10 Swoon Worthy Kitchens

I may not best the best cook, or even cook at all really, but boy can I appreciate a beautiful kitchen. While I think a majority of these swoon worthy spaces are the results of a makeover done by a home owner, I think there are a few similar themes throughout that can also be renter friendly like a great light fixture, interesting hardware, and fresh flowers or fun plants.

One day I would love to have a space like any of the following because of course it will instantly make me a world-renowned chef. In the meantime, however, I’ll be here day dreaming about subway tile and gold faucets.

Bedroom + Office Makeover: The Reveal

A home tour of @thecraftedlife's Philly apartment (bedroom + office)It’s time for the reveal y’all! I am so excited to have this space done because I think one of the hardest aspects about moving is not feeling settled. While I still have my living room and kitchen to go, this makeover has certainly pushed me in the right direction of making Philly my new home (you can read a bit about that in yesterday’s before post).

I will do my best to link to sources, but if there’s something you see and would like to know where it’s from, just leave me a comment! Now, on to the photos!

A home tour of @thecraftedlife's Philly apartment (bedroom + office)For the space, I tried to make it a mix of DIY (like that polka dot pillow) and pieces I really love. It’s the first time in a long time that I’ve lived alone, which meant I didn’t have to check in with anyone if they liked what I did. Thus, pink side tables.

One of my favorites pieces in the room is the oversized palm tree print (54″x 40″) from Minted. I was nervous that such a large scale print would overpower the room, but it really just adds the perfect amount of color. I think if you’re going oversize that it’s important to keep the art simple and keep it to scale (ie don’t make it bigger than the bed).

Bedroom + Office Makeover: The Before

Bedroom + Office Makeover: The BeforeAlright friends, it’s the week of the big reveal! I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been working on the last two months. Let’s start at the beginning, the before.

You might remember that in December I moved from Portland to Philly. Because I drove across the country in a smaller U-Haul, I ended up leaving a lot of things behind. And even though I ended up sleeping on an air mattress for two months (ps this one is amazing if you’re looking), it also gave me the opportunity to start fresh and really narrow in on what I wanted.

Bedroom + Office Makeover: The BeforeIf we’re being completely honest here, I’ve never considered myself that great at decorating. I know what it is I like when I see it, but it’s always been hard for me to bring it all together on my own. So since my goal for the year was to change that, I’ve been doing a lot of research. Reading books and magazine and really studying what it is that I like about styled home photos that I come across. I recommend grabbing a copy of Sage Living and/or Styled if you’re looking for some new inspiration.

The apartment I moved into was essentially a blank slate. When it came to shopping for new pieces I asked myself if I absolutely loved what I was considering. If it was a no, then back it went. After doing this several times, I finally came up with some pieces that I really love, as well as a mix of DIY projects that I think are some of my favorite to date.

Bedroom + Office Makeover: The BeforeSo that’s a preview of what the space looked like before!  Be sure to come back tomorrow to see the full reveal!
