Inspiration Friday: Kate's Apartment

A few weeks ago, I got to spend a week with my friend Kate in Dallas. I thought you might like a peek into her awesome apartment. Ready for a tour?

  • Isn't this a cute way to display your books- on a windowsill.

  • Love the view of Dallas- and sleeping next to an open window in March. :)

  • Don't you love the red phone and wicker coffee table?

  • I love the way the bookcases are angled.

  • Plaid. Couches. Don't you love them?

  • Julia Child with a little Texas added in. We found this while browsing some shops at the Stockyards in Fort Worth.

  • Kate has cute little containers like this for her tea, coffee filters, and utensils.

  • Keys and a cheery apron on a hook by the front door.

  • A friend of Kate's made this paper star out of paper from Old Navy- super clever.

  • I love the black, white, and red.

  • books, paper flowers, movies.

  • More awesome paper-cleverness.

  • a row of hooks to store purses. Rather than tossing them on your closet floor, like I do!

  • The bathroom is all black, white, and pink. Girly, but not too girly!

  • super sweet shower curtain.

  • Is it just me, or does it look like Carrie Bradshaw could live here?

  • I love that the set up is focused on conversation (and books!) rather than a TV. A super comfortable place to hang out.

  • Here's a little perspective on where everything is. I like how the couch divides the living room from the kitchen.

  • I took advantage of all that vacation reading....

Thanks for the hospitality, Kate! Can't wait till I get to come visit again...

Thanks for posting this. I love compliments from great people whose taste I love. It makes me so happy that you feel at home here. I am seriously considering coming to Chicago this summer... Is that too soon?!

I miss you.

P.S. Thanks Glenda & Adrianne :)
