I absolutely love cooking, so having an open plan kitchen was very important to me so I could chat to Alex or guests while being in the kitchen. Being Australian, be absolutely LOVE our coffee. This Delonghi coffee machine was an investment, but in our eyes is so worth it. It makes the best coffees (both iced in summer, and hot in winter!) and the best thing about it is that I no longer have to spend $6 on an average latte in NYC ever again!
As mentioned before, we love having dinner parties so having enough space in our apartment to host friends was a must. I know it’s SO rare to be able to have a dining table in the city, so the fact that we have enough space to fit 4 at the dining table is a huge plus for us!
I recently picked up some new decor items from H&M Home (the best), including these new plates which I love!
Welcome to our living room! I absolutely love this area in our apartment. It’s the perfect set up for us to relax and watch movies (or Alex to play Playstation – ha!). We recently updated this area from old IKEA furniture to some newer more grown up pieces and I think it really made the room feel more sophisticated. We’ve had this print from St Frank textiles since we first moved to NYC and I still adore it. It’s set in a lucite frame which makes it look so edgy.
Our sofa is from Article and it’s really held up well. We actually are getting a new one in a couple of weeks though as I really want a white couch, but still love the way that this one looks!
For our media area, I really wanted a console where I could place 2 narrow shelves either side to help frame the TV. I think these work really well in the space, and they’re so fun to style with books and other decorative objects! They also go perfectly with the black hardware of our media console which I love so much.
We’ve been meaning to mount the TV but haven’t gotten around to it yet – honestly it doesn’t really bother me!
This is the room where I spend most of my time, as I use my vanity area as a desk, and also the fact that Alex has taken over the living room to play COD (hence the two TV’s!). I absolutely love my little desk/vanity set up – it’s definitely a bit more feminine than our living room but I still think it fits well with the overall vibe of the apartment.
