After walking for miles and having viewed over 20 apartments finally, late last week we signed a 12 month lease on a gorgeous one bedroom apartment in Greenwich Village which we move into this Friday.
We are really excited about moving out of our temporary accommodation and exploring Greenwich Village but the thing we are most excited about is decorating our new place. Since we didn’t ship any of our furniture to the US, we are starting from scratch and the prospect of being able to buy all new/second-hand furniture and actually like every single piece is truly exciting.
Lucky for me, one of my favourite websites, Apartment Therapy had a great article on decorating your first place. Although technically this isn’t our first place* the article has some good tips and reminders on decorating.
So in our quest to decorate our apartment (on a budget) we are scouring the flea markets in NYC and are taking some unwanted furniture from friends. I want to make the space warm and fun since its only small and although the article says not to use inspiration boards here are some pictures I am drawing inspiration from.
*We never got to decorate our place in Sydney since we were going through renovations.
