New Apartment Tour | part 1

 

Why did I move? Well, I think this was evidence enough it was too cold inside...my poor plant baby went from thriving to dying...RIP

All in all it was really fun and easy getting settled into this new place. I am excited to share more little apartment tours with you! This space is really different in comparison to the last... I think my favorite room is the kitchen and living room. It has a very open layout, which helps make it feel cozy. Right when we moved in it already felt like home. Also, we are both in love with having a washer/dryer in unit! It makes such a difference! Sometimes it feels like I am living in a hotel... We are just so grateful to be here.

So I am someone who loves planning my dream home... this new place is definitely not that dream home, and in this space there are things I wish I could have or change. Like painting the walls a nice white, or getting a new grey couch instead of this beat up stained one I found for $50 on craigslist...things like that. But at the end of the day, it really should be function over form as they say. Our couch is comfy and we all get to cuddle together (and by all I am including our cat, Mimosa hehe). I don't want to be someone who gets caught up in materialistic things for bringing me happiness. Sometimes I struggle with that because I truly love and care about how my space feels and looks. But fortunately, I can do that in a budget-friendly way :) I need to remind myself that yes, someday I can have that dream grey couch, but for now I need to remain grateful. So all of that to say, here is a beginning look to some living/dining room photos. Up next will be a little kitchen tour. I hope you enjoy! 

 I found this Ikea lounge chair on craigslist- it was fate. I had gone to Ikea two days before, saw it and wished I could afford it, then found it on craigslist for only $50! What a dream! And Nick got me this beautiful coffee table for Christmas- I am in love with it!

 In our old place we pretty much never used the kitchen table because the kitchen was so separate and cold. Here, we are using it all the time! Sitting down having breakfast or dinner together, doing homework or painting...it's just nice :)
