[Above: This is my bedroom. The mantle was painted gold before I moved into the apartment and has inspired me to add to the gold accents. For the most part, I like to keep my room really simple.]
This is my living room. I totally lucked out when I moved in because my upstairs neighbor gave me her old furniture – the dresser with the mirror and the coffee table. The couch is a thrift-store find for $30! I used it for a bed the first year I moved to NY. These shots really show the railroad style of the apartment as well as my make-shift room, which is really not a room at all. My “room” was formed after I got the shelving system (also from my upstairs neighbor). It’s nice having a bar area too.
Another Living room shot. Cheryl’s mom made the woven paintings over the couch. The pillow was a thrift store find. I usually don’t by pillows from thrift stores, but I couldn’t resist with this one. The palm is a Kentia palm, one of the few palms that can take low light. I love using big plants to soften corners in rooms.
This is the 2nd living room looking into my roommate Cheryl’s room. The painting was done by her friend Marilyn. . . We got to choose the kitchen color when we moved in. I love this light green which reminds me of a 50’s style kitchen. The table I got at a yard sale for $40.
My bedroom. The wall sculpture on the right was made by Cindy Loehr the garden designer at Sprout Home Brooklyn. My favorite part about my room is having a window next to my bed. It looks out into the backyard and some great birdwatching.
This is my roommate Cheryl’s room. I think it speaks for itself. She’s pretty cool.
