Move On Over - Part Two

Remember when I shared that we were moving into this apartment at the end of the summer. Well after lots of thought and consideration our plans changed and we desired some more space then that apartment could give us. So yet again we found ourselves looking in the brutal Boston real estate market for a new place to live. Then one night at dinner I quickly browsed some online listings and I  spotted the below beauty. I quickly called my broker who got us in the next day and the second we walked in, I completely lost my poker face and gushed over every corner of the home. We both instantly knew it would be a wonderful place to live and after about two minutes of seeing we moved quickly to secure the space to be ours. Once the lease was signed last week my sweet guy put the icing on the cake by photoshopping in a piece of art he purchased for us and a sweet pup that we hope to add to our family in the fall.  Since this home is a lot more traditional then the original apartment we picked, we are steering away from the mid-century modern aesthetic and sticking with classic pieces in soft colors of gray and ivory. We are keeping that dining set, but losing the counter stools and replacing the stools with these. Since the main living area doesn't need a lot of work, I will be focusing on the empty guest room down the hall. I am beyond excited to host family and friends!


I love the idea of a day bed in a small room. It will act as a couch during the day and easily turn into a comfy bed for guests visiting at night. Since the color palette we are choosing is muted I look forward to adding some color through the artwork thanks to my lovely friends assistance and keeping the decor simple and clean. I may even order this day bed with a trundle for sleepovers with my four beautiful nieces can visit!
