ON THE MOVE...

Do pardon the light activity around these parts this week as I move into my own little piece of New York! I've been saving my pennies and counting down the days for quite some time — it's hard to believe that it's actually happening! Yesterday my dad and boyfriend got most of the big pieces in place, which means my mom and I can get to the fun part: decorating! It's teeny tiny — 375 square feet, eek! — but I'm smitten with the natural light and eager to create a space that works for me, my business, and my puppy :) I have lots of fun projects I'm planning to tackle and I can't wait to share them all with you! And in the meantime, if you have any brilliant tips for making moving a little less stressful, I'm all ears...

Keep up with Design Darling

So fun!! I just recently moved out of a 245-sq-ft studio, which I surprisingly loved. Best advice? Pare down all non-essentials (I got rid of boxes and boxes of paperwork, old clothes, stuff I had saved for sentimental reasons but no longer remembered the reason...). Then add in lovely personal touches everywhere so your tiny home still feels luxurious! :) Congrats!

,,,congrats to you on your new abode. 375sqft makes me a little jittery but the windows allowing natural light to shine in will make all the difference. can't wait to see how it all comes together...cheers!,,,

Hi! I've been a long time follower, you even inspired me to start my own online home decor store www.hattanhome.com

I lived 10 glorious years in NYC, how exciting! I'm jealous!!! Such a cute little place you found- I lived in a tiny space about that size and less is definitely more! Enjoy decorating!

Love following your story!
