♥ 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!

  2. That apartment might be tiny, but I LOVE everything about it. :)SarahD

  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!
