Apartment Therapy


For the entire calendar year, I've been obsessed with this bedding, but I just couldn't bring myself to make the investment. So, I poured over the internet (read: Pinterest) in hopes of finding a more affordable knock off. Like searching for an exercise routine that I might actually enjoy, my efforts were hopeless. Finally, I couldn't bear it any more. The sheets were the last "must have"item on my list of apartment necessities, so I bit the bullet and bought them. My patience paid off with a 20% off sale, so ya know, I only kind of felt robbed. But then they arrived, and I washed them, and then slept on them, and then I felt like the richest girl in the worlddddd!!! And then I was reminded that not only had I not updated my blog in over a week (new job...what can I say?), but I hadn't yet shared the new abode I've been living in sin with Kyle in since last fall. So here you are.
{Yes, that is Fifty Shades of Grey on my nightstand. I haven't cracked it open yet because I'm scared.}
{The sofa I originally told you about last summer.}
{I scored this amazing rug on Gilt Group months ago.}
{It took Kyle and I  a few months to agree on a coffee table, but I think this one was worth the wait.}
{In other discount-luxury-goods-websites, I finally found the solution to our
mail problem on One Kings Lane with this adorable gold and pink bin.}
{We lucked out with an amazing patio, a rarity in these parts, so we had to have a patio dining set.
We've been eating dinner out here most nights ever since we got this.}

Love your place! So chic and stylish (not that I expected anything less). I'm looking for some bedding for a project I am working on, and this may be just the ticket. Also, please post some sort of review/opinion about "50 Shades of Grey," mostly because I feel your POV on this will be hilarious!

I'm about half way through the second one, and yes the first one IS scary but for some reason I couldn't put it down!

Your place looks so adorably decorated!

XO,

Love your rug. I'd forgotten about the guilt groupe. Thanks!

So pretty! So much light! I love it.

Francia said...

also, forgot to mention that I read 50 shade of grey. Little did I know when I bought this book that it definitely qualifies under the erotic romance section.

Gayla said...

Very pretty. I love what you've done with the place!

Hodge Podge said...

I had the same thought a month ago. Then I told myself, "You sleep a third of your life-- buy the damn sheets." Nice place!

Erica [pocket full of chuckles] said...

Stephanie said...
