Welcome to my Brooklyn, NYC, apartment. The decorating progress is slow, but I want to take time to find the right things that last and fit the new aesthetic. Not sure what I’m going for, but all I know is that I don’t want to make it look and feel like everything is from one store. It’s got a modern feel with brick walls, a balcony with lots of light in the morning.

As of right now, I’m still shopping for a sofa. I’ll most likely go for something at West Elm since I have a few gift cards from them. I also want to install a shelving system from Vitsoe, but it will have to wait after I decide on a sofa.
Floyd SOFA Sectional – 2-Seater with Left Side Chaise, color Off-white
Noguchi Akari A10 Lamp – I bought this lamp at the Noguchi Museum store, blog post HERE and Tik Tok video HERE. It’s said sold out online, but you might get lucky if you check it out at the museum store.
Open Spaces Entryway Rack – Color Cream
Diptyque Figuier/Fig Tree Candle – I have the Baies scent as well and love them both so much!
Caraway Cookware Set. Color Cream – Ceramic-coated non-stick. Set includes: frying pan, saucepan with lid, saute pan with lid, and dutch oven with lid, magnetic pan racks, canvas lid holder, and 2 round cork pan holders.
Simplehuman 35L dual Compartment Trash Can – great for a small apartment like mine since it fits under and inside my apartment’s tiny sink.
Organic Shaped Bowls – I have both of the 6″ and 8″.
Crate & Barrel glass – I have both, the 10 oz and 16 oz.
Umbra Sling Flexible Sponge Holder – I have the black one. Love that it’s not a suction cup style because those will get loosen in water.
Bendt Iron Square Basket – perfect to store root veggies, and it can fit a lot!
Mesh Colanders Set of 5
Le Creuset Gold Knob – If you bake sourdough bread at home using your Le Creuset pot, you’d need to either remove the knob. I’ve replaced the original one with this stainless steel gold knob, and it’s totally safe in the oven.
Le Creuset Round Dutch Oven 3 1/2 qt (3-4 serving). Color: Cerise.
Hario Brewing Coffee Bottle (to make cold brew or storing pre-made Chemex coffee) – 700 ml, color Brown
Brita Water Pitcher 10 Cup, size Large
Rubber Coated Soap Pump Bottles – I have two by the kitchen sink, one for dish soap and one for hand soap.
Malden Sea Salt Flakes – great as steal and bakery toppers
Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Multi-Surface Cleaner Spray – I have an electric stove top, so this has been handy to keep all surfaces clean.

AVOCADO Green Pillow – Size Queen
AVOCADO Molded Latex Pillow – Size Queen (my current favorite, the perfect combo for back and side sleeper on the Avocado Green mattress.)
Read my AVOCADO mattress and pillow blog post review HERE. I also have 2 Casper pillows: the Original and the Foam pillow. My partner is a stomach sleeper, and he really likes the foam one.
Full-Length Floor Mirror – I got the black one since it goes with the interior of this apartment better than gold (my normal color of choice).
Japanese Futon Mattress – I got size queen, so it sleeps 2 – 3 guests. I’ve tested and slept on it for a week, and it’s great. Note that I’m a back sleeper, so it’s got the perfect amount of plush.
Yamazaki Standing Makeup Mirror – I got the white one from Burke Decor
MUJI Oak & Stainless Steel Shelf – Mine is the L (tallest, 4 compartments), Regular version, W22.8″xD16.1″xH69.0″. It also comes in all stainless steel and Wide style. Note that this exact style might not be available online, but check your local MUJI store as they might have it in-store. I got lucky and was able to pick this up at the MUJI store in Hudson Yards in New York.
Tension Rod – no drilling required, renter-friendly, great to hang curtains and shower curtain rod
Linen Curtain – Color white, comes in a variety of lengths and colors
Velvet Hangers – Slim, set of 100, color Black
Rylan White Reversible Bath Rug 18″x24″

Glossier face wash
