First things first – Merry Christmas everyone! We’re busy enjoying some quality family time, so here’s a pre-prepared post for everyone to enjoy in the meantime:
The other day we set out to clean up our poor little iBook’s overloaded hard-drive. It quickly turned from a mass-file-deleting to a mass-let’s-reminisce-about-this-and- then-keep-it-for-the-memories. So, the bad news is that the hard-drive didn’t get much relief. The good news is that we found fun things to share.
The best of our re-discoveries was a series of video clips. Between the many clips of puppy-sized Burger we actually found a few home-related ones. Our favorites being video tours of some of our old NYC apartments that Sherry had shot to send to her best friend who lived in Iowa. Now they’re here for your viewing pleasure.
The first of our three Pre-Young House videos is Sherry’s Studio Apartment in Greenwich Village, New York City. Keep your eyes and ears peeled (ears peeled??) for these fun things:
- How Sherry got some color on her walls without giving the landlord a heart attack
- Her first taste of defining spaces with different flooring
- Sherry already talking like a bargain-hunter
- Her former impression of what “a lot of storage” in a kitchen means (hysterical)
Some people might think that’s such a small apartment but since I’m from nyc, I understand how people sacrifice space for location. The place looks great!
So true! It’s really funny because it felt like a palace after sharing tiny apartments with three girls for a few years!
such a cute little apartment! same size as my first place…sometimes I miss that kind of simplicity :)
Thanks for sharing Sherry! I also live in a small space in New York. I need help decorating. I was wondering if you can give me a few ideas? Thanks so much! Reese
You’re in luck! We actually offer decorating consultations and we’d be happy to gussy up your pad with you. Just have a look at both of our decorating packages and feel free to let us know how we can help!
really slow day at work = lauren working her way from the first YHL post. This video made me giggle! Slash reminds me of my studio. I totally get it. I’m over in manhattan beach, CA and having a bomb location definitely outweighs missing out on space (at least for now as a solo 26yr old). This has inspired me to video my pad! It’ll be great to look back on when I’m mature (maybe wrong word choice there given Sherry’s humor :) ) and have a house!
SO FUN to go through your old stuff and see how far you guys have come! love love
Aw thanks Lauren! It’s fun to see comments from back in the archives! Have fun videoing your place!
