La la la la la! Here it is! I’m excited to give you a walk-through when we’re all moved in and it’s decorated. For now, the quick snaps I grabbed while doing my tour. For those who are curious, we’re living in Regents Park apartments in Hyde park. Since I think they have 30+ floors and two towers with a doorman who won’t buzz you in unless you get permission from a resident I feel pretty safe letting you know that’s the area I’ll be in.
The living room that I dream of every night since I left. Let’s not talk about how I let TH convince me not to take my 5DMKII body and so I wasn’t able to use my 16-35 to capture the entire room the way I could have. I won’t be listening to him again.
The view out one side.
TThe view out the other.
I took some pictures of the furnished model so TH could see how nice it looked with painted walls (and a coffee table!)
This is meant to be the master bedroom, but I think we’re going to make it the office. We spend more time at our computer than in our bedroom, and the view is a lot prettier from these windows.
I gave up a LOT of closet place for those windows in the living room. TH will get a room of his own once he’s mobile. For now, he’ll sleep wherever is most convenient!
Sick I know, but the unit hadn’t been cleaned yet when I toured it so it will be much better before we get there.
Much better with paint and real furniture, isn’t it? (Hint, hint, TH). Good news? I think we’re going to get a bed frame so our mattress isn’t sitting on the floor anymore. Fancy right?
We’ll use this as our bedroom.
The kitchen. The other downside to this apartment is the lack of light in the kitchen. It’s a bit of a hole.
Lots of cupboard space though. Hooray!
I’m really glad I took a picture of this one with all of the finishing. TH is convinced that painting is necessary in this room after I showed him this (blurry) photo.
This place has a few fun perks like an indoor pool (!!!)
A grill right by the pool.
And a fancy pants gym that even has fitness classes throughout the week!
One last look at the living room. Sigh. I’m going to put the dining room table in the far corner of this photo, so when we eat we’ll be able to look out over the whole city. The friends who put me up while I was there apartment hunting are going to be the first people we invite over to dinner. That view will contribute toward a nice thank you, right?
