JennifHsieh is a space for my rambling thoughts and snaps of my everyday style. I'm based in Astoria, Queens and I share a home with my two derpy cats and my equally derpy fiancé.

Apartment Lust

Now that I'm currently apartment hunting with Jeremy,  I am craving a clean, new space to make all our own. It's different living with roommates and mixing and matching everyone's things. With Jeremy it'll be nice decorating a place together to make it feel like home for both of us. A place that feels like us.

I think Jeremy's a little sick of me showing him all the interior inspiration I'm pinning (actually, I know he's sick of it) but I just can't help myself. We just put in an application for a really tiny apartment so I keep looking up ways to make a small space seem spacious - it's going to be a serious struggle. I've recently been loving the Urbanara catalogues for bedroom and living room inspiration. They specialize in homeware which is something I don't mind splurging a bit on for quality pieces that'll last me for years. Most of their pieces are classic and timeless, which is great since I don't want to go too crazy.

My goal is to keep everything super simple and stop hoarding so many things (it's hard for me to let go of things with memories tied to them - also known as everything). I read somewhere that having a lot of reflective surfaces and white furniture allows the space to seem less cluttered so you know I'll be hitting up the whites. The main thing I'm going to have to cut down on are my clothes, since apparently Jeremy needs closet space too. Who knew.

But in the meantime, let me just drop these images I'm lusting after right here (I'm going to be investing in a lot of throws, obviously).

All images c/o Urbanara. 


  1. love the messy cozy feel of this!! :)

  2. love your concept. the throws are so you, can't wait for the results :)

  3. The last picture makes me want to bed now :P i am so excited for you two, i hope you guys find a perfect nest for you both. I am waiting for a room tour post later! Cheers (:


  4. Love it! I'm liking that aesthetic of the white and throws ideas. I've been planning my apartment decorating for the fall (for my room since I'll still have a roommate) and it's going to be so much fun! Good luck on your application!
