the digs

after a two-week hiatus, i am back and ready to share my digs with you! I recently moved into a duplex (ish) by myself after living with 11 different girls in 5 years. while having roommates was awesome and i got to live with some of my best friends, i was REAL ready to live by myself. to have my own space, to decorate however i wanted, and to have a place that really felt like me. enter apartment number three; filled with natural light, short on space and easy on the eyes. a new build with character is hard to find and i feel like they kinda nailed it. get ready for picture overload + enjoy!

(and note: yes, i do really enjoy books + america. if only you could see my shoe collection…)

WHEW. if you survived– congratulations. For being such a small place, i managed to get ample pictures, huh? Here’s some Q + A for you lovelies.

what first drew you to the place?

honestly, natural light was on my list of “musts”. with a small budget and limited options in the rolling metropolis of bryan + college station, texas, searching for a one-bedroom place with the things i wanted was really hard. it was discouraging because i wanted a space to relax and that i felt happy every day waking up in. this place is that for me. ideally, i wanted an older place that had lots of character but this was a good balance. i feel really lucky.

what is at the top of your home to-do list?

i just recently got my green chair (thrifting. ethan allen, wutup) so finally actually feel like i can have friends over to hang. but i really want/need a rug + possibly coffee table and FOR THE LOVE OF PETE- kitchen chairs. i don’t have space for an actual table but there is bar space where i can put two chairs. i’ve been searching for the perfect ones to do a lil paint project on. eating on sofa chairs is getting old fast. most of the other areas i’m content with for now but those three things are a work in progress!

what’s your style?

I used to stress myself out about matching everything and having a certain “style” but mixing and matching is my favorite and makes me feel most at home. I hated the feeling of having a color scheme i felt limited in so i kind of threw out the formalities and decided to just do what i like. i highly recommend it.

ALSO THIS QUOTE IS TRUE: “Have nothing in your home that you don’t know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” William Morris

(aka tell that hoard BYE. you don’t need every tshirt you own from 1999, promise.)

where do you shop most for home decor?

jenna is my name and thrifting is my game. partly cause i’m cheap, partly cause i love the hunt, partly cause i don’t have tons of dough to be spending on brand new stuff anyways, but it has served me well so far. i’d say about 90% of my decor and furniture is thrifted and its fun having stuff that you can’t just find anywhere else. sometimes this makes things more frustrating when trying to find certain things (ie: rugs, kitchen chairs, coffee table, ANYTHING PARTICULAR REALLY), but i prefer it.

alright your turn, what are you most looking forward to doing or updating in your home?
