MY. NEW. PLACE.

Finally right? Well, let me show you some RAW pictures of my apartment before I make it awesome. Right now I'm still hanging things and waiting to find the perfect coffee table so, it's a work in progress.

I said a not so tearful goodbye to my little shoebox apartment with the worlds smallest kitchen...

And said a HUGE LOUD HEYYYY to my new aparment with a full kitchen with new everything, marble bath, and an ipod dock with speakers all around the apartment.


This is the living room...at night...on moving day. I finally got the movers there at 8PM and then rushed off to an engagement party for my BFF. Please excuse my purse on the HUGE counter-top.

Here is a mini preview slash hint. Remember my window pane plaid loveseat? I got an amazing Persian rug with reds, yellows, and blues in it and have used this to start my living room on its way. You'll see the final product when it's done.

Thoughts? I still need those bar stools--haven't had time to look for any since I'm working till 7 and schooling it nonstop (that means I'm still taking classes...I'm not "schooling" anything) but my design school friend suggested I take a look at some of the restaurant supply stores...have any of you been to those?

That's a great idea! Aren't there a bunch over by Canal Street? I'm excited to see how you decorate your new place. How about this chair (from Crate and Barrel)?
