Around the Apartment

6.28.2012

I spend a large portion of my day (sometimes 100% of it) in our apartment.  It's a bit small and cozy but it's really starting to grow on me.  The light flows beautifully through the windows and, on a clear day, we have views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin headlands.  But there are some pretty little details around the interior as well.

I love all the language books The Boyfriend has.  Someday, I'll figure out how to read them.

Don't be fooled, though.  Not all of the books are his...

I bought this bamboo plant from Ikea about a year and a half ago.  It was tiny and almost dead.  Now it's almost 3 feet tall!

Old (but loved) pictures and old (but loved) jewelry...

The Boyfriend's Scotch collection - I've had to put restrictions on new purchases.  He has to at least empty one bottle before buying another!


We're planning on devoting quite a bit of time this summer to some home improvement.  Maybe I'll give you another tour in a few months!

  1. Cute! At least you've tried to do some decorations and apply some designs in your place. Was your apartment rented or you totally bought it? Was it like a penthouse apartment? It really is cute. And I'm happy one way or another 'coz I found out that you thought of some ways to beautify your place which serves as my inspiration.

  4. Don't you worry my friend, we've lived in our place ALMOST a year and there is not a damn thing on any of the walls. I guess you can say I'm indecisive?
