When we bought our apartment three years ago it had been flipped to sell by the previous owners, so we are essentially the first to live in the space. It has not been without it's struggles after three imposed 'renovations', but we have also been spoiled by a truly gourmet kitchen, heated bathroom floors, good closet space and nice details throughout (gotta love those crown mouldings). We can see the ocean from our living room and live in a walkable, up-and-coming neighbourhood, so it's hard to think where we should go from here.
The thing that excites me most about moving is getting to decorate a new space. It's unreasonable to expect that our budget will allow for all of the luxuries we've enjoyed in our current apartment, but I'm actually looking forward to meeting the decorating challenges that come with perhaps an older kitchen, smaller rooms and even less storage space. I am also excited about one day being able to create an awesome shared bedroom for two children, like these posted on Nursery Notations:
|A fabulous shared girls room featured in Spain's El Mueble Magazine.|
|Also from El Mueble, this could work for a brother and sister.|
|Paint, hardware, modern appliances and you're good as new!|
