My condo





















A couple of people have asked to see what my condo looks like--here are some shots taken not too long after I moved in. I have since pulled out the last few boxes that need to be unpacked, so my place feels a bit crowded now--can't wait to get those put away so I can feel completely moved in. Alas, it will have to wait until my class is over, unless I'm super efficient and get ahead.

I plan to paint the wall in the living room that is currently green or white (depending on the section of wall, wall on the right in the bottom picture) a light beige. Also to paint all the kitchen cupboards white. Eventually I'd like to replace the carpet as well.

From top to bottom:
bedroom
bathroom
kitchen
my red wall--I have always wanted one
my balcony looking down
my balcony looking into the living room

Top selling points of my condo: a nice big balcony with an excellent view. It overlooks a duck pond and Japanese gardens, as well as a hilly residential area. Even in the winter, I can't see too much besides trees. When leaves are on the trees, that's all I can see--very nice!
Another selling point was a big storage unit in the basement, and a big bedroom. Back behind the bookcases is room for files and an open space. At the end of the bed, near where I took a picture, there is a big open space and room for a dresser.

All in all, I really love having my own space and it's just the right size for me!

Hi Cynthia,

Yes--it's the same! I love that couch and have carted it around whenever I have moved. Not sure if I'll ever get rid of it!
