home envy

while wandering around some hip and trendy neighborhoods on foot a couple days ago (while the weather was nice and balmy), i had a marvelous time peeking inside fancy townhouses, studio apartments and lofts of the well-to-do in the district. while it was dark outside, many of these homes had their lights on and windows open … i know, i know, it sounds a little sketchy of me to be eavesdropping this way, but you know you do it too!


although i didn’t have my camera with me – and I would have felt a little weird taking pictures of the places – i was inspired by some of these completely modern, completely comfortable-looking, completely well-put-together abodes.

online (on an architectural firm’s site, in the new york times’ home&garden section, on blogs and in online european traveling hubs) i found some photos of apartments, studios, homes, hotels and swanky hostels with the same appeal.

someday i want to live like this. 

enjoy …
