New year, new blog, new fiance, new home. You read that right, Jefe & Sledge are finally getting hitched! Needless to say it was a rather exciting holiday season as Jefe popped the question right before Thanksgiving.
After the confetti and bubbles in the champagne settled and the parents all had wedding bells on the brain, Jefe and I started to discuss what was next for us. The big plan if you will.
That led us to Craigslist, an apartment showing and a quick lease signing later, we had the keys to a new place.
So what convinced us to decide to sign a lease while visiting family and planning a wedding all over Christmas break? Central air. Refinished hardwoods. Sconces. A fireplace (nonworking, but it’s beautiful). FRENCH DOORS.
I’m sure you all want to read a little less and ogle a little more so without further ado, here’s our new place!
Front entrance! White roses line the walkway.
Our amazing living room! It’s bright, airy, super spacious yet cozy.
Great archway in to the dining room.
A chandelier we don’t hate! And ALL the lights in the apartment are on dimmers!
The kitchen is large with plenty of counter space. The colors have proven a bit challenging as I don’t know how to accessorize two-toned blue floors and buttery yellow walls, but I’m up for it!
The second bedroom we’ll be using as our home office. (I can see the Red Sox paraphernalia filling the walls now….)
And our master. The place was renovated with such an eye for design while still being neutral enough that we can inject our own style in to it. Because of this, I don’t even hate the boob light because it matches everything else!
There’s plenty more to come (including our amazing bathroom with pedestal sink and original penny tile floor) but as our place is still COVERED in boxes, we’re not quite ready for the full, non-Craigslist ad pictures yet.
But there’s definitely more to come in the next few weeks! Sledge is back (and engaged!)
