The Chicago Place

Since this was not a really exciting day (we went out and bought pj’s) I thought it was about time to share pictures of the place. Not exactly all set up or organized pictures since these were taken a few days ago, but still they are pictures.

Exposed brick walls, hard wood floors, a lot of built in storage and, for some reason, a mirror backing on the interior partial wall which encloses off a den space. The Gwen is thrilled at having another dog in the place with her but has not yet figured out why that golden retriever won’t share toys and seems to do exactly the same as her, even dropping things.

Which means that after all that hard work, Gwen has found a comfortable location out of the way, underneath the breakfast bar in which to tuck herself.

Moving on – walking into the place right now you get a lovely expanse of window, wall, polished floors and open space.

The kitchen area is on the left hand wall as you enter, once past the small coat closet and the two utility cupboards.

I didn’t photo the den space, the bathroom or the built in storage along the hall going down the right hand hall toward the sleeping space. Courtesy of some friends (college roommate of George’s, truth be told) we have been sleeping on a double layer full size air bed for the last few days.

And then I mentioned the bedroom closet?

    It looks gorgeous. My first apartment in Chicago was a huge one floor in a brownstone, with lots of windows, light, a fireplace, built in bookcases, best kitchen space I ever had. I loved it. Her space reminds me of that …

    Looks very nice actually…I like the wooden floors

    I’m a big fan of home decor shows and mags. Recently, they featured pillows; and the hand knitted ones were going from $80…just a thought for you.

    a nice place to land there once fitted out with furniture. It has a really nice, useful layout, not cramped, very full of light. You know, I think 1200 is bigger than my house! This looks to be 3rd floor? In the open space there is a deep window? Or is that a door (to a balcony?)

    How did she score such a great place? It looks like a loft in an older factory building. Love it!

    The Internet is a wonderful place – it lets you search real estate and condos from afar!
