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.
After entering the appartment we have a narrow hallway which leads to my living room.
Taddah!! here is my living room. From those huge windows I used to get the best view of Chicago downtown.
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.
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.
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.
