We just moved into our new apartment in Marina Del Rey and I’m all set to unpack and redecorate our new place. We definitely have less space than we did before, so we will be getting creative with storage and putting a lot of our excess furniture into storage.
A lot of our decor from Newburyport will transition nicely to California, but I’m hoping to give our new place a lighter, more “West Coast” vibe. I created an Idea Board on Wayfair.com to organize my ideas and I’ve already settled on blues and greens in the bathrooms, and I’m thinking of continuing the theme into the living room. Most of our other furniture will fit, but the living room is my place to completely redecorate since we’re replacing our couches, the movers broke our floor lamp, and our dark, wine-colored Chenille pillows will be donated to Goodwill.
Even though I’m still on the ocean, I feel like California has a different kind of “nautical” feel than New England. Its no longer about anchors, lobsters, lighthouses or buoys, but its about a more laid-back and relaxed ocean vibe. I feel like the array of different blue-greens that are in the painting really pull together the other items creating a cohesive, yet still modern and fresh look. I don’t want anything too matchy-matchy or look like we tried to hard for those laid-back and relaxed vibes!
The apartment is still a scary mess of dismantled furniture and boxes, but I’ll be sure to give you a tour once we’re fully settled!
