Nesting Hits

Sharing is caring!

Considering we don’t spend a lot of time at our rented place — we stay mostly at my mom’s cos that’s where our daughter lives… it’s complicated — I’m really into nesting and looking for ways to decorate the place. Maybe it’s my subconscious hoping we’d actually get to spend more time there if it looks ~prettier than it does now. Who am I kidding? But let me indulge in this.

Our rented space has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, kitchen and dining area. Among all of these spaces, I’d have to say my favorite is the living area just because it’s the one we actually took a bit more time to ~prettify. We recently bought a chair and a teal vase from a surplus shop, and I think they look really well in the space. We also looked at a couple of paintings last night after having dinner, and my husband and I agreed that we’ll invest in paintings and other art pieces in the near future.

Now I don’t claim to be an expert. I’ve always been a fan of interior design, albeit lacking the skill to translate my mental mood boards and visions into real-life creations, but just like any other millennial, YouTube is my best friend when it comes to this. I love watching room transformations and getting tips here and there. I’m not sure where we’d live in a couple of months from now, but I don’t think my nesting feeling would subside till then.

If you’re feeling like nesting, too, here are some of my favorite videos.


I love this video (and all the other videos Mr. Kate has made) because it has black in it. And I mean, black is a big part of the design! 




We don’t live in a small space. Well, it’s not big, but it’s not small either. But I love Elle Uy’s tips. And I love how she was able to explain her tips really, really well. 



It’s a renovation video! It has Mila Kunis in it! Yes!



I’m not as good at crafts as I’d like to be but I love getting DIY project ideas.



I love the vibe of this room. I’m sure the upkeep is hard, but I’d really love to decorate our bedroom similar to this.
