As someone who doesn’t really have the interior design gene (which is weird, I know, since I work with clothes + style), it took us quite a while to get our place right. So I was excited (and proud) when you guys starting asking for an apartment tour. I take you through all our rooms (not that there’s that many) and I’ve linked all the pieces below, including our new Dyson PureCool and Humidifier. Enjoy!

    I love the rug! Thinking of the ordering one as well, do you remember if there were any import taxes? Thanks 🙂

    Clean and a modern and really beautiful! Great taste! What a view!! I was so sad to hear about your dog’s passing! I actually just saw your packing video earlier and thought she was adorable! Sorry for your loss.

    Would you recommend your laptop stand? What is it called and where did you get it? Thanks!

    I really expected more from you apartment since I realy like you fashion style so much.
    I think you should invest in more quality interior and not buy those knockoffs.
    eg the chair in the entry is originally by eames / Vitra and the lounge chair is the barcelona by knoll.
    But that is just my opinion.
    And I think the nice balcony could use some greenery 😉

      Unfortunately not everyone (myself included) can afford the original Barcelona chair, and this one is just inspired by it. You don’t have to like the apartment by any means, I just wanted to show it since I got so many requests.

        Hi Jill!
        I’d just like to chime in here and say how refreshing it was to see on trend and functional pieces at a more realistic price point! From an Interior designer’s point of view, you did an amazing job and the fact you found budget friendly finds just shows how down to earth you are! Xo

    Your apartment looks amazing!
    How do you like the Dyson Pure Cool? Is it worth the price? I’ve heard mixed reviews about it!

    Thanks for posting this video! You have a lovely home. I’m loving your rug – wondering how it’s holding up and whether you use a rug pad too?
