Used To Be My Bachelorette Pad

Before my wedding (last year) I used to live in Chicago downtown and used to share one bedroom appartment with a roomate. It was sad to say goodbye to my bachelorette pad and come to Virginia. I live in a county where everything is new or under construction. I am still exploring small nooks and corners of this place and making new friends. As I was sorting through all of my pictures today I found some of my appartment pictures and felt little more sad but then I thought it is a better way to introduce my bachelorette lifestyle where you live with a limited amount of furniture and things so that you can thrash them easily and relocate to a different place.

So come inside, kick your shoes off, grab a glass of wine and I’ll show you around.

Here are the Presidential Towers of Chicago where I used to live.

Appartments where I used to live.

After entering the appartment we have a narrow hallway which leads to my living room.

Hallway to enter the living room

Taddah!! here is my living room. From those huge windows I used to get the best view of Chicago downtown.

My Living room and the best city view from the window…Ohh!!! I miss it so much 😦

Another view of my living room where you can see I have used the basic furniture so that I can thrash them if I relocate to some other place and also my beautiful painting.

Next to my living room on the left hand side is my kitchen, I don’t have perfect picture but you can peek little.

My Cute little plant and small peak of my kitchen

As I was living in one bedroom appartment with my roomate, I choosed living room as my space because it was a huge room and the best view of the city. So I divided my living room into two parts, on the right side I have created a space to hang out with my friends/family and on the left side I have created my bedroom. To divide both the rooms I have added huge drapes (from Ikea) which I sticked them on the ceiling using Gorilla glue. It was ton of work but well worth it. I wish I would have taken the pictures of the drapes and the split of the room. The reason why I choose to glue because we are not allowed to drill anything in the walls and I didn’t want to spend too much.

My cute little bedroom

Even though we used to live in an appartment with no balcony (I believe for safety reasons the builder didn’t add them), my roomate and I used to have few plants here and there in our appartment. Here is my cute little curry leaf plant which has been moved to california (my parents house) after I moved to Virginia.

and here is the awesome view which I was talking about, Perfect view of ‘Sears Willis Tower’ as you can see in the picture.

I was little sad when I was leaving the appartment, lifestyle, my girl friends and offcourse the city but I am so greatful to the God that I found the love of my life and started making our little Jhopri (house) more colorful.
