The other day, though, I took some pictures! What you should know about these pictures that is that I moved all of my crap from room to room so that the pictures looked okay. So for each lovely picture, know that the next room is filled with stuff. Ha!
The Kitchen! This had the most renovation. It was torn down to the studs, and all I kept was the fridge.
Those of you who saw my kitchen in Seattle will notice that this one is almost exactly the same. Why change what works?
The door in the back goes to my deck. I love my deck. Sterling does, too! She's been so brave.
My living room:
The picture below shows one of my storage closets. This is a great one: it goes really deep and has shelves.
This is alcove #1. In the summer, my window air conditioner will go in this window. For now this is Sterling's dining area. Note that she is eating -- one of her favorite activities! She loves to eat here. The window is so low that she can look out. Sometimes she sits there for a long time watching...who knows what.
My oh-so-snazzy electronics area! Of course, despite hours of trying I couldn't get my TV, the cable, my DVD player and my Wii to hook up properly. Thankfully one of my coworkers has a genius husband who came over and made everything work in about five minutes. Sigh...
My bathroom! It's oddly shaped, so sorry about the number of pictures. If you saw my bathroom in Seattle, you will recall that it was Pepto Bismol pink. I have switched to green!
The view from inside the bathroom into the rest of the house.
This is alcove #2. This one also caters mostly to Sterling. It has her litter box and a place for her to sit to look out this window. The box with the blue and white blanket is, cleverly, my air conditioner, patiently waiting for summer.
The two doors to the left are two more storage closets. The tall one is shallow, but the short one is also very deep.
This picture shows off my built-in bookshelves...
...and this one shows off the built-in linen drawers.
My "dining room." My Mom is the one who cleverly hung the cafe picture on a slanted wall. This probably surprises no one!
The view from the dining room to the inside stairwell:
Notice the random piece of floor under my purse rack. Sterling likes to sit there and peer at me as I come up the steps. Do you remember how Snoopy used to sit on his doghouse and peer over it at Charlie Brown? That's just what she looks like.
The view down the inside stairwell. I don't know if you can tell, but that skylight is huge.
Around the corner and down to my inside front door. Again, there's the random piece of floor. You can see how Sterling peers down at me.
Finally, the view from the stairwell up into my place.
Pictures of my bedroom and loft are to come. I got tired of moving stuff around.
