Our Minnesota Love Nest

some of you wanted to see our new place. we're not totally unpacked or organized or anything yet, but here are some photos.

LIVINGROOM BEFORE:




LIVINGROOM AFTER:

we were supposed to get a swanky microfiber sofa, but suddenly the store sold the one we wanted to someone else. WTF?
so we saw these two on craig's list for CHEAP so we bought 'em. i'm going to get slipcovers to make them pretty...as soon as i get a jobby job





phillip's DJ decks on a super hip glass table. awesome!

HALLWAY:


KITCHEN:





OFFICE BEFORE:


OFFICE AFTER:


DININGROOM:



we'll obviously need to get a nicer table


photos of the bathroom and bedroom are next. our bedroom just has a bed and a dresser in it. pretty pathetic. and it's completely white...something we don't really like. so we're deciding on what to do with it. i'd like to paint it, but it's a weird stucco and i'm afraid it'll look bad. and the bathroom is hard to photograph because it's so tiny. but i'll try to do it later on in the week.

anyway, here it is...we're very happy here. we just need more art on the walls and slipcovers on the furniture and then it will be RADICAL!

i know you all want to come over and listen to The Cure and eat fondue with us, don't ya? DONTCHA?

Amazing! After Boston you probably feel like you're in a mansion, there's so much space!

i love fondue...

love the colors. you can totally paint the stucco stuff. get a roller with a wooly looking nap to fill the holes.

have fun :)!

paige-

hell yeah! it's almost like we don't know what to do with all the room! it's awesome.

nita-

i'll lok into that. there are patches where the stucco stuff has fallen off, so i think the paint would look weird in those spaces. and i don't know if i want to get into repairing stucco! :)

Welcome to MN, the land of kitchens with no counter space.

Looks like a lovely place. Good luck on the job hunt, I've totally got my fingers crossed for you.

Oh -- and try the fresh roasted coffee action at your nearest local Dunn Bros. Very good stuff. There's one on Hennepin and 34th.

You want to be a contributer to the Mpls Photoblog?

That is MY Dunn Bros., the one at 34th & Hennepin. Hey, if you ever think you recognize me, come on over and say "hiya." Okay?

I love the color of your living room, though, I'm biased because mine is the same color :)

Congrats on your move!
