Apartment Haul 2019: West Elm (Contemporary + Modern)

Hellloooo, 2019! Kicking off the new year with a huge West Elm apartment haul! Living in the city this past year has definitely influenced my overall style. From fashion to home design, I have come to love and appreciate the contemporary, sleek aesthetics.

I remember when I was in college, I always wanted to have a city apartment full of West Elm decor. Fast forward a few years and this vision came to life! West Elm was the natural choice for me to go with when it came to decorating my urban home. I love the endless options of elegant and sophisticated furniture pieces that they carry. In addition, they also offer a wide range of handcrafted items which adds personal and unique touches to a home.

I hope you all enjoy this modern apartment haul! All the items in my video are linked below. Please keep in mind that a certain style/color might be unavailable at this time, but could be restocked in the future. Also, I included a link to the full tour of my high rise city apartment so you guys can see these products in action! As always, thanks for stopping by! ~b

High Rise Studio Apartment Tour / City Living

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!
