I said (a long time ago) that I was going to post pictures of my apartment, so can you please forgive me the fact that my promise is being made good on over six months later? I have things straightened up because I cleaned last weekend, and my parents are coming to visit on Sunday/Monday, so without further ado, please the enter house tour here:
The living room! All decor and furniture is from IKEA except the throw pillows (Home Outfitters) and the TV (Best Buy).
The bookshelves, the precious bookshelves.
A portion of my bookshelf allotment. The wooden calendar was my maternal great-grandmother’s, and I faithfully change it every day. Flipping the date is one of the first things I do each morning.
Another view of the living room, and the kitchen.
The kitchen. (The chairs are from IKEA, but that’s it!)
My ladies. (And behind that door is the washer and dryer. Yahoo!!)
Another vantage point, and my other lady. I’m working on my Pyrex bowl collection – as you can see, I don’t quite have enough yet to fill the tops of the cupboards. I keep all my baking supplies in the wooden bread box, and I reach up there by standing on the fold-up step-stool you can see to the left of the fridge in the picture of “my ladies.”
I have always liked a full-magneted fridge, and I don’t think this affinity is going to change any time soon.
On the way into the Man Den…(The reflective rectangles at the top of the room are two of three licence plates we have up there – Ontario, PEI, and Alberta.)
Darcy and I spend a lot of time in here. In fact, I’m writing up this post from the couch corner you can see in this picture!
The pictures on this wall are a mish-mash of things both Darcy and I like, and most of them mean something personal to us.
The view on the way out of the Man Den.
The recently painted bathroom. I still have work to do in here, but it’s coming together slowly…
The bedroom – also known as the most incomplete room in the apartment. I don’t have anything on the walls yet, and the only other items to show are my wardrobe (which you can see here), two bedside tables, and a clothes hamper, so the colour scheme is just going to have to do! (Bed frame and bedding from IKEA.)
