I’ve lived in my current apartment for almost 2 years now (so crazy) and I haven’t really shared much of it on the blog. I just feel like it’s always evolving and has never been ready for a full-on dedicated post. But eh, we’re thinking about moving again so I thought I’d better take some photos of the place before we jump ship.
Speaking of jumping ship, I’ve officially deemed “apartment hunting in Santa Monica” as the most difficult task I have ever tried to complete. You think you’ve found the perfect place and then BAM it has no parking. Or it has no stove. Or it has no doors. Something weird like that. Really, landlords of Santa Monica? Get it together.
Speaking of getting it together, this weekend was so unproductive and I loved every second of it. Lazy weekends are the best. I did go to UNIQUE LA on Sunday, which was amazing by the way. But other than that, I spent a lot of time on the couch, catching up on shows, knitting, reading, writing – lots of happy things. Unproductivity is the best, am I right?
I LOVE THIS POST!! i love your apartment and all your decor and these photos are fab. and i have that hobnail candle holder/container thing from anthro too!
These details are so dreamy and amazing! And apartment hunting in any cool/nice neighborhood is the pits. I hear ya!
