This is the pathway leading up to our new apartment. It feels so secluded and quiet, even though it's very central. Right now there are autumn leaves strewn about, and the river runs black and cold on the left side below.
This is a sneak-peek of our new kitchen. I say 'sneak-peek' because it isn't quite finished yet. When the builders unpacked the lovely, deep ceramic sink which belongs in that gaping hole, it had a large scratch accross the front. So we have to exchange it for a new one. The range hood also needs to be covered, and the siding is missing from the upper cabinets.
We are also waiting on the delivery of this Liebherr refridgerator:
My jaw dropped when I saw this picture...and then again when I saw the price. We are giving it to ourselves as an early Christmas present.
We're also getting a linen-covered couch from Maisons Du Monde:
And oversized industrial hanging lamps for the kitchen and living room from East Hampton Living:
I've also bought some lovely items from etsy artists like this twin set of prints by The Black Apple:
I can hardly wait to find nice frames for them and the perfect spot in our home to display them in all their mysterious beauty!
We plan on staying in our new apartment for a long time, so we've decided to only buy things we REALLY LOVE and are sure to keep loving.
This is the view out of the kitchen window. It makes me daydream about a time when our little children will play on that swingset, and then when the first star appears in the lilac twilight sky, I'll call out to them, "Supper is ready!" And they'll come inside, huffing and puffing from the autumn cold, and there will be a warm meal and tail-wagging and a big hug from their Dad.
Leaving the new apartment today I had to take another picture of the walkway. I am really looking forward to this being the way to-and-from our home.
It's a rainy Monday. Leaves have begun to fall and plaster the wet streets. My little ten-year-old brother is visiting, so between packing and errands I'm supplying him with pizza, hot chocolate and video games galore. He calls my husband's media room 'heaven.' I like spoiling him when he visits. It's so much fun!
Wishing you all a cozy start to the week,
