I‘m severely pms-ing but I just need to vent.
I just finished a 5-day clean/tidy/declutter marathon and somehow I still hate every single square inch of my apartment.
I adore a really clean, minimalistic look. Lots of white combined with dark tones and gold/silver details.

I just don’t know how to achieve a look that I genuinely like and coming home to. There’s a bunch of things I despise about my living situation:
- The apartment itself is shit. Really orange-y oak wood doors but ashy brown oak pvc and the general architecture is just awful, so I can’t really fit any quality furniture in it.
- My furniture is all mixed together, because I’m broke af. I think my sofa is probably one of the ugliest parts in my apartment. It’s a really old ikea beddinge and the worst part is: you can’t even sit on it! I genuinely just have it because I can’t afford a new one and it works as a guest bed. But it’s so hideous and I hate it with a burning passion. But also my other furniture just never looks right? I guess I just suck really bad at furnishing…
- I have so. much. stuff. But then again, especially those minimalistic living space pictures make me really question how authentic they are but also myself. I always thought it’s just because I have so many small things lying around but even now that I have all my stuff in boxes it still looks nowhere near as pleasing as other living or work spaces.
