apartment aspirations

insideAnna KellerComment

The older I get, the more stuff I accumulate. It's human nature, I suppose, to pile up the books and souvenirs that make me happy, keep on-hand stacks of blankets and pillows to make a Netlix-and-chill session that much more relaxing, and grow my collection of stemless wine glasses (hey, they break eventually!). With each online order of stuff to add to my apartment, I do get a sense of satisfaction that I'm making my home into a fully functioning adult space, but at the same time, I get the nagging sense that I'm moving further and further away from that aspirational minimalist apartment that haunts my dreams and my Pinterest boards.

The warm yet neutral home of Paige Geffen is a space that makes me want to throw 70% of my belongings out on the curb. Her pots and pans all match in the same earthy clay tones, her couch looks perfectly comfortable yet refined, and her mix of metallics, woods, and stone scream sophistication without being too delicate. She could throw a party for all of her closest friends in this space and not worry about anything not surviving - as long as no one spills red wine.
