After selling our home in Colorado and spending five weeks on the road in Oregon, we finally landed in a small northeastern Oregon town. In some ways it reminds me of the mountain town we left.
View from our previous Colorado home. . .
View from our current Oregon apartment:
Kind of ironic, don't you think? I never really thought of Oregon looking like this, but it depends on what section of the state you visit. The northeast portion is arid, with lots of sunshine and low humidity.
So now we're here, and after making two offers on homes in the region and neither coming to fruition, we decided to lease an apartment. At least for now. (We've been without internet service for a month, so blogging and social media interaction came to a screeching halt. I'm glad to be back with you.)
In my last post I invited you to join me as I turn our apartment into a home. I snapped the following photos before we moved in and began work on our new place.
After moving from a 640 square foot home, this 1,600 square foot apartment seems huge. With its 11' ceilings, wood structural posts and large windows, the great room has an industrial look.
(The cutesy refrigerator magnets are no longer there.)
I like the cottagey bead board in the bathroom.
The bedrooms are large, but pretty bland.
See what I mean? Shaggy browny/tanny carpet.
But on the plus side I have a nice view from the bedroom that will be my home office/studio. And the deep window well suits me fine.
Notice the funky decrepit wagon outside. It needs a feminine touch. I wonder if I could cover it in roses.
Beyond the plain wagon is a better view.
I've been working on a lot of home decorating projects that I'll share with you in the coming days.
Hope your weekend is filled with joy.
