around the house

Things around the house decor wise have been kinda stagnant. Not by any choice of mine. You know the whole landlord thing and them deciding to be pains.in.my.butts. I just feel kinda stuck with the mustardy walls. Yes Mustard. I don't want to do anything til it's done.

Evidence. {in a horrible iPhone pic, but you get the jist}

Now do you feel my pain?! It's everywhere. And the landlord thinks I am crazy because this is neutral. Neutral to who, a pet monkey? I really hope they just let me paint already. It will really just make the place feel brighter and 30257.98% better. I am hesitant to get a new rug or coffee table til then. But I am loving these images as inspiration. The mix of traditional, modern, that is what I want. Right now the more traditional couch and modern TV stand are making the Hubs second guess what I talked him into. And I know it will be great. But....uggh...seriously, can we get the painting over already?!

Simple and clean in the bathroom. 
 Lucite coffee table....tis what I really want!

  1. Not being able to paint would drive me crazy! The last place we rented the landlord only said "just make it look better". Umm, ok - easy enough! I hope your landlord gives in soon :)

    1. It is giving me anger issues. For reals!!!! Who knows, they are afraid 'We will ruin their wood work' and they want to do it now. Who knows.

  3. An interior decorator friend of mine suggested that we paint our apartment grey, I think it would look amazing but I'm too nervous because it might darken the space too much. But I can't deny, everytime I see grey walls they do look super chic.

  4. I so feel your pain... my current apartment, while lovely and new, has the worst shade of like... olive green?... on the walls. In some light it looks tan, others green, and then sometimes a gross mix of the two. It matches nothing, so almost everything I've added to the apt is black & white. That said, we're moving this month to a place with actual neutral off white/cream walls (though I still dream of grays, gray-blues & stark whites!) Fingers crossed you get to paint soon!! Love your inspiration images! The lucite is dreamy!

  7. I feel your pain. My walls are this yellowish/beigey tone that truly works with nothing. I would paint them if I didn't hate doing it or the fact that I'm looking to move so don't feel it's worth the effort at this point.
    I hope you landlord gets the stick out of you know where and let you paint those walls a fabulous gray color.

  8. That is not neutral and the landlord can suck it!! Although I think I saw on twitter that he is letting you paint so wahoo!!! And I'm obsessed with that last pic...I pinned that right from you after I saw it the other day! xoxo
