Our new apartment

The new place is finally coming together! There are still some blank walls and floors that need work, but it at last looks like home. I love the hardwood floors, granite countertops, and the incredible views from our balcony.

My Victorian mirror and ceramic garden stool stand just past the foyer. I read somewhere that a mirror should be accessible near the entrance of your home (for a quick check as you leave and for guests as they enter). This wall will likely be painted in the near future.


The foyer leads to the living room and my blue fainting couch…one of my favorite spots to curl up with a book or magazine.

Here’s a shot of the living room taken from the dining room. We still need another area rug. I plan to paint the left wall in a deep peacock color using Ralph Lauren’s faux leather technique, then hang lots of artwork on this wall in gallery style.


The kitchen is done in warm red, orange, & yellow colors…



…including this cute heirloom tomato poster I found.



More to come!
