Living Room

 Dining area with our new shelf unit for showing off my tea pots and keeping glasses & dishes within quick reach.
 A 22" long glass cylinder votive holder (aren't those little candles great?) with the ambient lighting system Teenie bought (changes color and remote controlled)
 Entertainment center with 5.1 sound, Apple TV, HD-DVD (antique!) and my amazing TV. The Enterprise looks on with approval.
 The Mid Century Collection - a Mies VanDer Rohe Barcelona Chair (ca. 1929), Charles & Ray Eames LCW in walnut (ca. 1940), and two two-tiered tables finished in walnut (ca. 1960s). The tables are vintage, the chairs reproductions.
 Our bright red sofa/chaise lounge paired with our two 1950s side tables. A Nikki McClure print (Invest) on the wall in the hallway.
A view of the entire living room with my 30" panorama of the Los Angeles skyline hanging over my desk.

New seating

I ordered a new chair for the living room; it's a replica of the Charles and Ray Eames LCW (lounge chair, wood) plywood lounge chair. It compliments the other walnut furniture and mid century modern style of the apartment so far. It's actually very comfortable to sit in, despite looking solid.

A New Semester

This is a semester of firsts and lasts for us in the Bay; my first semester working at USF rather than being a student, Teenie's first semester off campus, and last before heading off to Budapest in the spring. It's Bunny's last semester at USF too, so to commemorate and celebrate all of our adventures as this year really takes off, i treated the three of us to dinner at the Woodhouse Fish Co, a delicious restaurant specializing in crab dinners.

Lampshades

It's surprising how much of a difference a lampshade can make. Pictures of the dining area will come later (when a house tour is ready), but a couple of weeks ago Teenie, Bunny and I replaced the simple shade with this one from Ikea (our go to store...)
It makes a huge difference in the feel of the room since there's so much more character to the fixture.

Finally Mobile

Blogger has finally released a mobile app for iOS, this means once again my photos and thoughts can be transmitted INSTANTLY via my phone; 4 years is a long time, but finally we've come full circle back to me blogging from a phone. First picture up, check out my new nametag for special occasions :)
