Settling in: Progress.

The start of what could be a nice little gallery wall

The photo on the right is of Kyle's great uncle. I wish I'd taken a photo of it without the reflective glass in front - its a) incredibly stylish and b) filled with great textures. I want his glasses.

Amsterdam picture from Ikea. Although I'd rather have something more unique, those pieces will come over time, and we already have and like this, so it works. Before I go painting the wall I'm going to replace the throw pillow covers with dark gray and see whether I can achieve some sort of tonal grayscale effect in the room.

Beer posters from home! Phillips Brewery is my favourite, and we miss having good local beer! (There are a couple of micros here that we like, but they don't compare. We have this strange and fierce loyalty to these guys, as do many Victorians - Their blue buck consistently outsells big names like molson and bud 2:1 around town /endtangent)

Our wee kitchen. Fridge and stove against the wall where I'm standing to take the photo.

Didn't realize till just now that I forgot to close the cupboard doors... oops!

  3. Your house is too cute! The photo wall is amazing and so are your brewery posters. My boyfriend and I are super loyal to our hometown brewery too, so I can relate!
