A New View

Over the weekend Lukus and I finally had a chance to do a walk through of our new apt… empty and perfectly ours.

Unfortunately we won’t be moving in for a bit (our furniture is now making its way from LA after spending the last few months in storage).  But that doesn’t mean we couldn’t sit and plan layouts and figure out paint and other nesting type activities.

And, because my obsessions are North On Harper’s obsessions, you can expect to see the projects moving forward.

But for now, I want to brag.  Brag with the beautiful view from our new roof deck!

Glad the sun has once again risen over Chicago.


Tell me, how did you spend your weekend?


  1. Wow! Oh my goodness, that is an absolutely amazing view. If I had that view from my living space, that space would never get decorated because I would be way too busy staring out at that view. In fact, I think you should remove all of your walls and just put in floor-to-ceiling windows because that is all the decor you need.

  2. Beautiful!
    Honestly I spent the weekend loving my new dryer and gearing up for a very busy week ahead. {Oh my, and it’s here!}

  4. WOW!!! Love it!!! Can’t wait to see more pictures of the newly decorated apartment. See you Thursday, maybe???

  5. Oh. My. Gosh. Its so stunning, lucky you and with summer coming up – you are the winner!

  6. I love, love your view! Definitely worth bragging about! I spent my weekend working (got to love a tourism-related job!) so my weekend is *now*. Unfortunately, so far all I’ve done is run errands!

  7. Wow gorgeous view Alexis–predicting you’ll be having some fun rooftop get-togethers this summer! I’m sure when all is moved in this is going to be a wonderful place for you!
