High Rise Empty One Bedroom Apartment Tour

We moved!

…well kind of! 🙂 At the end of October this year, my boyfriend and I transferred out of our studio into a one-bedroom apartment. It’s situated in the same high rise complex so there are various similarities in the two different floorplans. You can check out the empty studio here.

Since I love documenting the places that I have lived – I had to share this mini-tour of our “new” home with you all! Our current space is approximately 678 sq. ft. with a base rent of $1407 – which is actually a good deal as we are on a higher level. The one-bedroom is very much modern and what you would expect out of an urban luxury apartment. There’s hardwood floors throughout, stainless steel appliances, breathtaking city views – just to name a few features!

In addition, our high rise building has some really great community amenities which really enforces the idea of living an elevated lifestyle.  From a rooftop pool to a sophisticated club lounge, I highlight some of these areas in the second half of my video.

All in all, I really hope you enjoy today’s empty home tour post! This month, I also leased another luxury apartment in the city and I am super excited to share that with you all as well – so stay tuned! As always, I appreciate you taking the time to watch my videos or read my blog. Y’all are the best! ~b

Micro Studio Tour / Apartment in the City / 240 sq. ft. (Updated!)

You’d be surprised by how much can fit into a 240 sq ft. micro studio that is smartly designed. My older brother, Nick, has been living in his city apartment for the past four years. His building was once a historic hotel turned apartment complex. Though an incredibly small space, he was able to transform it into a cozy home by being creative and resourceful.

Nick, a former architecture student, was able to use his skills and background to craft a blueprint with various functions and flow. If you watched his original apartment tour a few years back, then you would know the general layout to his room is very much the same. However, he did make some new noteworthy modifications to enhance his space that were worth sharing. He recently bought a 55 inch OLED TV, added a hammock, and wall-mounted his bike. My new YouTube video highlights how he integrates these changes and continues to optimize every square footage of his home.

For most people, small spaces can make one feel boxed in, but for Nick – his life is not confined by the four walls of his micro-studio. In fact, living simple and minimal did the opposite. It opened up doors for him, giving him the freedom to travel. Due to the low cost of rent, he was able to save money and go on countless adventures. Last year, he accomplished one of his biggest goals which was to visit 30 countries by age 30. Next, he plans to visit all fifty states and seven continents. You can follow Nick on Instagram at @bu1ster to see some of his stunning travel photos! 

 As always, I appreciate you stopping by and watching my videos. I hope it helps spark design inspiration in your life! ~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!
