Stylish Apartment Living

If you live in an apartment or a small space, you are going to LOVE this series.  Even if you have a huge home, you’ll still love this series. You’ll fall in love with Katie’s talent and ability to make small apartment living as stylish, comfortable and inviting as living in a 3500 sq.ft Cape Cod home. 

Don’t let her young age fool you. This girl is an old soul with a real sense of who she is, where she’s going and how she wants to decorate! That last part is the most important, right?

I’ve been reading Katie’s blog, Creole Wisdom for a long time! I actually featured her a while ago where I wrote the following.

 “I’ve enjoyed her blog for a couple of years.  I like her candid writing about growing up, going to college, having boyfriends…….I find myself wishing I could be that girl again with as much poise and grace as she has at such vulnerable age for all of us.  The age where we are truly becoming adults.  Katie is a smart girl.  She’s got the confidence that we hope all young girls grow up with.” 

I still feel the same way about her. Although we’ve never met in real life, I just adore her.

I absolutely LOVE her dining room! She made the wall art……..of course she did ………. and we all know how much I love to decorate with numbers. Stylish Apartment Living - Katie's Place |

You’ll find many feminine touches throughout her apartment without being too girly.

Mixed with that black signage …turned wall art……LOVE!

Katie is amazing at organizing creative nooks……at every turn, something deliberate and creative catches your eye. It doesn’t have to be BIG or BOLD, sometimes just the smallest touch is perfect!

I learned long ago to cluster and gather collected items. She’s obviously putting that “rule” to work in the most beautiful way.

    I’m so happy about your new apartment series! We moved from our big New England home into an apartment last year when we relocated south, wanting to explore the area before buying a new house. I’m always scouring blogs for cute apartment decorating ideas! Can’t wait to see more.

    How did you make the wonderful number art? What color are your chairs? You did a fabulous job

    I loved the photos of Katie’s real apt. – just as beautiful as spreads in magazines that cost a fortune to do! Katie has a great sense of style!
    I have never posted on a blog before – someone else must think Katie’s great too!@

    These are such cute tips! What fun ways to bring color into a room – this would work super well in apartment where you aren’t allowed to paint the walls. Love the table especially!
