My Brooklyn Apartment

Wednesday, 27 February 2019


While I was on my flight back to New York I was trying to think of how many apartments I’ve lived in since college. The answer (drumroll, please) is... ten. This is what happens when you don’t stay put in one place for too long. While I am so over moving in and out of new places, and lugging my stuff around the world, I am so not over decorating - it actually brings me a lot of joy. The living room/kitchen is finally complete and I thought I would share these parts of the space with you – still working on the bedroom and bath, so those will have to wait for another day.

Wine Rack / Kitchen Rug / Living Room Rug / Mini Rug (Similar) / Ubud Print - (Extra Large Size) / Teardrop Lamp 

The reason why I chose to move into this space was 1. The location and 2. The little Juliet balcony that sits off the living room. It’s big enough to fit two chairs, is perfect for the warmer months and you can see the Freedom Tower from the balcony! Some of the first things I purchased for the new flat was my coffee table and TV stand. I have wanted a hairpin coffee table for ages, and ended up finding a really affordable one ($99) on Wayfair. They don’t send this to you in a million pieces and it’s very simple to put together by yourself.



I somehow managed to take a lot of my candles and cookbooks back with me from London, which is a little ridiculous but I still did it! All of the crackle jar candles are from West Elm and then I have a couple basic Diptique candles scattered in the apartment. My spiky cup is from Etsy - which is actually one of my first ever purchases from the site. I remember meeting the seller at a craft fair in London and she was so sweet! My couch is Ikea and somehow survived both my brother and I's college years, and my throw pillows are from Indigo. Everything in the apartment is really budget-friendly, except for my bamboo blinds which were a bit of a splurge.


These twinkle lights are inexpensive and so pretty at night. I have them in my living room and bedroom too. I also have mini succulents all over the apartment. All of my artwork is from places that I have visited to remind me of those times and experiences - so I have Ubud above my couch, Capri by the TV and Malta in the kitchen!


That's all for now - I hope you enjoyed my little apartment tour and speak soon!
