Brooklyn Apartment Tour (Part 2)

Welcome back to the tour of our Brooklyn apartment. If you missed Part 1, or want to see the floorplan again, you can find it here. Today we’re taking a look at the back of the house: the bedroom, bathroom, and office.

The bedroom used to be chainsmoker yellow like the kitchen. But thanks to Apartment Therapy, it’s now sort of purply-gray.DSC_0075 Continue reading

Bedroom Reveal

Remember the contest I won . . . the one where I got some help redoing my bedroom. Well here’s the big reveal.

Ta-da!!! See that paint color? That’s Glidden’s Dolphin Grey. I thought it was going to be gray. Nope. It’s totally lavender.

In case you have no idea what I’m talking about, let me give you a little recap. In July, some folks from Apartment Therapy and Glidden showed up to help me make over my bedroom. They brought a film crew to tape the whole process. And Nicole Balch of Making it Lovely played design guru. See the video here! Continue reading

Very Exciting News

I won an Apartment Therapy contest! That means I got to spend all day yesterday with Nicole Balch from Making it Lovely. She came over to help me redo my bedroom. Yes, Nicole now knows all about the dust bunnies we keep under our bed.

But it wasn’t just Nicole who showed up at 8am, oh no. I had an entire video crew here to capture the transformation, a paint crew to help with the redo, and Anna Hoffman and Chris Phillips from Apartment Therapy. It was crazy amounts of fun and a lot of hard work. (PS. I don’t see an acting career in my future.) (PSS. I’m terrified that I may have made a very unfortunate wardrobe choice. Why did I tuck my shirt in? I NEVER wear it that way. Sigh.)

The swatches. Really ANY of these colors would be an improvement!

The makeover was low budget — we painted, we moved some things around, and Nicole added a few touches of her own. But the room looks COMPLETELY different. The video is going up on Apartment Therapy in August, but until then here’s a tiny sneak peek. I can’t wait to show you the whole space!

Can you guess which color I chose?
