Interior Designer Dee Murphy Nails an NYC Apartment Redesign











If you live in New York City, you know finding a spacious apartment is next to impossible. If we break down the neighborhoods, the Upper East or Upper West neighborhoods have the highest odds for you finding a “large” 1-2 bedroom apartments. Then comes Murray Hill, Gramercy, USQ, etc. West Village is one of the best neighborhoods to live in from a convenience, restaurant and tree-lined street perspective, however, space is SO hard to come by in this popular neighborhood. So when I came across this beautifully renovated 1-bedroom designed by Dee Murphy on Lonny located in the West Village, I couldn’t believe apartments like this actually exist in the West Village! Ok, maybe I’m over exaggerating a little – but seriously, finding a gem of an apartment like this in the West Village is very hard to come by.

What I love most about this apartment is how creative both Dee and home owner Lindsay Ulrey were when it came to maximizing space. Insert the custom built in for Lindsay’s shoes in her bedroom, the bright white built ins in the living room, and the mini dinning room table with vintage leopard chairs situated perfectly in the corner of the living room. For the entire NYC apartment home tour, head on over to Lonny.com! TGIF, friends!!

Ladies!! Are we friends on Pinterest yet?!?! I have really been getting back into my Pinterest groove as of late so I’m feeling inspired. Below are my top pinned images this week! They’re too pretty not to share… right?

White hydrangeas will never go out of style and if you’re a blogger, they make the perfect accessory for any blog shoot!


Grouping blue and white porcelain jars are a great way to make a statement in any room. Not to mention they are just plain pretty.


Have you guys seen Katie Kime’s gorgeous closet? In case you missed it, I shared her entire Austin home tour last year on the blog. Take a peep right this way.


A navy and white stair runner? Yes, please.

Must-Have J.Crew Spring Arrivals


Have you guys seen J.Crew’s spring arrivals? They are SO good. I was browsing online this past weekend (naturally) because this spring weather has me in major shopping mode. From colorful shorts to scalloped tanks, J.Crew has nailed their spring collection. Now’s the time to pick up wardrobe staples like a light jean jacket or trench coat (I love the red!). Light spring sweaters are also a must for the this transition season – insert this white cable knit sweater, this navy ruffle sweater, or this bright red sweater that would look perfect with white jeans. There are several tops I’ve added to my shopping cart including this navy and white striped ruffle top (duh), this stripe long sleeve shirt (duh, again), this light blue popover, and this french blue tank – notice a trend here? One item I have on my wish list is this J.Crew collection navy lace button up – isn’t she pretty? Anywho, I’ve rounded up my top J.Crew Spring picks below. What do you have on your spring wish list?
