I’m happy to tell you guys that we are all moved into our new temporary apartment, and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. Now, although we are moved in, that does not mean we are unpacked 😆. We still have a ton of organizing to do, but I just needed to get in a little decorating after all of the stress lately. I have 2 fantastic products below that I completely recommend and then a recipe you can use maybe even today. I hope you enjoy our 2 new modern apartment accessories…
Black & White Modern Area Rug Runner
I’m slowing figuring out how to live in a much smaller space, and realizing that it pretty much comes down to letting things go. I feel as though we were literally burying ourselves in that big house, and I’m thankful we are out. Now I have a clean slate, and can try to minimize how we live. If you missed the tour of our apartment, click here to see it: APARTMENT TOUR. Here’s my new cooking station that desperately needed a rug. I wanted something fun, different, and modern.
I saw this very interesting “woven” indoor/outdoor washable runner and loved the pattern against our horizontal laminate wood floors. It’s playful geometric lines give me that modern vibe, with a splash of “boho”. I’ve always been a big fan of black and white, so I just couldn’t resist…
I placed it on the kitchen floor and we both loved it’s clean cool look, however there was one problem. This rather thick cotton woven runner had a mind of it’s own so it needed something to keep it grounded. So, I remembered I had an extra pack of “rug grippers” that I could add to the 4 corners of the runner underneath. Have you ever tried them? They work EXCELLENT, and are way easier than anything else I have tried, because you can wash the rug with them on it 😲.
Double Wall Glass Insulated Stackable Coffee Mugs
Okay, so now that we have the coolest runner in the apartment complex, I needed some new coffee mugs because I’m tired of the old hairlined stained ones I have uses for about 100 years 😆. Time for a coffee mug facelift. Check out this gorgeous double insulated clear glass beauty…
I love how the cup matches my “glam” acrylic/glass coffee table. This all makes me feel rather chic, lol. I’m actually not chic, but sometimes it’s fun to be a little chic, ya know? I stack 4 of these right on our new counter next to our mini-Keurig. They are super light for my dainty hands & wrists, and my husband’s exact words “I love how you can see the creamer being poured into the coffee-it looks refreshing”. Bingo…these babies rock.
PS: I actually use these for tea as well. Soup is next!
If you’re in the mood for a cup of coffee now…here’s a muffin recipe that is good for you and your loved ones. I will be back next week with all the tricks I used to stage our house. I can’t wait to tell you all my secrets 🤭Posted by
