Living in Chicago can be tough, especially when your apartment is the size of a shoebox and you're sharing it with a boy and a 75-pound chocolate lab (named Webster). When decorating, I decided on a gray palette with gold, black, and pastel details to appease my boyfriend's more manly preferences, while still having hints of my favorite sherbet hues.
Over time, this little apartment in Lincoln Park has become a happy place with all of our favorite things. And with pastels being summer's standout palette, my recent outfit choices have been a direct reflection of my apartment décor and pastel obsession. Take a tour of my cozy digs to see how I'm incorporating this summer trend into my home and style, ahead.
