The Apartment Tour – Finally! September 21, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — missjubilee @ 10:18 pm

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!

Photobucket
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!)

Photobucket
Just ’round the corner, one sees the door to the kitchen, in the wall of…

Photobucket
…the dining room.

Photobucket
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.

Photobucket
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.

Photobucket
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).

Photobucket
Guest bathroom and laundry room

Photobucket
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.

Photobucket
Papers and such that have not yet been dealt with. And the cat’s traveling case!

Photobucket
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.)

Photobucket
Voila! A potted plant! New since the photos above, obviously.

The ol’ bedroom

Photobucket
A heavenly soft place to crash

Photobucket
The en suite bathroom (now with a more mature trash can than the landlady-owned one in the photo)

Photobucket
At the kitchen door looking right

Photobucket
Curtains (new since these other photos)

Photobucket
Stove, flour (white & whole wheat), spices

Photobucket
Sink & microwave

Inside the kitchen looking left at the oven and fridge

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!)
