Apartment Tour Continued!

Hello friends :)

I’m currently flying over the U.S. somewhere on my way to Los Angeles! I’m heading there for a Dole Blogger Summit and I can’t wait to share all the fun details. I’ll be blogging of course, but make sure you are following me on Twitter, too :)

And now for some entertainment while I’m traveling — the rest of me and Matt’s apartment tour! If you remember, I gave a picture tour of our bedroom, showed you my favorite part of the house (the porch!), and then kept you in suspense about the rest! Oops. Here we go, finally :)

First up — the living room!


Love the pretty fall trees outside the window. That’s “the basket chair” in the right foreground — my parents got it when they were first married (!) and I have always loved it. My mom was tired of it so now it’s mine :)

Here’s the rest of the living room — I’m in love with our big sectional couch. We just need to figure out what to put on the wall behind it! We are thinking of blowing up and framing some of my best photographs… any recommendations for companies/ways to go about doing that?


And, check this out — our coffee table lifts up!! This was the best investment we made by far. When lifted, it’s the perfect level for doing homework (hence why the girls always come over here to do homework!), computer stuff, eating, whatever! And you can store blankets in the bottom. Sweet!


Here’s the fireplace and TV — I’m excited to start a fire once it’s super cold out! To the right is the window next to the basket chair, and to the left is the door out to the porch. 


View from the couch — again, the door to the porch, and to the left is the little hallway that leads to our bedroom! The front door of the apartment is behind us.


Next up — the other bedroom, which we use as an office/guitar room! This room is on the right when you first walk in the front door. Here’s my desk — love being by the window.


On the other side of the room lives Matt’s impressive guitar collection!


He’s an awesome guitar player so it’s fun to listen to him practice. And here’s his desk, with some recording equipment, etc.:


On to the kitchen! The kitchen is not one of this apartment’s strong points — mostly because it doesn’t have any natural light! Boo. But I do like that it’s open — to the right is a bar area so you look right into the dining room.



Love this mounted spice rack Matt put up for me :)


Here’s our dining room, which also doesn’t have any natural light (except what spills in from the living room) — hence why all my food photos are on our porch!


Like our Halloween cat? Heh. I keep forgetting to store him now that Halloween is over! Matt and I want to get a real cat… hopefully after the holidays when traveling has calmed down!

And last but not least — the entry way. Matt hung up this little shelf for us to hang our keys, etc. 037

And there you have it! I hope you enjoyed the official tour. We really like this place :)

Catch you guys later on from the west coast!

    I absolutely love your coffee table. I want one, where did you get it.
    I love the basket chair too. It is now an heirloom. What happened to that pretty dining table from your previous apartment. I like it too

    • 2

      It’s from a random furniture store in NC called “Ashley” – unfortunately I’m not sure what brand it is!

      The dining room table from my DC pictures was my parent’s :)

  2. 3

    Your apartment is adorable :) And two bedrooms, whoa!!!

  3. 4

    looooooooove your coffee table!!!

    can you provide a link/brand for coffee table?

    I also like your sectional – where’d you get it?

    • 5

      I’m actually not entirely sure what the link is! I’m sorry :( It was from a store in NC called “Ashley” – going out of business so we got an amazing deal!

      The sectional is from Rooms to Go – great deal for something that size :)

  4. 6

    I’ve seen those coffee tables and absolutely love them! I don’t have a desk, so one of those would be perfect to blog on (and less back hunching).

    My kitchen in my apartment doesn’t get any natural light. It’s so sad. Oh how I wish for a skylight!

  5. 7

    I like that you’re repping your monogrammed bridesmaid bag on the key holder there! :D Jenny would be so proud. I LOVE that wooden chair btw, and that coffee table is really cool. You make me realize that we don’t take enough advantage of the natural light in our house – our blinds are always drawn! Maybe that’s why my pictures come out so crappy, hahaha. Your apartment looks great though, and I think blowing up some of your photos for decor is a great idea! We’re doing the same thing with some of Ben’s!

  6. 8

    Add me to the list of people who the link to that coffee table! :)

    Your apartment is so cute and homey!

  7. 9

    I have that coffee table! It’s amazing!

  8. 10

    That is the coolest coffee table I’ve ever seen!! We have one that has little triangular benches underneath that pull out for extra seating. But I think yours wins.

  9. 11

    love it! i need my own place, soooo badly…haha.

  10. 12

    can’t wait to hear what you’re up to with Dole…fun stuff!

    That coffee table is AWESOME…one of the coolest I’ve ever seen! Cute place:)

  11. 13

    What a cute apartment :) I love the couch! We’re actually on a hunt for something similar so I can trash my hubby’s old dark brown leather mancave worthy funiture ;) haha ok ok, i’ll let him keep it, but it’s only going in a basement or man cave!

  12. 14

    The basket chair is so cool. I love seating like that that feels like porch but it’s inside.

  13. 15

    Cute place! My brother and his wife got a coffee table similar to yours. The lift feature is amazing!

    As for suggestions as to where to get your photographs blown up/printed/framed, etc., I’d suggest My ex-husband is a professional photographer and he still uses them to process his pictures. They do excellent work and delivery is quite speedy.

  14. 17

    I LOOOVE lifting coffee tables! Guess that’s the laziness/love-eating-while-watching-tv in me! haha

    Really cute basket chair too! Is it comfortable?? Looks great for reading :)

  15. 18

    Your apartment is so adorable! I love the fireplace, I really wish we had one (our new house will have multiple when we are done!) it get chilly in New England. The coffee table pretty much rocks to. Is that candle holder made out of a wine bottle? So cute!

  16. 20

    Very nice, Anne, thanks for sharing the photos/tour. And have fun this weekend!

  17. 21

    the basket chair is awesome! i think i’d rather like one in my home :)

  18. 22

    Your apartment is so cute! I need to get that basket chair. I think it would really enhance my studying skills :)
