It's kinda amazing how different one apartment can look when it has two different residents. Here you can see a little retrospective of what the apartment looked like when I first viewed it (see: red curtains), compared to what it looks like recently (see: whiter lighting). It's tricky to view someone else's home and figure out how it will work with all your stuff in it, especially when you have so much more stuff than the current tenant. However, it's hard to go wrong in any space with hardwood floors and this many windows.
Pittsburgh is saturated with all these old steel-era buildings, with the kind of accents you don't find in modern apartment buildings: stained glass ceilings in the hallways, old school light switches, hardwood floors. Although, along with all these lovely details, we also inherit the not-so-great bits about living in an old apartment. That's probably better off being left open to the imagination.
An entire family probably once lived in this one bedroom apartment, where now two people reside. Although, I'm pretty sure all our crafting & camping supplies count as at least another human being or two!
'Here's to seeing potential, where there might not actually be any!
