LITTLE THINGS

Posted on: Friday

Slowly but surely our apartment is coming together and beginning to feel like a true home.. a lived in, slightly messy, bright & artistic home.  Sure pictures must still be hung and a couple of cupboards must be re-organized and a few piles of outgrown baby clothes must be stored away, but we're almost there. Finally.  The unfamiliar sense of chaos and disorder which accompanies moving has nearly completely dissipated, and we are left with a peaceful old home and a rambunctious new family. Here are a few little things that make me feel at home in our humble abode (full apartment tour posts coming soon!)..

  1. love the photo strips! when I move into a new place the real sign for me that it's my home is when I stop wanting to wear flip flops in the shower. It takes me a couple of weeks to feel like I'm not using someone else's bathroom. Ick!

    1. HA! We have been taking photos in old booths for years now and have built up a pretty great collection of photo strips. Perhaps I'll scan them one day and share them here.

  2. Is that a ukelele next to the guitar? I just bought one for Simon and can't seem to tune it... not that it matters at this point :-)

    1. YES! Gaby said it is difficult to tune. He got a tuning app on his iPhone that helps a lot.

  3. It looks lovely. We have that same magnetic knife holder and I love it- so easy and saves space. Looking forward to seeing more.

    1. I love that thing too! I bought it at a restaurant supply store on the Bowery after seeing so many in restaurants that I worked in. It changed the way I use the kitchen!

    1. Oh thank you! Those are my vintage "Edie Sedgwick" dresses, as I like to call them. I only ever really wear them to occasional parties and on New Year's Eve, but they do make lovely decorations the rest of the year!
