I’m so excited to start sharing different rooms, the very few, within my apartment which I just adore. Over the next few posts, I will give you a walk-through of my favorite spots in my 1 bed, 1 bath, 850-square foot Hamilton Heights gem, my humble abode. We did one walk-through of the occupied apartment and immediately fell head-over-heels for it (you’ll see why in the photos)! After a long, and expensive process (Broker fees in NYC are ridiculous), it was finally ours, our first “home” together.
I just had so many ideas to decorate each room, which is a true passion of mine. I’d say the style of my interior decor choice is very modern, feminine and clean mixing vintage pieces in a modern setting and color scheme.
One thing Wayne (my very handsome, loving and supportive boyfriend of almost 4 years) and I love to do in our home is host dinner parties with our closest friends. What’s a dinner party without a dining room? Yes, in NYC, we finally had a dining room which fits a table, chairs and bar cart! This place is actually heaven!
The round dining room table we purchased off of Craigslist, it’s Ikea Ingatorp that can expand to seat 6, for only $40!
These gorgeous tufted dining chairs, I purchased from Target in “Glacier”. They come as a pair. You’ll see from my other furniture choices that I love the elegant, tufted look in my pieces. My recommendation is to wait until Target has a sale to purchase these before buying them full price. Also, if you have a Target card, you get 5% off every purchase!
The soft rug was purchased from Wayfair. I highly recommend checking this site out for quality products at a low rate. I was a little hesitant about the rug because it ended up being the exact diameters of the table and chairs, but honestly I just love the colors in the rug and it helps the room decor flow nicely between the dining and living room.
The vintage, gold bar cart was another steal from Target. I got it a few years ago during a Black Friday sale and Wayne absolutely loves it. He has a knack for crafting cocktails for our guests and it’s so fun experimenting with the different liquors and flavor combinations. A few other options: Houzz Bar Cart, Vintage Bar Cart with Bottle Holder, and World Market Bar Cart.
Some other sites that I usually find good deals on furniture and home accessories are: World Market, Joss & Main, One Kings Lane, Christmas Tree Shops, Houzz and last but not least, Home Goods!
Thank you for stopping by and I’m so excited to keep sharing my lovely apartment with you!
