Considering we don’t spend a lot of time at our rented place — we stay mostly at my mom’s cos that’s where our daughter lives… it’s complicated — I’m really into nesting and looking for ways to decorate the place. Maybe it’s my subconscious hoping we’d actually get to spend more time there if it looks ~prettier than it does now. Who am I kidding? But let me indulge in this.
Our rented space has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, kitchen and dining area. Among all of these spaces, I’d have to say my favorite is the living area just because it’s the one we actually took a bit more time to ~prettify. We recently bought a chair and a teal vase from a surplus shop, and I think they look really well in the space. We also looked at a couple of paintings last night after having dinner, and my husband and I agreed that we’ll invest in paintings and other art pieces in the near future.
Now I don’t claim to be an expert. I’ve always been a fan of interior design, albeit lacking the skill to translate my mental mood boards and visions into real-life creations, but just like any other millennial, YouTube is my best friend when it comes to this. I love watching room transformations and getting tips here and there. I’m not sure where we’d live in a couple of months from now, but I don’t think my nesting feeling would subside till then.
If you’re feeling like nesting, too, here are some of my favorite videos.
