Theresa, the blogger behind Sunsets & Cheese and another one of my favorite Instagrammers, lives in this lovely little space – a converted 3-bedroom on the 3rd floor of a tiny brownstone in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
I love her dining room! (It makes me consider turning my front room into a formal dining room.) Those beautiful wood floors, the high ceilings, the sunshine coming in through the tall windows! Gorgeous.
...But it wasn't always so.
"When I moved in 2.5 years ago, the apartment was in shambles – doors falling off hinges and missing knobs."
In the time she's called the apartment home, Theresa has completely transformed it from shabby to lovely: painting walls, fixing doors, and revamping furniture. She draws inspiration from nature, history, and (in the bedroom) Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. A girl after my own heart!
Her home is filled with furniture new, old, and thrifted, as well as Victorian details (to honor the building's history), and even some $7 Anthropologie finds.
"The layout of my room seems a bit cramped when you step into it, but I absolutely love it. My bed, which is what you walk into, faces the window, and I get to wake up to a burst of sunshine through my sheer drapes."

Thank you for sharing your lovely apartment, Theresa!
