Home Sweet Home

I’m home sick today so I think it’s the perfect time to share pics of our apartment. See below for a sneak-peak of our humble abode. 

Living Space

The Living Room is really coming together. It’s already comfy, and once we have curtains and some more wall art it’ll be even more homey (and aesthetically pleasing). 

DIY “Media Center”

We’re using bookcases as our Media Center, and we've added lanterns to make the area feel extra cozy. 

Room With a View

This is the view from our living room. Come Fall the foliage makes it really lovely. 

Our Plant, Willoughby

Perched on the kitchen windowsill, Willoughby is getting tons of light. 

Bedroom Window

To lighten up the protective bars I like to place flowers (in ball jars) on the sill. 

Zoom in on the Label...

This cracks me up. (And kinda makes me feel safe.)

(More images to come once I’ve done a little more decorating…) There’s so much I want to do with the place! I’ve been obsessed with nesting via Pinterest. Check out my board.

  3. I love your home! I've always wanted an interior exposed brick wall! It looks so cozy and comfortable! I've only seen Manhattan shots like that on 'Sex and the City" Is that where it's filmed?

  4. There is one very old subway conductor who says "Myrtle and Willoughby Avenue" better than anyone else. I hope thats where you got the name for your Philodendron
