REVEAL | The Tad Pad

I recently had a blast decorating the new apartment of one of my oldest and dearest gal pals. She was one of the first friends I made when I moved into my very first loft (of many to come) on Washington Avenue 11 years ago. Dang, we’ve gotten older.  And we have both changed a lot.  She is now a big time real estate broker, and I had to finally create the perfect “grown up” apartment that was worthy of how amazing she is.

After a few wine-fueled evenings of online shopping and  DIYing, I’m so pleased with the finished space…
