way better

photos! hooray! warning: lots of photos ahead. really. lots.

stepping in the front door. notice giant window to the left and closet ahead. there are hooks to the right inside.

turn right and enter the dining room. doorway to the left is the living room and to the right is the kitchen.

gas stove! and a window above. spices and cool stuff will go on those shelves. cool stuff like my sheep-shaped cake mold!

new cabinets on this side. dishwasher and double sink and cabinets and fridge. washer is in a secret closet to the left.

awesome barn door cabinets! this will be the pantry, for sure. they just open up so big and you can see everything inside. oh man i love it.

the little cabinets below the big ones. cleaning stuff and tools down here i think.

my corner of the living room! my desks (one sewing and one computer) will be there. sewing one to the right more, by the skinny window. i'm going to make an awesome piece of fabric to hang in the skinny one. probably silk. something sheer...

corner of the bedroom where the bed will go. by the window for lazy reading. except i never get to do that. maybe in the summer?

the throne! look at the shelves! and that window looks out to the backyard. big closet to the left where our clothes will go. there's not closet in the bedroom, but i have a dresser.

back into the bedroom for a better view. window to the right.

i love the floors. the color balance is weird in this one, but the light that comes off the floors is awesome. it warms everything up.

view out the window in front of my desk. weeping tree of some sort. no idea what kind. it will be all leafy in the summer!

view out the skinny window. down the street, toward the library. i can spy on innocent pedestrians!

rose of sharon outside the dining room window. i love the pods being everywhere! i can take mystical photos like this!

the floor. and my boots.

exposed beam by my windows! i'm going to line up all my vintage photos along the bottom of it. then, we're going to grow and dry herbs and hang them. yummy.

the front door. that is actually on the side...

the backyard and back door. also on the side... siding to the right is the garage.

shed and back of the house. we have a hose!

needs a lot of work, but i will grow things!

my landlord's creative locking device. a pretty stick.

What a great place! You are so lucky! I love the floor, and the kitchen, and the skinny window. Summer in there will be awesome.

Hi Suann! Thanks, you'll be seeing a lot more of this place! I have some plans for styling and all kinds of stuff!

Oh man, Carlene! That's exactly what I thought when we first looked at it, about summer! All the windows open, tending to my flowers outside. Sigh.

please sir said...

Looks like such a great, wonderful space! And wood floors - SWOON!

Brittany Noel said...

Hi Jan! I'll be way happier than I am here, that's for sure! I'm looking at seed catalogs right now...

I know, Diana, the wood floors are amazing! And the place still reeks from them just being refinished. I can't wait to walk around in my bare feet in the summer. Mmmmm. But, we have to find some rugs now!

I don't know what is happening!

You are growing up!

We need to talk...

Brittany Noel said...

Mickey! We never see each other anymore. You can come over to our house and we can be friends again! But not for a month, because that's when we move in. Love to you.

Hi Jesse! Thanks, and I can't wait to decorate this place! It'll be a while though, I have to find my food first! haha :)
