love this inspirational wall next to the computer desk -- a great DIY idea and very lululemon, no?

Last week my sister decided to agree to do Teach for America for two years after she graduates this June. Her ultimate life goal is to obtain a PhD in theoretical physics and pursue a career in academia, but when faced with the option of either diving into graduate school right away or taking a few years to give back and learn in a real-world setting, she chose the latter. I am so, so proud of her! Not only will she be nobly (and I think quite successfully) helping disadvantaged students, but she will be doing so in the best city in the world WITH ME! I can’t even express how excited I am to have Julia down in New York with me for two years. When I signed my job contract in the fall I did so knowing full well that my twin city plans might ultimately fall through and, to be honest, for quite a while it looked like they were going to do just that! But now the fates have favored us yet again and its seems that maddening and majestic Manhattan will continue to be our twin thing. I, of course, can’t help but already brainstorm ideas for our apartment… I know searching for something within our just-out-of-school budgets will be a pain, but a girl can dream!

these windows are just fantastic -- definitely a charming little feature that we could find in older apartments

realistically, rooms will not be so much "rooms" as they are "spaces." this artful closet-made-wall-art next to a super comfy bed is a practical idea for a studio space
