I feel like since I applied for an apartment, I have been on Pinterest and Houzz so much looking at ideas on how to decorate my first very own space!! (So excited!) Unfortunately for me, I have Crate and Barrel taste and an Ikea budget. D: However, I totally see that as an opportunity. I think the best spaces are built up over time and it will be fun to see my apartment develop.
Anyways, check out some spaces I've been loving that I'm using as inspiration for my little loft! :)
I love the eclectic feel of this space and how they utilized every square foot in this studio. My apartment will be a bit bigger than this, but not much. I love the dresser turned console table, and I have an old dresser that I want to do this too. The square bookshelves as a room divider is a great way to add color and define space and the ghost chair is perfect (and doesn't take up space visually).
I love the contrast piping and the lucite coffee table. It's so chic. I'm looking at an Ikea sofa-bed but I'd love to have it reupholstered or a navy/white slipcover made to customize it a little bit. I love the colors here and how they pop (and those shell lamps are pretty dang adorable too!).
This is definitely the color palette I'm looking at (with more navy and less pink). I love the pink accents, it's so fun and adds so much depth to an otherwise white room.

I love this bedding, mine is similar but has a tan border and is linen, I'm planning on adding navy accents to my new bedroom, and maybe getting my pillows monogrammed in navy. Mine won't be this bright white, and will have more color, but I love the clean look and mixed patterns of this!
If I'm allowed to wallpaper in my new apartment, I'm totally doing this on one of my walls! I love the navy blue stripes, they look so nautical and preppy! (In a bathroom, it would be totally cute!)
Where do you get inspiration from for your spaces?
