Apartment Bliss

With college move-in season upon us I can't help but drool at all of the beautiful rooms and decor I see all over the blogosphere and of course, Pinterest.  I absolutely love decorating. Every single time one of my closest friends from home, Heidi, and I would get together when we were younger we would rearrange my bedroom. We would lock ourselves in my room for hours moving and deciding what looked best where until we got it exactly right and now, ten years later, I still love it! 

Current inspiration- simple elegance

It amazes me how much my tastes can change from year to year. My family has done it's share of moving (same area- different homes) in my life and every move produced a different decor scheme. One bedroom I was obsessed with bright pink and green, the next I was all about purple, and the next I couldn't get enough plain white with pops of blue. My freshman year of college I bought an lilac and teal Urban Outfitters duvet cover (see photo below) that I still love, but after two consistent years of use I am ready for a change!

When I was in my pink and green phase years ago I bought this Lilly Pulitzer bedding (see photo below). I haven't used it in years but I decided this year I am going to bring it back! It's great because the flip side is plain pink so if I get tired of the pattern I can just turn it over and have a whole new feel! Plus it's Lilly and just makes me happy to look at! 

Not my actual room but I have the same bedding!

With the comforter being pretty busy I plan to keep the rest of my decor simplfied by using white accessories and pretty vases. I can't wait to see how it all comes together after I move in on Friday! I will definitely be posting pictures so be on the lookout! Do y'all love decorating just as much as I do? What do you think about my bedding?

Let me know what you think!
