INSPIRING ME FOR MONDAY.


Hope ya'll had a good weekend and your Monday has been fabulous!   What's inspiring me this week? Well, in my ideal world, I like to imagine an apartment that is perfectly organized and uncluttered, like the pictures shown below.

I'm sure many of ya'll have heard apartments in NYC are tiny, and really to be honest, tiny doesn't quite cut it to accurately draw a picture of just how small some of these apartments really are.  Living in a smaller space (not to mention foolishly moving everything from my much larger apartment in Austin to NYC) has forced me to condense all of my "things", clean out the clutter, and get rid of basically all of the "I just can't live without" them items (because it has become crystal clear that I can in fact live without those things), and really stick to just the essentials.  I am loving the color coordinated bookshelf in the image above and hope to take this idea and do it in my own personal space.  Do ya'll have color coordinated bookshelves?  I had never really thought to do that before now, but think it definitely looks less chaotic and more organized.  I would also love to splurge on a bar cart and have my eye on the Hayworth by Society Social available for pre-order now. If you haven't already, you should definitely take a look at the other amazing bar carts by Society Social, they are timeless, incredibly chic, and I'm in awe of the detail in all of Society Social's bar cart designs.

OFFICE INSPIRATION

 I am in the slow process of creating a home office area in my apartment here in New York, and it's been a bit more challenging than I had expected.  It requires creative ideas to figure out how to make a desk work in a small space, but there are so many images I've found for inspiration I wanted to share them with ya'll.  A few of the photos below are ones that I've come across and love!
After figuring out what you want your office space to look like, below are a few of my favorite office essentials.  What are you must have accessories for your office?  Any tips for keeping the space organized? Would love to hear your suggestions!
