Happy Monday! To kick things off around here, I thought I'd show you around our place. I've 'grammed a few peeks into our apartment, and I often get comments saying they want to see more. Can do!

Chris and I recently got married, and I've been trying to do a good job of adapting my the apartment to suit a masculine look as well. On moving day, Chris's words were, "Can we make this place look a little less... girly?" There were probably a few too many floral patterns around that day. So we paired it down.

More often than not, this is about practicality. Example: I want flowers on my nightstand and the dresser. Chris says, "What are those for?" Men. They make you think.

Anyway... a lot of what we've purchased is from Target or World Market. We also have items here and there that we received as gifts from our Pottery Barn registry (like our awesome bedding!).

Of course, there are still some things I'd love to switch up or add. I'd love some indoor plants. I'd also love to add more color over by the dining table (my solution for now was painting those two small canvases) and I'd love a larger piece of artwork on the wall above the couch. If Emily Henderson could just stop by and make some magic happen, I'd be cool with that. 

So far, we are really pleased with what we've got. We spend a lot of time here, and we love it!
