Accessories, Art and Alterations

After the thrilling process of assembling furniture and unpacking, my apartment finally started to look livable.

The next (and my favorite step) was to accessorize, hang art and my photography on the walls, and make a few alterations to the furniture arrangement.

DIY- my old 2012 Italy calendar. I cut out 9 of my favorite images and arranged in this frame. Really happy with how it turned out, especially since I’m not a crafty type.

Top photo- rat pack. I’m an old soul when it comes to music. Purchased the photo online and framed it myself. Bottom two typography prints: from Etsy and also showing off my love of old music.
