We bought this print in Paris the day after we got engaged. My family dog ate half of it but we framed it anyway.

I’ve been spending more and more time decorating our home. Since we decided to stay in our current apartment for another whole year, I wanted to make it just feel more like a real home and less like a New York City rented apartment. It’s a challenge, trust me. I’ll share more photos as I go along, but here is a snap shot of what it’s looking like in a series of vignettes.

Gallery Wall

A new photo in our gallery, taken by my husband. Love print here.

Bow Chair

This bow chair was a Christmas present!


I love sticking wedding photos in unexpected places


My favorite winter candle and a beautiful bowl full of matches


My current favorite fruit


Our bar is filling up. Clearly we need to drink more.


I wear these slippers every minute that I’m home. Pottery Barn rug.

Living Room

This faux fur throw is getting me through the winter. Throw pillows here.

Cocktail Book

On Saturday I dove into a new coffee table book with a glass of whiskey


A floral platter belonged to my great-grandmother.

    It’s looking fantastic! I love vignettes. The Paris map is so cool. Before I read what you said about your dog eating it, I thought it was supposed to look like that! It adds a little vintage/”found” quality to it, so I’m glad you went ahead and framed it anyway. It all looks great!

      I’m glad that you thought it was supposed to be like that. I thought it looked pretty nifty too! Things with a story make for much better art.

    I’m entirely with Jackie about the map– definitely adds some character behind such a sweet story. And I love your little bowl of matchbooks! I’ve been collecting them recently, but really wish more restaurants had them like they used to! Ones gathered from traveling are the best :)
