BEB, I have an irrational dislike of swag lights. The photo I attached before is almost a year old - I have since furnished the room. Here's a more recent photo - the weird marks on the wall are shadows from the ceiling light.

Looks great Lilybell! And I hear you about the swag. I love the projected texture on the wall. Agree you can't see the curve.

Phew. Been a busy last few days! That curved wall is perfect for a round table. The seating would probably have to be custom, though :-\

And Lilybell already pointed out that while there are other combo units, we're in the only 4-bedroom. There MIGHT be another one in the future. But I don't know. I know the sponsor has her eye on combining two apartments in Building B. Sixth floor I believe. But not sure if she's started on that yet.

Although we have years of fine-tuning ahead of us, we're just about finished with rounding out our furniture. Would folks be interested in having a little gathering at our place sometime?

Hey Mr P! 

One of the apartments used to make your 4-bedroom is the same floorplan as mine - I guess the curved wall disappeared during the renovation/apartment combining.

I think a get-together sounds like fun. I'm embarrassed to admit I'm still in the process of buying furniture even though I've been in the apartment for a year now. I had to return all of the custom furniture I bought (which was 4 months late!) and start over (shoddy sewing on the cushions). I still need to paint a few rooms but I want to wait until I have all of my furniture so I pick the right colors. And then I can finally hang up my artwork.  I get paralyzed by indecision (especially when choosing paint colors). But I'm going credenza shopping after work today and just bought a chair from Room and Board so I'm slowly getting there!

I'm not sure if you've seen this - it was posted really early in the life of this thread. It's floorplans for the complex from way before the renovations. I love staring at the layouts of all of the apartments!
