Apartment Details

I can't believe I've been living in my apartment for five months now. I only now feel moved in. It has definitely been a work in progress. If someone gave me 15k I would have had my apartment done yesterday. But reality is a wonderful thing. It puts things in perspective and you learn to enjoy the process of it all coming together slowly. Before I moved in, I had a vision of the space I wanted to create. I had collected inspiration along the way. My apartment is still a work in progress, but the living room / kitchen area is coming along nicely. I'm really pleased with how well it is turning out. A full apartment tour is coming very soon, but I thought in the meantime I'd share some close ups of my apartment.


Starting off with the living room space. I wanted to keep the room minimal with a low modern tv stand (CB2) so I could hang my TV on the wall. I've always thought this look was clean. My Dad however, thinks it looks like we're in the doctors office. (LOL). I'm still figuring out how I want to decorate this piece of furniture, but that will come with time. Right now, I have a few candles, flowers and magazines. These three are easy and affordable ways to decorate your space. I have added a copper theme to the space with copper accents such as this Anthropologie lantern, which I absolutely love! Below I have a copper fruit basket from Houzz. I'm still figuring out what I want to put in it. I also have a CB2 acrylic tray to keep things organized as well as break up the space. On the far right I have my Marshall Kilburn speakers.
I am still rearanging everything, but for now I like how I've displayed my Marshall speakers. I am planning on collecting a few more fashion books along the way, but these magazines will do for now. I have been meaning to repurchase another Diptyque candle to put under my cloche from Crate and Barrel.
Here is a snippet of my kitchen. More photos coming soon. I have a white quartz countertop so I kept things light on top. Again I have a marble and copper theme throughout my apartment. I picked up these salt & pepper shakers from Sur La Table, the brand is Cole & Mason. I loved that they came in the copper finish. I think the copper adds such a nice touch to my kitchen. I have them displayed on a marble cutting bored from Pottery Barn. Next to it is a marble utensil holder from Crate and Barrel.
A side angle of my living room. In the far left I have my acrylic bar stools I picked up from CB2. These were well worth every penny. They make the room super stylish. I found this bar cart on sale at Cost Plus (World Market) for $100, which I think is a steal! I love that it ties in with my bar stools. I've added a faux fur throw blanket to add some texture and soften an already modern space. I've also added some color to the space. I know color... a hard word for me to swallow. Blush pink is the color I've decided to go with. Absolutely love these West Elm velvet pillow cases I recently purchased. I plan to add accessories in this color throughout my apartment.
A close up of all the barware I have. I am in dire need of wine and martini glasses. I also could use a shaker. I received the marble coasters and glassware for Christmas. I thought the gold popped really nicely against the acrylic.
Another close up of my bar cart. The best part is the size. It fits perfectly in the nook of my living room, next to my sofa. My alcohol collection is slowly growing... but that's for another post.
