Our parents think we are nuts. Leaving a perfectly good, very nice single family home with a gorgeous yard on a great street to move into the second floor apartment of a 3-family house in the city. I mean, we were technically in the city before, but it felt like the suburbs ... in that I got in my car for everything, including my morning coffee.
The photo above was taken in the kitchen of our two bedroom apartment that is in walking distance to some of the best coffee and restaurants in all of Providence. We couldn't be happier here, and while we realize this isn't the choice for everyone we have been thoroughly enjoying the benefits of our new location.
This was a fun space for me to design - with super tall ceilings and a ton of natural light it was hard to go wrong. I did have an EXTREMELY tight budget, and I couldn't paint the walls a different color, but almost everything in this kitchen will be re-purposed for a future project or two so nothing will go to waste as we renovate this space into our master bedroom down the road. More on that later ...
