remember last week, how i told you i would be sharing about each room from the catalog shoot with the land of nod?  well, lets start with NYC, shall we?

NYC Land of Nod_lalalovely

here we have a pretty small apartment shared by 5 people.  some great tips for small spaces and big style are :  use multi functional pieces, like the cameo sleeper sofa, which is so perfect for guests.  add extra seating without taking up extra space.  the pull up a pouf works perfect for this room.  find stylish storage options.  the district 2 storage set is a real looker, if you ask me.

when sharing a room, i think it is great to keep a few things the same for continuity and then personalize.  for instance, we chose for the boys to have the same as you wish headboard and then went for a bit drama with the girl’s bed. also samsies are, similar blankets at the foot of the bed, the same gumball lamp and nightstands and everyone also has their name painted above the beds.  however, the artwork is scattered about in a pattern all of it’s own.

if you love the look of a chalkboard wall but are afraid to commit, or if you are renting, these chalkboard stick ons are such a great idea.

I think this looks so great and switching the headboards is a fabulous idea. I also really like the chevron rug in the living area. This is a great example showing you can have just as much fun when styling smaller spaces.I have seen cupboards turned into additional office spaces before which actually worked well!!

that is such a great idea too, thanks for sharing! xo .t

I lovee love what you did. The living room especially is my favorite– you’ve definitely maximized the space, but haven’t crossed over in the land of looking cluttered and cramped. Perfectly balanced and situated!

oh, thank you, so much! xo .t

I`ve seen this apartment photos few days ago and loved them. They are so amazing, and the place is so beautifuly decorated that looking at theme again was a real freast for the eye.

LOVE these spaces! Any idea what the paint color on the walls of the kids room is called? I’m on the hunt for just that shade!


commented on February 13th 2013 at 1:18pm

What fabric pattern did you use for the girl’s headboard? I’ve seen it somewhere else before and I LOVE it, but can’t find the name!


replied on February 13th, 2013 at 2:22pm

I know this is an older post but where is the wallpaper in livingroom from? Love!


replied on September 22nd, 2014 at 8:29am

hi tammy, it’s actually not wallpaper. it is a photo broken up into layers (in photoshop) and then printed on blue print paper at kinkos. i need to do a DIY post on it, sometime. xo . t

Love this. Using it as inspiration for my daughter’s ”big girl room”. Any chance you could point me to where the pink duvet/comforter is from?

Thank you so much!

It’s from the Land of Nod :) I don’t think they make that one any longer? But, they have a lot of cute bright pinks ones… I love their velvet snug as a bug one & the pink neon sprinkles one Good luck!
