Fancy Photos

For those of you who have ever been interested in seeing pictures of my apartment that were NOT taken on an iPhone, my friend Emily over at The Anna Delores Blog has displayed a nice collection today.  You can see them all here.  I have a few comments, though.  They are:

One – while we did drink all the gin out of those Bombay Sapphire bottles pictured above, I SWEAR it was over a (slightly) long(ish) period of time.  I’m saving the empty bottles for a DIY project.  I just didn’t want you to think that we constantly have 6 giant bottles of liquor in storage in our bedroom.  We keep those somewhere else.  Somewhere no one can easily see.

Second – these pictures were taken spontaneously, so my white glove test was not performed beforehand.  I swear that Emily must have nicely Photoshopped out the dust.  If I’d have been properly prepared for company (like I should ALWAYS be according to Better Housekeeping circa 1955), that place would have shined like the top of the Chrysler Building.  (Side note – I would have totally nailed that role…).

Third – yes, I did win a photo shoot and actually had my pictures taken.  Here’s my favorite.  I’m sure it’s not a coincidence that it’s one where you can’t really make out my body or my face.  It’s just so artistic!  Needless to say, I joined a gym tout de suite (which I’ll fill you guys in on later).  But if you ever find yourself in need of a photographer, I highly recommend Emily.  HIGHLY.

I’m thinking I should contact Apartment Therapy for an official tour.  What do you guys think?

    I loved seeing photos of your apartment! I’m one of those oddballs who wonders what people’s living spaces look like so this was a nice post. Love your penny wall, too , I’ve never seen anything like it!

    And Apartment Therapy? Go for it! They’d love you.

      That must make me an oddball too because I’m the exact same way. Are we stalkers in the making? Regardless, I’m glad you like it! I’m so happy I was able to have “real” photographs taken. I feel a little famous…

    WOW!!! Your apartment is truly the best place ever. I loved the pictures. Now, come to DC and decorate for me. Please.

    And please tell me I was the one who gave the book “All My Friends Are Dead.” I have one and it is in my powder room. Great minds think alike.

      Thanks! Alas, you are not the one. Ryan and I saw it in a gift shop and knew we had to make it ours. HILARIOUS. There’s another one called “All My Friends are Still Dead.” Or something like that.

    Emily is an amazingly gifted photographer! And your apartment is gorgeous. I would high-tail it to Apartment Therapy, stat. I very much enjoyed taking a peek at your place!
