After moving twice within 4 months, you would think I would be a master of transition and be able to just settle my things into a new place and keep going like before....
Well, clearly that is not the case, since I have been so pre-occupied with unpacking, decorating, and making multiple trips to Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, and TJMaxx that I haven't posted in a whole week! The shame!
So, if you're still reading I thought I would appeal to your voyeuristic side, and give you a little peak into the two rooms of Rafe and my new apartment that are the closest to unpacked and lived-in.
I love the details of this older home - all of the moldings and the mantle on our WORKING fireplace! Also, we get a lot of sunlight - which is quite a change from my Boston studio apartment.
And my personal favorite: the pantry.
Now I finally have a home for all of my cooking magazines, cookbooks and cookware!
And a step ladder because I'm short and I need it to reach high shelves :)
We keep our dishes in the glass cabinets. The cookbooks are below, and wine and liquor to the right.....and a random butternut squash?? I am reminded that I need to cook that...
This is also where I store appliances that I don't want taking up valuable counter space, like my beloved food processor and my panini press/waffle iron/griddle.
Clearly we're still getting settled so until we get a good handle on what we need in the kitchen 'at-hand' and what we can store in the pantry things may change....but I'm just so excited to have a big space that is all our own.
Do you have a favorite room or space in your house or apartment?
