The Very First Apartment


I know, I know. Bright color is not really where I'm going with this apartment... its supposed to be all about saying a relaxing "aaaaaaahhhhh" when I walk in the door. I do love that color combo though, so I have to think about it.

You're adorable about the napkin rings! I love that you made your own set out of C&B's collection. Brilliant. Nick and I got these birch tree ones as a wedding gift and I love using them!

Love the skirt and the shades, too! I completely forgot to add my aviators to my winter must-have list!

So girl, what are you up to this weekend? Tomorrow night my little cousin is having us over for drinks at her very first apartment. I'm so excited to see it and I just keep thinking back to our first place with Dukester! The accidentally circus-themed "living room" (aka foyer) had its moments, and I sometimes wonder if we had any idea how lucky we were at that place! I mean, the building had a POOL!!? And can we have a moment of silence for the Billy Bookcases and primary-colored striped pillows...? RIP.

Anyways, I'd like to buy lil' cousin a cool apartment warming gift. Here are some of my ideas:

  • A set of Mini Latte Bowls from Anthropologie. Something small/basic, but I gotta say, I love these! I've got 'em all over my apartment and use them to hold jewelry, hair elastics, and sometimes dark chocolate Hershey kisses.
  • I could go with my all time favorite housewarming gift--a new magazine subscription. In this case, its gotta be NY Mag! In fact, the Approval Matrix is something I believe everyone should have as a part of their day-to-day life!

What's your vote? Forget it all and get a jug o' wine instead? (Um, Carlo Rossi has a website? And a Facebook page? Hmmmm)

Hopefully after drinks I can convince Nick to have dinner nearby at S'mac! YUM.

Hope its a nostalgic, comfort food-filled weekend for you, too!
