Small changes

I don't think I mentioned that at the end of June/beginning of July, Kate and I switched apartments. Same building, only difference is that now our sleep isn't interrupted by midnight apartment-length sprints by our upstairs neighbors (or their child, or their dogs). Well, that's a lie. It's not the only difference, but it is the most important one.

Another difference is that since we're on the top floor by the roof, some of our walls are pitched. It's made decorating interesting. Plus, Kate and I don't spend a lot of time at home. But it seems like any time one of us has a day off work or something, the apartment becomes a little more lively.

Last Monday, I did some Labor Day shopping with my sisters. Every time I'm at Ross I look at their gigantic wall hangings, because I think they're awesome. This time, I came across this:
Kate's an Audrey Hepburn fan (probably because they look like twins). I immediately thought of her, and it was a good price, so I bought it.

Then, on Wednesday I was sick, so it got hung up. Here's the wall from the other side. Sorry for the messy table:
I felt like I needed to add something, and I remembered a corner table I had sitting in the middle of my bedroom. It wasn't being used because corner tables don't fit well into slanting walls. Kate had recently bought a houseplant, and voila:

I'm no master decorator like Jen is, but I like the small changes. It feels warm.

I really love it. I'm glad you bought the art and you have way more eye for decor than you think! I like the new digs, plus the way you have the couches arranged and everything.

Looks really good. Who wants to come decorate my apartment now? ;)
