As a chronic renter, I’m tackling the usual apartment hurdles with a renewed vigor in our new-to-us apartment. As opposed to the past few cities we’ve lived in, we came to Philly knowing we’d be here for the next several years — and with that knowledge, I’ve been decidedly more proactive about settling in and creating a home. While a lot of my ideas for our abode will have to come gradually (because, for one, costs add up fast no matter how much D.I.Y. you put into things), I’m happily left ogling all the beautiful spaces these interwebs can proffer up to my interiors-crazed self in the meantime.
That said, have you seen this phenomenally curated home by Jesse James and Kostas (Gus) Anagnopoulos? Their tour was recently shared on Remodelista, and while it leans a bit more “traditional / farmhouse rustic” than my personal tastes, there were so many vignettes that stopped me in my tracks and left me drooling. That dark navy paint above is leaving me questioning the dark gray I just did in our kitchen…maybe I made the wrong choice?
That antique lamp is haunting me ^. It’s just so good.
