Wish I could do this!

I might make some kind of attempt at this sort of thing in the far future :)


Just shots :)

Color inspirations

So far... these are just photos with color ideas to shoot for.. we'll see how it all comes together. The concept loosely is to feel like you are in the colors of a tree then moving back further into the apt the colors of what it would be IN the tree, so really a treehouse color concept. The rooms will be different but this is the "public" areas. Kitchen will be a goldy green (no photo example yet). The back room will be a pale gold color mainly but will eventually be covered in books and things.

Still not def on the bathroom or the middle room. The floors are being re-done a dark chocolate hue. Ceiling will be painted too! I love color, so I want there to be nice cozy colors everywhere. :)

Halls and entryway color inspiration (this is just a pic I found I don't own this :))

Colors I want in the livingroom, coppery green and blues with dark chocolate highlights.

A walk-through

Walking through the apt, inspector and RE asst there. This is from the balcony to the back. Most of the stuff is going, the kitchen table and chairs are staying since we actually don't have a kitchen table and chairs! The chairs are a pretty black the table is nicer under the ugly tablecloth.
The center room will be mainly Rick's/music stuff and the back mine and I will have my art table back there too. It will be pretty filled with stuff but all arts related :)

Balcony in the tree

The view from the balcony into the pretty tree.


Hello :) I am just collecting little videos and pictures of our new apt. So much stuff still needs to be done but I think it will be fun to have a record of what it started as, to what (I hope) it will become. We will always be people with lots of stuff (mainly me!), so don't think what it will become will be called minimal.. but it will be a cozy home! :)

This is right up the hill from the beautiful East River parks and path short walk to the Williamsburg Bridge if you wanted to ride a bike or take a walk over to the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn.

Here there are trees everywhere, parks and the co-op has a gym! I can try to exercise more :)
Pictures from the area!
