To finish up this series of guest posts, I have a really special treat - a triple room tour courtesy of Nicole, author of a fab new blog, Sketch42. And this is no ordinary home - she did a full on reno and has outifitted it with fabulously stylish pieces. The result is just wow worthy. Off we go...
Hey All, Nicole from Sketch42 here! I decided to give you guys a little evolutionary tour of my apartment since I moved in almost 2 years ago. There were tons of misteps and mistakes
along the way, and I am definitely not finished with it yet, but here is a little bit of the journey I took with this apt.
Everyone always seems to move when they are pregnant or have a new baby. I
was no exception. With a two week old kid, we signed the contract for this:
combining two apartments and extending the kitchen... This turned out to be a
never ending project. My kid is turning two in a month, and we are still not
done! We have come a long way since then, but I can still remember having white
dust on the hem of my jeans every day!
First, we added a beamed ceiling with lighting built into it:
Meanwhile on the other side of the room:
And through it all, the biggest issue was the kitchen. Because we combined two apartments, we also decided to extend the original kitchen to accommodate a bigger fridge, two ovens and a breakfast bar.
I lived for six months with NO OVEN and a mini fridge. (With a new baby, I might add.) Thank god for ordering in!
This is the kitchen in March 2009, when they FINALLY installed the appliances and countertops. You can see the mini-fridge still tucked under the countertop. (To get an idea of what the kitchen looked like before - it ended where the wall and beam are.
I hope you all enjoyed my little house tour... You can read about all of these adventures in more detail here.
