Moved In

We’re officially moved into the new place! You don’t realize how much stuff you truly own ’til you move! The place is filled with boxes and boxes ready to be unpacked. I personally don’t enjoy the process of packing, loading the truck, unloading the truck, etc., but I do enjoy the process of unpacking. Probably because it involves organizing!

Now comes the process of getting settled in and making it feel like home. I can’t wait to transform the place.  This is what the living room/dining area looked like on the day we got the keys:

It’s a nice open layout. From the front door (which you can see on the right in the second photo) you step into a tiny entry and then into the living room. The dining area is adjacent and a sliding door leads out to the patio.  Both the living/dining areas are visible from the kitchen.  The floors are in good condition and there’s a working fireplace (yay!).

The color of the walls wasn’t bad, however it didn’t really work with our existing furniture and since it’s a relatively small space, I wanted it to feel as spacious and bright as possible, so decided to paint the walls a lighter color.  I went with Olympic no VOC paint in Horseradish which is a lovely creamy beige.  I didn’t get a chance to take a good photo of the freshly painted room, but as soon as I get some of the boxes out of the way, I’ll be sure to take one and share with you.

Off to catch up on some work then get a start on the unpacking. I’ll share some more updates later in the week!

    Congrats on the move! Packing is absolutely exhausting, but it’s a relief to unpack and finally organize again! I moved last year and couldn’t believe the amount of things I decided to donate.

    Can’t wait to see more of the space and the paint color your chose!

    thats not always the case;
    the first picture for example has so much detail!
