My New Flat

Well, here y'all go. A peek into my new flat. I'm still adjusting to the new title of "Homeowner" but I think that it might suit me just fine. Now off to paint! And move in! And buy a load of furniture! Oh boy, what have I done?

Laurel said...

now that I've sold my place and am renting again, I feel the need to say that homeownership is SO overrated.

I feel the need to say it...but I can't. Because it's not.

LOVE THE PLACE.
Congrats!

So when are you going to have a house warming? And when do I get my own private tour? I am so incredibly jealous of you. Congrats!

Oh. My. Goodness.

That is one beautiful/charming/perfect place. The details are *amazing*.

Congrats!

jane said...

Wow!!!!! It's so gorgeous; I'm very jealous. It's got bags and bags of character, I can totally see why you fell for it. The outside of the building is so beautiful too, it reminds me of the mansion blocks in London which I'd so love to live in!

Happy painting and shopping and moving and settling in :) So exciting!

sula said...

Simply delightful! I'm so excited for you, and wish you the best in the moving/painting/decorating/buying fun (I also wish I could help--I love to paint!)

I've always loved that building. The flat is wonderful and roomy. You'll love having it painted in colors to suit you!

Jealousy. There is only one word to describe the feeling pulsing through my veins at the moment. Just pure jealousy. Love the new flat!!!

Windybrook Spinner said...

It's wonderful. You have very good taste.

Adam and Bri said...

I love it! And we can't wait to help you come move into it.

Love you!

Durrett Family Band said...

No way! That is so close to our old apartment. It's gorgeous. I've already found a house warming present for you. You just need to send me your new address. Brandon went to dinner at Elder Haight's condo in that building when he was on his mission. Small world.

ali said...

Beautiful (I was going to say "lovely" but it was already taken).

I actually like the black walls and the bright yellow... it's a good thing I'm a confident girl or I would be second guessing my style right about now.

Thanks for posting the pictures, it looks like a great place, I love the building too.

Zonda said...
