Howdy Y’all. Our stuff arrived here in Ontario last week, and in a miraculous 24 hours we had everything fully set-up and ready to go! It definitely feels like home now, and we’re super happy with it all. It’ll be nice to live in a real “home” for the next 3 months before we head to Kuwait (and have even less to set-up house with!!). Here’s a little tour for you:
When you enter our apartment, the first thing you’ll notice is that you’re immediately in the middle of our apartment. You’re basically entering into our kitchen/living room.
One of our favourite things is our matching artwork from our Frienaissance (remember, that??):
My parents are super awesome and painted this whole apartment as a surprise to us. In case you missed the details, this is a basement apartment in my parent’s home. My grandmother lived here for the last 18 years but has recently moved into a retirement complex. The walls used to be pale green and pepto-bismal pink…not so cool. My parents would still like to switch out the carpet for hardwood and change up the countertops at some point, but for now, even with the walls painted it makes a huge difference! You might not be able to tell the colours from the pictures, but the walls are mostly a nice neutral beige and the wall with the fireplace is a chocolate brown.
Just past our kitchen is our bedroom and bathroom. And yes, you’ll notice there’s no bathroom door. It was intended as “nanny suite,” so basically when we have company we have to close our bedroom door so they can go to the bathroom in private. haha. It’s actually more funny that annoying to us.
So there you go! That’s our home! Actually, we like to joke and call it our “summer home” seeing as we’re living here for this summer and next summer (at minimum, depending on what we feel like doing in life!). :)
