around the house.

Thursday, May 5, 2011





i've never done an "apartment tour" on the bloggy blog because it would literally consist of me taking 1 picture. in other words, it wouldn't really take a "tour" to see our teensy 1-bedroom. 

but i thought i would share with you some of my favorite parts of the apartment. 

1. sam's very own chilewich pet mat.
2. ed's sister gave him this modern furniture calendar for his desk at work. too bad it never made it to the office and now resides in our apartment. 
3. the womb chair, of course.
4. i love that we have a fireplace, even though it doesn't work and serves no real purpose. it's a great place for fresh flowers and the built-in mirror makes the room look bigger.

Your apartment looks amazing and VERY well put together! That chair looks great, I love the color a lot.

I agree with Mo Pie. And love your desk area...it's so clean! My desk area is a disaster zone. :(

Love the doggie bowl. How many dogs do you have?

rebecca said...

ashley-
just 1 little sam wiggins. those are his food and water bowls.

naomi said...

are you sure your fireplace doesn't work? we thought our fireplace in our nyc apartment was purely for decoration until we found out that it actually works. now we use it all the time! and by all the time i mean we've used it maybe three times.

rebecca said...

naomi-
no way! i have no idea how to tell if we can use it or not. our super just told us it doesn't work anymore. i would love to have a real fire in the winter. though that's also a pain in the butt i'm sure.

It sounds like my type of space - small but tasteful, organized, and with dearly loved little things :)

Nikki said...

Great pieces. I've been eyeing the pet mat and of course the womb chair for sometime. I think the pet mats will be purchased soon, although I'd rather have the other ;(.

I looooove apartment tours. I wish more bloggers would get on board with this. I'm guessing it's because most of them are creeped out by the fact that I'm so obsessed with peeking into their homes. Makes sense.

rebecca said...

vanessa-
i love seeing how people live as well. its says so much about a person.

Ashley said...

I love tours! So funny about the one room. We give skype tours to family occasionally: just hold up the laptop and spin. Voila! Looks like such a lovely space.

rebecca said...

ashley, we do that too!

Junaluska said...

The pet mat and food bowls are absolutely adorable!

Elizabeth Saucier said...

i love those dog bowls, where are they from?

rebecca said...

elizabeth-
i wish i knew. the dog bowls were a wedding gift for sam wiggins when we got married. i have no clue where they came from, or who gave them to us for that matter. woops.

Punctuation Mark said...

Rebecca, it may be teensy (all NYC apartments are, aren't they?) but it's adorable. Just from these four photos I can tell that you have real style. But I already knew that. Hope you're having a great weekend, my dear!
