{ Stylizimo }

Stumbled across Stylizimo blog, and wanted to share Nina's sweet black and white living room.  AND...her post cracks me up about changing the styling of her living room 3 times since January...using her neutral staples and swapping out pops of accent colors. I laugh because if I had the funds, I'd redecorate non-stop!  Her apartment is pretty adorable and I appreciate her minimal style.  And check out, a home decorating community to share inspiration, DIY projects, and interior design.
