I took these photos shortly after my guests left in August, and have taken until now to post them. Apologies to my parents and other friends who wanted to see my new apartment!
The entryway. I don’t see any reason for it to be curved, but then again, why not? 🙂 The front door is there, and then the third wall of that little space is the door to the bathroom. (If the front door’s open, it covers the doorway to the bathroom – don’t get trapped!)
Where the dining room and living room meet, along with their paint schemes. The living room is pale yellow, a much-lighter shade of the dining room’s gold. The bike stayed there for quite some time after the movers brought it up, but is now residing on the stairs below the first floor, chained to the railing, poor thing.
The living room. The boxes in the corner are mostly books with some magazines thrown in for good measure. You’ll notice there’s not a single bookshelf in these photos; at the moment, my budget hasn’t stretched to procure any.
Opposite the couch, though of course the fan isn’t there now. Behind this “under the sea” feature are the two bathrooms, one with entry on the right (by the front door) and one with entry on the left (in the main bedroom).
The spare room, which I still haven’t decided whether to call the guest room or the office or (my favorite) the study. I suppose “the computer room” would also work, since that’s mainly what I do in here.
Why is there a piece of plywood in the previous two photos, you may wonder. This is what it covers. The two halves of the bed’s base are stacked up, with various items stored in them (they are, after all, made to store things). Stacking them frees up floor space, and the wood which the school so kindly provided cut-to-size hides the clutter and provides a hard surface on which to sit or place things. (The long boards that would cover the bed’s base when laid out properly are for the moment against the wall, behind the mattress.)
I have some photos of the apartment complex to share as well, but I’m leaving those for another post, as it’s late and I’m tired of looking at photos! Please note that that stacked-up bed in the spare room can UN-stack, and guests are welcome! (Though honestly the couches are softer than that mattress – fair warning!)
