the apartment | design

i take little credit for the design; it's all lea and her mad design skills. but she got me and what i like:
- white
- clean surfaces
- minimal clutter
- low budget

working within the unit i picked out
- tall, exposed concrete ceilings
- light floors, cabinets, and countertops
- floor to ceiling windows and LOTS OF NATURAL LIGHT


p.s. listen to this while browsing!

i keep piles of books and journals (yes, i have more than 1) on the floor by my bed, lamp from target and crystal from lollia perfume, also very obsessed with perfume (particularly chanel)
all white bedding from ikea and 1 old timey lacey pillow sham
table from a friend, eventually want to recover the chairs, 3 around the table pushed up against the window and one by the bookcase against the wall (will pull out table and add extra chair if having a dinner)
greens! my recent favorite find from my last trip to NYC, and photo of snowy atlanta taken by a friend
eiffel tower salt&pepper shakers, souvenir lion's head from the national cathedral in d.c., books from wherever
more books, baskets from ikea on the bottom shelves hiding the DVDs and clutter
