Paris Style on the cheap.
Found this book at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and decided it would be my bible of style. I've been poring over it, making notes, getting ideas. This week I will be painting my apartment and picking out things to fit. My idea of "Paris Style" won't be Angelika Taschen's mostly because I can't afford it but it will be as close as I can get it. Keeping in mind that I usually go my own way if I can and that will result in something entirely different.
I will take photos of my empty apartment with unpainted walls and then document as I go just for something to do on the blog. If anyone has any good ideas for me, please comment! And no Rae I'm not going to put up 35 paint chips and stare at them for a week.
Cleanliness next to Godliness.
And I have to say that I have an excellent landlord. He cleaned the apartment and started prepping and priming the walls before I got there and, incredibly, his idea of clean and mine are almost the same. He spent hours cleaning the oven!! Actually, that might even be beyond my idea of clean.
