I almost fell out of my chair when I found my apartment on Mimosas in the Morning yesterday! Even today, I cannot stop smiling. My apartment (or my Bachelorette pad, as I like to call it) is definitely a work in progress, but it's the first place that is mine all mine and I love it. I thought I'd add a little personal commentary to Allyson's fab photos.
[colorful pillows on my couch a la target + pier 1]
[area rug + my interim ottoman-turned-coffee table. some say ghetto, i say resourceful.]
[a diy (if you call writing on a chalkboard a diy) for my rarely used kitchen. i'm hopeless when it comes to cooking and this quote is perfect for me. that julia, a woman after my own heart.]
[pottery barn bar stools indefinitely borrowed from my mom (thanks, ma!) + my cherished speedy, my first and only LV, purchased on the champs élysées in paris. the best souvenir from last year's trip.]
[slightly embarrassed for having sh*t my dad says on my bookshelf + redeeming myself with well-used maps of ireland, london, paris]
[a reminder as to why i need to buy curtains. heyyy, neighbors!]
How does one not know her apartment is being photographed, you ask? Well, remember when Allyson spent the weekend with me? I had to work at way-too-early o'clock and left her a key so that her day didn't have to start when mine did. That super sneaky, super cute little photographer! I had no idea. Thank you, Allyson! I'm over the moon and beyond flattered.
