I'm Kerra Michele, and this is my dog, Lunchbox. Welcome to our blog! We generally write about easy tips to make a rental space feel more like home, but we also talk about our life and travels. I hope you like our stories and adventures!

The Scientist and I recently moved into a new apartment and boyohboy is it perdy!  Well, it *was* perdy, until we moved all our stuff in and made a big mess (more on the mess tomorrow).  But don't worry!  I took some photos while it was empty so you could get a good idea of the space.

As you can see, the kitchen and bathroom leave a lot to be desired.  I mean, honestly, high gloss white walls next to old white cabinets and even older almost-white counter tops?  Who does that?

Those rooms might be on the top of my Fix List, but did you see the closets in the bedroom?! There are five and a WALK-IN.  Lord, have mercy!  That was the biggest reason we chose this apartment.  We totally struck gold in the storage department.  Add that to the hardwoods, marble fireplace (which totally works), many windows and a skylight?  Divine.  We can definitely work with this.

I can't wait to share some inspirational images and ideas for the layout!  What would you do with this space?

Moving is messy.

This is the first day of the rest of my life.
