Welcome to My Home

I can say confidently that this post is the most anticipated on my blog ever. I moved to a new place more than half a year ago, and was teasing you guys on socials promising to show you my decor ever since. I didn't realize that furnishing and decorating my place entirely from scratch will take that long - perhaps I am too indecisive, or just a careful tastemaker. In any case, it was a big project for me, and I enjoyed the experience (even if it was stressful at times). While decorating is a constant work in progress, I couldn't be more excited to finally show you the first version that I am truly happy with. I decided to go for a mid-century all white decor with a few boho details here and there. I feel like this decor represents my personality the most at the moment, and every piece that is here is chosen with love and attention. The place is fairly small, and I tried to keep it cozy yet minimalistic. I actually adopted elements of minimalistic lifestyle in all aspects of my life, and it has helped me so much mentally.
Let's start the tour with the living room, where I spend most of my time - on my cozy white couch from Crate & Barrel, in particular. All the rest of the furniture comes from Rove Concepts - literally the best furniture I have ever seen. My coffee table, moroccan pouf and TV stand are all from their Kure collection, I am completely in love with its solid quality and amazing design. I can definitely say, that Rove Concepts is for perfectionists! More importantly, I am almost scared to browse their site, because I always feel like I need to buy everything (even if I have no space for it). Trust me, when you discover their quality, you'll get addicted as well.
Of course I couldn't get a place without a fireplace - it makes such a difference in creating a cozy environment. I use it every single day since I moved in. As for the art, all of it is from Minted - my favorite go-to place for amazing art pieces. The "Staredown" photo, that you see framed to fit my interior perfectly thanks to my local Universal Art Gallery (I second LA Magazine, they are definitely the best framers in LA!), is by far my favorite art piece that I ever owned. This photo has so much energy - power, strength, stillness and stability. Everything that I strive for. The rest of my art pieces are more of a romantic nature - to showcase the feminine side of my personality. 
The dining room and the bedroom are the areas, where I decided to mix in other decor elements, such as boho motives and quirky vibes. I barely ever sit at my dining table (I spend most of my time sitting at the bar area that is not pictured in this post), hence there was no need for a big dining table. It almost looks miniature, but definitely sits up to 4 people comfortably. The planter above it is from We Are M.F.E.O., I have been obsessed with it the moment I discovered it on Instagram. And the straw hats on the wall are a final touch that added those boho and beachy vibes to the whole decor. 
My bedroom was a challenge. With 2 huge closets on both sides of the room, I wanted to keep it as minimal as possible. My bed is from Rove Concepts (obviously!) - definitely the best bed I have ever had. I am in love with their built-in solid panel foundation, makes it so sturdy and comfortable. Not to mention that the design of it is perfect. Having romantic art, minimalistic mid-century bed, I needed to add some quirky elements to showcase that private side of my personality, so I added these fun all-white tiny nightstands that I got on Amazon. Bedding is exclusively from Brooklinen, I have been their fan for over a year now. Candles around the house are from them as well. 
I hope you enjoy this little tour of my cozy place. Can't wait to hear your thoughts.
