Apartment Tour: Part 1

As you all know by now, I'm settled in to New York! As promised, here is part 1 of my apartment tour: My bedroom. Since I'm living downtown, space is limited so technically by bedroom is my whole room, but I'm going to break it up into parts anyway. I live in a little alcove studio in Manhattan and so far I love my place! All of the furniture is from Ikea and I put it together myself! So I'm pretty proud of that.  Take a look:

I couldn't find a headboard so instead, I decided to use a mirror which also helps to make the room look bigger. By the window is the AC which makes a large window sill. For now I made it a little place for Dixie or myself to sit. I'm also waiting on the rest of my bedding (the duvet cover will also have my monogram.) from Pottery Barn

Next to the bed is my nightstand (also from Ikea) that holds all of my jewelry and nail polish and what not. And at the end of my bed there are two footstools with storage inside. They're a great way to store things like blankets and towels. Small apartments are all about hidden storage! Even the bed is a storage bed where I have extra clothes like nike shorts, tshirts, and sweats. The drawers are huge which is really nice.

The (dark and rainy) view from my window:

Next is an idea I saw on pinterest: using a bookshelf for shoe storage. I always hate how I've stored my shoes in the past, but this time I really love it! This bookshelf is for my heels and boots (not everything fit on here so I have more storage elsewhere). To organize it, I started with boots on the bottom, then wedges, then heels. I also tried to organize them by color (the best I could). Then on top, I store my boxes.

I hope you like the first part of the room! Excited to share the rest :) Do you have extra tips for room storage? I'd love to hear!


  1. I love the bookshelf shoe storage idea! That's a great way to keep your shoes in nice condition when you're not wearing them. I rely heavily on underbed storage!

  2. loving it so far! i think i have the same mirror in my room! dark and rainy, your view still beats mine.

  3. Adorable! Looks cozy and you have a great view!

  4. You're apartment is adorable, and seems super cozy!
