We have a sneaking suspicion y’all are going to love Sarah from Yes and Yes‘s colorful and thrifty home in St. Paul, MN …
A couple years ago, I had to disassemble my adorable apartment, passing along my furniture to my students and packing everything else into my car. But before I began the process of getting rid of my worldly possessions, I thought my little flat deserved a bit of a photo shoot.
Even though I left home at 18, this is the first apartment that has been 100% my own — not shared with roommates or a boyfriend or partially furnished when I moved in. I found this apartment. I chose the paint color. I picked out every last thing that’s inside these walls. It’s a lovely feeling to have a space that is so unequivocally mine.
Any particularly well-composed, well-lit photos were taken by my very talented friend Sam Rapson.
Also! 98% of what you see here is second hand. And with the exception of electronics, nothing cost more than $150!
