Moving On Over

Today my husband and I sign a lease for a new apartment and we couldn't be more excited. While we love our little Beacon Hill neighborhood, it is time for more space which meant searching other sections of our beloved Boston. Ultimately we decided to have something similar to our temporary apartment in NYC in a full service building located in the Back Bay area. While we lose the quaint charm of the hill we gain so many luxuries which include large floor to ceiling windows, our own closets and so much more square footage to just name a few. Since I have never ever decorated a home before, I am ready to flex my interior decorating skills and make our urban apartment a warm welcoming home. First up is the kitchen redecorating. After a little shopping yesterday afternoon, we have agreed on the changes and look below that fits the modern space but keeps it simple for our little dining nook.

Before

Everything will be painted white for a bright clean aesthetic as well as some new wood floors that have a wider plank and a gray oak finish. Art will be removed to keep the space open and uncluttered.



Fiddle leaf plant will be finding it's home in the right corner for a pop of color. 


Our desired look

  1. Ooo I love decorating! My boyfriend and I are starting to prep for me to move in over the coming months and I am itching to freshen up the space. First I have to create closet space, replace the wire hangers, and rearrange some books. But then I'm all about paint, a new area rug, and some fresh sheets! Can't wait to see how your new space comes together!!

    1. Congrats Ellie on that exciting transition, such a happy time...I also moved into John's place & it was all his things {luckily he had good style on the interior design front}. Love the little details like you mentioned to ease your way into his place without him feeling like your taking over ; ) p.s. I hate wire hangers too!
