Switching gears a little today. Yes, we’re still talking about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale because it officially ends in a few days, but also because there’s much more to be had than just clothes. I started browsing through the home decor that’s part of the sale and bookmarked way more than my tiny NYC apartment can handle. I can live vicariously through you, right? Because I’m thinking you need this pom pom blanket and a geo print basket to store it in, obviously.
I’ve never invested much in home decor — I have tons of Pinterest boards dedicated to the subject, but have never committed to a certain look or direction. I have a few objects that I keep gravitating to (like this guy!), but the decor is far from complete. So after living in my NYC apartment for over seven months now, the pad is still pretty barebones. My new goal for the next few months: focus on collecting pieces that make my home feel more like home. Inspiration/suggestions are always welcomed!
The boyfriend and I have our first NYC apartment! I’ve been subletting since I moved here and even though it was nice place to set up base for a few months, it definitely lacked a personal touch. So when it came to finding an apartment of our own, we wanted to make sure that it was a place we could call home for the next year or two.
Well I scoured the city, trolled Craigslist, and scoped out a dozen apartments during my search. And just when I started to lose hope, I found this gem: a fourth floor walk-up in Gramercy with new renovations, great living space, and two amazing closets (well … for NYC). From the search, to the application, to the fees and deposits — it’s been an exhausting process. But now that’s behind us, we get to focus on making this apartment and this city our home!
