Oh, The Places You'll Live

Bedroom, Unpacked
The current Mountain View apartment, 2015.

[3/7/2012] I've been reflecting on the places I've lived...and the places I haven't. You see, I have now lived in my current apartment for 3.5 years, which is the longest I've ever lived any place, except for my childhood home. And it is time to move. We're actively looking for a new apartment, which means checking Padmapper like it's my job. It also means trying to reconfigure and combine the accumulated decor items from two households. It's a little bit daunting, as decorating my bedroom and living room the last time was quite the process. However, this time I'm not starting from scratch. I already have a bunch of pieces, I just need to remix them.

Time to start over again, but not.

Ooh, I love the orange with gray/black/white in your current bedroom! For some reason I've really been gravitating toward orange and gray color combos lately. Good luck with your apartment search!! :-)
