This is where we live now. I have always wanted a yellow room and I tell you, now I have really got one. Its sometimes like waking up in a field of marigolds and other times its feels like we live on the face of the sun. Our (blood) red bathroom, or as I like to call it the 'redrum room', is just as bold. No subtle earth tones here. Ditto the kitchen, which actually has a shower in it placed right across from the oven. But don't worry, the shower is semi lacquered with a bright red cello paper (for privacy, obviously), otherwise that could be an uncomfortable cup of tea while your roommate has his morning shower.

So yes, it is quirky. Yes the redrum room locks from the outside in, and yes our floorboards creak when the neighbors walk inside their apartment. But I really love this place. Our balcony overlooks the Methodist church's courtyard where they keep rabbits, and we also have a view like none other (see this post). The elder home next door means things are always nice and quite. And since we don't have any roommates, bring on the kitchen showers!

Okay, that's all for now:)

Kimberlee, your photos get more and more amazing: I hope you will put out a book someday so I can buy it! The new digs and neighbourhood sound wonderful, quirks included. If you can catch a church bunny please pat it for me xo
