The number one reason that I'm looking forward to funemployment is the prospect of getting to travel more. And one of my favorite parts of traveling is bringing back little things to incorporate into my apartment and/or wardrobe. However, I've always found it challenging while abroad to try to wrap my head around how a particular item would work in the context of my life in New York. Well, I recently found some serious inspiration when I stumbled across this apartment tour in TimeOut NY.
Travel photographer Jessica Antola's Carroll Gardens pad seamlessly integrates vintage furniture, modern textiles, and items from her frequent globetrotting. I love the collection of art above her fireplace, the pink wall (again with the pink!), and that dress! And I'm kicking myself for not buying those great Commie-figurines when I was in China (seems like they're easier to incorporate than the complete Mao tea-set I purchased). Lots of inspiration here for my upcoming apartment improvements!
