This morning started off pretty normal, Nick & I woke up, enjoyed a cup of tea with banana cinnamon muffins left over from my last How to Quit Sugar class, & eased into the day with a little on-the-couch conversation. Then, just as I settled in for some yoga, I heard the familiar ding of a facebook notification from my phone... It was one of my burlesque girlfriends congratulating me on my apartment feature over on Apartment Therapy:
We'd submitted our living room for the site's Room for Color Contest a few weeks back, but I had no idea that it had already appeared online. Talk about a great start to the morning!
I love how these photos [taken by one of my favorite photogs & fellow vegan, Aaron Ehinger] showcase perfectly our eclectic lifestyle.
Some of my favorite items around the room include:
♥ Our collection of books [mostly mine] ranging from topics on veganism & green living to fashion & shoes...I'm a very girly hippie. ;) ♥ Our blue glass window farm, made entirely out of recycled & salvaged materials by my boyfriend, Nick. If you'd like to have one of your own that comes complete with installation instructions, check out his store page over at GreenYourSuite.com. ♥ Nick's record collection. It's getting so massive that it's starting to migrate out of our fireplace. Thankfully, I've convinced him to weed out a few titles that will soon be listed in our Vintage & Vinyl Etsy store. ♥ My hand-me-down couch that was entirely re-apolstered by my mother [thanks, mom!] & so comfy. ♥ Our vintage camera collection, found entirely in thrift stores around Chicago. ♥ And, of course, our bright blue walls.
If you'd like to check out more photos & maybe even vote for our entry to help us win, head over to Apartment Therapy & click the little "favorite" button at the bottom of the post.
We'd really appreciate it!
