apartment update // life lately

We have officially been in our apartment for a month, and I realized haven't shared many updates. If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen a few posts (#apt8design) but today I though we could catch everyone up to speed. 

Above you can see two different views of the corner of our living room. We ended up going with a sectional couch and it has already become the most coveted seat in the house. And I got my fiddle fig tree. We named him Bill. His basket is from Target and the pillow is from Furbish.

And for the record, those amazing lamps are from Target too. I couldn't believe it when I saw them, because I have been coveting some much more expensive versions. I was afraid they would be flimsy, but nope! They are absolutely perfect and the height is adjustable. I'm in love. 

Some mild rewiring was required to install this discontinued Pottery Barn phone that I scored on eBay. I was overly proud of the rewiring success, although somehow I managed to knock a diamond out of my wedding band in the process….oops. If you like the phone, and are in the one percent of people that need a landline, they still sell the desk version.

As I discussed here, we have been working on a gallery wall for the entry hall. Here you can see the original proposal, and what we ended up actually hanging. We still need to paint and switch out the light fixtures. I really appreciated everyone's feedback on the walls. I will definitely get a laser level!

A pretty peek at the coffee table, and the beginnings of an art project.

On the left you can see we repurposed our Jonathan Adler couch from our old living room into our new dining nook. The art is by Donald Robertson, and the pillows are from Furbish. Now we just need a table... On the right, a fabric situation we have going in the living room. The tiny strip is from the curtains that are currently being made.

Also. We got a super giant mirror that is dangerously perfect for selfies. I apologize in advance. Seriously though, the mirror is from Homegoods. Did you know the Upper West Side store will deliver anywhere in Manhattan for $14? Actually, this mirror was "a two man job" so it cost a whopping $34. That's basically as much as it costs to take a cab there. #dealofthecentury

So, whatcha think? How much of this decorating are you interested in seeing?
