My sister in law, Lindsay, just recently moved into an awesome new apartment, which is in such a fun part of town, has plenty of space, and (maybe most importantly) has about a zillion closets. I'm not kidding, I have never seen an apartment with so much amazing closet space! I'm definitely a little jealous:)
Lindsay brought with her a bed and cute Anthropologie bedding and a couch and love seat in a great neutral, beige color that allows her some flexibility in her choices for the rest of the living room. I brought over a cute rug that we're not using anywhere at the moment that will go in the dining room, and as you know, we found a major score for a dining room table. We're picking out chairs now, and I can't wait to show you what we've found!
Since she moved to Louisville from a tiny NYC apartment, Lindsay didn't have much furniture for the new place, so we recently made a list of what she needs and focused on her top priorities. During the day while she was at work I checked out several of our antique and second hand furniture places, we both scoured eBay and Craigslist, and one night last week we took a little trip over to Home Goods... which turned into a scene from Supermarket Sweep:) You never know what you'll find at Home Goods, but this trip was a huge success! It got the point where we couldn't actually get everything we had picked out to the front or in the car, so I came back the next day to load up the rest.
We got her an awesome rug for the living room, three lamps, FIVE side tables/nightstands, a bathroom cabinet and a ton of smaller things that she needed for the apartment. Once again it confirmed that Home Goods is one of my favorite places on earth.
I'll be sure to take some photos of our finds in her apartment soon!
