PHEW! I can't believe it's almost MAY! Its almost 6 months since deciding to move to Portland!  About a month ago I got settled into my own 1BDR. I haven't sent anything from Texas yet (long story) but I was lucky enough for Jennifer from Modern Map Art to gift me a print of my hometown! My room is shades of Black, gray and white so it fits in so perfect. I am still in the process of slowly decorating and will share more as time passes.
I love these map art prints! They are such a good thick quality and come shipped in a poster tube to avoid any damage. I also talked about them here. I love great wall art and wanted to share a little inspiration if you are looking to newly decorate a room. I am really into simple industrial things right now. The one thing missing from my bed is a headboard, only because I haven't found one I love yet. My bed is between two ladder bookshelves that I found online as a set of 2 for around $90. I was super excited by how cheap that was! I wasn't so excited to build them. Each ladder has 4 shelves and in a "small" place I like being able to stack many things vertical. On the bottom shelves I am looking for some stylish boxes to use as storage. 
I found these clamp on industrial lamps at Ikea! These are black but I want to spray paint the silver parts gold soooo bad. they were $8 each and the bulbs were $3 for a set of 2. What a steal! Lamps can get expensive and all of the ones I liked similar to this from Target were $30 each. I love how these move around with the arms, but i kind of noticed they remind me of the dentist or doctors office. I mean... I did say industrial inspiration. The lamps also come in white, yellow and green. I was so close to buying yellow but I am happy with Black. 
The frame for this print is also from Amazon, I found a 24x36 frame in black for $26. My bed is from Zinus and is seriously the most comfortable mattress I have ever purchased! I will make a post on this bed specifically next month. If you are are an urban living individual this is one of the best sleep solutions ever. Again, I need a headboard ....and probably another set of pillows. 
Its fun putting together this space with my personality. It is really challenging because this place is not Texas sized, but it has been ok so far. I'm making it. I hear summer is coming to the PNW soooo we will see what an "amazing summer " is. This winter was record breaking cold and snow, this spring is record breaking rain. If this summer has record breaking heat I will feel right at home! Who is laughing at my 5% tint now? Can I just get some sun?
