P O P of color

Thank you to Wayfair for sending me a gift card so I could add some much needed color to my creative space! All opinions are my own.

One of the most fun parts of making our big move to Oregon last year was being able to decorate our apartment to make it feel like home. When we lived in our first apartment in Provo, I had NO idea what I was doing, so our place felt a little mismatched. Then we lived with my in laws for a little bit, and we didn't bother with decor there. Moving to Oregon was a fresh start, so I decided to have fun with it!

We are lucky enough to have a second bedroom where we both have desks. It's a place for Justin to study and organize his thoughts for law school. For me, it's a creative space where I sew, refashion, and dream up my next blog post! I loved how my little space turned out (see before photos HERE), but I felt like something was missing. To be honest, most of our apartment decor is very neutral colored. There are a few blue accents here and there, but there isn't much color. I decided to add a pop of color to my corner with this amazing light gray/gold rug from Wayfair.

I was attracted to this rug the instant I saw it!! I love the print, the colors, and it is so soft on my toesies. I wanted to place it horizontally on the wall, but we actually have a giant mirror (that I moved for the photos) that goes right next to my desk and the rug doesn't fit that way... but, I still love the way it looks :) 

Changing up your space doesn't mean having to get all new furniture. By simply adding the rug, it added more personality, charm, and obviously color to my creative little corner.

Thank you so much for reading today! Have a wonderful Thursday! xO

Super cute rug, fits perfectly! The space still looks pretty plain to me- especially with that being where you go to get inspired. I'd suggest adding a fun collage of pictures/decor on the wall, or maybe a more interesting lamp would help! :)

I'm actually looking into other lamps right now!! But no collages for me-- the look is too cluttered, I hate clutter haha.
