Well, now on to the second day of my ONLINE HOUSE WARMING PARTY! Woo Hoo! I tried and tried to upload the videos I did but to no avail. WordPress apparently does not like my Blackberry security and so the uploads would fail every time. It would have been so cool if it had worked because I was able to add a voice over and even a little intro with me on it. But not to be … at least today!
So I have more pictures for you. Are you getting tired of pictures? [If you missed yesterday's post and photos, you can go here to check it out] There isn’t too many today. Here we go!
Obviously, this is my bathroom. It is very small which doesn’t bother me in the least. I still take military showers (5 minutes or less) and don’t spend too much time in here, so it’s all good for me.
This is my bathtub! I love this tub. You know the old claw foot bathtubs? I love those because they are so deep. Well, this isn’t a claw-foot but deep it is. I have used it almost every night since I moved in!
You can’t tell here but the color of the stone blocks is a light brown. They are gorgeous! The whole apartment is done in colors I like and will look great with my favorite colors, which are the rich, deep colors of Autumn.
Again, this shows how small the bathroom is but I love it. Not too much to clean! ha ha. Again, I have granite here, sinks are mounted underneath which makes cleaning a breeze.
This is my stackable washer and dryer by Bosch. Love it! It took a while to figure out how to use it but once I got that down, I fell in love. I like, too, that it is hidden away in a closet. And get this. There is no need to vent this. Cool…
This is to show you a little more of the architectural designs. There is no door to the bedroom. I heard that! LOL! I actually love it. My company…maybe not. But I love the open feel it creates. The air conditioner in this apartment is ice-cold. Brrrr!
These, of course, are my bedroom doors! Again, with the stainless steel, contemporary door handles. Besides this closet, I only have one other closet and that is the tiny entry closet. So I have to build up and have furniture that has double and triple purposes. I can do it!
This is my lovely bed. A queen size air mattress. I think I am reacting to it a little because I am waking up with complete congestion in the morning but this will be the last place I can afford to do. The mattress alone is looking like it will cost me $2,000.00! Yup. It is not cheap to get a non toxic mattress. But, I need to do it right this time. So…
This is another wall of windows in my bedroom. There are two of these huge windows and yes that is my view. I can see to the left and right when I’m in my bed as well. It’s pretty neat to watch the lights turn on or the sky turn pink, orange, blue, purple, etc.! I think I like living in the clouds!
No details were over-looked in my apartment. Even the ceiling fans are contemporary. And you don’t turn them, or the lights, on by a switch. You just hit one of these buttons in the below photo.
If I want to turn up the lights I just hit one of the green keys. If I want to turn up the ceiling fans or turn it off I hit one of the keys on the left. Cool, huh?
I jumped up and down with joy when I discovered the garbage drawer! I didn’t have to invest in a new garbage can. Beyond that, however, I love having it tucked away like this. Nice!
The kitchen faucet is a dream faucet for me. I have to bathe Dekker 1-2 times a week to keep his skin free of allergens, and this flexible faucet is so nice. Dekker loves his bath time in this sink. He even came and got me for one the other day!
These are stunning. As I stated yesterday, they had to be kept on the building because they are part of the building’s historical story, if you will. You push the middle out and thye fold into the V shape you see here. This is where I hang out the window to capture pictures for my readers! Now you can see how easily I might fall out! ha ha!
Well, that is my apartment in a nutshell. Without any furniture. Once I get the furniture purchased and put in, I think this will be an apartment that I will stay in for a long while.
One of the surprises I got when I moved in was that my rent was actually $9 less than I thought. In addition, they had forgotten to tell me that my gas, water, sewer, and trash were included. Love that!
Thank you so much for being part of my ONLINE House warming party this weekend. I had fun and I hope you did too!
I will be announcing the winners on Tuesday in my blog post, but to give you all more incentives to check out both posts, we already have one winner today. Patricia won the “Bridge Photo” that I took by being the very first person to leave a comment.
So make sure, if you visit, you leave a comment so you have a chance at winning a door prize. I still have 10 books and a custom piece of Jewelry to give away.
Determined to continue forward,
