Scott and I are just over a week living in the new apartment so I thought I’d share a few photos of the living room and bathroom. I still need shots of the bedrooms – one of which is empty expect for soap stock but will hopefully soon have a futon and dresser for Cody – and the foyer where I have my office. Yes, it’s that big. (You got to see the kitchen yesterday.) We’re still looking for suitable artwork for the empty wall in the living room. So if you have any suggestions of artwork or artists that fit, please let me know!
The bathroom. It’s not huge, but it’s functional. And it has a great electric heater built into the wall in addition to the radiator. So even when we’re saving money on gas by keeping the heat low, we can crank the electric heater so we’re toasty stepping in and out of the shower. I got the shower curtain, rugs and towels at Target.
Another angle of the bathroom. We’re thinking curtains at some point, though it’s a low priority because the front bedroom needs them much worse. The blinds are horrid, wrecked and filthy. Also, an interesting FYI, this bathroom used to be painted a Pepto-Bismol pink color. It wasn’t pretty.
A view of my living room from my bedroom. The kitchen is the door off to the right. (My baby Jasper is hanging out in the doorway. He’s such a spoiled mini doxie.) I LOVE the built in shelves in this room, so of course I’m using them to showcase a lot of my larger pottery pieces from local artists. I also have a few hand bound blank books on the top shelf that I use as albums for my ACEO’s. I have two albums for prints and two for originals. Now that I’ve dug them out of storage I hope to start collecting again!
A view of the living room from the hallway. The oil painting on the way is by a local artist, Scott Toobz Noel. I have another, much larger, painting of his in my bedroom.
And finally, a view of the living room from the kitchen. We have a closet (right corner) with shelving that we’re using as a bookshelf. We simply took off the closet door. We’re looking for a painting or print to put over the couch (to the left) in this room. And we still need to find curtains and maybe a few throw pillows. A dark red, maybe? What do you think?
