When Nathan and I first bought a property together, we ended up buying a brand new condo being built on the southwest side of Edmonton, and it was basically a beige box, waiting to be decorated.
We lived in it for 4 years, slowly creating a space full of personality and warmth that really reflected who we were as a young couple, and what home felt like to us. We constantly had friends over for dinner and drinks, and spent many an evening on the balcony enjoying warm summer nights and clear starry skies.
Ultimately, we outgrew the space and wanted a bit more room to stretch out. In 2013 we began the house hunting process, and we moved into a duplex in 2014! We’re going through the same slow re-decoration process all over again with our new duplex, and it’s fun to take a look back at the design decisions that we made in the condo and see how many of them are the same or different, in our new place!
