Greetings from New York! It wasn’t easy but Blake, Lola and I have made our way to the big city. We arrived on Sunday morning, after a day of scrambling to pack and a quick red eye, to find our new apartment just as delightful as we’d remembered it. Only empty! And so that’s where the fun began…

We majorly lucked out finding a place in Chelsea that happens to be steps away from a number of furniture stores. The past two days have been spent running around town shopping, and today won’t be any different! We’re quickly turning our empty nest into a sparingly furnished little spot, and it’s so exciting!

Couch, check! Mattress and bed, check! Coffee table, check! Today I am on a mission to get a desk and a sweet rug…then we’ll be in pretty good shape. Any recommendations for spots to check out?

On an unrelated note, if you are a blogger who’ll be in NYC during Fashion Week, come check out the Lulus.com Style Studio event at Openhouse Gallery on Friday! Just click here to RSVP.

    Furniture can be a product of design and is considered a form of decorative art. In addition to furniture’s functional role, it can serve a symbolic or religious purpose. It can be made from many materials, including metal, plastic, and wood. Furniture can be made using a variety of woodworking joints which often reflect the local culture.-.

    Welcome to the neighborhood! There are lots of furniture places, like white on white on 26th and west elm on 17th. The TJ MAXX on 6th ave you should hit up also, bc it a has not just a great clothing selection, and a great kitchen section if you need that kind of stuff. Definitely also hit CB2 downtown. Enjoy! Even after a couple years living in Chelsea, I keep finding new reasons I love it. Good luck in your new place!

    Fun! That’s the best part about a new apartment – getting to decorate it with new stuff and put your stamp on it and just make it your own. Ps, love those leopard pants! I just got a grey pair, but I love the white!

    Great pants.
    Do you know how you are going to style the apt yet??

    Laura Reply:

    Thanks!! We’re just kind of taking it a few pieces at a time. Sorta modern, but not too modern, I guess. With a few pops of color, of course! Will share pics soon! x
