Our Studio Apartment Tour featured in Rue Magazine!

*all images by the talented and sweet Monica Wang Photography

Today is the day I've been waiting for! For the past 6 months, I've been dying to show you our studio apartment and today it is being featured in Rue Magazine's June issue! I'm so, so excited to share my roommate and I's little space with you! We had a ball putting it together, so I hope you can find some inspiration in our TINY little studio. It's been so fun to decorate it with my roommate, Alexa, also a talented interior design student.

You don't need a big, fancy apartment, and you certainly don't need to spend a whole ton of money to decorate your place. Luckily for us, Alexa's dad is a home builder and he stages his homes after they are done, so most of our furniture is from his storage unit of left over furniture. We were really blessed with that! Head over to see the full tour and read a few of my tips on how to create a space you love on a budget.

I'm also really excited to announce that I will be Rue Magazine's summer intern!!! {Is that too many exclamation points? I think not!} I will be moving back to the Bay Area as soon as I graduate college to work for the magazine. I'm so beyond grateful for this opportunity. 

My heart is overflowing today! 

A few sources from items in the apartment:
Greek Key Rug- Lulu & Georgia
Blue bedding- April Cornel
Pink bedding- Pottery Barn
Bed pillows- West Elm & Pottery Barn
Chevron Dresser- DIY by Michaela
LOVE print- SS Print Shop
Crosses- collected over time by both of us
Furniture- Alexa's family

Head over to Rue now to read the new issue! It's FULL of gorgeousness and our feature starts on page 90.  Enjoy!
Happy Tuesday

  31. I love this! I'm moving in two months and searching for an apartment now. With my budget, I'm only going to be able to afford a studio so I love finding inspiration in small spaces I'm definitely bookmarking this so I can reference your linked up guide when I'm decorating. Such a cute place by the way :)
