It might be easy to feel a tinge of jealousy entering a 3-bedroom apartment overlooking 5th Avenue in Manhattan, but Amanda’s personality will squash that immediately. As someone who makes her living by being hospitable as a Fashionable Hostess, visitors are comfortable and well taken care of in her beautiful abode.

Amanda hosts weekly events in her stylish apartment, sharing food, drinks, and parting favors with her guests. As the Apartment Therapy photographer for this tour, I was offered a cheese plate upon entering, and left with a bottle of sparkling wine. Though her style is minimalist, there is warmth inside with thanks to the rugs, floor lamps, wall art, and photos of her family. Once Reese woke up from her nap, we got to peek inside her chic little girl’s room which is adorned with family photos, name plates, toys, and the most adorable pink toy kitchen.

You may remember the living room from Amanda’s House Call back in July, where she shared her favorite space with us. The photos in this slideshow were taken towards the end of 2014, so tiny pumpkins and Fall accents are placed throughout. Amanda changes her spreads and accents according to the season.

For more of Amanda’s apartment, she shares some truly stellar photography (and really fun hosting tips!) on her blog Fashionable Hostess.

Apartment Therapy Survey:

My Style: Modern Chic

Inspiration: A series of homes I saw on Style Me Pretty. I love clean and minimalist. But since we have young kids we still want everything to be comfortable and bright.

Favorite Element: The large windows in each of the rooms that overlook 5th avenue.

Biggest Challenge: Storage space. The one downside to living in NYC is that we don’t have a garage to store strollers and car seats!

What Friends Say: It’s great for entertaining. I host events weekly {it’s a part of my job being founder / writer behind}

Proudest DIY: Spice racks in the kitchen, makeup shelves in the bathroom.

Biggest Indulgence: Living room art. A piece by artist Stephanie Vovas.

Best Advice: A lot of people who have young children avoid putting nice pieces like vases or bowls out on their coffee table. We on the other hand have put things out since our kids were babies, so they understand not to touch, and in a way are uninterested. Basically my advice is to decorate for you, not let kids over-run your style.
