I fell in love with Blueprint magazine all over again this month when I saw this spread on making a "cozy" (in city jargon this means teensy--I learned that in SF!) 307 square foot apartment in NYC feel open, airy while also providing adequate storage. I love the colors, the style...everything.
I find that I enjoy a few different styles of home decor and the challenge is incorporating them. I feel like I'm stuck somewhere between Pottery Barn / Restoration Hardware & Design Public / West Elm. I'm considering selling my current kitchen chairs (from Target but made in Italy...go figure) and buying new ones in a more modern style. My sister did something similar in her Maryland home and it looks fabulous. Here is the kitchen table I own:
and the old chairs (which are definitely cute but I think I'm ready for a more modern look)
and the potentially new chairs!
Maybe next month...
