How We Dwell
Yes. I’m posting photos of our place again. I hope you’re not sick of seeing our apartment pictures… I want to document our place before we’ll move out of this current place in less than two months. Please bear with me…
Here are some photos of our master bedroom. I wanted to put up something above our bed, but the budget I had was low. I wanted to put two picture frames on there, but it was going to be more than I wanted to pay. So, what you see on this photo was the budget solution for me. At my favorite store, IKEA, you can find TYGLÖSA frame and fabric. I put them together following instructions and voila! I felt very crafty although it only required a little labor to do it.
I have this basket in our bedroom to store items I want to get rid of. Currently some of my clothes and a few pairs of shoes I am giving away are in the basket. I love those gold sandals, but I’m parting from them because the colors that look the best for me are summer colors according to the color analysis. People with summer colors should wear silver, not gold. I’ve always thought that my skin never looked good with gold, so it all made sense. So, bye-bye my favorite sandals…
I used to have a basket on top of the bookshelf and we had piles of documents and magazines filed, which was showing. It didn’t look good, so I bought those magazine files at IKEA. This allowed me to use the space on top of the bookshelf and organize the mess without creating space in our tiny apartment to store the clutter.
I have posted some photos of our living room before here. The photos actually do not show how our place usually looks. I had butterflies on the candle holder in the photos posted in March just because I hosted a baby shower for my dear friend in that month and used those butterflies as decoration for the baby girl. I also had hina dolls out on the bookshelf on the right photo above instead of the candle holder. The photo was taken around the time for Japanese girls’ day. Now we have simple candle holder.
We’ll send most of the big pieces of furniture we own to a storage here in the U.S. when we move overseas this summer. It’s weird to imagine that we might not see them again for years.
