emily's apt on design*sponge

Hey Friends! Just a quick post to mention that the lovely Design*Sponge graciously featured my (Emily's) Jersey City apartment! I've been meaning to shoot our home of 4 years for about 3 years now, so it's such a relief to check it off the list! We thought we'd share the photos here and you can also read more about it here (and see the floor plan if you so desire). Enjoy! (OH and in case you didn't know, there's two of us that make up Rehabitat, the other being Diane. She also has a beautiful home so we should work on sharing it on the blog too!) 

rethink! your bookshelves.

Diane's master bedroom shelves

If you've ever looked up bookshelves on Pinterest, you find some really beautiful ideas. I particularly love the shelves that are heavy on the books. Although a few hints of character here and there don't hurt either. Add a few frames, some artwork, a plant or three and voila! fresh new bookshelves for everyone!

rehab box: b&a master bedroom

Talk about a long and narrow bedroom! This special lady (and her husband, of course) allowed us to totally make over the most challenging room in the house using our rehab box. She's especially talented in DIY projects, so we accomplished a total makeover with existing furniture and more elbow grease than $$$. Check out the before and afters!
