In our last Rock Your Rental post, we met Mr. & Mrs. B, or rather, we met Mr. & Mrs. B’s sad sack of a bedroom.*
*I’ve been granted permission to use this particular expression since their own description of the space was a little more, um, colourful.
If you’re new here, I created the Rock Your Rental contest for my fellow renters who are currently living in a state of aesthetic purgatory. I’m showing one lucky winner how to transform their space without a) blowing the budget and b) making the landlord hyperventilate. Join us for the ride!
As a side note, I took a sabbatical this winter. Behind the scenes, the Rock Your Rental project has been underway and client projects have been in full swing. A few knock-your-socks-off projects will be comin’ your way soon. In the meantime, let’s get our feet wet again by circling back for a bit, hmm? It’ll be full steam ahead from here on out.
In my last post, I showed you Mr. & Mrs. B’s
sad sack of a bedroom personal living space. And by that I mean, their whole life is crammed into their bedroom new space is rather, er, cozy.
So let’s meet Mr. & Mrs. B, shall we?
To say they’re in a period of transition would be putting it mildly. He’s penned a novel and burned the midnight oil as an investment banker. She’s been a successful real estate broker for nearly three decades. And while each of them have found satisfaction and success in their respective careers, both have decided to give it all up in pursuit of a deeper entrepreneurial dream.
As part of that, and in order to give themselves greater financial flexibility, both sold their homes (a condo and townhouse, respectively) and moved into an apartment over-looking the rolling hills north of a major metropolitan city. I’ll be able to share their venture with you at some point, but for now, I can share that Mr. & Mrs. B are hiding out while the develop their business plans. And by hiding out, I mean, hiding out.
As in, renting a small bachelor apartment.
Now I have your attention.
Let’s revisit the photos, shall we?
A little fuzzy, but totally clear, if you get what I’m saying.
So, next up, we’ll learn about Mr. & Mrs. B’s particular challenges and their musical preferences.
Yep. This is where things get interesting.
