It’s about time I finally took you all on another tour of the place since we’ve done a bit of updating over the last few months. Let’s get right to the photos!
We’ll start with the master bedroom which really sold us on this place as it is a true master with plenty of space and a walk in closet. It’s definitely a work in progress in terms of design: it needs a floor mirror, lots of artwork and a rug. But I really do love the space (how did I live for 30 years without black out curtains?!)
Next we move down the hallway towards the rest of the apartment. The door on the right leads to our service porch with washer & dryer (and absolutely NOTHING to see.)
This little clock gallery wall was inspired by a recent episode of Fixer Upper. Jefe saw a version in a kitchen Joanna designed and LOVED the idea. We started with the bottom 3 clocks and are just adding as we find unique and interesting ones to include. Smaller 3 clocks are from Target, silver one is from Ikea.
Through the doorway on the left is the second bedroom/office. This room has changed the most recently and we’re really happy with the way its turned out. It is a great, comfortable space to work from as both Jefe and I do a fair amount from home. And despite this really being Jefe’s domaine in terms of aesthetics, I can’t wait to finally get a reading chair in here! It gets the perfect amount of light all day and is arguably the quietest room in the house.
Continuing down the hallway, on the left is the kitchen. This room is probably the closest to being done. There’s a few small tweaks yet, like covering the black cord of our new, much needed pendant light and finding a few small items to hang on the wall. But otherwise I’m calling this space COMPLETE (or until I find something new and decide to rearrange my open shelving).
We’re going to skip the super pink tiled bathroom for the moment (until I can clean it enough to be presentable for photos!) and move on to the dining room. We’re still on the hunt for a sideboard under the windows (from this perspective you’re back is facing them), but we really have only been purchasing items to a) replace our worn down Ikea pieces and b) that we plan to keep for the long haul. Nothing has really struck my fancy so far that I don’t think I’ll hate 5 years from now so there’s no need to rush a large purchase like that; I’ll know it when I see it. So the space is what it is for now. Nice, spacious and simple with plenty of room for dinner parties where I can get my Martha on. Artwork is by my extremely talented cousin!
Lastly, we move in to the room where we spend the most time – our living room. It’s really cozy and perfect during the cooler months. We’ve been working to really incorporate meaningful pieces in to the space – each of our home state flags, photos from my hometown, a few tchotchkes from our trips. Not much left in here to do design-wise but hang some more artwork, a mirror by the front door and a mirror to hang up blankets on by the floor lamp.
So there you have it for now. Our little home. Hope you enjoyed the tour!
