space trade





so, i am contemplating a big interior shift in the city apt. we currently live in a 900 square foot edwardian/victorian combo apartment in the mission district of sf. it is technically a one bedroom, but by sf standards it is considered a 2 bedroom as they call the front living room a bedroom. maybe because it has a non working fireplace and they can get a bit more money out of the space. (good thing our landlord was calling it a 1 bed in 2006 as we got in at the one bedroom going rate...which by any other standard could afford you and estate in sun valley, idaho).

anyway, i am thinking about turning our living room into a den/office. we would still keep a sofa in the room for those frequent guests, but would also trade out some of the current furniture for a big farm table that could be used as the desk/working space. god only knows i own my share of farm tables and could open a nice diner with enough seating for 40.

this would get all the computers out of the bedroom for good. i have a habit of lounging on the bed with my laptop rested right on my lap (bmo at my side) and we can literally sit for a few hours just browsing stuff. good once in a blue moon, but several times a week can create guilt.

i am one of those people who believes the bedroom is really a place of respite and discovery. all distractions out of sight and a place to lay my head down and day dream away...with no phone or computer in sight. BUT, i have lost my way and succumb to technology attack. ha, ha...

so, after finding these photo's i am officially considering the change.

what a fantstic idea for you and the way you live! That front room will be used more often and will fell like you have a bigger space. I have always loved the light from that room....
