well, we found an apartment and are going on sunday to check it out one last time, sign the lease, and pay our security deposit and pet deposit and 1/2 month's rent (we can start moving may 15th)!! the place is first and second floor (!!!!!), and although its not a giant apartment, its going to be quirky and great -- downstairs: sun room, living room/dining room/kitchen all open together, good sized bathroom. upstairs: two bedrooms and a great hallway for artwork <3 [the sunroom is going to be great, we're thinking it will probably house pat's electric drumkit and our office, and possibly our gigantic ikea bookcase...]
the best thing is that i will get my own sewing room (instead of using half of our living room..haha!). i get the smaller of the two bedrooms (which the previous tenants used as a nursery)... i'm going to try to make the room as girly as possible, while still keeping it modern and funky. here are a few inspiration photos for color and design:
my hope is that we'll be able to fit a futon in the room, so we can have guests.. but i'm not sure how much room will be left when i get all of my stuff in there ;)
here's some other great dec inspiration pics, for fun...
