My New York Apartment Tour

Total
Shares

Welcome Home.

My apartment in the Village is my sanctuary from the bustling city below. It’s also the place I moved into when my last relationship ended, so making it feel warm, welcoming, and most of all – new – felt really important when decorating. I needed it to look and feel different than before, a place to make happy memories as I took a step forward with my life.

I got rid of practically everything I owned when I moved in search of that fresh start, and was lucky enough to be able to rely on my wonderful friends at AllModern to help me figure out all the new pieces I’d need (for a second time in NYC no less). If you’re looking to furnish your home with stylish, well-made pieces quickly, AllModern is my absolute go-to destination. They have an endless supply of chic, affordable pieces for pulling a place together in a flash. I needed, and they really delivered.

With this apartment, I wanted the vibe to feel light and accessible – like you’d feel comfortable snuggling up on the couch rather than being nervous to walk on the carpet. I wanted understated mid-century touches, tons of plants, and for everything to feel quite uncluttered. And with that, I’ll open the front door and welcome you in to my cozy, West Village apartment!

This corner in my living room, accessible right after you walk through the hallway near my front entrance, holds a special place in my heart. I love the combination of textures and colors between the Azemmour Woven Armchair, rattan cabinet, and glass mirror (here’s a nice option that’s similar to mine). The cabinet is one of the few pieces I’ve held on to for years – it actually came from Los Angeles with me to NYC in early 2012. I love it, even though one of the doors doesn’t close all the way anymore. A New York apartment at heart, I get dressed most often in this corner of my house. Every room has many functions! ๐Ÿ™‚

An enormous, cozy couch was a MUST-HAVE for my new apartment. I’m a sucker for Netflix and chilling, what can I say? The lovely rug is from ABC Home and unfortunately I can’t find a link for you. Just like in my corner, I wanted to combine different textures to create warmth. The soft rug pairs really well with the almost blush-colored couch, and I love the dimension the coffee table adds.

“Coast + Peak” Print

Next to the couch on one side I added a marble side-table (another piece I’ve held onto for a while, also from ABC Home) and this lovely “Coast + Peak” Print for a modern look and feel. I’m also obsessed with Byredo and have their candles, perfume, and soaps sprinkled throughout my house.

Next to the couch is my dining area, a rarity in smaller New York apartments. I could have extended the sitting area of my living room to include a love seat or additional chairs, but because I love to cook and entertain at home, a dining room table was high on my list. I fell in love with the Lars Dining Table from AllModern! The white top and light, wooden base make it feel timeless and I paired it with navy chairs from West Elm to round out the area.

I needed a good looking TV stand because I spend a lot of time in front of mine so I went with this white number from Blu Dot (I also have a different version/different color in my bedroom). I love the legs on this piece and the little grates on the door so I can keep the stand closed and change the channel without moving. Remember the days when you had to physically turn the nob on the television to change the channel? We’re REALLY LIVING in 2017 you guys.

Now, want a quick peek into my bathroom before heading into my bedroom?

A huge reason I got this apartment was for the bathtub. I love the color, the depth, everything! It’s so relaxing in there after a long day in the city.

Let’s hit the sheets now – it’s bedroom time!

I’m a tiny person who loves a king-sized bed. I was lucky enough to find an apartment with a bedroom big enough to cater to my silly needs and so what was I to do except shove a king in here? My bed has a low-profile and fits the space really nicely. It comes out farther on all sides than the mattress does though, so watch your shins! The side tables have come along with me throughout the years and though I toyed over getting rid of them, I made the decision to let ’em stay. 

The orange paint print just visible on the floor is available here, and the photograph of the leaves above my bed is right here!

Another Blu Dot TV stand sits in my bedroom, this one in Walnut. This piece is quite large AND heavy so I’d highly recommend having the AllModern delivery team bring this one in and set it up. Trust me on this one.

I also get compliments on my television all the time – it’s a Samsung Serif TV and it’s NEATO.  Below are a few more touches from my TV stand.

On the left is the “After Sunset” print that I absolutely love, and on the right is a Vornado fan and Dyptique diffuser.


So, that’s it for the peek inside my West Village apartment! I hope you guys like how I put everything together. It’s really a sanctuary for me and I love being surrounded by pretty, understated items. Would love to hear what you think in the comments!

I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.

  4. Lo! I used to watch the Hills and Laguna Beach back in the day, and I used to listen to the Lady Lovin’ podcast on my morning commute (I work from home now so podcast time has reduced for me). I’m not sure why but I randomly thought of your website the other day and so glad I popped on here last night to have a read. I LOVE your new space, you’ve created such a lovely home ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing your personal stories on here lately too, it certainly helps to know when you’re not the only one going through difficult things like anxiety. Enjoy your weekend. xx

  5. Hi Lo,
    I love what you did to your place. I am crazy about this woven chair. the only think maybe you could add to your living room is some colour here and there. for example a patterned rug or colourful cushions … (i am a designer and also have my own company or handmade rugs and other stuff for the house)
    xoxo

  6. Hi! I am in love with your couch I tried to go on the website through the link you provided and it took my to the sectional page with tons of different couches. I tried to find the exact one but itโ€™s hard to figure out exactly which one it is because it doesnโ€™t come up under Hugo. Can you send the real link or name of couch from your NY apartment? Thank you so much!

  7. Editorial eye – in the styling for this shoot, the TV in your living room was styled out of the picture when you reference your TV stand. From the writing, it’s clear that the television is normally on top of the stand, but it’s nowhere to be found in this shot.

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).

How To Cure Your Hangover For Your Big Meeting

Everyone knows they should drink their body weight in water when they get home from a sloppy night out, drink some coffee the next morning, and gorge on greasy pizza. But what about the tricks of the trade that are lesser-known aids for helping quell a hangover that is so impending that the Homeland Security Advisory System switches the danger zone from orange to red (sorry, guys – the times are a’troubling me)? Here are my personal tricks that truly, honestly help me move through a hungover place to a less hungover place when I wake up at the crack of dawn after a night out, stumbling around my room looking for something to save me from myself…
