I'm nearing the end of a LONG (seemingly endless), yet incredibly amazing renovation of my bedroom and I wanted to share some of the progress I made during Popecation with all of you. For all of you non-northeasterners - Popecation is a glorious 3.5/4 day weekend that was bestowed upon us by the powers that be in Philadelphia once it was determined that the major road ways were being closed in Philly during the Papal visit. I considered that Pope Francis' 1st of many blessings during his incredible trip to the states. :)
For those of you just getting to know me through this blog and my weekly news segments with Kyle, let me give you a little backstory on myself. I live in Philadelphia and I have a pretty cool 9-5 working for Urban Outfitters HQ doing production for their womens woven tops, jackets, rompers and skirts. While my 9-5 is pretty cool all by itself, my true passion is sharing my love of style,culture, travel and food with all of you! I am obsessed with interior decorating and LOVE LOVE LOVE finding creative ways to store and display my clothing and accessories.
The renovation that I'm doing in my room has been a labor of love. Back story: I live in a really awesome condo in downtown Philly, but this really awesome condo has one really big not so awesome problem - lack of closet space. I only have one traditional 7 foot wide closet. I'm sure that works for a lot of people - in fact - I'm sure it works for most people, but I LOVE clothing and I don't really believe in purging because fashion is cyclical so that means that I have accumulated a lot of clothing over the years. Now that I am living in Philadelphia full-time (I used to split my time between Philly and Brooklyn) I have to find a way to house my entire wardrobe in one room at the same time. Not an easy task my friends - not easy at all! This renovation has taught me to be super creative with my space and storage choices. I'm so excited to share what I've learned with all of you! Hopefully you'll be able to take some of my ideas and make your bedroom what I like to call "functionally fabulous".
