With my sights on NYC come May, it’s only bittersweet that I am completely, and perfectly, and incandescently happy with the apartment I currently share with my best friend Kat. Since taking a tour of the space last Fall I have been visualizing turning it into my dream apartment. While most are baffled that I take such interest in perfecting such a temporary situation I can only say that the aesthetic of my surroundings reflect on my mood, my behavior and my energy. I also know that I’ll never work with this amount of space in NYC (at least not for the next 10-15 years) so I’m unapologetically taking full advantage. After finally accepting the fact that I can’t move into the home section of an Anthropologie store, (let alone take it all home with me) Kat & I put together a space we truly love. On the horizon are a couple more embellishments to be shared in the future. . .
The nook—several novels finished here (with plenty of people-watching breaks).
Most utilized piece of furniture I own—the vanity.
One of my favorite pieces in the entire apartment—One Kings Lane.
A punch of color & vintage photograph of my Nana (dated 1940) when she attended my university.
A successful (rare) DIY project done over a productive yet relaxing long-weekend back home provides much-needed color over our black marble fireplace.
