Making your home in an urban area means that finding a charming, cozy apartment on a tree-lined street is a highly coveted achievement (impossible, some might say). Homepolish designer Danielle and her two roommates scored big on this one. After a year's worth of work, Danielle had turned the 700-square-foot space into one of the dreamiest two-bedroom apartments we’ve ever set our design-hungry eyes on.

A balanced mix of mid-century and modern, artfully placed objects like stacked books, plants, photography, and chalkboard drawings add life and character to Danielle's cozy apartment. Clean lines mixed with vintage touches give the space a cool vibe, perfect for entertaining or just chilling out. We'd fancy being a guest any day of the week.

The $40 flea market find-turned-bar "cart" (an ironing board in another decade) is one of our favorite quirky accents in the apartment.

The bathroom loves Brooklyn and chalkboard paint, too! Billy Buttons (or Craspedia globosa) add cute pops of color to any room, and what's more — these perennials last forever.

Danielle "hid" the TV among a sea of frames, making it a part of the decor. This is a great trick for those of you who don't want to make the television front and center.
