So here is the actual new place. Yea, it's a far cry from the other "new" place I showed you a couple of weeks ago. Still, it really is a great place. It's huge for an apartment (1400sqft,) and it's quirky (in a good way.) I'm still a little heartbroken over the other one. But, I definitely think that this one will be a better fit for us.
It is in an old row house in Hoboken, which used to be a Barber shop. The pictures are really terrible. It's got a great deal of space, and a crazy amount of closet space (IMPORTANT for city-living.)
The kitchen is quaint and charming. I have plans for it.
Above is the second bedroom (which you can reach by climbing the spiral staircase shown in the first picture. It has a separate full bath. I think it could be a really great space once, it is de-Barneyed/cleaned out.
This is much coveted (in the city) outdoor space. It will be great to have a place to do a little furniture painting once the weather warms up some.
In all honesty, I'm a little overwhelmed by everything that has happened in the last month, and that's just personally. I don't love this place like I did the other...but, I think I can make it into someplace I enjoy.
On another note, I wanted to send a big thank you to...both Casey at Loft and Cottage and Careen at Inspire My House Pretty, who were kind enough to bestow upon me the honor, of the Stylish Blogger Award. I have to say, it makes a girl feel good.
So, that's what is happening over here. It's going to be a very busy next couple of weeks, as we will be packing, repainting the old apartment (back to white,) and moving in the new place by January 29th. I'm trying to gear up to get ready for it, and still stay sane. Hopefully, it will all go smoothly, and painlessly. One can only hope.
