I’m on quite a home design kick right now. I’ve been DVR-ing The Nate Berkus Show everyday to watch while the kiddo naps, spending more time on Pinterest, and stalking my mailbox daily in anticipation of this year’s IKEA catalog. We’ve been really trucking away at the inside of our apartment, building a small gallery wall arrangement in the living room and finally purchasing a cozy little dining table this week! I really want to become “house proud,” to really enjoy our small family apartment and entertain more often.
As the weather warms up, I’ve been turning my efforts toward making the outside of our home pretty as well. We rent, but are lucky enough to have a sizable patio space. Along with planning for a container garden with a mix of flowers and edibles, I’ve been bookmarking cute and clever ideas for displaying house numbers, such as personalized address plaques. In our case, I’d like to display our apartment number more prominently, like we own the place. Along with lots of DIY options, there is a website that sells just residential address plaques. Especially when renting, every little bit of personalization counts, and custom address plaques are a great (and very affordable) way to embrace your space.
