for my parents. so they know i'm okay.



have i told you i love my new room?! well i do.

it has a door.

and a closet.

neither of which did i have on 80th street (depsite the 1,100 a month rental tag).



the most important part of the room: the office/workspace
(that big, black square is actually a cork-board covered in chalkboard paint {dual purpose})


when a girl doesn't have a headboard, she makes do. 
(four canvases covered in chalk-board paint {inspired by pottery barn})


my version of an "entrance hall" 
(mom, i finally put last year's green bird hooks to use!)


dresser, and dressing area

Pretty space.
Sometimes I wish my house was in another area. I charge $400/month for a one bedroom (w. doors and closet ;)) with a nice view of our downtown area. Inexpensive even for here, the usual is $600 but, hey, my mortgage is paid and I wish someone had done it for me...Though I am waiting for the day when I say "Time to move out, I need that space for my studio now."
I hope you are happy in your new space.
