To walk away from your day-to-day life for 16-months, you need to tie up a lot of loose ends but we’re getting there. Quit job—check. Sell car—check. Find new health insurance—check. Rent apartment? This remains the one major missing piece before we take our honeymoon around the world. The hope is to rent our apartment fully furnished because 1. Putting stuff in storage is a pain. 2. Someone is bound to appreciate all my hard decorating work!
For anyone moving to the New York City area temporarily, who doesn’t want the typical box filled with industrial-grade furniture and craves an inviting, thoughtfully designed space, we want you to have this apartment. Everything in our home was chosen with great love and care (ex. we lived in camping chairs until we found our dream couch. When we couldn’t find the right kitchen island, we built it ourselves.) This furniture doesn’t deserve to be covered up with dropcloth; it deserves to someone who could love it as much as we do (or even be half as obsessed).
