There have been a few changes at my apartment in recent weeks, and I thought I would share.
We moved around the furniture a bit in the living room to create a workspace right under the window. The new arrangement also encourages conversation by having the seating a bit closer and more intimate. I also got a rug after pondering options here (you can also see the old arrangement at that link). Now the room looks like this:
And here is a close up of the rug I went with:
The dresser conversion in the foyer is on hold at the moment, though it hopefully will be done next weekend. In the meantime our foyer looks like this:
The biggest change, however, is in the kitchen. It is getting a heavy dose of cheery colors and whimsy.
here, I ended up feeling really unhappy with the result. I tried to live with it for a bit to see if it would grow on me, but you know what? It didn't! At all. if anything, I started to like it less and less, and started imagining new ways I could fix what I had done. Hope this works, I like it a lot better already, and can't wait to find some fun, poppy art work for that empty wall to pull it all together!
I'll post a few more shots once the project is done. Right now a lot of the kitchen looks a bit unfinished...
