I've gone a couple of times to spend a week with my good friend Hyeku who lives out in New York. She is my favorite person because she takes me to all those little places that only locals would know about. My trips are never touristy and I meet the greatest people and have the most creative time of my life. She has a tiny apartment, but it works and makes for cozy and entertaining parties. Many nights we'd end up sleeping at whatever apartment we were visiting when 3 a.m. hit. It was a blast and I want to have more experience like that, but with my wonderful husband now.
What got me on this big kick was a New York home tour I saw on Madebygirl of Melanie's from Luxury Monograms. I would give almost anything for a view like this
I'd die to have windows in my apartment that large.
Can my office desk look out onto an amazing street/city view like that please?
I had to throw this last shot in because she has a great space that she has really made her own.
P.S. We are moving to St. Louis at the end of July which many keep telling me is a "big city". I'll take what I can get. I've heard there are great things in that city too.
