29 The New Apartment Tour

Are you ready? It isn't "finished", but I wanted to show you anyway. My goal for the space was for it to scream HAPPY. After the last few months I have had, I need it. I think I am getting there. So without further ado:

{The Living Room}
The art is very much a work in progress. I am waiting on a few new prints to come in, and I still need to get my lovely prints from Wolfie and the Sneak framed. I also need to get a couple more magazine files for the bottom shelf of the landing strip so that it looks all cohesive. I also need to get a rug...one day.

{The Bathroom}


A few little peaks of this bathroom {which is oh so much more spacious than my old bathroom- I even have a big garden tub!} This last image is my favorite drawer...filled with my collection of head bands.

{The Bedroom}





This vintage metal bookcase with glass doors is my new prized possession. I knew the moment I saw it I had to have it. I knew exactly where I wanted it to go in the new house. I LOVE it.



This is my super secret behind the door crafting area. I had to improvise since I no longer have room for my crafting desk. I think it a sneaky solution.

The things I really love about this apartment are: the layout {I will have to add a floor plan later. It is essentially a square divided into four rooms with the storage in the center and the circulation path around the storage...perfect!}, everything is essentially brand new {including the kitchen! yeah!}, the balcony {I got lucky with this one, oh and I will have to show you the kinda cool view to the river.}, the tall ceilings {I even have crown moulding.}, and mostly the light {because of the layout every room gets daylight, it is wonderful}.
So what do you think? Any suggestions?

Very nice! I especially love the crafting corner and the black shelves and prints next to the door. Suggestions...hmmm maybe putting some prints higher up would help make the ceiling seem higher? Oh, and I am very jealous of your lovely bathroom.

I wanted to let you know how much I love these spaces. The living room with the chaise and all the little pictures on the wall are an inspiration to me. I love too that you didn't put everything in picture frames. Thanks for posting!

I love the sunglasses display. I only have one pair. Oh, to have a whole wall to choose from!

How awesome! Seriously. My jaw kept dropping. Great use of color. I love the mondo caldendar, the green tray, the numbered jars, the binder clips as frames, the craft area, the...

Jessica said...

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments! I can't tell you how much they mean...

To answer a few questions:
The black and white lattice pieces is actually carved wood (um maybe mdf). I actually got it on super clearance at linens n things before they went out of business.

Almost all of the pillows you see are Thomas Paul. (But the feathers do look exactly like the Ferm Living print).

Looks beautiful. Where did you get the white tiered nigthstands?? They are perfect, and I have been looking for something similar for what feels like eternity!
