How to Decorate a Small Apartment (on a Budget!) | Kitchen Tour


Art that Reflects me

When I was in Nigeria, I commissioned a painting from a local artist in Benin City. I wanted a painting of three women to represent my two sisters and me. When I got the painting back, it was good but it wasn’t perfect. I can’t explain what I didn’t love about it, but I never framed it or hung it.

Then a few months ago, I came across an artist on instagram with a print that had the vibes I was looking for from the artist in Nigeria, go figure.

I’ll be sure to get a good photo of my wall art in the full apartment tour, but the art hanging above my wine rack can be found here. I ordered the art already matted and framed, because I didn’t have time to figure it out myself and I wanted to hang it right away. The time saved was worth it to me.

  1. Hi Cece,
    I admire your transparency. Your apartment is beautiful and reflects you. I would love to see what you have done with your bathroom.

  2. The apartment is coming along nicely. Ohh I’d love to see the bedroom next. Congrats on getting your own space. Enjoy this time in your life!

  3. I love the lemon greenhouse! I actually recently got a small tattoo of a lemon on my arm. Mostly, because I like lemons. But also, life has unfortunately handed me some big “lemons” lately, and I like the reminder that it is up to me to determine how I react/recover/let them impact my overall life (whether I “make lemonade”). Even if you haven’t had “lemons” lately, I think it’s a good message!
    Anyway, keep the budget tips coming!
