Hello friends :)
I’m currently flying over the U.S. somewhere on my way to Los Angeles! I’m heading there for a Dole Blogger Summit and I can’t wait to share all the fun details. I’ll be blogging of course, but make sure you are following me on Twitter, too :)
And now for some entertainment while I’m traveling — the rest of me and Matt’s apartment tour! If you remember, I gave a picture tour of our bedroom, showed you my favorite part of the house (the porch!), and then kept you in suspense about the rest! Oops. Here we go, finally :)
First up — the living room!
Love the pretty fall trees outside the window. That’s “the basket chair” in the right foreground — my parents got it when they were first married (!) and I have always loved it. My mom was tired of it so now it’s mine :)
Here’s the rest of the living room — I’m in love with our big sectional couch. We just need to figure out what to put on the wall behind it! We are thinking of blowing up and framing some of my best photographs… any recommendations for companies/ways to go about doing that?
And, check this out — our coffee table lifts up!! This was the best investment we made by far. When lifted, it’s the perfect level for doing homework (hence why the girls always come over here to do homework!), computer stuff, eating, whatever! And you can store blankets in the bottom. Sweet!
Here’s the fireplace and TV — I’m excited to start a fire once it’s super cold out! To the right is the window next to the basket chair, and to the left is the door out to the porch.
View from the couch — again, the door to the porch, and to the left is the little hallway that leads to our bedroom! The front door of the apartment is behind us.
Next up — the other bedroom, which we use as an office/guitar room! This room is on the right when you first walk in the front door. Here’s my desk — love being by the window.
On the other side of the room lives Matt’s impressive guitar collection!
He’s an awesome guitar player so it’s fun to listen to him practice. And here’s his desk, with some recording equipment, etc.:
On to the kitchen! The kitchen is not one of this apartment’s strong points — mostly because it doesn’t have any natural light! Boo. But I do like that it’s open — to the right is a bar area so you look right into the dining room.
Love this mounted spice rack Matt put up for me :)
Here’s our dining room, which also doesn’t have any natural light (except what spills in from the living room) — hence why all my food photos are on our porch!
Like our Halloween cat? Heh. I keep forgetting to store him now that Halloween is over! Matt and I want to get a real cat… hopefully after the holidays when traveling has calmed down!
And there you have it! I hope you enjoyed the official tour. We really like this place :)
Catch you guys later on from the west coast!
