The wood fire place was a nice feature - we love the metal grate. It was rough, but it had good bones. We still need to replace the windows as the seal as broken so the top pane is foggy, but it works - keeps the cold and the rain out and lets the light in! And the reveal! I love the 5 panel door that was original to the apartment with the glass door knob.
drum pendant from West Elm that our friend Ben installed. I wish we had taken a picture of the floors before we rolled out the carpet - they are really beautiful - but we love having a nice plush carpet to walk on. I also love the gray walls - they really make the white trim really pop!
The window shades are from Home Depot - I think they are 5+ years old - we've used them in about three different apartments - I love how they filter the light and reference the color of the wood framed bed.
The full height mirror we added (another Ikea find) centered on one of the molding framed panels. Hudson loves to look at himself in the mirror so we needed one at his height. All the block prints we picked up at Yee Haw three or four years ago.
Irene Suchocki that we got off of Etsy. They are photography prints on silver metallic paper - they have a painterly quality that I love. We definitely felt like we had a lot of art to hang and not enough places - this apartment didn't have the long hallways that our last two places had, so we got to fill the rooms with art which was nice.
We had the radiator painted dark like the doors. We have white covers on order and the dark radiators will be in shadow behind the grating. They are custom made to order - hopefully worth it.
We removed the closet door and added a curtain for easier access. The original door was a hollow core door - not worth saving. The curtain matches the doors which is a happy accident. That curtain is from Ikea (we used the other one to line two window shades) and we had this one left over. One Umbra tension rod later, and we were in business. The other thing (you can't see) we added to the closets were motion sensor LED lights we found on Amazon. Our friends at the 12 foot house *love* lights in closets. We didn't have it in the budget to hardwire ours, but the battery operated ones we found are great and at under $30 for three are worth it!
Stay tuned tomorrow for a tour of the entry and "future office" area!
