hi friends! recently, our teeny tiny apartment was featured on the everygirl, one of my favorite lifestyle websites. my amazing friend tory shot all the photos and the feature included photos of the apartment and an interview about career, relationship, home decor and general life stuff. since not all of the photos made the final feature, i wanted to share a few more shots of our apartment on my blog. today, i’m sharing photos from our living room! on IG, i always tag photos of our apartment with #aesfnest if you want to see more photos!
our living room is accessed both by the hallway from the front door and from French doors connecting it the living room to the bedroom. the apartment is pretttttty small, but we do our best to make everything fit and make the most of the space. as you can see, I LOVE PLANTS and i’m always looking to add more greenery to the apartment. i think that’s my #1 home decor “tip” – adding plants or succulents instantly add life to a room and in my opinion, can really transform a space.
while we’d love to another couch in the room, it’s just not possible so we opted for furry stools and poufs as additional seating options. the dining room table is also in the living room and we tend to spend a lot of time here – eating dinner, drinking coffee, hosting friends for dinner, and even getting work done, as the table acts as my work station most of the time. it’s not pictured, but behind one of the French doors is a really tall, wide mirror that makes the room feel a little bit bigger, plus is a great spot to do my makeup and hair when I don’t want to be crammed in our little bathroom! my favorite corner of the room is where our gold bar cart is, housing booze and glassware and a special globe that everyone signed at our wedding. above the bar cart are two shelves with more plants, books organized by color and some special trinkets/bookends from my mom.
