When it comes to choosing art for our apartment I can be indecisive, to say the least. It feels like this incredibly personal commitment and I want to be confident in my decision to choose pieces we will take pleasure in looking at every day.
Etsy to the rescue as always. After doing some research I came across the work of Ora Birenbaum. I felt the love and emotion put into each piece coming through the screen and I knew right away that her vision would be perfect for our walls. I hope to own a painting in the future but for now, here are a few of my top picks.

There is no doubt about it, I am a total homebody. To me, it doesn’t get much better than not having any where to go, leisurely cooking a healthy meal and brainstorming about my next blog post. For the past few months that has been easier said than done. For the short amounts of time I was home, I had been feeling like the energy in the apartment was not flowing as it should be. It felt disorganized, hectic and did not allow me to fully relax and enjoy being home when I was there.
Living (and learning how to cook) in NYC has taught me how to make the most of small spaces. I spend a lot of time at home and am a strong believer that you should fill your space with items that make you smile. I was inspired to find unique plates to hang in the kitchen after watching this LeafTV episode. It is such a simple (and affordable) idea but one that I would never have thought of on my own. During a recent trip to Anthropologie I spotted these plates and knew they were the ones. I am always happy when they catch my eye as I am experimenting in the kitchen.
