Within the next few months, I am taking a huge leap and moving out of my childhood home for the very first time. While there are so many decisions and fears associated with this new chapter in my life, I prefer to focus on the fun things -- such as decor!
...and Pinterest has been a huge help!

It is still being decided whether I will live on my own or be sharing an apartment with my best friend. Either way, there will be space that I can finally call my own and if anyone knows me, they will know that every piece of decor will revolve around my favourite colours (or shades, or tints, whatever!) -- black and white.

When I found the rug (above) at IKEA, I was sold. I love how clean and classic black and white look when paired together. Of course, I'm going to add in other colours, but these two will be my base. That way, when the other colours begin to be too much, or they're just not my favourite anymore, I can switch out throw pillows and picture frames for new ones at little cost.

As a recent graduate, I'm not going to be making a six figure salary right off the bat. Due to this, I foresee a lot of DIY projects in my future. I am obsessed with the nightstand (above) and with some wood and white paint, I know I could make a great knock off. Of course, any successful projects will be posted on here for you all to see!

It's going to be an interesting few months as I figure out what works (this rolling rack -- love!) and what doesn't in my new space. Between black and white, DIY and adorable thrifted knick knacks, I know I will be able to create a home I am proud of.
In preparation for this huge adventure, I wanted to give you all a heads up. I hope you are excited to follow me on this journey and stay tuned for many more updates on the details!
Also, if you have any recommendations for living in a small space or decorating your first home...please let me know! I'd love some ideas.
