Don't you all like "before" pictures? Well, here are the "before" pictures of our new apartment in Japan. It's actually fairly large for there and I think it's going to be good. How about this crazy bright front door? This whole experience is going to be a "make it work" experience.
Their showers are basically the entire room. The toilets have their own separate room.
This is the view of the kitchen and the front entry hall from the balcony.
Still more stuff from the cleaning girl.
The yellow door is to the bathroom, the white door is to the back bedroom.
The door to the front bedroom and looking out of the living room through the balcony.
It has a south facing exposure which will always be bright and sunny. And hot some days.
The bedrooms are adjoining through two sliding doors. There is pretty good storage as well.
Exciting stuff! We are renting furniture and it is not particularly my style, but I'm determined to make this apartment feel like home. With all of the other details to figure out, I'm contemplating how I'm going to manage to decorate it. I cannot hang anything on the walls and the living room curtains are going to be beige. So, lots of beige, beige, beige. I'm formulating a plan as I type. Keep hanging around and see how it progresses. Moving is set for first of September!
