Another plus is that it’s right where the laundry is for all the pool towels and clothing changes as they’ll then have a dedicated place to dry off and change and leave their wet towels or rinse their muddy boots or whatever it might be they bring in from playing in the yard. Slightly snea, If you’re wondering, the answer is yes. You are such a beautiful sprint with the most adorable family. Love what you did with the space- it has you written all over it!! I’m learning that when I lean into this change, and really open my eyes to see the good these last few months have brought us, I can’t deny the immense sense of gratitude I have, knock-down walls and all. I shared in depth on the blog today what I've noticed has helped -- everything from giving myself twenty-ish minutes (sometimes ten, sometimes three!) Love your space and the use of bright colors!! and we finally have a sofa sleeper! It really speaks to my heart as I think about what may have taken place here before us, with little ones that grew to be big ones with walls I am hopeful maintained a safe space for a family to make the memories within them. Perhaps the old bedroom wasn’t one you loved? Many listings are reasonably priced apartments from smaller landlords. Happy Thanksgiving <3 Whenever they needed to use the bathroom, they had to run from one side of the home through several rooms to the other side of the home leaving behind a trail of puddles since there isn’t a bathroom anywhere near the pool. READ MORE! It looks so beautiful and comfy. Enjoy you home with your sweet little family. This might be too aussie, but you should check out the BuildHer Collective and Design School Master Class. You are inspiring! Love, love, love the space! We’ll be doing a full kitchen renovation (we are SO excited about this! Can I move in with you guys? I LOVE this update! We looked at pitching the ceiling and taking advantage of the attic space in the main living areas, but the price (or bid as they call it) for a project like that had a jaw dropping price tag reaching six figures (and we wouldn’t be able to live in the home during that part of the renovation for 9 months or more). congrats on the new apartment, and it’s beautiful! We’re creating a mudroom off the garage with good storage space for shoes and coats and all the kiddo things (since we currently don’t have a good set up near any door for those things). We are here for your journey in growing and (re)building your beautiful new home with your kids in Arizona! Best of luck with the renovation!!! I have always enjoyed reading your blog posts and seeing your Instagram stories. Your apartment looks INCREDIBLE!! this city just feels like home to us, more than any other place in the world, and we are grateful for this chance to have a little more space to spread out in and call home in our favorite city. also, see my fiddle leaf fig tree behind the sofa? decorated your new place!!! this primrose mirror is also from anthropologie. he kept running over the camera to see the photo afterwards to see if you could see him holding the remote, but i guess he just wasn’t understanding that he could kind of hide it in his hand and take the picture each time. In fact, were lucky enough to be guests on the Rachael Ray show in February (and carting those kids around the city (during that horrible blizzard!) ), so cute and fun! The demo started this week on a few things we are changing inside the home so we sealed up a back section of the house we aren’t currently working on and crammed the furniture and belongings into it for the meantime. Congrats on your new place! I love that Josh picked out the pink chairs! Love the decor! Thanks Josh! i’ve been wanting to share a post about urban living, and how we’ve made a 2 bedroom apartment in new york city work for our family of 5. we’ve been in this space for almost 3 years, and since questions around city living seem to be asked a lot these days, i thought i’d share what we’ve learned and how we manage. that headboard and mirror are stunning, love! All the color, just shows your personalities! I'm Naomi (but sometimes known as Taza) and this is where I share bits and pieces of life's adventures - celebrating motherhood, family, travel, good food and the simple joy's. It’s amazing how much clarity you can get on what you’d like to do with a space after really living in it for a bit and seeing how your family utilizes the rooms or how the flow of traffic works within the layout. What a bright, fun and lovely new apartment Naomi, it feels just like you :-)! I’ve been trying different sites out and still can’t seem to find a site that I LOVE using yet. I especially love the pink chairs, gallery wall and that amazing area rug! Thanks for sharing! My favorite is the gallery wall. I’m also renovating(currently on pauze due to my pregnancy) As always thanks for sharing your journey with us. Exceptional views; Spacious one, two and three bedroom apartments… gorman and something that josh bought by himself in santa fe, new mexico, long before i knew him. welcoming.

After years of raising our 5 littles in New York City, we are currently embracing a new chapter among our citrus trees and chickens in Arizona! we both fell completely in love with the losange chairs you see in these photos after we sat in them for the first time (and like i said, we sat on a lot of chairs!). now people don’t have an excuse to not visit us. same with all the old woodwork. It just summarise it well for me. . (i’ll show the lower hanging soffits in better detail in a video soon! It’s really beautiful! we have a lot more room in this apartment than our older one, and while part of me has no idea what to do with the extra wiggle room (and trying my hardest not to clutter it up which i could so easily do in my sleep if you ask me), the other part of me just feels really thankful that we are here still, still in manhattan, still in our favorite neighborhood of the upper west side, making a home for our little family.
