Loft Living + my new Bedding


I’ve told you before that one of my favorite things about my new apartment is the lofted bed.  Living in Manhattan, space is so expensive… I love that I get to have a cozy space to sleep and read, and still have a nice living space down below.

Today I thought I would show you where I sleep.  I was so excited when Bailey (do you read her blog?  You should.  It’s a good one and her family is the cutest.  Also, her daughter is named Grace… NBD) set me up with some beautiful bedding for the new place.  I wanted something happy and fun and had my eye on the Yellow Border Duvet but wasn’t sure what would look good with it.  She had the idea to pair it with polka dotted sheets and a floral accent pillow (and yellow border shams) and I’m so pleased with the end result.  So cozy and cheery, I fall asleep happy.  If you haven’t heard of Biscuit I highly recommend checking them out.  The sheets are so soft + pretty, and she has the cutest fun touches.  And the kids stuff is just out of this world.  If you have a crib to dress up, you have to look at her crib sheets!





[Some of the books I’m reading right now…  Can’t put Sister down, thank you to Jackie from York Avenue for recommending it to me!]


[and just for fun – the view from up top.  More to come, I’m not quite finished here!!]

      it was NOT easy! my coworker found this one… look on streeteasy, that’s where we found this. it takes a lot of work and running around. i used a broker which was expensive, but worth it to find a place i love.

    Oh my gosh Grace your place is the cutest! I love that bedding. Great choice 🙂 I’m in the market for some new sheets and I was going to go with stripes, but you may have convinced me on polka dots with these… (Also that peak of your living room is great – can’t wait to see more!)

    So glad you’re liking the book! “Room” was really good as well. Your bed is adorable-nothing better than a cozy little reading nook (especially with polka dotted sheets). Loved your feature on Glitter Guide today too!

    This makes me want a loft bed SO badly. I have looked at loft-style apartments and never been in love but this totally changes my perspective. Just having the bed perched up so high seems so fun… and so classy! Jealous!
