus. A very cheep and easy decor tip!

Bedroom: The star of the show is my bright, hot pink, obnoxiously adorable rattan headboard that I snagged at a none other than a local THRIFT STORE! Yes, you heard me right! Odd Ball's thrift store in Fort Lauderdale to be exact. If your in the area, I highly recommend checking it out, it's worth the visit! It's kind of a funny story of how I found this magnificent piece, actually.  It was the classic "i'm going to the store to get one thing and leave with something completely far fetched from what I came for! In my case, I went in looking for a coffee table, and walked away with a headboard!

Not sure if you all are aware of it, but bedding furniture is hella expensive. So to cut cost, I packed up what I had at home and "u-hauled" it up to my place! Highly recommend doing if you have the means to do so! 

Hope you all enjoyed this little tour of my place! More updates to come along the road!
