I am officially all moved into my new apartment!
It’s so important to spend a decent amount of time planning, measuring and discovering what catches your eye that you’d love in your apartment. Creating an environment where you feel at your complete ease and comfort is the best way to go! My mum is a bit of a home interior lover herself – we spent three weeks together picking and choosing colours and patterns that would fit and work well in my new studio. Because I’m originally from a tropical environment, I was ever so inspired to keep the beach vibe within my apartment. After 5 hours spent in ikea, we found couches, pillows, draws, candle holders and plenty of other utilities to get a quick start – and already, I knew blues, whites, greys and blacks would really make my apartment make me feel at home. We then headed to Macy’s for discounts in bed and bath, to home goods for other buys and the local bed bath and beyond! Soon after, we headed down to my favourite shop, WEST ELM just located a few streets away from me on the Upper West Side. With great discounts, I was able to come to a conclusion for the finishing touches of my apartment.
I never realised how much time and energy finding and searching for furniture took out of you! I can definitely and happily say that it will be a while till i go through this process again.
And just a quick thanks to the boys at ikea who helped build the couch and draws… it only took them 3 hours…
And last but never the least, thank you to my beautiful Mother – you have made my life living in this city the most amazing experience I could have ever asked for xx
