HOME sweet home ♥
Today I’m so excited to finally reveal my new home to you guys!! Z Gallerie and I worked together to create the apartment of my dreams! I had just spent months apartment hunting and finally settled on the perfect place! Two bedrooms, floor to ceiling windows for lots of natural light, and close enough to my family to have them over for dinner. I have always had a huge passion for interior design and creating spaces that fit my own personal style, so I was beyond excited to work with Z Gallerie to make this new space a home! Z Gallerie has always been my go-to store for furniture and decor that feels luxe and looks chic, so to work together was a dream come true!
As an entrepreneur, it’s so important for me to stay motivated and inspired on a daily basis. Since I spend so much time working from home, I really wanted to design a space that felt warm, inviting, and reflected my love for fashion! Z Gallerie gave me THE dream team!! I worked with Lucie Ayres of 22 Interiors, an incredibly talented interior designer, that was able to take my vision to a whole new level. My interior style has always been very minimal, elegant, and white with silver accents. I’ve always designed my previous apartments like this, and although they were very pulled together, it always seemed like there was always something missing. What I loved most about working with Lucie is that she was able to create a space that was sophisticated and elegant, yet incorporate some playful statement pieces and textures that really added depth to the space. She knew exactly what pieces to choose to make an impact..combining modern, glam, and organic elements to make the space feel interesting, yet very well balanced.
My new living room is as dreamy and chic as I imagined it!! I spent a lot of time at home shooting content for the blog and working on my laptop, so not only is it vital for me to have a space filled with natural light, but my furniture pieces and decor should never overpower the lighting! I wanted to keep a neutral palette for this room and make sure the natural lighting came through in the best way possible. I think the draperies, marble table and white faux fur accents compliment the soft, natural light perfectly!!
To me, my bedroom is like my private oasis. Since my days are always so full and stressful, it’s so important for me to have a bedroom that I can come into feeling relaxed and at peace. I really wanted my bedroom to look sleek, modern and luxurious, yet still feel cozy and peaceful after a long day. My favorite part is the mirrored elements, they really open up the room and make a statement when you walk in. And the room wouldn’t be complete without this beautiful art piece of a serene blue ocean..I love waking up to this image everyday!
I’m loving my new dining table so much that I haven’t even touched it!! For my dining space, Lucie focused on having ultra sleek, white and silver dining sets that are very clean and modern, yet was able to add fun and interesting accents like the diamond-shaped glasses, marble candles, and faux succulents!
One of the main reasons I’ve always loved Z Gallerie is because you can get that luxe look in your home without having to redesign your whole space! Some of my favorite decor items to glam up any space are layering some of their faux fur pillows, textured throws, artificial flowers, and candles.
I hope you guys enjoy my new space as much as I do!! It’s been a long process putting this all together, but I’m beyond happy with the way everything turned out :) Whether you’re looking for a full redesign or just a few updates, I hope this space can inspire you too!
