Welcome to our new, fancy-schmancy, fine n’ dandy Wordpress blog. We’re glad you’re here! Please, put your feet up, pour yourself a glass of scotch– it’s been a long day, you deserve it– and stay a while.
Our names are Daniel and Eva. We are both students at New York University (Class of ’13), and we’re embarking on a big adventure: moving into our VERY FIRST NEW YORK CITY APARTMENT. Which will be the subject of this blog. After a harrowing year of dorm living with all its stock glamor– no kitchens, roaches, drunks, and perhaps worst of all, ugly furniture– we decided enough was enough and it was time to make it on our own.
But we’re babies! For the most part, this is all new for us. We’re both passionate about design, so we’re determined that this won’t be just another college apartment. While the shelves-crafted-from-stolen-bricks-and-plywood-planks seems, to some, like a rite of passage, that’s a step we’re not only willing but determined to skip. We’re also on a budget. And we’re not afraid of a little hard work. Sound like fun to you? Us too.
So we invite you to join us on this journey. No doubt it will be full of firsts, hopefully it will be brimming with good design and ideas, and just maybe the occasional disagreement!
