My NYC Apartment Pt. 2

West Village, NY

A few more shots of my old West Village, NYC apartment… Painting my bedroom black was a huge risk and I went back and forth about it for weeks, but luckily Becca convinced me and I ended up LOVING it!  It really made the extremely small bedroom feel more luxe and sophisticated.  When it came to the dining nook, I knew I didn’t want to do anything conventional so I mixed up my chairs and did a custom wingback from Society Social and wicker chairs from Williams Sonoma.  I collected various sizes of blue ginger jars and placed floral arrangements from BloomBar in them.  I sprinkled fashion coffee table books throughout the space along with perfume, candles and souvenirs from my travels.  The artwork was a combination of magazine and coffee table book cutouts (it’s all about getting creative!), and pieces from One Kings Lane.  As I mentioned in my first apartment post, I utilized every inch of the 650 square foot space with a rolling rack, baskets, and shoe boxes for storage.  The apartment was a mix of classic and eclectic with a nod to the charm of the West Village.  Head over to this post and this post to see more!

    Did you do all four walls black or just an accent? I love a good moody navy too!

    Did you paint your front door black or was it already painted black? I’m debating whether to do the same in my apartment!

    You made great use of such a small space! Love all the accents. And the black walls were definitely a risk but I love the way it turned out!

    Love the black paint! I also have a teensy New York space and didn’t realize paint could make such a big difference. Do you mind sharing the brand & shade name? Thanks :)

    So gorgeous! Love all the neutrals. I have been looking for a black & white photograph that’s as joyful as the one you have with the woman in the vintage bathing suit. Do you mind sharing the source for that?

    I adore all the artwork in your apartment. I’d love to know where you found the one of the woman in the white bathing suit jumping/leaping. The movement and black & white photo is just so joyful!
