as i have gotten older, i have tried to be more deliberate about my purchases.  therefore, when it came to decorating my apartment, i spent a lot of time thinking and creating moodboards.  while planning before shopping is very important, i have realized that you also need to have a bit of room for an impulse purchase that simply moves you.

case in point: when i was digging through the ABC carpet basement rug sale, i came across this amazing madeline weinrib rug.  it is so unlike anything i was looking for, but makes such a statement (and really ties my apartment together).  i am so in love.

more apartment pictures to come!  it is so rewarding to see everything coming together.
