Pictures of the apartment

As promised a month ago: pictures of the apartment! It hasn't been fully decorated yet... we're still trying to figure out what to put in the built-in shelving above the fireplace so it doesn't look like a shrine to the Seymours or a resting place for our diplomas. I love our big picture windows.

When you enter our apartment, you're greeted by this little bar. I'm a drop-and-go kind of girl, so it's a daily struggle to keep the clutter off the counter. A radiator sits underneath the bar, and sometimes Mark and I just stand at the bar, drink our wine and talk. The radiators are great because they give off so much heat, but they do tend to remind me of the dorms (Hill Hall anyone?)

This is one of the bathrooms. The clawfoot tub is to the right; I couldn't really get it in the shot.

This is the other bathroom, which is equipped with slow-to-action fluorescent lights. A friend summed it up: "Was it my imagination or did it get brighter in there the longer the light was on?"

I just realized that the flash lit up our street signs... the one on the left says Edgar Street and the one on the right says Eastlake Avenue. And they were procured legally.

Here's our kitchen. It lacks a central light minus the ones over the stove, so I think we're going to put in track lighting above the cabinets.

Our dining room, complete with area rug.

This is the office nook that we try to tell everyone about but can't really explain. It really is an office in a closet. You could close the doors and no one would know. There's even a window in it, which you can't see in this shot.

Our credenza separates the living room area from the dining area.

The hallway leading back to our room and the spare bedroom ("Spare Oom").

If you come stay with us, here's your room!

This bedroom does double duty as our TV room.

I LOVE the office nook and I also love all the columns! Just put lots of pictures above your fireplace, not just of you guys but everyone you love! And you could put two or three brightly colored books which you would love to recommend with some candles or other decorations to use as book ends!

We just looked on Craigslist. I love Craigslist because you can narrow down your search so much. We really like our neighborhood, so we were able to search only for Eastlake places. Also, it's really a renter's market right now so you should be able to get a great deal!
