Apartment tour!

Last week we hosted a small dinner party for some of Dan's classmates, which was just the motivation I needed to get those last few boxes unpacked (or shoved in closets), pictures hung, and shelves de-cluttered. Thankfully, I remembered to snap a few pictures while it was all still clean & shiny. So here it is, at long last -- our Cambridge apartment tour! Click on images for hidden notes & random info :) (everything looks very yellow/orange in these pictures. granted, most of the walls are painted yellow or orange (what they call "provencal"), but it doesn't feel so yellow/orange living in it as it does looking at it). Anyway. Onward

hallway to the kitchen. we have a hallway! with built-in bookshelves! so grown-up :)

a close-up of those built-ins (which I spent hours arranging and rearranging, using every HGTV design trick in the book)

kitchen
my favorite room in the apartment ~ the kitchen (seen before here)

apartment.9
right off the kitchen is the guest bedroom/Dan's study nook (his desk is tucked back in the corner)

bedroom
our bedroom, which we still need to work on making more cozy/pretty

apartment.2
our cozy living room ~ terrible lighting, my apologies

apartment.8
more built-ins and HGTV stylings, located in the living room adjacent to the couch

apartment.6
my "studio" (aka the art nook) which sits right behind the couch in the living room area ~ not so easy to keep this area clean

apartment.7
a close-up of my art desk, in all it's cluttered glory

And that's all folks! Thanks for joining me :)

So cute! Ok, I don't think you can come to my house now because I don't know all those HGTV tricks that make it look so stylish! I just have books on a shelf :)
