~Envisioning My Dream Apartment~

A Trip Back in Time...

A couple weeks ago, an interesting question was posed that really got me thinking:

"If you could go back in time to your first apartment, with the style and taste for design you have now, what would it look like?" 

This question arose from a company named Modani (they specialize in modern furniture pieces). I really love their selection and wanted to mix their sense of modern, with my taste of eclectic and feminine.

Now - I don't know about your first apartment, but I was as broke as broke can be when I had mine. Hand-me-down furniture was the theme of my first space. Nonetheless, I loved the freedom of having it be mine. So to think of an apartment, where I could afford nice "things" and actually define my style, well this was a challenge that I was up to! When I think of apartment life, I think of entertaining because I did so much of that when I was younger. To me, entertaining means people, and people need seating. So I decided to create my vision board around a living room concept.

My Dream Look...

The room ended up taking on a very Moroccan feel, even though that wasn't what I necessarily had in mind when I started out. I wanted a room that was feminine yet bold, with patterns and colors that felt inviting.

As for the products used and their sources, here's the list:

  1. Wallpaper - Hygge & West, Carved Ogee in Gray
  2. Rug - Rugs USA, Tuscan Viga Chevron Denim Rug
  3. Sofa Table - Modani, Lubeck Coffee Table in Walnut
  4. Sofa - Modani, Onyxia Sofa Bed in White
  5. Chairs - IKEA, Storsele Rattan in Black
  6. Sofa Pillows - Target, Threshold Gold Chevron
  7. Chair Pillows - Target, Threshold Gold Embroidered 
* Pouf, table decor and lanterns not sourced

Modani makes their own modern, contemporary furniture pieces at affordable prices. They have many modern furniture stores around the United States in major metropolitan areas and four more coming soon, just in case you would rather see the furniture before purchasing. Happy shopping :)
