Cap Hill Home
Well, it took me long enough, but here are photos of our new apartment in Capitol Hill. It’s 800 sq. ft. with 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom. It’s “loft-style,” meaning there are high(ish) ceilings and no doors. Well, there’s a door to the bathroom, thank goodness.
Going from a 2600 sq. ft. house in Houston to an 800 sq. ft. apartment was a huge adjustment, but surprisingly, we LOVE IT. We use every. single. foot. of our living space and it’s made us really rethink about what we buy and what we own. There’s no room for unnecessaries, so our purchases and belongings have to be a lot more thoughtful.
I’m not going to lie, we could definitely use a TINY bit more space. A walk-in closet would be nice. And a proper eating area. But for now, it’s pretty comfortable.
Hallway entrance, washer/dryer on the left.
A gift from me to Husband, purchased from Etsy.
With such a small space and so little sunlight during the year, white on white turned out to be a good way to brighten up a room.
We built our long workstation from a butcher block countertop cut in half and table legs from Ikea. The shelves are also from Ikea.
I like keeping countertops empty. That tiny cluster in the corner drives me crazy. I would put everything in drawers and cabinets if we had any space left.
Since we had to downsize from a California King to a Queen, we decided the dogs couldn’t sleep with us on the bed anymore. BEST DECISION EVER.
SHOES. Fancy shoes in boxes, boots and shoes regularly worn kept out. Flats and sandals are in the bin.
WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS: my makeup station. Har har har.
This is so horrifying to me. I miss having a real closet. =( I’m actually pretty proud of myself for keeping my wardrobe contained in this small space. That shelf has collapsed before and all my clothes fell on the floor.
