Ladyplace: Full Before Apartment Tour
here’s the full before home tour.
Upon walking through the front door, you’re greeted by this little entryway. Bedroom is straight ahead, living room is on the left. There’s a closet door to the right that you cannot see.
isn’t she lovely? hah needs some tlc. i emailed the landlord and have full confirmation to move forward with painting the cabinets white. some pretty marble shelves above the stove for spice storage and this will come together in no time.
as seen from the front entryway – bed will be on that wall straight ahead. corridor doorway seen on the left.
looking back at the entryway. closet door on the left.
looking through the lil carrie bradshaw closet/corridor to the bathroom.
bedroom/bathroom corridor with built-in storage and vanity. or as i like to call it, my dressing room.
the bathroom – love the tile.
and the floorplan to help make sense of it all! (not to scale)
the pups and i are all settled in in large part thanks to redi-box, i was 95% unpacked and set up within 24 hours of arriving sunday night. you rent plastic moving boxes, they drop them off at one house, then pick them up a week later at your new location. redi-box is only in chicago and the surrounding suburbs, but most major cities have similar companies.
i cannot tell you how happy i am already. this apartment is beyond perfect for me. it’s charming, cozy, and all my own. i cannot wait to decorate this lil nugget. and the neighborhood… i feel like i’m in fairytaleland. beautiful brownstones, armitage ave shopping, lincoln park restaurants, two el lines, and parks all in walking distance, and trees galore! i feel so… home.
i’ll have plenty of photos documenting the move and the settling in phase, showing how i decided on furniture arrangement and what not. but you can catch a lot of sneak peeks if you follow my instagram: @alainakaz!
