Apartment Update


I know this has been long overdue, but I am finally ready to show you some more pictures of our apartment – post-move in!

There are still a few things  that need to be changed/purchased, but we wanted to wait til after my parents’ visit. I’d really like to get a papasan chair or extra love seat for our living room, but since we’re going to be sleeping there while our guests are here, I came up with a temporary solution: a seating corner made out of our old futon mattress and some pillows.

I love the hardwood floors, all the windows and the abundance of natural light, the built-in closet and hutch. Obviously, there are still some improvements to be made, but I am so, so much happier in this new place than in the tiny apartment that we lived in before.

What do you think? :)

  1. So pretty! This feels, to me, like the epitome of a California apartment, all white & hardwood & breezy. I love it!

  2. So pretty. I don’t see much to improve! It is perfect too me! With lots of light and wood! Just the way I like it! :)

  3. It looks beautiful! So fresh and clean and light! I especially love your bedding. I need to get our wood floors sanded and varnished – you have given me the impetus to do it

  4. Ah, that new home looks so comfy and pretty. There is so much light, I love how friendly it looks. :)
    That little corner in the living room with the blue sofa is adorbs – I would crash down there instantly.

    I really believe it when you say that you feel totally at home there.

    Here’s to a happy week. xo.
