Home Tour

Thursday, November 7, 2013

We have lived in our 900 sq ft apartment for a little over a year. Our plan, for the foreseeable future, is to stay put while we save up to be homeowners. When we were apartment hunting last year we looked at a lot of places. Many in the same neighborhood. Ultimately we found the open floor plan, huge bathroom, and natural light to be major selling points in choosing our current location. We spend most of our time in the living room and kitchen, where we can be together while doing separate things. Despite an abundance of natural light I've found our north facing windows and tree lined exterior make getting good interior photos a little tricky. Even so I'm glad to finally share a portion of our little abode with you.

About half of our furniture is new, while the other half consists of pieces I've picked up at antique stores over the last year. Who knew thrifting with a purpose could be so fun?! Since our storage options are limited we have to be creative when it comes to space. For example, the oddly placed wardrobe with the globe on top functions as our food storage/pantry unit. And on the other side of the fridge we have an open industrial shelving unit for dishes. My favorite thing to do at home is cook and entertain guests. While there are still a few things I'd like to get (namely a rug and new coffee table), I love feeling truly at home in our space; where building it with someone I love is one of the best parts.
