NYC Apartment







I know, I know this home has been featured over on Design*Sponge, but I really have become smitten with it. I try hard to be somewhat blog original, but sometimes I find things to be so inspiring I can't help myself. This is one of those times. That kitchen full of subway tile is such a dream. The inky black doors have me drooling. Oh, and don't even get me started on all the art work. You must check out Design*Sponge for more images and full write up of this home formerly owned by interior designer Ellen Hanson.

Everything about that apartment makes me giddy. Moving from our home to a 1600 square foot apartment has its challenges. After seeing these pictures, though, I feel ready to take them on!

Thanks so much Paula!

Oh wow, I never knew I would like black doors and floors so much! They look amazing here.
I really like the frames of the kitchen cupboards.

I love these images! The kitchen is just right for me! I am a big fan of subway tiles. Also, the room with the black doors is fantastic. There are so many different ways to decorate...which way to go?

Totally agree! I think you and I think alike when it comes to kitchens!

Marija said...

Totally agree re: those doors. The fact that there are two, side by side, makes it! And you can see a sneak peak of another one in the living room shot. Love it! Marija

Where is this apartment in NYC precisely? None of mine while I lived there ever looked like that. Then again, I was a poor college student at the time. Still. I'd move back in a moment if I could live there.

Because you called the post NY apartment, I thought it was *your* apartment and I almost died of envy. Almost. :)
