A Peek Into My Home

I was just making my weekend list a couple of days ago, and I can't believe that the weekend's almost over. I was able to accomplish a couple of things on my list, so I feel good. Unfortunately, my appointment to visit the prospect apartment didn't push through as they didn't call to confirm my appointment in time. They said they will call me to set up another date. I guess this is one hint of how management is like in that apartment complex.

Anyway, I picked up a few seed packets for my planned balcony garden, so when the temperature finally settles down, I'll be able to start with my green project. Most of my time was spent purging, organizing, and arranging my apartment. Here are two photos:

This is my small dining room. There were newspapers scattered all over the floor, so I finally bundled them for recycling. I like to keep my dining table simple and clean, and I just love how I can look out through the glass walls while having breakfast or lunch. It's the perfect place to drink tea especially when it is snowing or pouring rain outside.

Here's the busiest nook in my place, the entertainment/living room. I've just built that small bookcase, and it makes the corner a lot "homier." I like to keep my life simple, and I prefer less furniture. If you live in an apartment, it's easier to move with less baggage. Spaces and being able to breathe is most important for me.

Do you believe that a person's home is a reflection of his/her personality. What do you see?

  1. Thanks for sharing these pix. I love, love your dining area. Nakakarelax. Since the entertainment area is the busiest, I assume you're also fond of watching DVDs/TV like me, loves to flip a book while munching on some yummies, etc.

  2. Should not every apartment in which man dwells be lofty enough to create some obscurity overhead, where flickering shadows may play at evening about the rafters? These forms are more agreeable to the fancy and imagination than fresco paintings or other the most
    expensive furniture.

  5. Wits, I never go that nook without yummies. I usually just slide my sofa and start playing with the Wii.

    Angeli, Thank you. Although the flickering shadows might give me a fright at night. I scare easily...lol.

    Artemis, Yes, I love having a balcony, and I really think that simplicity makes my place homey.

    Kero, I love, love Ikea. That sofa's probably the most used chair in the apartment.

  7. Oh, this so reminds me of Faith Popcorn and cocooning! Your home is a picture of serenity. Mine would have been too, if I didn't have a four-year-old tornado :p

  11. Nice to see your lil nook and cranny, Kayni. I love the minimalist approach. Very homey, less clutter and a lot of space to move around.

    And yes I believe that a person's abode reflects her personality. After all it is the only place where you can simply be yourself.

  16. Thanks for sharing. Your place looks very cute & neat. Living in an apartment for me a balcony is very NB. It gives me the illusion of having more space and if I need 'fresh' air I can go and sit/stand outside... Hugs, xx
