A stylish spot in Center Square

Kim's apartmentKim Dunham, of Happy Accidents and gnome hunting fame, recently had her Center Square apartment featured on the design site Apartment Therapy.

We're big fans of Kim's style. If we hadn't met her at the AOA birthday party, we're not sure we would have believed she actually exits outside the dreamy world she depicts on her blog. Nobody, we thought, could be so effortlessly stylish.

Kim's posted a more extensive photo tour of her apartment on Flickr.

I like the comments on AT about the curtain between the kitchen and bathroom; her friends will tell you it's a serious situation :)
No pics of the Goldilocks bed though.
She always seems to pull it off effortlessly.
A long time ago, when I first met the K, I told her: I love the apartment, but you are making your stalker's life wayyy too easy (strike #1, #2, #3, #4). Congrats Kim, on a whole new level :)

Oh thanks guys! You're sweet. I am a little bit obsessed with interior design, etc., so making it onto Apartment Therapy was great. :)

My apartment is teeny-tiny, so I've tried to make living there as pleasant as possible.

S: You love using my bathroom, I know you wouldn't want it any other way. ;)

There are pics of my bed in the Flickr set. And that feet stalker must've grown tired of me because I haven't heard from him in a while.

Congrats Kim, this is awesome!

You really have a great prespective in general, and your blog always brings me a smile. Plus I'd love for my pictures to come out the way yours do!

Watch out for that fng weirdo.. seriously creeeeepy!

Love it, Kim. Well done.


How exciting! Looks like a whole new career waiting for you...maybe you should go on Bravo's Top Design!

The only thing quelling my decorating-envy is that Kim and I have several posessions in common. Mine are covered in cat vomit and dust, granted, but it's the same stuff, regardless.

I seriously love it!

One question... where did the door go? I can't imagine that storing an entire door would be particularly easy in a studio.

this is so great!

kim's place looks so clean and homey. i am inspired to paint all of our black furniture white.

[not sure that i would be able to pee in that bathroom until i work through my shy bladder issues]

ugh. it was a huge, very heavy, very solid door. needless to say i needed some help removing - and moving it - to the hall, where it has been ever since. right outside my door is the hall/entranceway, and under the staircase is where i stashed the door. (you can see it in this picture. my bike is out in the hall, too). if that hadn't been an option, i probably would have removed the door from the building and stored it in my parent's garage or something.

haha renee, can you tell i like white? :) and there are days when it's still not white enough for me...for example, the kitchen floor drives me nuts sometimes - it's very dark. but i guess it could be worse!

@Renee - I have the same problem. Having a multi-stall restroom at work kills me.

Can you please decorate my house for me? I'm hopeless.

aw erik, im sure you're not completely hopeless! but sure, i can help you, hehe. :-P
