My Dining Room Inspo & Plan

My Dining Room Inspo & Plan

One of the things I was most excited about when we moved into our new house was having our own dining room. At our old apartment we ended up selling our dining room furniture and turning that space into Eddie's desk area/the entryway. Truth is, we hardly ever used the space when it was a dining room- and when you're living in 700 square feet you really need to utilize every inch available. We ate almost all our meals in the living room or at the kitchen brekky bar - the dining table just felt too formal for Eddie and I! But now that we're a little older, I've been thinking about how fun it would be to have a proper dining room. I'd love to have our friends over for brunches & dinner parties! (Not that being table-less stopped us from that before - don't forget about our annual Friendsgivings on the floor hehe) I'm pretty sure Eddie and I will still eat most of our dinners together at the coffee table watching TV, but I am super excited to design our new offish dining area. I wanted to share some gorge rooms that have been giving me major inspo, and also tell you my plan for the space. Keep scrolling for my product mood board at the bottom!

Walking in a Cactus Wonderland

Walking in a Cactus Wonderland

Get used to this magical cacti land, because you're going to be seeing a lot of it from now on! A couple months ago I didn't even know South Coast Botanic Garden existed, now I'm an annual member and plan on visiting/photographing it v regularly. Seriously, it's botanical heaven here. And right in Los Angeles! Palos Verdes to be exact. There are all different types of gardens here, but the Desert Garden is my fave. Cacti, euphorbia, aloes, and other succulent bbs of all shapes and sizes. Take a walk with me through this prickly dream land.

LA to NY Style

LA to NY Style

I usually travel to my home state of New York twice a year to visit family and friends, but this last trip was my first winter visit in a while! I hate the cold so I try and avoid those harsh winter months. Living in Los Angeles has spoiled me with the year round beautiful weather, but one of my good friends got married in NY on St. Patrick's day and I def couldn't miss it. I thought it would be fun to show you how I transition outfits from LA to NY, so I partnered up with MATTER to style one of their gorge outfits two ways.

Studio Dreams in Brooklyn

Studio Dreams in Brooklyn

The moment I saw a pic of this darling Williamsburg studio on Airbnb, I knew I HAD to stay here. That exposed brick wall! The huge window! Those market lights! Hello dreamville. Not to mention the super fun touch of a projector instead of a TV, and also the drop dead gorge city views from the rooftop. Needless to say, I hit the "book" button reaaal quick.

The Most Instagramable Shops in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

The Most Instagramable Shops in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Just got back from a short trip to New York for a friend's wedding! Every time I visit my hometown in the Hudson Valley, I try to also visit NYC as it's only an hour and a half drive. Brooklyn is my fave place in the city, so much charm and magic. I just love the vibe and how everything is so walkable - I walked from my Airbnb to each of these shops in just a few hours. Even though I froze my butt off, it was actually v nice to be able to leave the house without having to jump in a car to get to where I needed to go. Keep scrolling for some of the adorbs places I visited while staying in Williamsburg!

Before/After: Our Apartment

Before/After: Our Apartment

I don't know about you guys, but I love me some before/afters. I'm always so inspired to see how someone takes a bare, unattractive space and transforms it into something beautiful. I wanted to share with you some before/afters of our old apartment - but a backwards version! Since I don't have proper "before" pics from when we first moved in, I took a bunch of pics a couple weeks ago after we had moved all of our furniture out. So the "before" in this case is the space decorated, and the "after" is the empty room. Hope you enjoy!

My Boho Bedroom Inspo

My Boho Bedroom Inspo

We're slowly but surely settling into our new house! There are still a few boxes lying around, filled with things we're not quite sure where to put yet - but we're getting there. Our house is nothing like the old apartment, so there are a lot of things that don't quite fit/work in the new space. The dining room is empty since we don't have any furniture for it yet, so it's pretty much been a holding ground for all the stuff we're still deciding what to do with. The room we've come farthest along with so far is our bedroom - lil sneak peek of it in the pic above. We get such beautiful sunlight in this room thanks to 3 windows, I'm in love! We haven't hung any curtains yet (all our old apartment curtains are the wrong dimensions) and 3 of the 4 walls are completely bare, so we still have a ways to go. I want our new house to be a bit simpler than our old place though - less clutter, more calm. Keep scrolling to see some of the peaceful, gorge bedrooms that have been serving as my inspo lately.

Can't believe I'm celebrating my 7th Valentine's Day with Eddie, that curly head bb! We don't go cray on v-day, some years we've even just stayed at home and enjoyed a low-key dinner at our place. But we've been so busy with work and the move to our new house recently, we decided to enjoy a night out this year. I'm not sure where we're going, but Eddie made rezzies somewhere he says is "perfect", so I'm excited kakaka
