My Kitchen

I've been taking photos of my apartment, as promised and especially for Ashley who asks every time I talk to her.  Let's start with the kitchen, as it is the heart of every home, and the most finished room of the house so far, and also it's my favorite.  TA DAH:

I have a couch in my kitchen, which is probably the COOLEST THING EVER.  When I told people I was thinking about doing it, they were... unsure.  But do you see?  It is perfect for reading in the afternoon sunlight with a mug of tea, or sipping wine while dinner cooks, or chatting with friends, or curling up on with some warm banana bread.  It's even good for napping (as long as you're not too tall).
That door to the left goes to our pantry/closet/laundry room (Thanks to Bailey).  The door on the right is the backdoor to the apartment.

This is the view while standing at the backdoor.  Here you can see the only counter space, the only cupboards, and the ONLY DRAWER in the whole kitchen!  The drawer has silverware in it.
That hallway leads to the bathroom and Bailey's room.

The windows look out onto the backyard (yes, backyard).  The kitchen table and chairs belonged to Bill's grandma.  The table against the wall only cost $50!  I have to send this photo to the lovely couple I bought it from.

Just a little detail.  I love this tablecloth from Anthropologie (on sale), and I try to keep fresh flowers around as often as possible.

Another detail.  SEE THE STRIPES!  They are very subtle, but I love them.

There you have it: a tour of the kitchen.  Next... the bathroom.  Seriously.

Mikey, that's my sister's room. She has another door that opens to the living room.

Ashley. You can move in as soon as you're able. You're commute is going to SUCK, but you'll have something nice to come to! I can't wait!

Thanks, Mel!

I love the new kitchen, I hardly recognized it -- and super high-five for putting a couch in there.
