Time to take you inside our new Houston apartment! We’ve had so much fun designing our two-bedroom, two-bath (that feels like a palace compared to my previous 350-square-foot Chicago studio, ha!) and making it feel like the two of us.
It’s the first place Ilir and I have ever lived in together, so not only was this an exciting cross-country move and new adventure for us, but it has also been our first time designing a home together.
We have SO much left to do still! We have furniture yet to be delivered, art and pictures to hang, empty corners to fill, and so much more, but, I am excited to finally give you a peek inside our Houston apartment.
