Sharing photos from our living room and play room today!!! I love our apartment so much which is actually a problem because it makes me such a homebody! Our view of the city is insane. We see the Empire State Building and everything surrounding it from all of the South facing rooms and views of the Hudson River from the West facing rooms. Our apartment was meant to be a 3 bedroom but we converted the dining room into a 4th room/play room!! I love these photos Stephanie took because these are things we do every single day together and it captures our life perfectly. Minus I am not in a skirt, usually sweat pants 😉

Becki Owens designed our living room and she was such a dream to work with! I just love her. She will be designing our custom home in Arizona as well and I can’t wait for you guys to see. I love this tv/media console she picked out and that may be one of my favorite pieces in the home. I also love our dining chairs and table!!! I wouldn’t have thought to do the room like this and I love it!!!

  1. I’m struck dumb with jealousy. Beautiful home, furnishings and landscaping. Such an adorable family you have

  2. Hi Amber!
    I love so many things in your living room!
    I’m redoing my room right now and am trying to redesign it. I painted it all white so I’m trying to add some fun new things. So this really inspired me. You should do more designing stuff like this! Your super good at it.

  3. Thanks you for sharing your lovely apartment and play room, I am always looking for new ideas and ways to make our toy room look less like a bunch of toys and a bit more organized, thanks for some great Inspiration.

  4. Hi Amber, I love your living room and have a question for your new house. Will it be designed in the same style? So will you use your existing furniture when you move?

  5. Hi Amber!
    Looove your apartment! Great taste in furniture and color scheme. Please can you let me know where then teal dresser is from? Thanks!
    Maria

  6. Love your blog so much and your style. Such an adorable family you have. Also Have you/ will you please post the how to video on this hair style? Id love to try it.

  7. Love this post! Your apartment has such a great vibe, and I love the colorful playroom for the kiddos!

  8. This is such an honest and adorable post! I love the simplicity of doing a photoshoot indoors just portraying your everyday life. Such a lovely family!

  9. Great post!! Thank you for sharing your apartment. I love all the pieces you’ve selected. Especially the green love seat in the dining area. I am such a big fan of all that you do. Xoxo Katie

  10. OMG love your living room! You have amazing taste! Love that it’s chic and polished but still fun and eclectic! I would hire you as my interior designer if I could!

  11. Do you get highlights or balyage? Would love to know advice for blonde thinner hair!!

  12. I adore how intentional everything is. Very clean, simple, and thoughtful. I would be a total homebody here too!!!! Absolutely love this.

  13. Your site and social media are a dream to watch!!! I adore your sweet family! I’m happy for you and all your success 🙂 loved people, love people. Hurt people, hurt people so I believe you are smart to delete or disregard hateful comments. I always try to just pray for those people and not take any of that negativity personally because it’s not really my battle, it’s theirs.

    God Bless

  14. cute pictures. what kind of camera that you use for all this photos in this post?

  15. Absoloutely beautiful design! I adore your site, and you’ve inspired me to create my own…. Interior Design and Lifestyle… I’ve just remodelled my kitchen in a house I’ve bought to fix up! It’s a huge project! I know you’re so busy but I’d love it if you had a look if you can! My site is http://www.doodlesandbedtimestories.wordpress.com
    Thank you for always being inspiring 🙂 xx

  16. Hi Amber. I’m curious. Does A sleep on that cute little bed with that’s on the ground!? I’m thinking of doing that with my son. He’s one and keeps climbing out of his crib. He seems ready for a toddler bed but I’m afraid he’ll roll off.

  17. Love it! I’m so happy your posting more of your apartment! I love your style!

  18. Your place is absolute stunning!! I love how you decorate. The people who post mean comments are most likely just jealous of you. You inspire me and sooooo many others!
    xoxo

  19. I laughed so hard on your snapchat about people commenting that you weren’t smart because you didn’t have any books on your shelves!! Too funny. I am an interior designer and although I did notice that the shelves were a little bare and needed some more layering, I myself have empty shelves! I feel like because I’m a designer everyone expects that I will have a perfect home but I am SO picky about what I put in my home because I see so much of the same stuff everyday that I want unique objects in my home. So OWN those bare shelves! Fill them with things that inspire you and make you happy as you go. xx

    1. Also an interior designers and noticed the empty shelves but it never crossed my mind that you guys don’t or can’t read??? That’s Bizzare. lol but I’m also of a mom of a 20 month old boy and 2 month old girl. And I TOTALLY know why the bottom two shelves would be empty in my house.

      The space looks stunning though. Love all the textures.

  20. I’m so sad you’re getting mean comments about not having books. As someone who has moved a lot internationally, it’s just smart to pare down. I LOVE holding a tangible book in my hands, but sometimes a Kindle is the more practical option. Or maybe you loan from the library. Or maybe you’re just not into reading. What happened to “treat others as you want to be treated?”

  21. Loved seeing the finished product. I really enjoyed seeing the dinner table concept. Ive been eyeing those see through chairs for a while and this post truly makes me want to get them. I love the teal sofa looking seat for the table as well. So interesting and artful! Also, love love love the kids play room! Wonderful job! Only positive comments from this girl right here! You’re awesome, Amber! Keep killin’ it!

    americanpetal.com

  22. OMG Where are your books, don’t you read?!?!?! Hah just kidding, just saw your Snapchat and just had to comment. Those haters are insane! And to be honest; with 2 kids; who has time to read anyway?
    Your apartment looks amazing, at first I thought the living room was a bit full, but the kids have such a spacious play room. You really don’t need the space in your living room for them to play.
    Absolutely gorgeous!

  23. I swear that that comment is sooo fuunyy ?? That comment with where’s yours books? My dear Amber… with alll followers of youuurs, sooo maaany people who ADMIRE YOU, people who see in you thier MODEL, are you listening to the other people? People who is sooo jelous because you are sooo beautiful, you have perfect body, perfect kids, perfect hubs, perfect pics, perfect blog, perfect life, happiness, loove and sooo maany things that make you soo special!! I’m jeloous too of all these PERFECT things in your life!! Don’t change ANYTHING OF YOU

  24. Hi Amber ! Those photos are wonderful, so is your house !
    Don’t pay attention to stupid comments, there’s always people on the Interner to pretend they know everything better than you.. Carry on posting what you love and what inspires you because it makes you happy and your true fans will love it !
    In France, we truly loooooooove you !
    Xoxo from France !

  25. Lovely apartment, especially A’s room! I can’t waait to see how your house turns out! I think I’ll want to just come live with you 😀

    Love,
    Dunja

    1. It means she got it for free in exchange for showing a picture of it on her blog.

  26. Your apartment is beautiful! I love the aesthetic you went with! xoxox

  27. Your apartment is absolutely perfect! I love seeing all of the pictures of your family! I’m sorry for all the hate! 🙂

  28. It was hard for me to even look at the furniture (or bookshelves!) when Rosie’s pigtails are so cute!!! Thanks for sharing!

  29. Love it! I am so intrigued by NY spaces since our home in the country is so different 🙂 thanks for sharing!

  30. Love your post!! Seriously adore the way you spend time with your children and husband, i think that is so important… more than books 😉 Keep being real, we love ya in Texas!

  31. ahhh!!! I’ve been waiting for this post since you moved and was so excited when I found out you were posting it today! I am OBSESSED with that play room and all the fun art on the walls in the living room! and rosie’s pigtails… I could die <3

  32. I’m a huge fan of you, your family and your apartment. It’s so cute. Haters gonna hate!! You are adorable.

  33. This is so cute!!! I’ll be in freshman in college but I’m obsessed with your decor and wardrobe. Love getting ideas for my future 🙂

    PS– I wouldn’t have even noticed the bookshelves, that’s actually so funny that people are commenting! I’d rather have the Chanel book in my living room any day!!!

  34. Whoever thinks you would even have time to read books is crazy! (I just saw your snapchat). I have a 3 year old and a 6 month old. I only read kid books. AND if I did have time, I would read books on my Kindle. Who has paper books anymore anyways?! Also, do you have a 2 or a 3 bedroom? Just curious where your kids sleep. We have a 2 bedroom and I am dying to get my daughter to her own room so I can sleep better. 🙁

  35. Oh my gosh – Your apartment is gorgeous! Our apartment was soooo tiny when we lived in the city, but now that we are gone I find myself missing it somedays. When we first moved to the city we made friends with this super sweet family and we went over to their apartment for a play date and they had a 3,000 sq ft apartment on West 81st and I walked in and was like, “Wait? This is where you live? Oh my gosh – I would never leave Manhattan if this was my home!” LOL

    And rosie’s pigtails are the CUTEST!

  36. Absolutely love your style! Such an inviting space for your little family! Love you guys!

  37. Seriously ! Why would people care about books ? Haha … I don’t have any but I read a book a week … on my kindle !!! Cute apartment !!!

  38. love love love!!! Omggg obsessed with your apartment. I love how calm and chic everything looks. Also, love the upholstery on your chair & loveseat thing that accompanies your table! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  39. Your apartment is beautiful and I’m in love with your hairstyle…it’s so khaleesi inspired!! 🙂

  40. Wow, it’s so crazy people are so worried about books! I actually store mine under our couch because all the different covers can be an eye sore. Our styles seem very similar, so of coarse I am in love with everything!! Here’s a little picture from my place and trust me Amber, you are one of the greatest mom i’v ever seen!!!

  41. Love your apartment! Such great style, love your family you and David seem like such great parents! I especially enjoy your travel vlogs!

  42. Amber, what a beautiful home and family!!! So completely goo goo eyes for all of your decor! Love the bookcase and think your choice of decoration for it is perfect! X

  43. Such an inspirational space! Love reading your blog all the way from Adelaide, Australia X

  44. Your apartment is lovely. Amber, you are a sweet vulnerable soul. Don’t listen to the negative things people look to say to you. I can’t tell you the times I have gone on beautiful cruises or high end hotels to read the most horrendous reviews about them. And I wound up have in fantastic vacations. People who are miserable do this sort of thing. Keep posting and blogging and sharing. It lifts my heart and is my *feel-good* moment of the day when I get to see your little ones on snap chat. You are a fantastic mother, too, btw. Thanks for allowing us a look into your life’s window. You are an inspiration and a role model to many young women.

  45. First off why are people so worried about how many books you own and about the bookshelf?? ? These are lovely pics of your apartment and beautiful family! Since pics were taken in their home its going to be tidy and things are put away… Like books!! ? I love your blog Amber! ?

  46. I think you are awesome! Watching you and David with your beautiful kids is inspiring! Thank you for sharing your life with us!

  47. Really love how you all look so comfy and “at home”! I absolutely love the style of your apartment, the layout, and the use of your decor is super creative!

  48. You apartment is so cute and I love how open you are about sharing all the details! Those people commenting about the books must not know about minimalist decor.

  49. First off, I LOVE YOUR APT. so so so cute !!! & I love the bookshelves!!!! Also PELASE do a meetup soon!! I’m going to New York for my 16th birthday this weekend (11-14) ah.

  50. your apartment is one of the cutest things I have ever seen!!!! how long did it take you to put those rooms together?

  51. LOVE! The simplicity and colors in your apartment are amazing! Will you ever do a tour of your bedroom? I am currently trying to redecorate my room and I am struggling to find a cute comforter & throw. Any ideas?

  52. It’s so funny that people think bookshelves are only for books. And that if you don’t have books on your bookshelves you don’t own books at all! I’m not sure why there is so many haters out there. I think your apartment is so cute! Your bookless bookshelf is GOALS! 🙂

  53. Love your apt. and decor ! Love all the mixes: gold w white, cozy rugs and leather, soft turquoises, and pops of color and a bit of black… It’s so fresh feeling and open and modern and retro too. Thank you for sharing it with us 🙂 l’m also admiring that wondering lamp with the gold hand-standing figure and crystal base w dark shade. Can you please share where one might find it ?

  54. I think that you have’t seen my comment so I hope is ol wo repost it here.. I understood that you was pregnant very soon atfer wedding , am I right? Well if I am , I sweeaar that you are made to be a mom!! You aren’t that kind of mom ” Don’t get messy/ Don’t touch that”. You are damn good mother! A relaxed mother! Love that ❤ My mother died when I was 3 and I don’t knkw how is to have a mother but you kids are so blessed with you! I’m 32 weeks pregnant with a girl. I hope to be a splendid mom as you are. I will name my girl Amber :☺

  55. I love the idea of having a bench or a love seat as one of the seats at the dining room table! Your apartment looks amazing (and that Be Happy My Babies sign is such a great reminder of what should be primary in life) <3

  56. Hi Amber!
    I love your wall color and have similar light in my home. Do you mind sharing the color? Thank you!

  57. Lovely, though I don’t think I could ever keep a bookshelf that empty to save my life…

  58. I love your apartment!!! It looks so good! 🙂

    1. Not sure where the protein comment came from haha! I must’ve pasted that on accident sorry!

  59. I absolutely love your “be happy my babies” sign in the playroom! and Rosie’s pigtails are too cute ?

  60. I CANNOT handle Rosie’s piggies!!!!! She’s the cutest!! Love your apartment…you can’t beat NYC or those views!! <3

  61. Some very cute pieces and adorable kiddos — but where do you store your BOOKS, if not on your bookshelves? Are you & David readers?

    1. Thanks! This is only one room in our apartment, we don’t keep our books in the main room. They are stored in misc. places around the apartment. The books I am reading are on my dresser and/or in my purse. David is currently into audio books. He just finished Wool and Ready Player One. xo

  62. So beautiful! There is so much light in every room!
    I also converted my dinnig room in a common area because is so big and also it is such a waste. We never really use it!

    I love how Rosie looks with pig tails, SO CUTE!!! and A is looking like such a big boy.
    Xx

    1. Yes we totally lucked out on light!!! Each room (except the kitchen!) has great light! I love it. And I agree, dining areas in a small space are a total waste! Plus David and I are guilty of eating on the coffee table mostly ha! xoxoxo

    1. Yes we will be taking everything with us!! Will probably place the art work in my office in our new home!

  63. beautiful, amber! my husband and i are considering purchasing the same couch from article. we first saw it on your blog last year and loved it! would you recommend it and are you happy with the quality? how does it do with the babies?

    1. Oh I love it!!! Leather is the only way to go with kids. I don’t want to be the mom who is worrying if my kids are on the couch or eating a snack on there. So I love it!!!

  64. what a beautiful place, Amber! It’s very “modern retro” I would say! Combination of gold, white and glass with pops of color here and there looks the best. You guys have a lovely taste. I’d just asked about a tour a couple of posts ago and little did I know that it’ll come so soon! Thank you so much for sharing. I truly cannot wait to see your house!

  65. Your apartment is gorgeous! Were is Rosie’s dress from? She is just so cute! Both your kiddos are!

  66. AHHH the kids are growing up so fast ? Your apartment is so adorable! I love the design and pieces you used to furnish the living area. I cannot wait to see what you guys plan on doing with your new house in Arizona ?

  67. Hi Amber,
    Very pretty but kind of curious if you really cleaned up before this shoot or if you truly do not have any need for storage in your living room?? I feel like your shelves are so lonely!!

  68. Gorgeous! Where is that black sign with the white letters in the playroom from?

  69. SO beautiful! Would love to know how you keep it so tidy and also how you organize all your clothes/closet space. I find it a struggle to organize all my things in my big city apartment!

  70. beautiful!!! i wouldn’t want to ever leave your apartment either. love the playroom <3

  71. Your skirt is seriously adorable! I would’ve never thought to pair it with a graphic tee

  72. WOW! So much c/o stuff! You are soooooooo lucky!
    The shelves are so bare though! Do you worry about the kids trying to climb them? We need to get you guys some books or plants or something!

  73. Hi – your spaces are lovely. Where is that blanket on top of the reading nook mattress from?

  74. You must be happy to have about the cutiest kids in the whole wide world:-) and a nice living room too;-)

  75. Aww my goodness I’m in love! ! SOO adorable and the playroom is very similar to how I want to do my sons room when we move! I love how it’s comfy and laid back but yet stylish and modern! Side note, ok I’m dyeing over Rosie’s pigtails lately! She is such a doll<3

  76. What is your secret to getting everyone to smile, and look at the camera at the same time? Haha. Love it. Beautiful family and home!

  77. Wow your apartment looks amazing! Really love all the details of it, and how you and your family have been making it your own home. The play room looks really big and spacious for the two of them to play around. Thanks for sharing all these photos and the link. You look lovely as always!
