On a related note, we got the AT Boston job! In the end all 4 Boston finalists were hired and we're meeting up in person this weekend to discuss how this will all play out as we develop the Boston branch of Apartment Therapy. Wish us luck!

Less than two weeks in the new place and we're still unpacking boxes. The place is looking worse rather than better these days so we've only posted "before" pictures thus far (from moving day). We'll be documenting our progress as we settle in and make this place our own. Stay tuned.

A year later and all new windows
The windows are more about what they do to the interior
Almost unrecognizable from the original photographs, the house now has a strong presence and feels grounded and balanced. exaggerating the trim on the eaves of the roof of a small house helps give it a weightier feel and can look almost cartoonish in drawings but the effect is hard not to notice. What was a house with no character now asserts itself, not to mention all the windows opening up to a nice bucolic view. It is just a shell now but the interior should slowly take shape as funding permits. *girl and I will check out kitchens this weekend while we are IKEA getting little things for our apartment.

Goes wonderfully with our green stripe/floral curtains and new BluDot couches. The dining room is painted with the bluish green below which we spotted in an Apartment Therapy post. Thanks to the blogging world we were able to contact the girl who owns the studio and she gave us the custom paint code for this color. Its a happy medium between my old living room blue (also a custom mix) and *boy's green wall.
Pictures of these colors in our own apartment will follow soon...
