Where In The World Is The Design Apprentice?

To say I have been a bit MIA would be a touch of an understatement. You see I've moved into a gorgeous condo and it includes internet, I didn't realize this meant I still needed a wireless router. Without this important little gadget I have been left to my own devices which means lots of twitter and very little blogging, sads.

The new place is both amazing and a beautiful work in progress. When I moved in the couch didn't fit, it simply wouldn't go through the door way. This meant sending into the le trash and many nights camped on pillows on my area rug. Finally on Memorial Day I headed to IKEA in hopes of finding my dream couch.

This was the couch I had my eyes on and Handsome suggested a little looksy in their "As Is" section. I'd never had much luck there but thought, "Hey, why not?" Well, the charming EKTORP Love Seat with Chaise was sitting there and was well below market price. I'd already said announced it was mine when a sales person came up and told me there was an additional 20% off the market price because of the holiday. Well, I can't turn that down.


So I've been living on this bad boy and loving views of Lake Michigan from my living room. Tonight Mama Design Apprentice is coming down for a girls night and she has picked me up a wireless router. We're going to try the famous Italian Tapas Restaurant, Quartino's

I will be up and posting the new place like crazy before you know it. In the mean time, if you see any incredible kitchenette sets, book shelves, or stools; Let me know!

  1. Don't you just love Ikea? That's so lucky that you were able to find a couch in their As-Is section - it was clearly meant to be.

    I'm curious to hear what you thought of Quartino's - it's one of my favorite spots in the entire city.

    Are we still on for a drink after work on Thursday? Let me know - or we'll chat on twitter too. xo
