Apartment pics redux


We’re all moved in to our new apartment. Note that I said moved in, not settled. There’s a lot more to be done in terms of unpacking and arranging things. But we’re enjoying living here so far. Here is a look at one of my favourite rooms in the apartment:

It’s our office, and there is a tree that fills the picture window here. An amazing thing is that the large window actually is on a hinge, and opens. But we’ll probably not open it often, because it’s pretty scary to see such a big piece of glass swinging free. In case you can’t see in the picture, the tree is a maple — appropriate for us occasionally homesick Canadians.

And here is a look at two other great features of the apartment, in the living room: a fireplace, and a stairway to…a roof terrace. I’ll show you soon. But shhh — the cats don’t know about it yet.

  1. Wow! I can’t wait to see it in person!

    • Yes, we want to have you over soon. We have a dream of hosting a BBQ on Friday or Saturday, but we still have boxes everywhere…and no BBQ yet. But we’ll keep you posted!

    • It’s a very “Swiss” apartment, and so far we’re enjoying it a lot…it seems a better fit than our last ultra-modern one. You’ll get to see it in the spring!

  2. Oh my! What a lovely tree and isn’t it wonderful to be able to look outside to see green and no doubt colours soon? I can see why this is your favourite room but the fireplace sounds cosy and a terrace to boot. Luxury, I think.

    Boppy and I are leaving for a cruise to Hawaii on Sunday, 16 days from Vancouver and back to Vcr. This will be our delayed celebration of our 60th wedding anniversary – at last.

  3. I like the sound of a roof terrace! Looks like a beautiful apartment. Good luck with unpacking and settling in.

  4. Cool flat! A cheminee and a terrace… what else could you wish for?
