As of this week, I finally feel pretty settled in the new apartment. A woman from Task Rabbit came by Monday to put together my IKEA bed frame for me, and it was worth every penny to not have to tackle it over the course of six hours. It took her four, and she knew what she was doing.
Some people have asked, and so here’s some photos of my new Portland apartment — a place where it’s just me and lots of lovely blue things.
Pretty blue door, leading into hallway, passing bathroom and large mirrored closet. Kitchen entrance at right.
Kitchen counters, storage.
Kitchen art, plus fridge and stove.
Kitchen table/additional counter space, which can also serve as a breakfast nook…
…or a writing station. Ottomans are stored below the table (and also contain guest bedding).
Small couch sits up against the other side of the kitchen table.
Bed is full size, as a queen was questionable for the space.
The bed is separated from my home office by a curtain that matches the one covering the window.
Bed and office, in split view.
Home office, view one…
…and view two.
Cube shelves are next to the office. Maybe a TV will go there, maybe not.
My bathroom pretty much looks the same as the one I had in Albany Park, my brother pointed out.
The fan in the bathroom loudly runs whenever the light is on. It drives me crazy, so I bought this clip lamp, which I use most of the time instead of the overhead light.
