NAT NESTS: OUR LITTLE HOUSE ON HOUZZ


we were delighted when houzz.com contacted us about featuring our apartment on their site. putting this apartment together has been so much fun. it is nowhere near finished, but perfection is the enemy of the good, as they say. and as we all know, i am nothing if not the exact opposite of a perfectionist. 








just a few photos for now,
you can go HERE to see the rest.
and thank you to houzz for having us!

  2. Such a beautiful home you've made! I love the poster you made, too. And is it weird that seeing Huck's little bedroom totally makes me want to sleep in a closet? Hmmm. Well, if it worked for Harry Potter, it'll work for me! (Actually, it probably won't work for me, but I'm going to dream about it for a little while, then promptly get over that fantasy.)

    Your place is gorgeous! Does it not feel a little weird to have photos of your bedroom all over the internet? I think I might feel a bit odd about it. And those flowers are spectacular! I may buy myself some flowers today in your honour!!!

  12. Oh my god... where did you get the "to the moon and back" poster? I know it's from that super popular kids book but it has such a big significance for me and my Fiancé (it's actually engraved in my engagement ring). I just love this :-)
    Your table is awesome too by the way.

  14. These are awesome...I'd love you to do a detailed blog on making use of small spaces. I'm always feeling dissatisfied with my tiny little house, but yours is so welcoming and so not overstuffed! I think a purge may be in my future.

  16. I love your style so much. Also I love the garbage day comment, when I lived there I found an awesome scooter in the trash on West 75th I think? And I still have it. I was pretty excited about it.

  20. Your place is so cute and lovely! It looks like you put alot of thought and time into it but at the same time it is so personal! I love that table from World Market. I thought about getting it. Can't wait to see what your finished result will look like because it already it looks great =)
