So I'm excited to say that my lease is up soon and it's time to find a new place! I love moving, and in fact rarely stayed in the same home for more than two years while growing up. It's such a great opportunity to explore new neighborhoods, as well as to reassess what you own and edit it down to your absolute favorite pieces. (Especially in NYC apts, which are teeny tiny!) Below are some inspiration pieces for my dream apartment ;)

Giving a rental apartment some charm is no easy task, so I love how designer Ashley Whittaker made the most of her small space. A few coats of a high-gloss black paint on her kitchen cupboards instantly makes them chic, as do the custom light fixtures, wallpaper and appropriately scaled rugs.
