Ta da! Welcome to our new home! Let’s take the tour….
We want you to feel comfortable but we are a shoes off household so please leave them by the door. Those windows face west so we get to see all the trees around the lake when we wake up in the morning. It will be extra awesome in the summer; crazy, amazing sunsets and lots of happy noises from the park.
Feel free to sit down and relax. We’ll be having movie nights from time to time. This TV is mostly used for catching up on Scandal. It deserves to be in a home that loves sports but that is not its current destiny. There will be more art on the walls eventually. For now we use books as decor.
Wanna come over for dinner sometime? You’re always welcome. The bar is back there on the shelf. Help yourself. Don’t worry, there’s more wine below. There’s pretty much always more wine in this house.
Our kitchen is super 70s-tastic and not terribly photogenic. But our fridge makes me smile. (I shouldn’t be so hard on our wee kitchen, she’s a Sturdy Gal, that one. Practical. Dependable. She adds an extra dash of bourbon…it’ll mostly cook out.)
I wanted my room to feel cozy and inviting while using it pretty much only for sleep. IKEA advertises my bed frame as being great for people that read in bed which I, of course, interpreted as great for people that watch Netflix in bed. Potato, patato. By far my favorite feature of my bedroom is the walk in closet. It is oh-so-giant and I lovelovelove it. My not small shoe collection waits quietly on a rack behind the door.
Perk #763 of this apartment is the 1.75 bath. Kat has her own little suite of bedroom, walk in closet, and 3/4 bath that rivals my college-era studio in square footage. I have primary domain over the full bath. I’m unreasonably obsessed with my $20 shower curtain from Target. It has this Moroccan vibe that I’m really digging.
And finally, the coup d’etat! Behold! The Accessory Closet! Kat and I agreed to collectivize our accessories (or at least the ones we were open to sharing without special approval) long before we found a place to live. This apartment has so much closet space that we were able to dedicate one of the (rather sizable) closets to our jewelry, headbands, scarves, sunglasses, belts, and evening bags. Our project for Christmas is to organize it a bit better but it is so much fun to plunder and pillage every morning. Kat’s boyfriend, Reuben, told us that we worship at the Church of Pretty. It’s really not that far from the truth.
Thanks for coming over! See you soon!
