Little Corners: For Me, For You

Opening the doors to her L.A. apartment is today’s Little Corners’ hostess, Kate Miss of For Me, For You blog and jewelry renown!

I’m a restless creature in many aspects of my life, and my home is no exception, if not the biggest victim/benefiter (depending on your point of view) of this side of my personality. Everything is in a constant state of flux and never quite finished. Therefore I love the idea of just showing you a few of my favorite corners of my apartment because that’s what I’m all about: perfecting little spots, rather than entirely decorating me home. Sure, I’d love for it to be entirely decorated, but that’s not the reality of the situation most of the time. Someday.

 

 

Living in LA means reaping the benefits of the sunshine, and I’m lucky enough to live in a classic old Hollywood apartment (owned by Clark Gable back in the day!) with tons of French windows, which means abundant light. Which means my love of plants has turned into a full-blown obsession. I can’t stop buying them and my boyfriend is no help as he loves them as well. It started with one plant table and has now grown to three different clusters in the apartment that get the best rays of sun. I like keeping it a little wild and full, it’s the first thing people comment on when they walk into my apartment: “Dang, plants!” Luckily our cat Wendy has zero interest in nibbling on them.

 

 

some details: kitchen posters by Reference Library, all furniture is vintage except the dining table, which is self made with hairpin legs, art above the cat + chair by William Steinman, prints on the white shelf are by Prismatic Print Shop and Carolin Loebbert, the tree poster peeking out in one of the plant photos was limited edition with Amelia’s magazine and not for sale anymore! My favorite places to buy plants in LA: on the east side – Sunset Nursery, on the west side – Lucky Plant.

    Gorgeous space! Plants definitely add life and freshness and make home feel like home. The table I featured in my latest post “the {we}ekend” would look so cool against the black and white checkered floor!

    My cat looks exactly like yours (except she is a little fatter… OK a lot fatter).
