City Living - Our Condo Tour

First of all, thank you for all of the prayers for Boston. It's still a surreal, tragic event. And I am so proud of how we've all come together during such a sad time. Boston really isn't just a city, it's one big family and I absolutely love that about the city I call home. My sister posted a link to this blog post yesterday and it certainly made my eyes water. 

I've been blogging for over a year now and have yet to give you an official tour of our condo. It is so hard to photograph 700 square feet! That is, unless you are a professional.

As I mentioned Friday, J & I put our condo on the market and held an open house this past weekend. First of all, the open house was quite the success! We've signed an offer!! Our realtor told us it was basically a frat party over here with more than 60 groups of people passing through our small space. Yikes!

So now that I have the professional listing photos, let's do this. I'm pretty sure the majority of my readers have visited our condo at some point, but for those of you who have not let the tour begin!

Entrance/Kitchen Area

When you walk up the stairs into our place (we're the penthouse what what, but our entrance is on the second floor) this is what you're greeted with. The wide open kitchen. This is one of my favorite things about our place.
We also lucked out that the condo was completely renovated before we bought it. We can't take any credit for the floors, granite counters, appliances, etc.
We did install the bar area, which will stay here. We found it in the kitchen section at Ikea and installed their wine glass holders to the bottom. Best idea ever!
View from the corner of the kitchen towards the entrance/J's desk area, the bedroom, and the bathroom

Living Room

Off the kitchen is technically our second bedroom. But for us, it has been a living room, and at times a guest room. For some reason, these photos make the room like BRIGHT blue. Trust me, it's much more soothing in person. It's Benjamin Moore Ocean City Blue.


When we first bought our place, I thought it was kind of strange to have hardwood floors in the bathroom. But I've gotta say, I love it. The way the cherry floors travel throughout our entire place is pretty gorgeous. 
After seeing this photo, I switched out the hand towel for a pale blue one before the open house. A little more soothing.


And lastly, our bedroom. It's small so the goal was light, airy, and relaxing. I think we did a fairly good job accomplishing that.
 Told you it was small.
 And a pretty huge bonus for city living, a walk-in closet. This was my SOLD moment when we toured this condo. I have a feeling many girls had the same feeling during this weekends open house. Closet space is so hard to come by in the city.

Worlds shortest home tour? Easy to do when you have only 4 rooms ha. 

I'm going to be sad to leave this place, our first home. But I am so so excited for what's coming next. Details to come, just not yet. Sorry!
