House Tour: Living Room

My husband and I live in what is basically a two-room apartment. You may be accustomed to roaming such open spaces as two BEDROOM apartments, but ours is basically two rooms.

I will pretend that our kitchen is not basically the same room as our living room, so that will not be included.

Living in a small apartment space has its’ ups and downs. We have grown to love it, and it’s simple and easy to take care of for two people.

This is our living space, where we hang out most of the time. We still have sort of a collected-along-the-way group of furniture, but we bought our first very own couch last year, after our old hand-me-down one had seen some better days.

My ultimate style for my dream house would be cozy/comfortable. I like rooms where you can stretch out with a book surrounded by windows and pillows. And when it’s cold, bundle up with blankets and pajamas.
Boba and Luna tend to face off sometimes They have a love/hate relationship. They’re not actually brother and sister, but they were raised together since they were a few months old.
If you are here for cuddles, Luna is all about them.
Greg complains that we have too many pillows. I stand by that we have just enough.

Our TV stand should get upgraded at some point in the future, but we have zero plans so far. This is a stand we got for our very first apartment; it was super cheap, but it’s stood the test of time so far.

This is a side table that we built ourselves. Not the sturdiest of furniture, but enough to hold our books, laptop, sketchbook, and tablets, so that they are not cluttering up the coffee table.
Also, notice how all the remotes are on the shelf. They will probably not stay there. My husband has a tendency of remote-walking, where he moves around a lot while he watches TV, and takes the remote wherever he goes.
I have a small vegan recipe book collection.

Our bookshelf – mostly, we only hold onto the ones we really like.

Mine, although we are both Harry Potter fans…

His… He’s into non-fiction war books; it’s not my kind of genre.

If my husband sits in this chair, a cat will most likely claim his lap.

That’s our living space! Sometimes I wish it were bigger, but most of the time I really enjoy having a small space that is easy to organize and prevents us from gathering too many things we don’t need.

What’s your ideal size space in which to live?
What’s your style of dream house?

  1. Yours looks like a happy house. Books and cats do help in getting that feeling. Am I the only living human who still didn't read the Harry Potter books? And I do read a lot!

    You Boba looks a lot like my Matilde.
