Fabulous K
Hi, everyone! I’m Kelly of Fabulous K, and I am beyond thrilled that Paloma has asked me to participate in her ‘Dream Home’ series.
When I think about what my dream home would look like, most people think big, beautiful house…but for me, it’s all about location. I dream of having an apartment in NYC; the hustle & bustle inspires me like no other. So, let’s get started on the ‘tour’, shall we?
First things first, I would greet my guests with a colorful yellow door.  It’s such a fun way to say hello, don’t you think?
The color wouldn’t stop at the door, because I’d paint my foyer a bold hue (like the pink below.)  I love the unexpectedness of it and think the gold touches add sophistication to the small space.
Now on to the living room we go!  Although this room would be white, I would tie in pops of color with art and golden touches. Ample seating for friends and entertaining is a must as well!
For the kitchen, I’d have white marble, subway tiles and lots of open shelving.
Since it’s an NYC apartment, my dining room would actually be a cute little breakfast nook in the kitchen.
I would carry the marble and subway tile into the bathroom…
paired with Hinson’s ‘Fireworks’ wallpaper.
I work from home, so as far as my office goes it needs to be functional and stylish. Lot’s of work space and storage is a must!
Even though the apartment is rather colorful and eclectic, I’d keep the bedroom neutral with crisp white bedding, an upholstered headboard, and a classic pattern on the walls.
Of course, no NYC dream apartment of mine would be complete without a rooftop deck and a cozy couch to sip my coffee and read blog on in the morning.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my apartment daydream; it’s been fun dreaming it all up.  Thanks again to Paloma for having me today!

  1. FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

    I like the fact the proportions are realistic. We all dream with HUGE houses, and I like to see this one is a bit different, since it’s an apartment. The big thing here is the city, huh? 🙂

    Love the kitchen also! Cute, cozy, cool!

  2. I am crazy about these rooms. I love cozy and small…so much so that I am downsizing. You do go through a stage of wanting a larger home, especially when raising a family. However, empty nesters want to go back to their honeymoon phase with a smaller home. You can see how small my new home is on my blog. It is 2,700 square feet. I am leaving a home that is over 4,000…I got very tired of losing my DH in that house.
