I Long for Apartment Living

Somedays, I really miss apartment living. There's public transportation (love taking the bus), quick trips to the grocery store via walking (miss doing that the most), impromptu get-togethers with friends, and the most obvious (since I write a home decor blog) is a smaller space to furnish. Somehow, filling our townhouse with furniture and decorative accessories has been an ongoing process, and while I absolutely love our house, I wish it was furnished with the main pieces already!

Smaller spaces seem to be so much easier to fill (and cheaper) and have a innate coziness to them that a large house just doesn't easily attain. And don't get me started on the charming architectural details that you only find in older buildings. Crown molding, high ceilings, little nooks & crannies, and classic layouts are what get me going. But it's the overall way of city living that I miss and hopefully one day I'll be able to enjoy it once more. Miss you DC!

It's all in the wallpaper.

The way the plates are arranged add such charm to a very dated kitchen.

If I was a bachelor, this would be my dream bathroom. Masculine, sexy, and polished.

The way this room is setup and decorated is perfection.

A great way to showcase (and conceal) your boudoir.

Having your essentials be a part of the decor is absolutely brilliant.
