I recently came across an image on Tumblr. I right clicked 'Search Google for this image' and found myself on this ELLE Decoration Instagram Inspiration post. From there I discovered the absolutely stunning, well curated, flawlessly designed work of Homestead Seattle. I highly recommend checking out their Instagram and website. All of the above images have click through links if you're interested. Everything they post is Pinterest worthy.
This is exactly the kind of style I'd like in our apartment but due to limited funds, resources and time I think it'll be a while before we can achieve this look. I've tried my best using the furniture left here by our landlord (or the previous tenants). I painted the walls, window frames and radiator white and then rearranged everything. We then added the plants, IKEA curtains and bookshelf. I even covered the old IKEA chair using light grey fabric (originally a bed sheet).
