The apartment itself was an adjustment for us both. It's very "vintage", which in Chicago terminology means that it has countless quirks to get used to. It's been a fixer-upper to say the least, but now that things are starting to come together, we've begun to see the quirks as endearing.
While it's still very much a work in progress, I thought I'd share some little details from around here. It's so fun to see the apartment start to come alive with our personalities!
|The best combination for any room? Candles + flowers.|
|Old soda carriers line our kitchen cabinets to add a unique twist to the mundane wood.|
|I think "organized chaos" in kitchens is both livable and stylish.|
|Our living room is taking on an "adventure" theme.|
|You know I love my mason jars.|
|Our Ikea lamp is industrial-looking and adds a modern twist to the office.|
|Wine bottles as vases - yes, please!|
|Our bedroom is tiny, and there's not room for a nightstand, so we improvised with same-colored books.|
