Nestled on a picturesque block of Jackson Heights in Flushing, NY is this spacious 2 bedroom 1 bath coop in a sprawling post war building. Almost two years ago, when I initially stepped into this space to help Client Crafty, a former Google employee turned professional creative (read: artist, seamstress, crafter, DIYer, novelist, botany student - the list goes on!) and her equally talented boyfriend, a self-employed creative advertising mastermind, I liked it immediately. I was coming off of some super high-end projects and this was a fun new challenge. Both of the clients are into thrifting, pops of fun color, DIY projects and fun mid-century vintage pieces.
For me, the major selling point of the apartment was the expansive entry foyer. You just don't get these anymore! It's basically the size of an average NYC living room. I love how it opens seamlessly into the large, light-filled living room (accompanied by an open yet formally separate dining room, bright kitchen and outdoor space - but I'm getting ahead of myself!). Back to the foyer.
Such a warm, bohemian welcome, amirite? It's not to pristine or stuffy and completely sets the tone for the rest of the apartment. So, moving right along...
Now, let's take a look out the window at this adorably amazing view as we venture down the hall to the Master Bedroom.
And, we're there!
Such a welcoming hideaway! I'd gladly lay down and take a nice big fat nap in here anytime. I love the way the reading sconces turned out. They were my recommendation due to the beds and nightstands being on the lower side and they allow for more surface area availability on the nightstands. Plus, doesn't get any cozier than a library style lamp to curl up and read in bed with! Last but not least, can we take a minute to worship the hanging plant in the corner?
Almost time to leave. But before we do, let's take a quick peek into the couple's shared office space in the second bedroom.
So there you have it. Clearly this is a couple that knows how to have fun being creative, both in home decor and life in general. They don't take themselves too seriously, buy what they like and make it work in their space! They also don't break the bank doing it. Works for me! I had so much fun being a part of this project.
So what do you think? Should we submit it to Apartment Therapy? Or just greedily keep this one to ourselves?
