Hi guys! I am so excited to be able to share my completed high rise studio with you all!! This apartment was initially my boyfriend’s place, (you can see the empty tour here) however, fast forward about a year later and this quickly became our second home in the city!
As you can probably imagine, sharing a small space can be quite a challenge. Luckily, we had the opportunity to work with an amazing West Elm interior designer to help with the decorating process. She was able to create an open space layout with a sense of ebb and flow. So although it’s technically one room, it feels separated with distinct areas for various functions (sleep, eat, entertain, etc.)
When designing we opted for very simple but sophisticated furniture pieces. We are both are a big fan of contemporary aesthetics so we thought these modern pieces paired perfectly together. As a whole, they really elevate and craft a cohesive look within the space. (Pst..I’ll be sure to make an apartment haul video in the future featuring these items for you guys!). All in all, I absolutely love the transformation of our 585 sq. ft. studio. Now it looks and feels like a city chic apartment – there’s no other place I rather call home!

New Year, New Haul!
Hello friends! As promised, here’s a collective haul featuring furniture pieces for my boyfriend’s apartment. He has been living in his high rise studio for a few months now , but as you know – decorating a home is always a work in progress. While shopping, we sought after minimal modern designs that would help craft a contemporary space that was simple, practical, and stylish. We managed to get a lot of items on sale around the holidays due to the monsoon of promotions going on. However, please be aware that the listed prices in my video might not reflect the same price on the retailer’s website. Even so, all the furniture items are still very affordable and great pieces to consider if you are interested. As always, thanks again for stopping by. I’ll talk ya guys in my next blog post!

I also included a mock up picture that a talented interior designer created for our space. It was a fun experience and I am so appreciative for her help. However it is a more of a girly glam look which doesn’t fit our overall style.
I think it’s safe to say that I absolutely love love decorating. Adding new elements to my space always brings me great joy. It’s a constant passion project transforming my apartment into a home. Here are my latest finds….
Crosley X Urban Outfitters Record Player
Bohemian and classic, this vintage-inspired record player is my favorite addition to my home! I think the intricate mandala design is absolutely stunning!
Foldable Storage Bins
My new favorite way to organize! These neutral-toned foldable bins from Amazon are well made and quite sturdy. I packed mine with bed sheets and towels!
Elephant Ring Holder
Fact: Elephants are my favorite animals. I picked up this cute little guy for my night stand. Rose gold and polished – it added an extra dash of chic to my home.
Ikea Plastic Containers
Don’t let these inexpensive plastic containers fool ya! They are super durable and come in a variety of different sizes. Simple in design, they helped revamped my disorganized shelves into a clutter-free zone.
Mermaid Tail Blanket
Staying warm this winter can actually be fun? I saw this trending on Pinterest and thought they were simply adorable! Supppppeeer comfortable and cozy, you can binge watch up to 3 more extra hours of Netflix with this on. But is that really a surprise? 😉
Welp, that is all for this mini apartment haul. Thanks so much for stopping by! I have a bigger haul coming up – featuring items at my boyfriend’s place. Be sure to keep an eye out for that video/post! ~b
