Apartment Tour


I’ve gotten quite a few requests for snaps of our new space – so here it is! The best part is that it’s on the 7th floor with lots of windows, so it gets amazing light.


Since we went with a one bedroom, the apartment is basically one big room with a little study in the back. I like the open floor plan, but I also think it makes it feel a bit cluttered at times.


We replaced our guest bed with a fold-out couch for the study, but we’re still figuring out what to do with this space – hoping to hang my grandmother’s art soon and maybe get a rug.


We have a great nook in the dining area where we’d eventually like to buy something that will work as a bar.


The wedding shrine:


The kitchen is the best part!!!


After I took the pic above, we snagged West Elm counter stools half price!


The bedroom is smallish and simple, but I kind of like it that way.


And that’s our home!

      My sister helps me out, as she’s the one with the better decorating taste.

        Not as evidenced by the photos from either of your homes.

          Why did you feel the need to leave a compliment by insulting her sister? You could have simply said she has great taste and left it that. Rudeness gets you nowhere.

      It’s the Henry from West Elm and I think the color is called Putty Gray.

    Love your décor style. The apartment looks classy and elegant, yet also cozy and welcoming. I want to know where you got your sofa in the family room (the very light grey one), the green patterned pillows on the grey sofa, the awesome chair that matches the pillows and your lamps! Please share. TIA.

      Thanks! The beige sofa is from Klaussner and the green pillows were custom made with a fabric I picked to match the antique chair my mom had re-upholstered for me! The lamps are a mixture of target, pottery barn, and antiques with pottery barn shades. The grey sofa is the Henry sleeper sofa from West Elm!
