A peek into the apartment....

I haven't had a chance to take any pictures this week (or even think about what to blog about) because my little sister was here! You know, the one who made The most precious wedding gift. She came to visit me for three days and kinda wore me out. It was so fun though!

Anyways, I was looking through old pictures for something to share and I saw some of my lovely efficiency apartment that I took right away when we first moved in.

*Please note that I am considering doing an "Efficiency Apartment Tour" post in the future and by viewing these picture you will have already seen about half of it. ;) hehe




So here would be the bedroom area. This was when all of my Rachel Ashwell bedding was brand new and so sparkling white! Ahhh... :)




Here is a closer up image of the sign above our bed. My mom painted this sign for our wedding and it sat about some old "welcoming doors" that led to the ceremony area. I plan to do a post on some of my awesome wedding stuff later...because really, it was awesome. I won't even try not to brag because my mother is a creative genius. I'm pretty sure she should be a wedding planner....




And here is a not so glamorous picture of the end of the bed. One with cords and fans and closets and such. Sorry, but now you have a better feel for the space right? Ya see the chair? Well that is the living room ;).

After seeing this picture I know that most of you are jealous of my 19" TV, and I just want you to know that that is okay. You can be jealous... just please don't come and rob me. *yet another winky face*

Hope you enjoyed this little (actually quite large) sneak peek. More to come!


Blessings,
Olivia

  1. It's so cute! You made me remember the days when it was just my husband and me in a little place. I love the sign your mother made with the Song of Solomon. xoxo

    1. Thanks! Sometimes I get anxious to have a bigger place to decorate, but I am trying to be patient and content. :)

    1. Thank you! That is kind of where I picture this 19" tv going one day when we have a home with actual separate rooms :)

  6. (oh and I spent the first year of my marriage in a tiny apartment that I didn't like because it was "too new" and then a two bedroom townhouse for two years that I also didn't like because it was "too small" and "too new". And now I look back and am so sad that I could not find contentment there because honestly...I miss those days. Such a special time when it was just me and my husband making a life together. And I am rambling...only cause I know how you must feel but seriously...one day you will miss this apartment!)

    1. Aww thanks Alice! Yes, I do get pretty anxious at times to have a bigger space to decorate, but I'm sure when we leave here I will miss it because it is our very first place. I try to be content.... and looking at beautiful blogs like yours help to satisfy my decorating desires in the meantime. :)

  7. It's an adorable space. I decided to downsize and I have a cute and cozy little space that I really love. I don't have to worry about mowing 2 acres of land every week and keeping a larger house clean and spotless (because anything less would drive me batty). I too love shabby chic and would love to own one of everything Rachel Ashwell designed, lol, but... I guess you know that will never happen living in a small space :).
