Living Room Decor in Jersey City

Our Jersey City Apartment Tour + Decor

I don’t know if it’s because we’re kind of in housing limbo as we search for a new apartment, or because 95% of our belongings are packed up on a ship in the middle of the Atlantic, but I REALLY miss our apartment in Jersey City! It was so bright, so airy, and so well organized, not to mention the rent was super affordable! We lived in our apartment for three years, and definitely curated the space to fit our needs over that time. Although we bid our apartment farewell a few weeks ago, I wanted to pay homage to our home and share some of the decor and organizational tips from that space.

  1. This is a museum. Your stuff are on the cargo on the way. You need to be patient ast this might take you up to 3 to 4 months, you never know. Am sure you’ll miss Ikea as I also miss Ikea which is not present here. However, you can find good locally made items here. Good luck

  2. I love everything in your apartment and I can’t wait to see the home decor. The baby room decorations is going to be off the roof. ???
