I’m so happy to finally share my tropical apartment design from this past school year – which was my very first college apartment! My roommates and I were very lucky to move into a newly built apartment building and I had so much fun personalizing the space. Ithaca gets very dark and cold throughout its long winter, so walking into a colorful, layered, tropical-inspired space was such a great contrast from the outside. I made sure there were layers of ambient lighting, so at night it felt really warm and welcoming with table and floor lamps illuminating the corners of our living rooms. My bedroom was small but cozy, and the depth of the jaguar mural gave the room the feeling of a real retreat, with the crispness of a serene white bed that I could always count on for a good night’s sleep.

My very own Lucca area rug layered so perfectly in our living room in the classic Boxwood green color way! It added another layer of color and pattern to the space and was so soft under our feet.
