A Tour of My Bachelorette Pad

Since I wrote that article last week on bachelorette pads, I was thinking that I'd show you what I have.  It's a 1960's MCM apartment.  Unfortunately, I'm still working with it and there's some terrible clutter spots.  This is a photo-centric post.

Bathroom
I have a pink, white, and gold bathroom.  Pink fixtures, white and gold walls, and white and pink counter.  It's pretty cool.


Bedroom
The bedroom is fairly big.  I didn't clean up everything, so....sorry.  On the plus side, it's a big bedroom and the closet is pretty decent.



Hallway
My hallway and closet of clutter.

Living Room
That red table leg sticking out is where I'm currently typing from.  That's my big computer desk.  As you can see, I tend to fill up shelving space.  *eye roll* It's soooo in need of organizing.  My living room and kitchen are tied together, so for this, I will stay on the living room side of the counter.  My black chairs, they've been here since the building was built, often hold current sewing projects - like the blue flamingo dress you can see.


Above, I like masks.  I painted the Day of the Dead masks.  My Japanese friend brought back the "Mask of Evil" (the devilish mask) from Japan.  She was adamant that it wasn't the devil, but simply a mask of evil.  That's pretty cool, huh?

I'd show you some other stuff close up, but it's a little scary on the other side of that couch.  I have art stuff everywhere.  My tv is sitting on a 1940s radio and record player cabinet (RCA Victorola).  I'm trying to get it fixed.


Kitchen
I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It helps that it is open to the living and I can watch tv or listen to music in both areas.  My kitchen has a tropical tiki theme to it.  I'll show you all of my tiki and tropical stuff.

 Over the sink, see below.


 By the kitchen window, see below.

Well that's my place.  I sure hope you didn't think it was too messy.  I would like to make it a little more...minimalist.  I just have to continue going through some boxes.  If I had my way, I'd get rid of the popcorn ceiling stuff and the bland carpet. 

Show me your bachelorette pads!  Send me some pictures and include the city where you live.  I'll post it up.
