sanctuary {apartment inspiration}

For those of you who have followed This Time Tomorrow for a little while now, and perhaps saw my last few apartments captured in a variety of home tours, you know that I love a good clean, white room, with black and gold accents. And at this point, if you unpacked my boxes with me this weekend (speaking of, anyone wanna help?), you’d find I’ve accumulated more than my fair share of trinkets, statuettes, frames and general oddities in some gold or crisp black finish. Guilty as charged.
While I still have an affinity for that somewhat eclectic glam approach, I’ve been craving to mix things up lately and start fresh. Before leaving San Francisco, I purged a lot of furniture and home decor items that I found I just wasn’t in love with anymore. Items that just didn’t make me smile as much as they used to or pieces of furniture that felt like it was more of an obligation to bring and not a-can’t-live-without sensation. 
So what’s on the clean slate, you ask? Lately, I’ve been drawn to more moody spaces: accent walls in deep blues and greys, rustic, unfinished wood furniture, rich leather chairs that you can sink into and even considering venturing into wallpaper territory (the oversized, art-like kind, of course).
Here are a few pins I’ve been going back to lately for inspiration. I’m excited to dig into the local flea market scene here in New York and slowly craft and build out my little nook here in the West Village.

  1. I love the opportunity to start fresh that moving provides. And I love the impact large spaces of bold color can have too. Before my son was born I was inspired to paint two of my living room walls a dark teal. I loved it, it's bright and happier than the drab camel colored walls. The key, I think, though is to be sure you have enough light, to counter the darkness. Undoubtedly whatever you decide on will look great. Have fun!

  2. Beautiful spaces! I was going through the pics, and I got to #9, I was like, Hey, that's Kelly Framel's place isn't it. I remembered seeing it on The Glamourai. I clicked on the picture and sure enough, there she and Zach are on the right bedside table. Such a cute couple!

    Krista, it has been so fun watching your life in San Francisco. Now I'm looking forward to your life in NYC. If you ever travel to Hong Kong, I'd love to host you.

    All the best settling in!!

  3. Blue accent walls will look amazing in spaces that play with lots of wooden furniture. Mixing it with a bit of grey should give it a modern kick as well, although that shouldn't stop you from playing with colors. In any way, the rug at the end of your post looks gorgeous. Thanks for sharing that, Krystal! All the best to you! 🙂

  4. I love the mood of your apartment inspirations! All that blue looks refreshing. In my opinion, pairing it up with the right amount of grey will give you the coolest apartment ever. Hahaha! In any way, thanks for sharing those stunning inspirations, Krystal. All the best to you!
