Apartment Haul 2017 + Updated Studio Tour

So good news! My studio apartment is almost done (85%). I can’t wait to share the complete video tour with you guys when I’m finished.  In the meantime, enjoy this collective apartment haul video of home décor and furniture pieces that I bought. I am going for a bright contemporary living space so I purchased a lot of light, neutral, and modern items. Everything was pretty affordable so I linked the exact/similar items below. Keep in mind that the prices that I paid for are different from the websites because I hunted the clearance aisles or waited for a special promotion. But as always I hope you guys get some creative ideas and found this post helpful! ~b

Empty Studio Apartment Tour

Hi all! Here’s an unfurnished video tour of my current studio apartment. I moved from Ohio to a metropolitan city in the South. I have been living here for a few months now and I absolutely love it here! It’s definitely a different atmosphere from all the other places that I’ve lived before. The energy of the city is contagious! I can’t tell you guys enough how lucky I am to snag this 324 sq. ft. studio with a monthly rent of $655. Most apartments in uptown are around a grand (yikes!). On top of the affordable price, my unit came with everything I could possibly need! There’s ample of built-in storage, a desk work-space, washer/dryer, dresser, etc. In addition, the amenities here are also noteworthy. There are two pools and fitness centers, café/computer room, and outside lounging areas. This is by far my favorite apartment I have ever lived in. I really couldn’t have been happier with my decision to call this place my home. ~b
