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!
Comments on The House of Yes: almost nothing cost more than $150
I am floored (hee – apartment punny) … and inspired. This is fabulously awesome.
I love it! Especially the closet. I am so stuck about my closet. I just don’t know how to best use the space without spending a ton of money.
What a beautiful, happy, sunny place! Thanks for sharing it.
Once again proof that awesome style doesn’t cost a lot – a reminder, I confess, I need sometimes. Thank you for sharing!
SO cute–and yay for Minnesota! Whereabouts in St. Paul is this?
This is in Cathedral Hill 🙂
This looks so bright and cheery! Love the thrifty aspects and it still looks fantastic, like you’d never know.
Lovely little apartment! But, I just have to ask…where do you keep the litter box?? That’s always an issue for us. Especially in previous, tiny apartments.
I kept it under my desk in the office. 🙂
Love, love, love this tour. There’s nothing that tickles me more than under $150 furniture!
You are my hero! Your apartment is so bright and lovely. I love your cheap finds and small treasures from world travels.
What a cute little apartment. I can’t wait to get it together and put my home together too! I like how its colorful but not cluttered. Everything has its place. 🙂
It was a lovely flat, but I just have to write a little about the Salvation Army. Party pooper, I know, but I’m serious when I say that I would not support their operations in any way. They’re a conservative and homophobic organisation that has contributed to lobbying of anti-gay laws in African countries, as well as discriminating against homosexuals within their own ranks. They might do some good things, but remember that their mission is to convert people to Christianity as they believe it with the money they receive. In other words, please don’t support these vile actions and attempts that SA do.
