Home Sweet Home, The Skinny

New York Style Living

New York loft apartments have that cool look to them. Exposed brick, comfy seating and fancy pants lighting. If you don’t have the space, or the exposed brick, fear not. Here are some New York style bits and pieces you can buy to add that city feel to your living space.


Whether you have an abundance of natural light or not, the way you light your living space is key. New York homes usually have huge windows to let the light stream in. These three floor lamps will all help to light your living space, and they’ll add that New York feel at the same time.LightingAlfred Tripod Floor Lamp | Dash Floor Lamp | Hektar Floor Lamp


Now you’ve lit your room you need to add some seating that’s both comfy and cool. If you can, invest in leather sofas and armchairs. They will last much longer than fabric. I love the relaxed feel of this armchair and both the sofas.SofaLeather Armchair | Landskrona Chaise Lounges & Sofa Stockholm Sofa

Coffee Tables

A coffee table is a must have in any living room. To add a touch of New York opt for ones that are more rustic than classic.

Wall Prints

Dressing your wall with prints will add that designer touch. Either go for a selection of different prints or opt for one large print. All the prints below are from Society6.


Other bits and pieces 

Add other items to your living space that will really make it feel like home. It could be a candle, clock, books, or a throw in the arm of your couch. I love all these bits and pieces below.
