OK – maybe not so extreme. But I did spend the weekend repainting and refreshing my loft. Donnan moved out about two weeks ago and because I am continuing to live here, I felt a makeover was of utmost importance.
First, I moved my couch to the opposite wall from where its been sitting for the past several years and bought new pillows and candles to provide an updated accent. Of course, the move in furniture also required an extra long coax cable to permit my TV to move to the other end of the room as well.
Here’s a view of the new living room. I also retouched all white paint around the loft that had marks from furniture, pets and people moving around it for the past couple of years.
Sorry for the blurriness. It is wet and rainy here in San Francisco and I was losing my light when I shot these. Louie does look happy with the new configuration.
Second, moving upstairs to my bedroom, I added two red brown walls – one at the top of the stair landing; the other on the wall now hosting my dresser. It makes the master bedroom more cozy and intimate.
Third, I finally moved my office to the guest room. That room – due to collecting cast offs from other rooms in the house, extermination for bed bugs (still ongoing) and serving as the new home of my desk, etc. – is currently off limits for photos. Here are several views of the landing and master bedroom for your blog reading enjoyment (as a substitute)…
Last but not least, my view of the loft towards the door, guest room and master bedroom.
Many of you bitches have stood on the stairs at the left for a blogger photo back in 2006 (reminiscent of The Brady Bunch). I think I see Bea Arthur in there somewhere.
Gotta love changing your space – even a little. These days, who can afford to move? And my rent is now a bargain compared to when I moved in three years ago.
