home sweet flat

I've been promising my Mom that I'd send pictures of my flat ever since I moved in waaay back in March. But I stalled and stalled because there was the matter of the manky sun-bleached-stained yellow walls to contend with and even mankier furniture (the pièce de résistance being a cream futon from the early 90's with a proclivity to slide to the floor like a slug when you tried slump into it), and well, painting and redecorating takes time (especially if you're me). So, it is not until these many months later that I have pics for her - and you, of course.

Kasey found the chair and the picture/collage is mine - still very much a work-in-progress.

We turned an odd rectangular notch of space into a dining alcove. The woman's portrait that you see in the middle of the wall, while often mistaken for a member of my family, is actually Her Lady Black Pear by Cassandra Barney from the last post... proud to say, one of the first paintings she ever sold! The rest are all my amateur doing.

We can't forget the minty hall... yet another work in progress.

And Mom, don't worry - bedrooms are forthcoming....
