Before I start this post, let me just say I am a die-hard interior decorator nut. One of the reasons I love moving is that I get to re-arrange, re-organize and re-decorate! I have many more thoughts about this topic which I'll save for another post, but for now let's take a look at our little apartment in it's before stage:
Here is the view from the entrance, looking into the living room and onto the verandah.

Here is the kitchen in all it's bare-ness. Once you enter, the kitchen is directly on the right.

And my beloved window between the kitchen and dining area. This is something I was really hoping for as I know it will make it a lot easier to look after the kids and helps to make the place seem a little bigger. The "open plan" concept is not really wide-spread here, in fact when you do find it, it's called an "American kitchen".

A different view of the "living room".

The kids/guest bathroom. We were very fortunate to find a place with the shower head and doors already installed, as well as having a small cabinet under the sink. These things are often left up to the renter to install.

Our tiny bedroom. We decided to move a queen size bed in, even though there won't be much space around it!

The kids room. Thank goodness they are in a crib and toddler bed, or the room would seem really small!

The office/study/storage/everything else room. I imagine this room will be very full! This room also has access to the balcony which is nice.

Here's the basic layout.

So there you have it, our tiny apartment. Come back for more updates and the after shots!
