Apartment Details11:00:00 AM
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.
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.
