My Little Piece of NYC

The search continues for our little piece of NYC. Over the weekend we stumbled upon an apartment that is definitely worth seeing twice. It's quintessential New York- exposed brick possibly pre-war which would be my dream. It has gorgeous worn hardwoods (forget the parquet!), marvelous molding, and even a fireplace. Decorating dreams are already dancing through my head! I must know, as a renter, would you paint darlings?

Such a cute apt!!!

Best of luck with the search! The first thing I did when after I signed the lease was have the management company paint it for me! If they haven't already they are probably going to have to paint before you move in, ask if you can give them your own paint.

How exciting! I bet it's the one - it sounds pretty awesome! I would paint if it would help the place, I mean, you want to feel happy in there! It just depends on the size of the job I guess!

I DIE for this apartment! You must show us what you do to the place. I agree to paint the new digs if you will be there for awhile.

Question though, are you leaving the fork?

I have embarked on the INCREDIBLY daunting task of apartment hunting in West Village...such small bedrooms! My gramercy apartment has its' charm (& no lack of closets!) but the West Village scene + ambiance cannot be beat. Hope the search goes well!

Yes, I would paint. However, I wouldn't need to if I had some fabulous colorful artwork to hang on the walls or maybe the use of "fabric"... I'm sure one day soon you'll find your absolutely fabulous "piece of NYC".
