Welcome to my apartment tour!
This has been a long time coming, but I'm excited to finally share my space with you. Apartment-hunting can be a difficult process, and when I found the space I'm in now, I was feeling both thrilled and overwhelmed. My requirements were that it be bright, light-filled, and dog-friendly (hi Weaver!), so when I discovered a space that offered all of that in addition to crown molding, high ceilings, and a chandelier, I could barely contain my excitement. I felt as if I had found a studio apartment in Paris - not Boston. Studios can be challenging, though, and I didn't want guests to feel as if they were standing in my bedroom when they walked in. I kept that in mind when creating the layout and kept my decor cozy, romantic, and a bit industrial.
My favorite thing in the entire apartment? You would probably guess my oversized mirror, which was something I had wanted for over a year. I do absolutely adore the mirror, but my real favorite is this blush-colored chair. It belonged to my grandmother and originally had a dark cherry-wood frame that I later painted white. I love the subtle pop of pink it provides, and it feels special to have an old family piece in my apartment.
The apartment isn't quite finished yet - as you can see, I'm still looking for closet storage solutions (so please ignore the moving box that holds my shoes!).
Also, although not pictured, the apartment includes two other rooms: the bathroom is through the door to the left of my closet, and the kitchen is through an archway the far left corner.
