Ususal Suspects- Home Decor

Posted on Wednesday, April 8, 2009 in Happy Home

Oh the joys of moving. In NYC you often shop for the apartment where you currently live. My tip for you is to try not to get too attached to the pieces b/c when you move the process begins all over again. 

One way to decorate is to hire an interior designer to sweep in, personalize and coordinate your style, colors, and organizational needs and be budget conscious along the way. Another is to shop, research, shop and shop some more. I have come to rely on instant gratification when shopping which is why the usual suspects cater to my needs. Pottery Barn, William Sonoma, Crate & Barrel, Design w/ in Reach, West Elm, CB2, William Sonoma Home, Macys, Ikea and Restoration Hardware. Mixing and Matching these items with the purchases from ebay, flea markets, travel tokens and family heirlooms typically make up my style. 

My recent move added a 2nd bathroom and 2nd bath to our apartment, so I need to furnish new spaces, plus use old and new furniture to accommodate the new shape of the common space. Here are some of our favorite finds. 

Restoration Hardware, Newton Accent Table (also comes round & adjusts height)

Design within Reach, Sapien Bookcase ( we looked at the west elm knock off & decided not as nice)
