So today I went to look at this apt building that is HUGE. The good thing, though, is that you dont have to stay on a top floor AAAAAAND, they have balconies so if you had to, you could get out easily IF you are on a lower floor. yes, I think about these things
Sadly, I forgot my camera to take pics/video but may go back if we talk to the guy. There were only a couple things on the list of being here that we would miss and those would be forgotten with the addition of a laundry room with separate washer/dryer,open balcony,nice gym,rooftop pool with nice view,quiet building that is farther down from where I live now and closer to my job,underground parking. Um, why am I hesitating?
Well, We say we would miss our second bedroom but we have no kids and could manage without it. I sketched out the floorplan upon returning home and walked through my house to see what Id have to sell.All these things are not even a year old and with all the new teachers coming in, Im sure it wouldnt be a problem.But on the flip side, if/when we do have a kid,what then? On top of that, we have to turn in a paper before we leave stating whether we intend to stay here. If not, we have to start looking for a place.What if this place doesnt go through...can we say, "ok,we changed our mind and want to stay where we are." ? Thats an added stress I dont care to endure.
Having said that, I could most certainly go on to my next design ideas. Over the course of my lifetime Ive decorated my home in various color palettes and styles,ie African color paletter and West African art, brown and green color palette with repurposed items by yours truly, and now a minimalist look with purples,greys,blacks, and browns.
If/when we move again, it will be a color palette possibly like one of these:
|the color palette,not the picture|
|only because my couch is grey and the place has brownish grey accents|
Im really in love with the colors of Moroccan or Indian decor. Places like Pier 1 or World Market are my inspiration.Whats better is that those same types of pieces are here but a lot less expensive.Im still amazed when i see pieces for 300-1000 dollars that I know would be triple the price at home.
Anyway,enough day dreaming and window (computer) shopping for one evening.
We'll find out what we can and act accordingly and I pray that it will work out either way.
