House to Home...WIP

I moved into a new apartment earlier this May, some of you may have heard about it on the blog. It's a move that's happened after a long time and I feel like I am clearly out of practice when it comes to getting my act together and having the place up and running in no time. Two months down the line, and I have just about managed to find place for everything that I already possessed. Well in my defence, I did go off on a 3 week vacation in between and now I am off again for another four days (I am never going to get anything done!)

Ok so it may not be as bad as I am making it sound...a check list always puts things in perspevtive, so here goes:
1. Living room: 60%
2. Dining area: 80%
3. Kitchen: 95%
4. Master bedroom: 100%
5. Guest room: 90%
6. My work studio: 0%
7. Balconies: 50%

There, that doesn't look so bad! Definitely in the red as far as my studio is concerned (no wonder I never get anything done) but the rest is well on it's way. The fact that this is a slightly larger space means that I need to bring in some new elements and that's where the problem has been. Practically everything that I desire needs to be custom made...starting from furniture to curtains to shelving ideas for the kitchen. It would be so much easier if I could just walk into a store and buy it off the shelf...but then again, that's no fun, is it?

So while I am working on adding colour and character to my home, I thought that I should at least start by sharing the blank canvas with you. This is what the space looked like when we signed up for it in May this year...  

Hope you enjoyed this initial tour. Be sure to stay tuned to see how it's coming along. And if you have any ideas/ suggestions for me, I'd love to hear about it.
