Pre-War meets Mid-Century

All I want to think about is living in a Pre-War apartment.


I constantly daydream about looking up at high ceilings with ornate, plaster mouldings, walking over parquet floors, and entertaining in front of a fabulously intricate fireplace.


But then again I also daydream about being Beyonce a lot, so I’m not sure how realistic these dreams are.


Anyway…. I’m in love with stark white walls to showcase all of the glorious architectural details.  So fresh.  But what really turns me on is incorporating carefully curated pieces of mid-century modern furniture, art, and lighting. Especially the beloved Sputnick.


I just love the tension.







Yes, this needs to happen in my life.


  1. Hey lady! Love the new blog design, looks so cute! I happen to live in a super old apartment at the momento – like 1930’s, I believe? And when I want to kill myself for dealing with a broken elevator AGAIN or for having to put on sweaters to sleep in because radiators are a joke, I will be reminding myself of this post 🙂 So pretty!

    few minutes and actual effort to make a superb article… but what can I
    say… I hesitate a whole lot and never seem to get anything done.
