♥ we may not have it all together, but together we have it all.


my friend sarah sent along the cutest article from the ny times
that i just had to share with you. daniel and dasha faires are highschool
sweethearts & newly weds from arkansas who now inhabit a teeny tiny
375-square foot apartment in the big apple.

at $2,000 a month, this apartment boasts little over two rooms:
one bedroom and another for everything else-- which may sound like a
shoe-box until you see the pictures. thanks to the high ceilings, exposed brick,
the additional outdoor terrace and the couple's fabulous conglomeration
of found objects and re-purposed furniture pieces, their cozy nook appears
to be much roomier than you would imagine.

i love the chalkboard painted wall, the apothecary-like accessories and
the wooden furnishings made by mr. faires himself for his company,
capsule furniture. each piece comes with a small time capsule of
the wood's history. total genius.

14 ♥ love notes.:

  1. Love everything about this apartment!!! So NYC! The black board wall, high ceilings, decor and exposed brick just oozes cool!

  3. Whoa, it's beautiful! I'm envious of their abilities to create such a great space out of so little. Our little apartment is just full of clutter, we have no design skills at all!

  11. I love how they've made such great use of their space! So pleasing to the eye. My boyfriend was just talking about wanting a small cozy space, and I was like O_o but this makes me reconsider. So lovely.
