After shopping for some decor items the past few days, I got motivated and finally finish up decorating our small apartment. Welcome to my Okinawa Home Tour!
Still, can’t believe I am doing this (honestly, when we first moved in I didn’t plan on sharing this space one bit).
It’s tough when you live in base housing, overseas! You are not allowed to paint or make any major changes. Creativity is going to be your best friend!!!
The living room, dining area, and the kitchen space is combined, it’s all open concept, except the kitchen has a few upper cabinets dividing the room a bit.
I will show you the kitchen in a later post, it’s a hot mess – blue tiles, steel counter tops, awkward cabinets, oh and let’s not forget the mind-blowing tiled vinyl floor (yes, I am looking at it right now).
But, before I start boring you, why don’t we start with my Okinawa Home Tour.
I have to say, bringing this sectional with us overseas was the smartest idea we had made for this tour so far. It is easy to take apart into 3 parts to be exact.
The covers can be taken off in case something gets damaged during the shipment or if mold will get to it, replacement covers are available at Ikea stores, and they can be washed as well (been there, done that).
The other furniture piece I didn’t want to part with, was my coffee table.
Creating storage is essential to living in a small apartment, my prior “laundry basket” has been turned into a pillow & blanket storage basket. But, often I find my kids toys in it instead!
Fine by me, as long as I don’t have to step on the toys.
Guess it’s the right time of the season to get extra home decor goods, stores are trying to make room for Thanksgiving and Christmas goodies.
I got all of this at 50% off, it sure made my day since we don’t have anything like Marshall’s or Homegoods over here.
These super cute book ends are perfect for my small handmade book collection, and due to the colorful covers, I turned the books all around to kept my display clean and organized.
I also added an antique chalky brushed frame, with a quote I wrote in brush lettering.

The dining area is actually very spacious for base housing, most of my blogging happens on that Farmhouse table!!!
Here are some of my different decor styles throughout the year.
The bedroom is my haven, this is where I hide after a long day of work, screaming kids, or when I want to draw while laying in bed. It’s my perfect little space on earth.
