The Landing StripAs mentioned, this week’s Apartment Therapy tasks are pretty simple. When I first moved in to my apartment, I wanted the entryway to be really simple, so I didn’t do too much decorating. On the kitchen outer wall, I just have a big clock (the perspective looks really small in the picture though) and two really cool IKEA storage cubes that I found in the AS-IS bins (I still can’t figure out what’s “wrong” with them). The top of the wooden boxes act as a “catch all” for mail, catalogs, keys, change etc, and I put out of season stuff (beanies, gloves etc) inside.

On the opposite wall, I have a coat and shoe rack, that I try to keep only favorite shoes/jackets on.

And of course, on the wall by the door I have the .99 cent IKEA magnetic strip for reminders, and my urban outfitters birdhouse “Home Tweet Home” art. I’m officially happy with the entryway / landing strip.
