My Modern Bohemian Nashville Apartment Tour
I’m so glad to finally be sharing our Nashville apartment tour! For those of you guys that are new here, I moved across the country (a 46 hour drive!) from Portland, OR, to Nashville, TN with my boyfriend and labradoodle puppy Indio. We could only bring whatever fit in the back of my jeep! So it took me quite a while to collect enough decor and furniture to fill this apartment, especially on a small budget, but I did it lol. The complex we live in, The Anson, is a brand new apartment complex so the interiors are all updated and very modern which I love, but I really wanted my apartment to have a bohemian feel to it. So I hit up a ton of thrift stores and found super cute bohemian home decor + furniture pieces (which inspired me to start Urban Darling Shop!) and I love the result of my modern, bohemian apartment.
I love mid-century modern furniture and I found the perfect mid-century style bar stools at Target! Similar bar stools on Amazon. The kitchen in our apartment is amazing! I’ve loved having this huge island to work on. I don’t have room for a desk but I haven’t needed one since I set up office on the island!
My parents gave me this vintage rug for my birthday that they found at an antique store in Arizona! It’s the perfect pop of color in this cool-toned kitchen. I love the boho decor pieces I thrifted for this kitchen. I loved displaying decor in a grouping style with pieces that compliment each other. I used a mix of wicker, southwestern style clay pieces, and wood with several plants too! We spend a ton of time in the kitchen so it had to be a space that we loved.
Another unique feature in this apartment is the nook area off the entry of the apartment. I used this area to display some of my favorite bags! I styled some baskets on the shelf and the large Golden Pothos was the final touch. There is really cool sliding barn door that leads into the bathroom and when it’s open this nook area gets tucked away.
The bathroom has the same modern finishes that the kitchen does which I loved because I’m all about cohesiveness and coordination lol! My boho decor pieces really give this space the laid back feel that I wanted. I bought the mud cloth shower curtain at TJ Maxx years ago and I brought it over because I love the look of it. Similar shower curtain. The checkered rug is from Colombia, it’s one of the many pieces that my parents have given me from Colombia where my mom is from.
I DIY’ed this hanging shelf several years ago too (blog post here) and it was the perfect piece for this corner because I was able to display a faux plant and a ceramic lady face vase that I made in a pottery class. I love this War is Over post that I’ve had forever. I bought the print and frame on Amazon! Both of the faux plants are from Walmart (similar plants here and here). I knew I needed faux plants for this space because there aren’t any windows in this bathroom and they were perfect! All of the wicker pieces and my mini peacock chair were thrifted.
My parents gave me this cowhide rug and the colorful rug below it, both of which are from Colombia! They bought a bunch of these on their honeymoon almost 30 years ago. I love being able to display these pieces! I layered them together below my brand new mid-century style couch from Burrow and I love how they look. Similar rug. Similar couch.
These 3 coordinating prints are from Desenio. The colors in my rug compliment the prints perfectly! The warm, muted colors in the print are the colors I wanted to work throughout my apartment and I’m obsessed with them. I love how the mud cloth pillows and blanket coordinate with the cowhide rug. My yucca cane and a couple of thrifted baskets complete this space. Similar pillows.
This mid-century style tv console was perfect for this small wall space that’s shared with our bedroom door. I love that it has a few shelves that I can display decor pieces on and my record collection fit in the open space perfectly! I stored all of our dvd’s in the cabinet on the right side of the console.
I kept the tabletop simple with a few plants and wicker baskets. On the walls I displayed a Colombian wind chime as a wall hanging and a macrame hanger with a cacti. I love the simplicity of these pieces! Similar macrame hanger.
There is a space in the corner between the living room and the kitchen and I wasn’t sure what to do with it for the longest time and then I found this amazing wicker barrel chair at a Goodwill. I had been looking for one for so long so it was a dream when I finally found one! Similar chair. I styled it in this corner with this corner shelf I thrifted around the same time. I displayed thrifted wicker, wood, and southwestern clay pieces with a few plants on the shelves. The rainbow print is Desenio and coordinates with the prints in the living room. I love how this corner turned out!
Last but not least the master bedroom! My mid-century style bed frame, mattress, and bedding set are from Lull. I wanted to get some gold sconces and nightstands for this wall but never got around to it! For now my bird of paradise and a thrifted basket wall with blankets complete this wall. The cowhide pillow and colorful rug at the end of the bed are also from Colombia via my parents! Similar cowhide pillow. The colorful pillow was thrifted and I picked up the faux sheepskin throw on Amazon.
I knew that I wanted to have a basket wall in my new apartment and the wall behind my bed ended up being the perfect wall to display one. It makes a great statement on this wall! It took several trips to several thrift stores to collect enough basket for this wall and I’m obsessed with the result.
This mid-century dresser and chair were some of the first pieces I bought from a local mid-century vendor in Nashville. I thrifted the wicker mirror above my dresser and most of the pieces on my dresser as well. Similar mirror. I styled these wicker, wood, and ceramic+ clay pieces in a grouping style on my dresser. It’s probably my favorite styled are in my apartment! Plants complete the space for me. Similar dresser and letter board.
I love how my apartment turned out! Every single piece I hand picked and love. There isn’t one thing I would want to get rid of which I think is the first time in my life I can say that about my decor! I’ve had way to much fun thrifting and decorating pieces for this space. It makes such a huge difference when you love the space you are living in.
