This is the living room. The door leads out to a balcony, not an entrance. (remember there was a green/leafy rug in our last living room? oh and we had yellow walls that cast a strange glow. white is so much better)
opposite wall of the couch. on the right is one of the built-ins.
the built in. houses crafts, books, games and miscellaneous, "i don't know where else to put it" items.
love the doors though.
entry door. built-in right next to door. bookshelves on the right. (and below)
our books. karl did all the shelf styling- i'm so proud of him :)
a book written by karl's great-grandfather in norwegian (front copy,1926 ed). his grandfather translated it into english (back copy)
cool cloth-bound children's books by an english artist. picked them up at a bookstore going out of business for 90% off.
some more of our older books. i love old copies of classic children's books. i'm weird like that.
even though we've only been living here a matter of weeks, i've already switched the furniture around. which is hobby/obsession of mine.
the coffee table i picked up at goodwill for $10. still need to sand and repaint it.
my poor succulent that i had to replant and almost all of her leaves rotted away.
our little balcony. my basil plant is doing well. can't say as much for the rest of them. i always forget what plant i should water which days and which one i just watered. poor things. they've been through a lot.
