Most of Lundby's furniture is vintage, thanks to her great love of flea markets and antique stores. But she's been lucky enough to snag some great things from her family, too. "For some things, like the Eames lounge chair, it's great to have a generous family with good taste," she says.

The turquoise tile on the kitchen counters is one of the things that initially drew Lundby to the bright and colorful apartment. And plant life is a must — her next big project is to build window boxes for herbs and flowers outside the kitchen windows.
Lundby stores most of her dry goods in Galaxy syrup bottles from the 1950s. The company that produced these bottles went bankrupt before they were ever filled with syrup.
Almost everything in her home is antique, thrifted or repurposed in some fashion. The result is a well-loved home that never feels too precious. Above is a shot of Lundby and a vintage fan-belt rack she found at a flea market, which makes the perfect hanger for scarves and necklaces.
"Before I bought my first grownup couch last year, there wasn't a single thing that I lived with that cost me more than $300," says Lundby. "Unless, of course, you count six years of dog food, toys and vet bills. But I don't."
