home sweet apartment!

home sweet apartment!

In case you missed it, last week we bought our first apartment! It’s only small and nothing like these gorgeous Luxury High Rise Apartments in Downtown New Brunswick NJ that we can only dream of one day being able to purchase, but honestly right now we couldn’t be happier! This first week in our new apartment has been so fun as we’ve gotten all unpacked and decorated a little bit… it’s starting to feel like home! We’re definitely not ready to even start to think about a remodel but, if we ever do, we know that there are helpful professionals out there, like Thomas Buckborough & Associates, who would be able to come and transform the rooms into something incredible. But, for the time being, we’re perfectly happy with what we have. I absolutely love coming in to the smell of the hardwood floors, the california sun coming through the windows, the sound of the trolley outside, the nicest breeze, & of course my cute hubby. Some friends of ours are planning on buying a condo with One Pearl Bank over in Singapore – I can’t wait to compare decorating tips with them over Skype once they finally move in! We’re really happy for them as there’s so much going on out there in the world of real estate. If you’re tempted by a move to Singapore, take a look at these pricing models. As for us, we are still working on a few things, but here are some pictures of how it’s coming along!


i love these cannisters & am so happy
that they match the kitchen perfectly!

coming along…thanks husband for finding a way
to hang the fork and spoon on our wall!

our cute kitchen makes me love cooking even more

it’s so nice to finally be able to use all of our
wedding presents, including our blendtec!

this shelf singlehandedly holds our rice cooker, waffle iron,
panini press, crock pot, crepe maker, and egg maker…impressive
entry to the kitchen…we’re ordering a
cute little high dining top table to go here!
found a good place for our crate&barrel clock..thanks minds!

we love these windows and the pretty
light that comes through them!
useful little nook in the hallway
we’re obviously still unpacking the living room…
we are getting a desk and something to mount the TV on,
so for now it is a little unorganized but that’s okay!
love that chase’s boutonniere from our
wedding decorates our light switch
shower curtain- thanks to shelley for the fabric
bathroom wall
more bathroom…thanks anna & rand for our favorite towels!
the must-have toothbrush holder from pottery barn
our bedroom…always wanted an all-white feel
love this handmade pillow we can flip around with
our initials or our wedding date. {ordered here on etsy}
my walk in closet…hah still unpacking this too!
chase’s closet..much more organized
can’t get enough of our windows and the breeze
all of our little decorations make it feel
so much more like home
we still need a furniture piece for the tv, so for now
chase has to watch it like this…ha
and of course we are repping our utes in CA!
