Well here you go...
the very first peek at my new and somewhat temporary living space
Yes my friends...I'm going condo!
We have decided to make the most of the horrible Real Estate market conditions in California and rent for a while....not really sure what a while is, but more than likely it will be until I go completely bonkers from the beige walls
Everything is beige...walls, ceilings, carpet, floors....all beige...everywhere you look...beige
That is of course except for the black toilet...yes I said black!
I didn't even know it was possible to order a black toilet and why would anyone want one?
Well clearly someone did and now I will be looking at it...
luckily this is a powder room and I can close the door
Interesting sink too...sort of has a little Vegas Vibe
don't you think?
Guys seem to sort of like this bathroom...wonder why?
This is the living area
More beige with the fireplace accented with black granite,
I guess to match the toilet
As a designer I always tell clients...what ever color your toilet is you will need to use that same color for your fireplace surround
Makes total sense...really...really?
Notice the little yellow box? I stole that from the house I just sold...and why did I pick that box?...too weird!
The very first thing I did when we moved in was to remove these giant shutters to let in more light.
It's that "handyman gene" coming out in me again...notice the cordless drill on the floor...just couldn't help myself!
I felt this insane need to start fixing and changing things, within the first 5 minutes!
I swiped a lamp too!
Here is a peek at the kitchen...not too bad
The stone makes me a little dizzy however...
One of the better things in this condo are the built in areas...there are lots.
Storage is always a plus when you are a renter...which I haven't been for quite some time, but I'm learning fast!
It has two bedrooms, but both are good sized, another plus...and there is a little bit of a view of Newport Harbor
Here is the master bathroom...no black toilet
Standard issue sliders and fuzzy carpet...
mirror, mirror on the closet....
Maybe I'll start dressing better with these big mirrors...nah
A very nice second bathroom with beige stone
How long do you think I will last?
Note to self: buy a couch
