As a college student and recent graduate, I've been moving in and out of various apartments for over four years.  I just counted and I've lived nine different places since starting college in the fall of 2008.  That includes relocating for summer jobs and studying abroad, but still, it's a heck of a lot of packing.

When you move that much, it can be difficult to establish a home in the perfect design that you've always dreamed of.  Not to mention, it's also difficult to design a dream home on a college student's budget.  But someday when I do live in my dream home and someday when I have a more permanent address, I hope it looks a little something like this.

Clean lines, simple, open, and slightly eclectic.  Necessities include: an inspiration board, lamps all over the place, vintage elements (distressed wood) mixed with modern elements and lots of frames and mirrors.

  1. That kitchen is my dream! And I love the entryway too. SO pretty.

  2. All the pretty pinks and whites and woods are so gorgeous! I hope you get to play with these designs sooner rather than later :) Moving is definitely one of my least favorite things, and certainly makes establishing a home a lot more difficult.

  3. These photos are all so gorgeous! I love the framed photos in the stairwell. I want to do that! Great post!

  4. This is exactly what I want my future home to look like! I would kill for a clean, minimalist, but cozy home. Stupid dorm...

  5. yes we have all been there!


  6. Amazing interior! My inspiration board looks somewhat like that. I really like the kitchen and the dining table. I hope you get to create a home looking the way you want it to in the near future.

  7. I know exactly what you mean- it's been hard to amass quality items on a student budget or to really go for decorating a place when you know it's only temporary. Since I graduated, this new place I moved into is the first place I feel like I can settle down for a bit. Love your inspiration!
