House Beautiful : At Home with Sarah and Larry

I am here to cover for my hiatus via this amazing home tour. I fell in love with Larry's beautiful apartment and his design sensibilities. I requested him for a sneak peek and he promptly responded to my request. My bad, that I took a very long time in sharing this lovely home...So, here I go...

Love the warm wood with a bright white accessory

The home owners:
Larry, a Project designer at a Denver/Boulder based Architecture firm, shares this beautiful apartment his girlfriend, Sarah, a student in Public Health. 

The building
Larry says" The building is very bizarre; it was built in the early 1900s as an enlargement of 2 houses that were originally on the property. Every apartment is unique, with odd floor plans. The neighborhood is one of Denver's older ones, and is fantastic - we live one block from one of the most beautiful parks in the city and close to grocery stores and restaurants."

The 1100 s.ft, single bedroom apartment has been done up predominately in mid-century style with carefully collected danish modern furniture. Larry and Sarah have decorated their place with pieces picked via craigslist, thrift stores, estate sales and vintage/antique shops. Larry enjoys repairing and restoring pieces. He also custom built their dining table.

They have also blended some smaller things from places like Ikea and Target. Modest incomes make them work on a tight budget. This also helps them acquire things relatively slowly over time. Sarah loves plants, especially succulents, so those play a big role in the apartment as well.

The clean and simple approach to decorating has resulted in a clutter free space, serene, and minimalist apartment.  Cramming too many items would have made it look like a vintage furniture store. The apartment is well lit and spacious which adds to the whole charm of this yummy space. 

And finally, a quick peek into the kitchen :)

I could live here anyday :)
