Is it painfully obvious that we’re trying to keep everyone entertained while holiday celebrations are distracting us from working on the house? We thought so.
Now that you’ve seen my little space in the big city, it’s time to show John’s Apartment on New York City’s Upper West Side. It’s second in the series of videos I shot for Kitty, my BFF who lived in Iowa at the time.
John actually edited this one down a little bit so you don’t get to see the living room. That’s because it was only a living room for a few days before they had walls built to create a third bedroom in order to accommodate a third roommate – a classic NYC trick for lowering your rent. It also doesn’t show the five flights of stairs you had to walk up to get there. We don’t miss them.
Here are some of the fun things you will get to see:
More free or cheap furniture finds
Another small kitchen that we were very proud of at the time
A lot of brown and blue (I finally made him tone down the masculine color scheme when we moved in together)
A cool, accent wall mural that we painted together based on our favorite album cover by The Shins
I couldn’t let this post go without a comment… And what’s more appropriate than a “Holla” RHONYC style? In my best Heather voice… “Holla!” :)
