Normally my fantasy living space would be something a little less staid and reasonable. But, for a variety of reasons, Brandon and I are having to look for new apartments, and there’s nothing like sudden nest-insecurity to make a nice, one bedroom unit of moderate size seem like the most appealing thing on earth.
So dear Vancouver, can we make this happen? Plus, I must say, I’ve never had hardwood floors before, and I think it’s time. The bathtub carved out of solid quartz crystal would be a nice touch, but I’m ready to discard that expectation if necessary. Brandon’s bathtub can be perfectly normal, even – he doesn’t care about these things.
Look, Vancouver, I’m the best tenant ever. I’m obsessively tidy, and I write rent cheques a year in advance, and I only practice my shrill wind instruments, like, once or twice a month. You want me! You want me to want you! Do we have an understanding? Two apartments, same building, nice location, decent rent, good flooring. GO.
Plus, dear mum and dad, I will trade you all the old art that you already have stored in your basement for that teak drawer unit. How can I afford to be so generous? Well, what can I say. I’m a giver.

I’d never imagined the possibility of a quartz bathtub before. I was surprised when I googled it and found out that two of those actually existed, carved from a single, immense block of the mineral:
Although at 530 thousand pounds (ouch!), they don’t seem to be a very economical choice.
I saw one going around on tumblr a while back, which is what made me want it.
They’ll be $40 at Home Depot any day now, I’m sure.
I just wanted to share this with you, since I find them pretty cool: http://cupcakesandcashmere.com/diy-geode-bottle-stoppers/
Also, that bathtub carved from quartz is a bit intimidating, but badass nontheless.
I hope you can find the best apartment in Vancouver soon!
Ahhh, shinies make everything better!
is optimistic for the optimistic shrubbery!
I hope your optimism powers photosynthesis, Kim! Also, I hope it waters my plants when I forget.
okay you are killing me with the quartz bathtub. thats sooo goooddddd. a separate corner shower tho is so necessary too…mostly, if it has these heat sensitive tiles: http://i.imgur.com/wRirD.jpg and a skylight. :D
