Making an Apartment into a Home!

Recently I and my cat became the sole dwellers in my beautiful 1200 square foot apartment. Imagine tall ceilings, big windows and sun-drenched hardwood floors. I love it. I'm especially loving the feeling of freedom that comes when you alone get to choose your environment--how you decorate it, how and when you clean it, and how you use it. I'm finding myself choosing to be spare with tchotchkes, heavy on comfort and practicality, and I like not bringing in anything new to the space until I know what purpose the object will serve and where it will "live."

Both these books are a great inspiration in this mission. Isn't it exciting?
