As promised here is a peak inside our apartment. It has that San Francisco charm that I love so much and is so cozy and quaint. Here is a look at the new place we call home.
Kitchen: I love the white marble backslash. It is my favorite part of the kitchen. It is small but I love it because every inch of it is made so well and I have always dreamed of a white country kitchen. I’m also crazy about our open floor plan. I can watch TV while cooking or talk to my guests when I’m entertaining and it is so fun to look out at the dining room dining room to the left and see the city views from the window.
I’ve finally finished decorating the apartment and I am so proud of it! It’s the first time I have lived somewhere and had full control over decorating decisions. In San Diego I had roommates, in DC I had roommates and in LA I lived with my sister but in Dallas I live with my bf and he sorta let me take the reins.
Of course it’s not a house so you can’t really make it your own but decorating helps!
I took it one room at a time and worked slowly and I am so glad I did. When I finished one room and the excitement of seeing it completed wore off, I would get started on the next. It prolonged my enjoyment. Of course, the decorating is never really finished. I am always scouring Home Goods, antique stores, World Market and Pier 1 for more items. I just love making my home a nice place to be.
Below is my completed apartment!
This was easy to complete considering it is a beautiful kitchen to begin with. Dark mahogany wood, granite counters, green sub-way tile back-splash, dark wood floor…all it took was a few easy touches. A golden peacock feather serving-tray from India, a cookbook display (which is extremely useful), a spice rack and a few odd- and-ends. It is my favorite room in the house.
I spend half of my time at home in the kitchen. There is nothing I love more than pouring a glass of wine, opening up a Giada cookbook and making whatever looks good. But as an amateur chef, I must say my wish list of kitchen gadgets and odds-and-ends is extensive.
Below is my kitchen wish list and I can only hope my boyfriend is reading and taking note for future gift ideas 😉
Trust us: a collapsed souffle can and will be overlooked by guests, should these four gilded cuties be in plain sight, triumphantly scaling here-and-there mounds of sugar and flour. (Oh, you lovely disaster, you.) The most delightful hostess gift imaginable.
