Today, a rainy Wednesday, I went to our new apartment to measure out the kitchen. I took my camera and wide-angle lense with me so you all could have a look. I don't know if these empty rooms will interest anyone, but I know this kind of thing interests me (I always like imagining how it will look furnished), so there's a chance a few of you Kindrd Spirits will be intrigued, too. :)
Just to get you into the setting of our soon-to-home (we get the key October 13th), this is the view we have on the left side of our garden:
The trees already have a few golden leaves! Can't wait to see what it looks like mid-October!
Here is the hallway...and some dude....just kidding...that guy is head of construction, Mr. Fischer. He really wanted to get on my blog.
As you can see, I chose a very light (almost white) floor which keeps the rooms bright and friendly.
On the left you see the three bedroom doors, at the end of the hall is the bathroom door, and the hallway to the right where Mr.. Fischer is coming from has the doors to the WC (toilet) and pantry, and leads to the kitchen/dining room/living room and front yard.
Here is a (blurry, sorry) shot of bedroom 1, which has a door to the back yard:
Here is a piece of the backyard:
Below it, between our yard and those trees, runs a river. We get evening sun on this spot, and are planning on placing a bench out here.
This is bedroom 2:
And this is bedroom 3:
We think bedroom 1 will be the 'media room' with the big flatscreen, couch, and hundreds of dvds my husband lovingly collects, bedroom 2 will be the master bedroom, and bedroom 3 will be the Kiki La Ru/Sugar Bridge crafts room, and eventually (hope hope hopefully) baby room.
Here's a look at the bathroom; how do you like the slate flooring I chose? I love it!
I bought a fabulous shower curtain from Anthropology for the bathtub:
Here's the all-important WC, with the same floor as the bathroom:
I forgot to close the little door to the water meter, sorry!
Here is the pantry I am so happy about:
And, ta-ta-ta-TAAAA, here is the kitchen and living/dining room:
This is (half of) our front yard, which I know looks a bit sad, wet, and empty right now, but that will change!
As you can see there is a little playground on the left side, and a metal trellis where I will plant climbing plants. And we are planning on covering the terrace stones with wood. That grass on the left goes all along the side of our apartment, which is nice for the dogs.
And this, my friends....do you know what this is?
This is a monstrous stack of moving boxes! I can hardly believe we are moving, and am so very excited to start fresh. I've never lived in a brand-new home before, and look forward to decorating it very simply and sparingly. I don't want too much stuff filling it up. So I will be taking advantage of the cellar space provided (not pictured), and giving alot of stuff away. Throwing alot of stuff away, too.
Hope at least one of you enjoyed this little tour!
There is so much going on right now, and I hope you know that, even though I can't post often, I do think of you all, and check to read your kind notes often.
