Working in the hospitality industry has its perks. In Chicago's blustery winter months hotels and restaurants come to a standstill, creating a month-long snow day for all of us worker bees. While many of my hotel friends seek temporary employment in warmer places, I have committed myself to a stay-cation this year. To stave off impending boredom (I cannot sit around for 30 days) I've put together a list of projects for my little home.
Every tiny apartment needs a focal wall. My apartment has a ton of doorway spaces, which are great for creating a larger feel for my space, but terrible for defining spaces (living/sleeping/eating). I'm committed to starting with a focal wall and then building my "rooms" around it. Hopefully that will alleviate some of my cluttered clusters
I am willing to admit that I've been addicted to the same boring brown decor for years now, however with some very inspired help I am the proud owner of a kick-ass leather sofa that is begging for some complimentary decor.

I haven't figured out where I'm supposed to put my bed. I saw this sweet post on Apartment Therapy about building your bed into a closet space...it's really cute but I need to find a way to frame out more walls around it...Expedit anyone?

While the new school of thinking is all about open floor plans with all locations visible, I've tried it for a few months and I'm not in love with it.
Off to find my camera...
