This summer, G and I have decided to move on from our three-year relationship. It's hard, it sucks but in the end we know it's for the best. He has moved closer to his new job and I have started to decorate what is now my bachelorette pad in downtown Edmonton. I think it will be easy to claim this space as mine as we lived here together for such a little time.
The floor lamp was one we had from before that I got to keep (I traded the sound system for it) and the other tall lamp was a $28 score from the antique mall. I'm also really excited that I got to keep the credenza. The splitting up of our things was really amicable and grown up. I definitely feel like I got the bulk of the stuff (maybe G didn't feel like moving it :p)
I found a beautiful teal and gold sectional on Kijiji and latched onto it as soon as I could. For the bulk of August it was sitting in pieces in the living room while our other (also giant) sectional took up the rest of the space. I'm glad it's all organized now.
Garret's mom gave me her old sewing machine (I'm getting sewing night classes with my birthday money) and so I changed what was G's computer space into my crafting corner. I plan on painting the desktop another colour - maybe mint? Or gold? Who knows.
My house is on a big pink/mint theme, with some red and gold thrown in. Kitchy!
Now, onto the bedroom. It actually hasn't changed that much since I got to keep a lot of the furniture in here. Mainly, I just bought some purple sheets from Ikea.
My closet probably had the biggest overhaul. Since I usually don't put a lot in my dresser in terms of clothes, I was able to utilize it for some blanket/off-season storage space. I used to have yarn in here, but that's moved to the craft corner. Now it feels so much bigger!
Now, onto the kitchen and the bathroom. Again, these are rooms that don't have a lot of changes. Just some minor stuff, like moving things to lower shelves so I can actually reach them. :D
|Fun fact: I've had Audrey in the bathroom in every house I've lived in since high school.|
