Let me introduce my pride and joy, my oasis, my…blush pink and grey apartment.
I carefully planned out her decor during the final few months in my parents’ house, and I’m so proud to share how everything turned out! Initially, I kept gravitating toward very minimalistic, mid-century interiors and inspo. I even started planning out my room and researching decor in that style. But as I kept moving forward I just knew in my gut that it wasn’t me. My interiors style, at its core, is glam, girly, and chic!
So I made the decision to start over and stick to my true style. That’s how I landed on the blush pink and grey color palette with mixed metallic accents!
BLUSH PINK AND GREY ACCENTS:
Nightstand: I saw this nightstand for sale on Facebook and knew that with a fresh coat of paint it would make the BEST piece. It had that industrial glam touch that I needed! The nightstand’s golden hardware also made it easy to bring in gold and silver accents with the decor on top with the jewelry dishes. Cute and functional! The vase (linking similar here!) is from the Albertson’s floral section. Can you believe that?!
And of course the PRINTS 🙂 I’m a self-proclaimed Francophile and when my mom recommended I do a print quad I knew that I wanted it to be Parisian-inspired.
Bed: I already had this monogrammed Matouk coverlet from my bed at my parent’s house, but I knew I wanted to add in a headboard. I love the studded accents on the headboard and the texture it brings to the room! For the longest time, I hunted around for the right duvet and none were the right fit. That’s why I went with this braided quilt (linking similar here) from West Elm! It’s simple and the pattern was the only thing that paired well with my coverlet.
When it came to the pillows, I wanted something very simple. I think the fringe pillow and velvet lumbar pillow add depth with their texture. The bed desperately needed a print and the antelope pillowcases were the perfect neutral option! I’m linking to all of the pillows below.
Bookshelf: I had my eyes on a similar bookshelf to the one in my room, but it was way too expensive. When I found this one on sale, I ordered it immediately. A lot of the decor on the shelf just came from items I’d gathered along the way decorating dorm rooms and apartments in college. One of my biggest recommendations to decorate an apartment on a budget is to make the most that you can out of what you already have! Or to base your apartment’s theme off a lot of the decor you might already have. I did add in the faux peonies, sunglasses holder, and the Veuve Clicquot candle. It’s one of my favorite additions to the shelf and it’s from Leo Candle Co. – I’m in LOVE with it!
Desk: Welcome to the Never Without Lipstick headquarters 😉 Blush pink and grey are definitely brand-approved colors for NWL so you better believe they made it onto my desk!
TV Console: This girl loves herself some TV. So having a TV at the foot of my bed was a MUST, and I have absolutely loved it! I call my TV console (now only available in black) my “color corner” because it’s the only area where you’ll see colors that veer from my blush pink and grey theme!
I hope you loved taking a virtual walk through my blush pink and grey apartment/masterpiece. If you have any questions on how to decorate on a budget or what pieces to invest in, please feel free to reach out. Target, Amazon, and yard sales were my saving graces.
