Apartment: Before

People who’ve requested pictures: this is not the post you’ve been waiting for. Well, probably not.

Since I was a wee 4th grader, I’ve had an obsession with interior design. I sketched (grossly out of scale) floor plans of my rooms and had annual “makeovers” to freshen up my personal space. Lately, I’ve been following the “Small Spaces” section of ApartmentTherapy.com for inspiration. Things are slowly shaping up, but I thought it’d be nice to show you the “before.” Before the mounting piles of cat hair and scratch marks cover our nice leather sofa; before the kitchen counters turn into a Tetris game; before my clothes find an actual home in a chest of drawers or wardrobe, rather than my gigantic purple suitcase. 

There may never be an after, but there will be slightly-more-exciting “during” photos, as I head out for additional furnishings this week. Go-to places are Argos.co.uk, Dailyinfo (like Craigslist, but just for Oxford), and charity shops.
