Welcome to Our New Apartment!

So I wanted to share with everyone on the blog world my new apartment! Fiancé and I have been here a little over a week and we are really enjoying the new space!

I wanted to give everyone a little tour of our new place  all set up!

   apt 029

The apartment are is so much more spacious than our last place. I was worried that after we got all our stuff inside it wouldn’t feel as big as it initially did, but it totally does!

apt 003

One of my favorite parts of the new place, other than all the space is the built in desk.

apt 030

I love having all my pictures and books and computer set up! It’s my happy place in the apartment!

apt 033 

This is also where the blogging magic happens!

apt 031

I love this frame! I saw this sign when fiancé and I were in Boston and it totally just made me laugh! I had to have it! I saw it in Boston and bought it on Etsy! I love it!

I think it’s a great motto to live (and laugh) by!

apt 032 

From the desk and front door you look back into the living room and ‘bar’ area.  

 apt 036

This is where I max and relax!

apt 039

To the left of where I sit on the couch, close to the door, there is a little built in shelf where we have put some more books, frames and vases. Jackson’s bowls are also in the bottom! Perfect size for him!

apt 040apt 042 

To the other side of the bar area is our dining room! It’s so nice to finally have a place to sit down for dinner – I am so excited. My parents brought up this dining room table for us this past weekend and it fits in our space perfectly.

apt 004 apt 013

Through the door to the side of the dining room is the bedroom. I found Jackson hanging on on my chair in there while I was snapping pictures of the tour.

apt 005apt 006

I think he just wanted his picture taken!

apt 008  

The bedroom looks pretty much the same as it did in the last apartment, but it is a little bit bigger.

apt 019

Behind the door where you walk in to the bedroom is my race board! I love my special little place in the bedroom to display all my bibs.

The black shelving unit holds all my running stuff for training and races. Its nice to have it all in one place!

apt 015

I love my race board!

apt 016

Here is the rest of the bedroom all set up.

apt 021

We have an even bigger walk in closet, it’s amazing, I am in love with it! Here is my side of the closet. I have a slight obsession with clothes…and shoes…and bags…

apt 018

Next to the walk in closet is the bathroom.

apt 022 

Jackson wanted to be in all the pictures today!

Here is the rest of the jack and jill bathroom! You can enter the bathroom from either the bedroom or next to the built in desk. It’s nice to have a sort of circle throughout the house.

apt 025

Can you guess which side is mine??

apt 026

Behind one of the sinks is the washer/dryer and a storage area.

apt 023

Next up is where the magic happens – the kitchen! This is located right across from the dining room.

apt 044

It’s nice and spacious and has lots of shelving room! There is so much more counter space – I am in love!

apt 045  apt 047

So that is pretty much it! We have everything set up for the most part. There are a few pictures and things we still have to set up and a few other things we still need to find a place for but its pretty much all done!

What do you think of our new place?

apt 043

What are your favorite tips or tricks for making a house really a home? I think hanging pictures on the walls make the biggest difference to me. What do you think?

  • Reply runeatdatesleep July 22, 2010 at 1:29 am

    I'm admiring you so much right now that you have everything unpacked and in its own place so soon after moving in. I moved in to my new place almost 2 months ago, and I'm afraid to take pictures to put on my blog!

    With that said, I LOVE your apartment! The desk and the all of the nooks and crannies! And all of the sunlight. Looks perfect!

    OK – I have to confess, when I was moving up here from Orlando, that complex that you are at was one of the finalists. It seemed so weird to look at the entrance way and go "Gee – that looks familiar – is that…."

    Great choice for apts!

  • Reply blissfulhope January 3, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    Your apartment is so cute!! I am pretty sure I live like a mile from you. Do you live across from LA Fitness/Acme?! If so, I LOVE those apartments and am still considering moving there. Such a small world! Xoxo Maria

    Hello, just stumbled across your blog while searching photos of Julia Child’s kitchen. Love your apartment. Hello from down under! (Australia)

    • Reply Leslie January 9, 2013 at 10:23 am

      Yes it is in Fairmount! Such a great neighborhood!
