There is not much I can say about this's simply disasterous. I mean, you cannot even see the floor. I wonder what the point of a closet and dressers are when they are clearly not even being used. Where does one even sleep when the mess gets to this point?!I would hope a friends house with a spare bedroom, unless they have a money tree and can stay at the Holiday Inn. This is a great example of how a bedroom can turn into  a landfill when they go ignored for a lenghtly periods of time. I generally would not dedicate an entire post to before and after pics, but this space clearly needed an intervention. I will say, this space took longer than I thought to organize, but when I was done, the outcome was amazingness!  It just took some good organization skills, creativity, patience and hard work. xoxo. Thanks for the awesome pics Lisa Delgadillo!!

I love to cozy up by a fireplace and relax.  Unfortunately, apartments are not that fireplace friendly. Here are some great alternatives to achieving the same look and feel as a woodburning fireplace, without needing a fire extinguisher nearby. If you're still hesitant to even light candles, there are also some flame free fireplaces that will make you warm and cozy.

Shabby Chic Modern Style

I used to think Shabby Chic was just shabby.  Recently, I've started to appreciate the style and actually think it is lovely, sophisticated and girly. I wouldn't go as far as decorating my entire apartment in shabby chic (a tad overkill for a small space) but, I would definitely incorporate a few pieces mixed with modern elements. Here are some greats pic of combining shabby chic w/ other styles to create an amazing space.

Mid-Century Modern

Mid-century modern decorating can be an acquired taste. However, I love this look for apartments and small spaces because of the clean lines and minimalistic details. With this type of design style, you are less likely to clutter up your space so you can enjoy the simplicity of the furniture.
