High Rise Apartment

This weekend I was flown to Washington DC to decorate a high rise apartment in Arlington. It came out beautiful, we had a great time in the city, we worked our butts off to get it done in 3 days, and I was actually kinda sad to leave.

Sorry about the grainy quality of the pictures, we finished the room at 10pm that night and I had an early morning flight and had to leave before the natural light could shine through. The before was your typical apartment with white walls, vertical blinds, and generic quality of everything.

Slip cover chair and ottoman at West Elm

The accent wall color is Deep Space by Benjamin Moore, curtains from Pier One.

Good rule of thumb in picking out throw pillows is to pick a solid, print, and a texture. The tan sofa came with a solid brown pillow and we found the printed pillows at Home Goods and a cream colored fuzzy pillow for that texture we needed.

Most of the decor and accent pieces that fill the room are from Home Goods, I am all about design on a budget. It makes things special and exciting to me when you get a good deal on the purchase. It's no fun to pay full price.

Eh, "deep space" didn't come out as nice in my apartment. Looks more navy than charcoal.
