The living room has marble fireplace #1
The bedroom has marble fireplace #2
The butlers pantry is going to be filled with books like a mini library
The dining room has marble fireplace #3. Since our table is small enough to fit in the kitchen, were going to use the dining room as an office/guest room.
I love this sunny kitchen! The tiny kitchen in my current place is hideous, all brown with no natural light. I wont mind doing dishes in this cheerful room, though.

After living in a slum for about 2 years, my fiance and I are extraordinarily lucky to move into this charming place. It is a portion of a Victorian mansion! The man who built it used his wife's money, and then embezzled $80,000 from the bank he worked at and kept adding to it. When his crime was discovered, he shot himself (but not in any of the rooms that make up our apartment).

We'll start moving stuff in next week! As two history geeks, we're so excited to live in a historic home. Plus, we are both excited to start decorating it. I plan to find the perfect way to display each and every Junkmarket project I've made.

My fiancee usually lets me do all the decorating, but this time he wants in.
