Getting Settled

We are almost completely settled in our new place. I knew when I saw our new kitchen that I wanted a pop of apple green. I'm loving this tea kettle. 

The biggest change (although, I don't think that is the right word) we made is our kitchen table. The white kitchen table we had in our red kitchen was our true taste when we lived in a high-rise in Bellevue. We had a tiny apartment with a "view" of the space needle from our kitchen window. The table was a perfect fit. 

We also bought a craft table with two book shelves. We used this as our kitchen island in the "Centerway" house. It was more streamlined than the island counter that was originally in the kitchen. It also complimented the kitchen table. 

Anyway, we let the buyers of Centerway keep the two kitchen tables. They were such a good fit there and we don't have room for both tables in our new place.

Table, Chairs
Credenza, Photo Display
After we got settled and got comfortable in our space we tried to decide what to do about an eating surface. Our first thought was to get bar stools. But here's the thing...the back of my legs begin to hurt when I'm in a bar stool. And I just really wanted to "sit" down for dinner.

We found these amazing chairs before we found the table. They have the mid -century modern look that I love and they have the great green (retro) color. They are surprisingly comfortable. 

Once we had the chairs the table was a pretty easy find. It's a nice addition to our small and cozy place. 

The credenza was in the office/loft in the Centerway house. I'm loving it here. We don't have a fireplace here so this credenza works nicely as a sort of mantle.

That's all my news for now. Have a great weekend!
