We move to Texas in just one week (follow along with the #myrickmove hashtag on Instagram), so what better way to wrap up my time in SoCal than with my Pasadena, California home tour – FINALLY! We’ve lived in this two bedroom 1960s apartment for two years and were pretty lucky that for a rental, it doesn’t totally suck. It’s not my dream home (because my dream home will have crown molding and ceiling fans that are not ugly) but it’s been a lovely little space for our family of three.
I’ve linked as many sources as possible, but many items are no longer available since I do a lot of custom, secondhand, and clearance sourcing. If you’ve got a question about anything, feel free to email me or send me a tweet.

Now you’ve seen where I work and sleep. It’s kind of like we’re best friends, right?
Starting on Wednesday all of this will be packed up in boxes so I’m taking a minute to appreciate our sweet little home as it currently stands. When we moved to California almost four years ago we had very little money (I didn’t yet have a US work permit and Nate was a master’s student and we were BROKE ASS) so we were forced to decorate on the cheap while we navigated life in a new state as newlyweds. I don’t believe that money buys style, and some of my favorite furniture and decor pieces are ones we found at thrift stores – and waited patiently for a 50% off sale to snag them for even less.
Hope you enjoyed this little peek into my Pasadena, California home! I can’t wait to show you what I’ve got planned for our new house (WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!) in Waco, Texas.
