A Totally Vogue First Apartment

I'm sure many of you have seen this lovely little apartment featured in Traditional Home but I just cant get enough of how adorable it is soooo here you have it! I've always been drawn to tiny spaces and love how obtainable and cozy that can be.

The apartment belongs to recent college grad and Teen Vogue writer Lauren McGrath. Her and her mother interior designer Suzanne McGrath decorated it together! Suzanne used to work for Martha Stewart so you know the woman is crazy talented/ creative.

Lauren says that she always knew that they would decorate her first place together so she actually started collecting things while she was still in college. Smart right!?!

Lauren modernized her great-grandparents’ dresser with fresh white paint and new hardware she found in a sale basket at Anthropologie. Score!!

I personally would have continued the curtain panels into the kitchen just to give the room a unifed look... Although this kitchen nook sure is cute!

This is Laurens cozy bedroom, how adorable is that Venetian mirror, and the Lucite stool!

Here is the mother daughter dynamic duo, in Laurens little nest!
