You know that new book reader at Barnes & Noble? Well, I love the way it looks. So, I decided to make a nook all of my own. We just re-arranged a few things in our little place and it made all the difference! I love it when that happens. Plus, a little green-ery always goes a long way!
We added these curtains a few weeks ago. Light pours in while filtering the outsiders looking in. The blinds that come with the apt are the plastic, beige, vertical ones that break. I just thought a little more light would do the trick, especially since I don't always need people looking in while I'm trying to get the light! haha They're so light and airy. It makes us happy :)
This chair fits in the little nook very well! When we have people over, we pull it out, and wha-la. A great sitting arrangement. We have a wrap-around couch that sections off the living room and kitchen nicely. We were really lucky to finally have a non-carpeted kitchen space here. Thank the stars!
This is another favorite section of mine. We got those hexagonal wall hangers for free, and the mirrors - do you recognize them? Cheap = IKEA. The curtains are also from IKEA. The figurines are from some very special people. One of them actually reads this blog from time to time. I'm still as grateful as ever. Thanks :)
