New Digs

Here’s a few pics of the new place (I found it a little difficult to photograph, plus there's a bit of extra unpacking clutter around, but you'll get the idea). Decorations/pictures aren’t hung up yet, and we might be upgrading some of our furniture soon, but this should give you a view of the new digs.

Our old view put us looking out over noisy 3rd Street, with the Nordstrom’s sign glaring into our window at night. The traffic meant that our balcony was covered in filth, and wasn’t very usable.

Our new apartment overlooks the pool, so while we will probably have to deal with some noise on the weekends for another month or so, it’s still much more peaceful. We are also on the top floor, which means we get some extra light.

** if you had x-ray vision to see through the opposite side of the building, you’d be staring right at the Hollywood sign, and the Griffith Park Observatory. **

The extra bedroom allows us to have more storage room, and really frees up the living room. It’s nice to not feel so cramped in, without a lot of clutter around.

And what’s this? My own closet? Fabulous! My clothes are quite happy with their extra breathing room.

All in all it’s a definite upgrade, and I think although moving is quite a headache, it was all worth it.

Wow! The kitchen area looks amazing...the closet is great too. LOVE the new apartment. It feels more like a home than the Palazzo. Congrats!

The kitchen, closet, and extra room are worth it. Nice move!
