After we've moved into a new space, inviting our friends over for a Pinot-fueled artwork-hanging, furniture-arranging, and rug-unrolling is one of our favorite parts about changing apartments. And, sometimes it takes a second (or third or fourth) outside opinion to help you really nail down what your own actually is. Plus, a few extra ounces of muscle might convince you to finally try positioning the couch against the window — for you to discover that you love it there.
Of course, if you're Joanna Goddard, your friends include interiors whiz Emily Henderson, and a little fluffing and zhuzhing involves calling in the folks at Keep to help fill in the gaps. The results of this dream-team collab? The most amazing two-bedroom makeover — like, ever. Click through to see how Emily transformed a pretty basic NYC apartment into a truly magical, personal, kid-friendly abode that isn't adult-repellent in the least. Both Joanna and Emily will be unveiling separate rooms throughout the week, so keep an eye peeled for those. In the meantime, check out the nursery and living room on Cup of Jo.
