Still working on a Place For Everything, but I'm really pleased with the new layout of our apartment.

My S.O. has been designing and setting up The Media Room. Other people might have a "living room" or a "Family room". We have a Media Room. He set shelves into the wall above the Couch of Doom so that we can project onto the opposite wall. He also put up speakers and hopefully we can get the surround system working eventually.
We're planning to put books, DVDs, and gaming materials in that room, in addition to "kitchen overflow". My tea things are likely to go in there, along with unusual dishes, special party goods, etc.

The middle is the masterpiece. Er. I mean the Master Bedroom. It's the only bedroom, though I've now slept in each of the rooms except the kitchen. (Time for a post-meal nap?) We have a mantelpiece for a headboard. It's the first thing you really see when you come up the stairs. You should see that thing lit up with candles; it's glorious. There will be some fine-tuning in there (there are two dressers that need to switch places, I think) but as it is it's gorgeous.

The front room is now my Studio. It's not ready for me to *use* yet, but it will be, oh yes, precious. I'm still working out the positions of the bookcases and other furniture, but it's going to be a pretty phenomenal space. And the one window will KEEP it's pirate flag. (Yes, you can find my place by looking for the pirate flag in the second floor window. Is anyone surprised? I thought not.) It's also the largest room in the house and part of me is still dancing gleefully.

Other than the horrific storage problem (I seriously had two bedrooms devoted to nothing but storage) I'm quite pleased with our space. in truth, I was only using a bedroom, the living room, and the dining room of the Mint Cookie for my living space anyway.

Of course, there are drawbacks. When the weather doesn't dip below 90 at night, it turns out that even the central A/C can't keep up with it on the second floor. It gets WARM in there, man. So we complained to the landlord and he sent a maintenance guy to check it out. Their solution was to deliver a brand new window unit. Now I know why all the windows seem to have random wood scrap; I'll bet the previous tenant had window units on top of the central A/C, too.

And the bathroom continues to be entirely too small, but the kitchen is HUGE, so that kind of makes up for it.

All this points to one thing:
UNDERWEAR PARTY. This is THE place to throw an UNDERWEAR PARTY. Everyone, go find your most comfortable, most entertaining underthings. Sometime soon we're all going to lay in a big pile and watch something weird.
