Interiors: New York City Apartment

Over the last decade, I have made countless trips to Manhattan. I feel so lucky to have visited the city’s attractions, to live like a real person, and to have explored so many different parts of of this truly inspiring city. Sure, I could do without the crowds and the grime, but Manhattan is like no other. The city is so energetic, and New Yorkers just love their city. My regular trips to NYC, however, have come to an end now that my family is moving out of the city. I had my last visit over Easter weekend and I had to say goodbye to my family’s gorgeous apartment in the heart of Manhattan. They basically gutted the place (awesome before & after photos!) when they bought it. The 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment is white and bright and spacious enough (yes, really) for a family of 6 +1 (me, yes, it’s true). It was truly wonderful to live (I sometimes feel as though I lived there, too) 8 short blocks from Central Park (that’s a 5-8 minute walk, depending on how much jay-walking you do), about the same distance to Times Square, Lincoln Centre, and Rockefeller Centre. Would you like to have a look at their beautiful home?

My sister and brother-in-law have put up their apartment for lease, and I know that the future tenants are going to fall in love with the apartment, the building, the doormen, and the location as my whole family has!

p.s. I couldn’t post the second bedroom because it’s a colourful kid’s room. 🙂

      My sister and her family have been so happy in this apartment. It’s been just perfect. Thanks for your positive comment – the family will be happy to read it! They’re making a move to south…North Carolina. Central Park has been great, but they now need a backyard. 🙂

      So many happy memories have been made in this apartment! They did a beautiful renovation and the place has served their family (and many visitors!) very well! I have no doubt that their next home will be equally beautiful.

    so the love for white runs in the family! What a lovely place. How many kids in the kids bedroom? And are they moving to the suburbs or a new city?

      The love of white sure does run in the family! There are 4 kids…3 in the kids’ room and 1 baby in a crib in the master bedroom (not in the photo). They’re moving to North Carolina…I’m already planning a winter escape!!!

        p.s. The 5 and 4 year olds are in a bunk bed + there’s a toddler bed for the 2 year old. The 8 month old is in the crib. I should post a photo on Twitter or IG because I think people are curious. Stay tuned…
