Our apartment is far from being complete - namely there's a couch that needs to be purchased and a couch that needs to be burnt to the ground (our current couch). So I'm giving you a mini, partial, baby apartment tour today that focuses on the highlights of our imperfect multi-story townhome. It's skinny, small, and a happy place that we both feel warm and at home. And that makes it perfect. Don't mind the images that skip the kitchen and the couch. The kitchen is dreamy but hard to photograph and the couch deserves a space in hell.
Ben installed these curtains (from Ikea for a steal) and it changed the entire look of the living room windows. They somehow look bigger framed in these pretty curtains.
These nesting tables from World Market were a genius idea - when we have more space and need more end tables, they serve a separate purpose and when we downsize (or get into a skinnier space) they can nest and we don't need to store them in the garage.
I finally purchased a bed frame after almost three years of apartment living. What took me so long? It's awesome to be off the floor. In lieu of a tall or ornate headboard (this pine frame offers very little structure) I made a waterfall of white lights to illuminate the head of the bed. It filled the space really well.
So there you have it - a peek at the living room and the bedroom! We have more space in the hall closets, washer dryer, kitchen, entry stairs and mini foyer, garage, and bathroom, but those are the boring places to photograph. This'll have to suffice for now until I make the apartment even more ours.
