Peter and I have been spending the past few weeks re-organizing and re-decorating our living room. It hasn’t be stressful at all. 😉 I started to feel the need to shake up our space back in November, and ringing in 2017 really pushed us into action.
I wanted the space to feel more open and airy, which is always a bit tricky if you have a small space and each space is multi-use. One evening, I randomly searched Craigslist for “orange couch” and one popped up. It was in pristine condition and just traveled from California to New York. I quickly emailed the poster inquiring about the size and availability, and she quickly responded…
The poster was my friend, Mindy, who just moved back to New York City! What are the odds? The couch meant a lot to her and could no longer fit in her new apartment, and so I was happy to adopt it! I love when things like that happen. That seems to happen more often than not in our space, so it truly felt meant to be. The couch is being so loved, Mindy!
I had to bring this chair in from the yard for the winter. It’s fine there for now, but I can’t wait to enjoy it out back again.
Peace fingers are a gift from my friend, Tennessee.
Our table is from Ikea. We loved the design of the legs and how if pulled out, it can fit 8 people! When pushed back, it doesn’t interrupt the space and it feels like the perfect hosting table while saving us a good buck.
My preferred method of coffee, a Chemex.
The cool and sometimes frustrating thing about apartments is that they are always in transition. So even though I share the space with you today, who’s to say I won’t uproot every piece of furniture next week? So many things are undone and so many things have yet to be thought about. Things are in constant motion around these parts.
