First, the apartment itself. I see hardwood floors, big open spaces, two-toned paint. I'm seeing a reddish-brown kitchen with all-black appliances. In short, i'm seeing THIS:
Except with a little more red in the kitchen walls. In truth, the bedroom is the only other area I really thought about, and brit put his opinions in too. We agreed on this bed:
And the headboard to match:
Although, really, I wouldn't spend the money on a headboard like that. It's far too easy to build. Heck, it's just the right-size bookcase at the head of the bed! The nightstands and dressers I'm not too specific about... Just, obviously, matching and staying in the theme of black. Such as:
I'm not even sure if those are black. But it works for this. I think, with all this black furniture, I'd do light, maybe white or off-white walls, and a large, deep red or green area rug.
And not that the mattress has anything to do with interior decorating, but we're pretty set on splurging on a fabulous mattress like this:
...and i just find it amusing that we're looking at a $600 bed with a $1400 mattress. And the mattress is the part you eventually have to replace!
As for the living room and other areas of the house.... I won't go searching for more pictures. Except for the sofa. I want nice, comfy, overstuffed furniture, and a sectional sofa. I like this one:
...but I'd really prefer if we could find something that matches the green leather recliner Brit already has. I'm quite attached to this chair. The only other thing we looked at was entertainment centers, and we couldn't find the perfect one. Brit wants black with on-top seating for the giant flatscreen TV he thinks we're gonna have, and I want lots of storage space.
Anyway, I doubt we'll ever be able to afford to furnish my dream home, but it's a nice way to waste time and avoid doing homework.
