|welcome to my home|
|south facing windows but some clouds decided to pass just when i was taking pics and the shadows took over|
My last place was a cube with the kitchen and bathroom off of one wall, back-to-back with eachother. People felt uncomfortable with the bathroom right off the studio. Then I moved here, and it took a while to get the sense of what was possible - lots of education from Apartment Therapy - before I started buying some furniture. Biggest upgrade was swapping a futon for a full-size bed and sleeper sofa for guests. Other New Yorkers tell me it feels like a 1BR.
|moths ate my awesome wool curtains - if you know where to get replacements PLEASE let me know (orig. the company store)|
|just decided to put that bolster cover over the seat cushion the other day - love it|
|my bed is on the left, it can't be seen until you step into the room - but it is very much out in the open. i'd like to do more with that wall behind that blue carved door|
I actually prefer the bed in the corner. It offers a lot of possibilities: the bed is not viewable from the front door, it can be used like a daybed during the day (not so big on sitting on my sofa), it is as far as possible from the LR, and it can still view the television. (Actually, the tv is angled toward the bed instead of the sofa.)
|more evidence of too much stuff: so much is under the bed the box of sheets can't fit (also it is overstuffed)|
|still trying to decide what to put on this wall other than a mirror which i fear having fall on me in the night|
|no storage space left for winter bedding - quilts at the ready!|
My media wall has all the outlets on it. It is also hollow and shared with another apartment. Generally, the tenant on the other side keeps their media on it as well. I think currently someone is keeping their bed there which is a weird choice since they have an end unit and don't share the other wall. Right now, I keep my bookshelves, etc here which sort of keeps a better flow from the front door. I need more shelves. There actually is room to get one more stacked on top of each with about an inch to spare under the ceiling. But I never catch them on sale anymore.
|i neatened this up so don't criticize, but i am trying to divest of old magazines. also, thinking about finally hanging all that artwork stacked next to the shelf on the left there...|
And then just cause I love the color combos so much, one more shot of the chair I never sit in. Still thinking to stuff the seat cushion with down to soften it up. But down is very, very warm...
I skipped the other rooms, but this is what counts. It has the most (but not all) Color + Texture + Pattern. Feel free to have a look at the evolution on my "home sweet" set on Flickr.
Hope you enjoyed the peak!
