Happy Monday, loves!  Did you have a beautiful weekend, or was it graced by more snow like ours?  Luckily it turned from flakes to rain, so by Sunday’s sun, new accumulation had melted/washed away.  Everywhere is still incredibly soggy and not so fun.  Good thing I had so many new and exciting things to work on in the apartment!

As you can see everything was little, but made all the difference, don’t you think?  For those nightstands, I have the perfect formula figured out for each table– all I have to do is find the exact items.  I did dedicate major time to researching nightstand design, but I am straying from the tips I found to better suit our needs.  For instance, no lamps are required– it’s been staying bright until about ten!  Which means, I can read in bed without a light on until then.  Also, Ethan is a minimal guy, so I’m not going to plop a ton of unnecessary stuff onto his table just for the sake of it.  He will be getting an interesting box to catch all his small items and a vintage fan.  You can already see how my side is heavily influenced by my reading, but I’m going to also include two special photos as well as a lucite tray and a carafe (I hope!).

A few other things are new in the living room, but the leftover cardboard box is cramping the overall style.  I’m going to work on organizing the packaging and get things squared away for more documentation.  Hope you enjoyed these little details!
