That place called home.

I spy a Fox head

I took the Myers-Briggs type indicator test at my last job and "learned" that I wasn't much of a details person. Now, this shouldn't really come as a surprise to anyone who knows me, including myself. Even less surprising is the confirmation that I base all my decisions on my emotions, but that's another post for another day.

But details, you see: details and I have never been very good friends. Details always get the better part of me, whether it's accidentally buying two of the same album on iTunes, typos or even precisely measuring out ingredients for a recipe. Call me careless, attribute it to my ADHD or honestly just blame it on my constant speeding through everything I do, but I just can't for the life of me conquer details.

When it comes to my apartment, though, it's all about the details. It's the hand-crafted touches scattered throughout. It's the meticulous choosing of colors. It's even the textures and shapes and size of everything that goes inside.

Here's a quick peek inside my roommate's and my quaint little apartment: welcome!

Remember this garland?

What about this tray? The flowers are made of magazine pages and straws for stems and yes, that's absolutely an empty Patron bottle serving as a vase.

   
But wait, there's more! Remember those chairs? And the pillows? And the painting?

 Oh my, or how could we forget the placemat project?

  2. You are speaking to me! Are you an ENFP too? I'm so bad at the details. Can you imagine how my head was spinning during wedding planning? Yikes
