Bath Linens {Small Spaces}

January 24th, 2014 § 1 comment § permalink

I recently read a post on A Cup of Jo where Erin Boyle shared her tips for living in a small space {a 240-square-foot studio, to be exact}.  One tip she recommended was to use quick-drying towels in the bathroom, to save space and cut down drying time:

“We’re linen towel converts. Our tiny bathroom doesn’t get much ventilation, but linen towels dry so quickly that there’s no musty smell to contend with.”

In our tiny bathroom, I imagine converting to linen towels could be an absolute godsend – they’d be pretty, useful, and stay fresh/dry for far longer than our current towel collection {which is mismatched and takes at least two full cycles in the dryer to dry out}.  I’m considering these {above} or these for example.

Has anyone out there tried linen towels and loved them? Are they hard to get used to?  Please share any tips you may have, so I can convince Josh this is the right move for us 😉

Uncommon Goods {Holiday Giveaway!}

December 18th, 2013 § 1 comment § permalink

Since moving into my little New York City apartment with Josh this summer, I’ve had an amazing time sourcing items to decorate our tiny space. I love br0wsing flea markets, boutiques, and even the street {!} to find unique, affordable items to make our little basement a home.  So when I discovered Uncommon Goods — an online company based right here in New York City with hundreds of beautiful, unique items to choose from — let’s just say I was hooked.

In line with the holiday season of giving, the team over at Uncommon Goods was wonderful enough to send me Bucky Jr. {the handsome cardboard deer you see above} as a gift.  But the gift giving doesn’t stop there! Uncommon Goods is also giving away a $50 giftcard for one of YOU to spend as you wish this Christmas {whether on yourself, or on your loved ones — don’t worry, we won’t tell either way!}.

So what are you waiting for… enter now! » Read the rest of this entry «

Wooden Crate Shelf {DIY}

November 27th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

The other day on the way home from work, I found a wooden crate by the curb outside my local grocery store. You would have thought I found a $100 bill on the ground, I was that excited.  Back in Copenhagen, I used to dream of finding a wooden crate to use as a bike basket — but since I don’t have a bike here in NYC, I had to find another use for it.  I used the yellow paint left over from this project to brighten up the dirty wood, and then added it to a side table in our apartment to create a mini vanity table for all my favorite things.

Zara Home {Decor Crush}

November 1st, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

I vaguely knew that Zara Home existed, but since they don’t carry the products in New York stores, the line had since slipped my mind — until now.

Their Sale Section is unreal – $3 plates and $2 glasses and $7 platters and $25 duvet covers… it’s a DIY-on-a-budget home decorators dream come true. Ohhh… and there is free shipping {and returns!}.

You’re welcome! 😉
