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.
