Colorful Brooklyn Apartment TourI hope you’ve had a lovely summer! I know it’s been a bit quiet over here these past few months, but so much has been happening behind the scenes! In case you missed the news, Ryan and I moved in June. We’re still in Brooklyn, just in a new apartment and neighborhood. Now that I’m unpacking everything (yes I’m still unpacking), I realized I never shared a tour of our previous place. So without further delay, and truly before I forget again, here’s a look at the apartment we spent the past three years in! All sources for items are linked at the bottom– let me know if I missed anything!

Living Room

Colorful Brooklyn Apartment TourThe floor plan for the apartment was all open, so the living room + work area + kitchen were the same room. The apartment was about 650 Sq ft so it was this main room, our bedroom, and a bathroom. For the gallery wall, I decided to fill the entire wall with art since it was one of the only walls in the space that could hold that much art.

See how I made our TV Gallery Wall here!

5 Ways to Add Color to Any BedroomFor my favorite room in the apartment– the bedroom! Maybe it’s that rug that I’m forever obsessed with, or how the colors came together, but this is one of my favorite spaces that I’ve ever designed.

For the bedroom I love this mix of warm and cool colors to create balance in the space.  If you’re looking to make your space brighter, I rounded up some of my go-to tips for adding color to your bedroom.

 A project that I still love, and was one of the bigger DIYS that I’ve done, is this Ikea Dresser Makeover! It’s held up over the few years and is with us in the new space too.

Work Area

Colorful Brooklyn Apartment TourWhile I’m in love with our DIY Mounted Wall Desk, it sadly didn’t come with us to the new apartment. It’s still a project I highly recommend, but I am excited to have my own work space!  Ryan and I worked side by side for over a year and it’s more than time to spread out a little.

The rest of the kitchen was white and grey except for some counter accents like my pink kitchen aid mixer. I never fully got around to doing anything else to the space before we moved out!

Colorful Brooklyn Apartment TourSo that’s it! It was such a lovely apartment, but I can’t wait for you to see the new place we’re in. I’ll be sharing the photos for that tomorrow so be sure to circle back to see inside and to hear my plans for what’s to come!
