If you remember from my last post, Mindy has beautiful grey walls and white picture frame molding all throughout her apartment. It's an elegant and sophisticated choice that I absolutely love and gives architecture to the space. On it's own, the molding and color might seem like a traditional choice but with a neutral background she can play with prints and colors to make her apartment feel youthful...
Geesh, I'm talking about her apartment like she designed it herself. lol. I almost wish she was a real person so I could drop by her apartment to hang out once in awhile...you know, because she's a cool person...not because of her stunning décor or anything...
//1. Mindy has a lot of graphic art throughout her apartment. With her gray and traditional walls, the splash of color from these graphic prints makes her apartment feel youthful and hip. (Coco & Hearts, Away we go, Inaluxe)
// 2. This lamp adds an architectural element to any room. And with a white lamp shade it looks modern and industrial.
// 3. I love how she repeated the color turquoise throughout her apartment in big splashes of color like this console and the chandelier in her dining area. I always love when consoles or buffets like this are used to house tv equipment instead of a made for your television TV stand. This is an easy area to add color to your home through a DIY project. Just grab some paint and an old craiglist find console and you'll have instant chic in your home.
// 4. Mindy has accents of orange all around her apartment. This coral/orange chevron pillow from etsy is both affordable and cute.
// 5. I loved the look of a carved dresser. I can't remember where I found the one pictured but I like this one from Home Decorators as well. It adds another layer of texture and visual interest to the room without adding another bright color.
// 6. I searched around for the perfect shad of orange and this fabric was the closest I could find. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect shade that's in her apartment! (Here's another option)
// 7. Dwell Studio sells some great fabric that you can get through several different fabric companies. Upholstering a chair in this modern cheerful fabric updates the look of an old chair completely.
// 8. People all over the world lust after Murano glass chandeliers. They're highly coveted and have a price tag to match. If you can make the splurge, I say go for it. But if not try this chandelier from Z-galleries or even spray paint a thrift find a bold turquoise.
