Lately I’ve been dreaming of relocating to a new apartment… something with a little more space and character, and above all, some higher ceilings! And when I do, I have a feeling these details may get incorporated…

I have a mild obsession with sheer window panels. I love the way they filter sunlight (when we have it) and the idea of breaking up a long hallway by hanging them indoors seems so dreamy.

I’ve always liked the idea of an organic wood coffee table, but they seem so impractical for balancing food and drink. This solution is perfection – the contrast of modern with organic is one I always enjoy, and this setup adds interest (and length!) to look.

It’s almost funny how many apartments in Seattle have black and white checkered flooring in the dinette area. I haven’t always been a fan, but seeing how well this little space comes together, I may have just changed my tune.

I’ve already started filing away more ideas like this for the next place… now all I need is the actual apartment!

    Love this post; particularly the sheer window panels. They look beautiful breaking up the space in the long hall and I’ve seen them hung on either side of the bed to create a cozy feeling. Beautiful.

    I’m a fan of the harlequin pattern…planning to stain our deck this way…AS SOON AS THE WEATHER PERMITS! Come ON Spring! franki

    i hear you girl! our apartment right now is totally temporary and has absolutely zero character. i cannot wait to relocate to a more permanent place {preferably with wood floors, original crown molding, multiple fireplaces, tall ceilings, and lots of windows}. 🙂
