A lot of you probably don't know, but despite my many travels recently, I am definitely a home person. Moving from Groningen to Washington DC was a big step for me - probably more of a huge leap of faith. It was probably the scariest thing I've ever done in my life, especially because I get home sick very badly. My loft apartment in Groningen just has a special place in my heart. Even though I love my new studio apartment in Washington DC - I do miss it. That's why I wanted to dedicate this blogpost to my loft apartment home tour in Groningen, because I've never really written anything about it on my blog. The theme of my loft apartment is white, marble & rose gold, so be prepared to see a lot of that in this blogpost, haha!
"I am a very busy person, with not a lot of pamper time dedicated to myself, so that's why I really enjoy my everyday beauty ritual at my make-up vanity."
I like to call this my morning sanctuary. I don't know about you girls, but since I have my own make-up vanity, puttin on make-up is so relaxing. Everytime when I apply my make-up in the morning, I like to reflect on my upcoming day and just take some time to unwind. I am a very busy person, with not a lot of pamper time dedicated to myself, so that's why I really enjoy my everyday beauty ritual at my make-up vanity. If you want to know how I created this make-up vanity, check out this blogpost. I also dedicated a whole post + video on my Make-Up Vanity Tour + Make-Up Collection.
Being a shoe hoarder, I had to dedicate a whole closet to my favorite pairs of shoes. This closet is actually a book shelf from Ikea, but it honestly doesn't look like it at all! I always clean my shoes before I put them in my closet and make sure they are always put in the same way - this makes my closet look very clean and chic. I also added a couple of my designer bags to spice it up a bit. Oh, and I am very aware of the fact that my wardrobe is that versatile - I just have a soft spot for black heels and ankle boots. I actually also did a whole Shoe Collection and Shoe Closet Tour blogpost + video, that's definitely interesting to check out if you like my shoes or considering creating a shoe closet yourself
I think most of you are familiar with my shoe closet and my clothing rack, but not a lot of you have actually seen my clothing wardrobe. I have a lot of clothes, but honestly I do feel like I don't have a ridiculous amount of clothing, because I sell and give away a lot of my stuff. However, I do need a wardrobe for all my clothing items, because a clothing rack alone is not enough. My wardrobe is from Wehkamp, and it's already 4 years old, so I'm not sure if you can still get it. I love the fact that it has a full length mirror on it, because this saves a lot of space in my loft apartment + is super practical!
I already mentioned it, but another part of my loft apartment is my clothing rack + designer bag shelf. Both the floating shelf and the clothing rack are from Ikea. My rose gold hangers are from Yisk, but you can also find them at TK Maxx or Primark. I use my clothing rack as my daily dose of fashion inspo. I'm very strict when it comes to curating it: I only keep my favorite pieces on it and I like to clean it out every week. You can say that my clothing rack is my seasonal basic capsule wardrobe. If you're thinking of building a closet full of basics yourself, check out this blogpost I did on How to Build A Capsule Wardrobe.
You don't want to know how often I fell asleep on this couch from Ikea. I would definitely recommend thrifting your apartment if you cannot find the perfect items you're looking for online. Although I thrifted it for only €25, it was actually one of the best purchases I've ever made. This couch may be small, but for a petite girl like me, it's perfect to lounge on or have a nice little (or not so little) powernap on it. I added a faux sheep skin from Ikea and two pillows from Zara Home to make it a lil' bit more cozy. My marble table is from Xenos, my rose gold basket is from Sissyboy and my blanket is from Zara Home as well. Lastly, my plant is called a Monstera Monstera and it was a gift from my mom.
"A clean and organized desk or office space is essential for any Miss Independent that wants to slay her life and succeed at achieving her goals. If my desk's a mess - my head's a mess."
This is probably the most important spot in my apartment: my desk or office area. This is the place where I get all my creative ideas and where I work my ass off on a daily basis, haha. My desk + shelfing unit is from Ikea, as well as my white chair. My rose gold lamp is from Kwantum and my clipboard from Ikea as well (the print on it is from Pinterest). If you want to see a full desk tour, check out my Desk/Office Tour blogpost + video. Honestly I miss this desk area a lot since I moved to DC, especially because I don't have my big Apple Screen with me to edit. Also, if you're wondering about my laptop: it's a 13 inch MacBook Air with a custom marble case from CaseApp. A clean and organized desk or office space is essential for any Miss Independent that wants to slay her life and succeed at achieving her goals. If my desk's a mess - my head's a mess.
Another spot in my loft apartment that I haven't showed you that much is my jewelry station. Before any outfit is finished, I like to browse through all my accessories to really complete my look. I keep all my jewelry on these marble plates from H&M Home and the thrift shop. My rose gold jewelry box is from H&M Home as well, and my big jewerly box is from Zara Home. Lastly, I added this cute Prada Marfa artwork from Desenio to my jewelry station, because it gave me major Gossip Girl vibes (xoxo).
Last, but so not least is my loft bed. I got a million questions about my loft bed, and to answer them all: this loft bed came with my apartment, so it's actually build into the wall. And no, I cannot fall off my loft bed either, it actually has transparant sides on every side. Also, I can sit straight up in my bed as well, so I don't hit my head when I get out of bed (lol I got so many of these question, haha). My bedding is from H&M Home and my artwork behind me is from Desenio.
