New York Apartment Update: Our Livingroom
It’s almost the weekend! Just this one workday to go, then it’s time for take-out, bland-selv slik (pick & mix candy), and a Friday movie. Now that Danish X-Factor is over I’m not even sure what to watch anymore, hah!
I was up early this morning, taking Edward’s daughter to school (she has to be there at 7.30AM, which I personally think is a little too early for the kids, but no one asked me…). Now I’m sat with an Americano and a smoothie bowl, writing this blogpost. I thought it is about time for a peek inside our apartment, since we’ve now lived here for 6 months and are very far in the decor. There’s definitely a long way to go until I’m 100% happy. We want a rug for the sofa area, we would love a bigger glass top for our dining table, I would love to add a lamp with cozier light than we have atm, I want to hang up photos, and I would loooove a brass bar cart. And that’s only the livingroom.
The wooden beer boxes on the above photos I got from a neighbor, who just wanted to throw them out. I immediately saw an opportunity to store my many magazines and books. They’ve been piling up under the coffee table, and Edward has been complaining, so there he go, pretty storage for my bibles. Here you find September issues of Vogue, LOVE magazine, DANSK magazine, Tanya’s Christmas by Tanya Burr, and Capture your Style by Aimee Song. Of course, that also gives me an opportunity to dress them up nicely with my Kay Bojesen Wooden Dog and my Urban Outfitters candle.
Our interior design is a huge mix of Scandinavian minimalism with pieces from Kay Bojesen, Hoptimist, and Ferm Living. And then some more eclectic pieces like the many colored art books from David Hockney, Matisse, and Valentino. And loads of plants (need more).
Can’t wait to finish this room. I love how it’s coming along!
