Fall Nesting in Full Effect

Not the “Holy Shit, there’s a baby on the way” nesting but the kind that happens when the first cool weather snap takes place, the all pumpkin-palooza begins and for us newlyweds the wedding gifts finally get unpacked and put in their proper place.  Our nesting began today, prepped with coffee a vacuum and Leo’s strong hands.  The “music” room became our “sitting|tv”room and the piano shifted to the west.  The pup is still confused and it’ll take some getting used to but it’s fresh and we’re down with that.

On a side note, any designer friends out there or anyone that loves to work challenging layouts?  Give us a shout, our little apartment needs some help.

Challenges:

  1. Unfortunately placed radiators in EVERY room.
  2. The dreaded “railroad”
  3. Kitchen size = two square feet (on a good day)
  4. The ever-lacking storage

Small spaces require smart design!

November 5 we signed a lease to our new digs.  December 18 we moved in.  A 9ft sofa, a pup, Christmas, Mama F and a couple of friends later- we are now starting to feel at “home”.  Leo and I had just about everything imaginable thrown our way  (just like everybody else) in the past 8 months- but, he’s got this patience thing down to a science… he knows how to cool my jets when I get a tad jumpy and he’s not afraid to take chances- he’s a killer friend and incredible partner.

I’m a super thankful gal.

2012 is bound to be a good one, we can just feel it.

*now on to new projects like what to cover with this chalkboard paint…
