apartment tour

this post is extremely picture heavy! get ready for a tour of the new apartment. :)


this door leads out to the fire escape and the rooftop patio

note the dishwasher!!!!

the living room. not sure why i didn't open the blinds for the picture but I have full size windows that open at the bottom and look out onto the street. 

coffee table was a craigslist purchase last weekend, couch was also from craiglist a while ago (one of the few pieces of furniture that made the move with me) the art above the couch was from an auction and the rug was from a thrift store. i love how thick it is and how it looks it has this pebbled beach look to it. 

the four photos below are water colours my grandmother bought in paris and gave to me when i went to paris last year. I just got them back from the framers (custom frames) and i think they look great!

the welcome banner was for the housewarming party we had this weekend. 

these shelves were a craigslist buy. $75 for the whole thing. what a steal! note the record player bottom left! YES!

front door, hallway to my bedroom, angry brother

some of my favorite things on these shelves are my russel wright gray platter that my uncle bought me (above) and the blue vintage fan print that jay bought me. (below)

bathroom is nothing special but i do love the vintage tile. and my new shower curtain from ikea. 

vintage wire basket to hold magazines and crosswords. 

my bedroom! again with the closed windows :( but i have a huge closet with mirrored doors and a plan to get rid of my dresser and turn that nook into a desk area. 

there is also a smaller closet when you first enter my room that I have used for linens and bathroom storage. 

old house equals lots of big closets. this on is in the front hall. 

ians room!

and this ends the tour! not bad for not even two months living there. 

next i will show you the patio because really, thats what sold me on the place! the layout is super functional for ian and I. my bedroom is on one side of the living room (by the front door and the washroom) and ians room is off of the kitchen on the other side of the house. this means more privacy and we can have slightly different sleep schedules. the bright windows are awesome and i'm mad that i didn't open them before taking these pictures. its just been so smoking hot in toronto this past week that we had all the windows shut and the blinds down and ran the AC.

My goodness the place looks fantastic! Love love LOVE the shelving unit and that lamp shade in the kitchen, tre fab! I hope your summer so far has been beyond wonderful! Ideally I would like to come visit sometime this summer, but it's not looking very realistic (vans about to craok). However we would LOVE it if you could come visit sometime soon!

Peace Lady!

naturally like your website however you need to test the spelling on quite a few
of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling
issues and I find it very troublesome to tell the reality nevertheless I will certainly come
back again.
