Apartment Redesign

Oh the joys of moving. Yeah right- we’re living amongst boxes and out of suitcases as we pack up 5 years of joy in our walk-up. Time to move on though- our beautiful, sleek, grown up digs are just 10 blocks from what we’ve called home. It’ll be bittersweet to leave though, wouldn’t’ be surprised if I even cry. I’ll be sure to blame the hormones.

Anyway, of course we parlayed the move into a new design project. Rethinking paint colors and accent colors and finally what to do with the nursery!  Been busy with this lately and wanted to finally share what’s going to happen.

Master BR:

Going with a charcoal grey wall a la Jenna Lyons’ Brooklyn home.

We own a greyish beige bed with nailheads- which I love and we’re doing a lighter gray (lighter than this color) duvet

with these sheets:

these shams

and these nightstands

the dresser i want is this one:

now just to find a light grey rug that will work.  hmmmm.

Living Room!

This gray is actually much lighter- it’s a very soft gray. Lovely and much lighter than what we’ve had in our living room

our new couch!!

and chair and a half!

which will sit across our cute white chairs, and rug, coffee table and yellow lamp.  (as seen in current apt photo):

Here’s a shot of our pillows:

done in Thom Filicia’s fabric, which I’m doing curtains in:

Dining Room is still a work in progress, but here is the table i’m leaning towards. You can’t see it but it’s rubbed gray (so not as brown as it appears) and comes with a leaf to extend this baby.

Dining Chairs I change my mind on all the time. I want upholstered but how feasible is that with a baby?!  So I think I’ll end up with the matching ones from C&B.

Alas, the baby room. Here are my inspiration photos. Since we’re not finding out the gender, we’re going to do all navy and white and then get accents in orange for a boy or hot pink for a girl.   For the navy, we’re painting in Benjamin Moore’s “Old Navy."  Now this is fun!

I’ll send an update as this progresses!
