My apartment is great, and I feel lucky to have the space we have, but there is one eyesore I can’t get past. We have a large AC unit on our TV wall and I don’t think I can stand looking at it anymore! I’ve never been an indoor plant person (with the exception of my beloved terrarium air plant) but fiddle leaf fig trees are so commonly used in interiors these days, I’m considering giving it a try. Who needs a puppy when you can have a fiddle who, research shows, can require just as much maintenance. These apartment photos are quick photoshop doodads, just to help me get an idea of the effect.

Hatch Show Print picked up on a fun trip to Nashville
Randolph Street Market flea
Some of my favorite items found and received along the way
Re-post from The Zoe Report. An inspiring woman with an inspiring message.
I’ve been in Chicago for six weeks now and I just spent my first weekend in the city since moving here – with weddings, graduations and weekends away with friends, it was nice to finally wake up in my bed with nowhere to be. We spent the weekend making the apartment feel like home and filling it with memories, visiting the local flea, and seeing friends. I’ve started a “to eat” list and it grows daily. This city loves to eat, making me feel right at home.

Happy Friday! A few of my favorite pieces. A great way to break up wall-to-wall carpet common in rentals is to lay a cow hide over the carpet to accent the area around the sofa.

I’ve been a fan of Blu Dot for a while, especially these chairs, which my friend introduced me to. While Blu Dot is already well priced for the unique quality and artful form of its pieces, Target has a line, TOO by Blu Dot (find it here) that is even more affordable, so that good design can truly be possessed by all. This is something I am always in support of and love finding affordable options like these. So take a look around and maybe you’ll welcome a modern moment into your home!
This new sisal rug from Crate & Barrel has completely transformed our living room, bringing in light and really making the room feel alive. Our previous rug, a dark red oriental rug was pretty, but it really weighed down the room. Next on my list is a new swing arm wall sconce and a new coffee table. Some ideas below….
Sconces: 1 . 2 . 3 . 4
Coffee Tables: 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 5 . 6 . 7 . 8 . 9
