>looking for an apartment since october
>all i want is my own place to furnish and design
does anyone have a small apartment to rent in hamburg, germany?
Does anyone know where to get a bench with a rolled back like in this pic?
Ever since she left me the nights have been so cold
Wish more places is the US had wood floors like this. Seem pretty commonplace in London and Europe though.
absolutely beautiful. like I wanna be here. With a brunette. and no time to stay, in one of those I'm gonna lay here for a bit moods but knowing that you have shit to do later in the day and you're gonna have to get ready in like, an hour
Honestly, your main concern would be humidity!
That amount of plant life (assuming it's real, which is a big if) would require a balls amount of water to keep them alive, and quite a bit of light as well.
Also, note the massive fucking aquarium- that is quite the feat of engineering to support that desk. I'd hate to be the poor sap who has to do maintenance on that thing.
I feel you, man.
The only girl I ever loved was here on an internship from Germany. she rented a room way out in Brooklyn.
She had a guy back home and I had a girl here. But there was something between us that seemed more important than all that.
I would go out to her place, surrounded by all the prewar walkups, make love to her, and just watch the snow.
It was the best time of my life. But she went back, contact between us got sparse, I went back to thing and she went back to hers. I feel like I lost something great, but at least I had those quiet mornings in bed with her, the radiator clunking softly, and the quiet snow.
What the fuck are you going on about.
I completely understand the feeling, and completely understand how the picture might evoke said feeling.
However, take a closer look to the picture. The window would make a fuckton of noise and take a fuckton of effort to open, the whole place will smell of old and smog from all the cars downstairs. The floor creaks with every step you take, and the bed is uncomfortable as fuck. The fan doesn't even turn on, and the last time it was turned on it severed a cat's tail. The toilet is cold and the water comes out brown and you're forced to wash with cold water because the insulation in the piping is so shit that by the time the water reaches the showerhead it's pretty much lost all of the heat. The neighbor on the left side is an old chinese lady who cooks dog on the regular, and the screams of the poor soul, as well as the subsequent smell of cooking meat are a common occurrence. On the right hand live a bunch of chicanos who party all day and you'll regularly open your app door to find passed out mexicans on the doorway and on the corridor. Landowner is a greedy short obese man who refuses to fix all of the problems saying they're not nearly as bad as they seem and he raises the rent every six months or so.
Oh, and the brunette is a bitch.
guys look at this nice ass loft i found in my city.
tons of exposed brick, industrial look, concrete counter tops.
rent is kinda steep though they want 1,250 a month can't even get a roommate causes theres 0 bedrooms :((( how sad.
i make on average only like 900 to 1k every 2 weeks :/
How do you keep your place looking hetero when you live with the opposite sex?
>inb4 "ITT: virgins"
that sounds ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. i can have all the coked fueled after parties i want, rent would be low, me and the chinese lady could discuss our disgust for dogs and share happy evening dinners.. hell, the mexicanos could join in to and we could do some epic hybrid mexicano chinese dog stew DAMN. the window creaking is alright, i could just oil it up and fans are ugly i would remove it.i live in sweden so i can always drink my water.. does the water being brown mean i have to boil it or what? ill just come up with a solution to that. i would slap that brunette bitch into obediance.
perfect. absolutely perfect.
i would post more but this damn timer is too long, i've got stuff to do
chill out racismo, im creamy swede white and i don't really hate dogs at all. being disgusted at people for eating dogs when you yourself eat other meat is hipocritical at best, and if you ask me, stupid.
theres a slight difference where some have been bred for livestock and others have been bred for companionship over thousands of years.
and you definitely wouldnt eat even a stray dog unless you were starving you poser fuck
Literally or figuratively?
My girl and I don't tend to have issues on decorating and furniture, but she likes more masculine colours and we generally agree on furniture. She can't clean up to save her life though. Whenever she uses the dining room as a work area, it looks like a bomb went off.
It's worthy of posting here because you did a great job. It isn't 100% my style, but you really nailed what you were going for.
That's far too much of your salary going into your rent. Don't do it. Especially considering heating is gonna be insanely expensive and you're in damn Albany.
You could do much better, dude, that's pretty college-y.
Yet another "no-one has sex here" bed. Shit looks painful.
Every girl I've lived with was fucking awful at stuff like that, so who knows.
Hey, I remember you. You continue to do awesome stuff with limited space/constraints, which is impressive.
>You continue to do awesome stuff with limited space/constraints, which is impressive.
Thanks m8, glad you like it (fourth one isn't me though)
I moved a lot as a kid/teenager, so I've had a lot of practice setting up my room from scratch. I'm also a huge fan of cozy spaces, so it just works out that way.
stop it ! i came here to escape reality !
I don't know about him, but I occasionally use my old parent's typewriter because I'm pretty shit at being focused on one thing. It wouldn't be a problem if I had a decent work ethic, but I find that just having a tool for writing without potential distraction from the internet really helps me get shit done.
Not to mention, you don't have to deal with printers, and that's always a good thing.
Also, maybe he doesn't have a use for it and it's just decorative because typewriters are nice, neat objects. Plus, it's always fun to show it off if you're having people over, everyone can type their silly shit while they're drunk and have a laugh about it later when you show them the paper. It's like instant cameras, there's just something cool and convenient about having what you do physically be there right away.
what faggot would do that ?
the moment a girl enters and asks you to play something and you can't your virginity achieves permanent status.
Also your friends laughing behind your back.
>>"no-one has sex here" bed
>I don't get it
Beds like that make lots of positions inordinately difficult. The low position makes bending the girl over the bed difficult. The exaggerated wooden border makes rolling around and/or moving on the bed a bit difficult, as you have to be somewhat aware of not slamming into solid wood. Even missionary where you stand is pretty much out of the question. Like getting into/out of a Japanese futon, it's also slightly uncomfortable to flop into/out of beds like that.
In other words, they look great but don't make a lot of pragmatic sense.
Thanks m8, I lived in Garmisch-Partenkirchen for 2 years and so I actually rode that train a bunch, just going skiing with my friends a lot. My parents had tons of posters and when were were unpacking our new house I just kind of nicked one.
And here's the other side of my current room.
So, my flat is kind of shitty. I mean, I tried, but I'm not very good at it at all. Any suggestions? Changing most of the furniture isn't an option, as I rent it along with the flat.
So far, this thread is making me realize I place my (ugly) framed pictures kinda randomly, and it'd probably look better with some organization/patterns in it. Also, should I get more red shit in it? I got that little red furniture thing recently, and I'm realizing I really like how it looks with all the yellow in my room (though it's kind of a shitty yellow).
i would definitely. i see no other "value" to life than the attachment to the material world. i base my "attachment to the material world" loosely on the premise of intelligence, in which i don't value dogs that highly. i would eat a cat, a dog, a cow, a frog, a monkey, anything. because why not? im not an american
I just have a black and white striped room. W2C to get it a bit more comfy? I have literally nothing in it except a double bed
Would a barcelona chair look good in a small living room? Wooden floor and the only other furniture are same colour carpet, coffee table and small couch?
Also, is $200 too expensive for a brand new one, or is it an alright price?
If it's genuine leather and it looks and feels good in person, I say go for it. There's absolutely no reason to throw down cash for a real Barcelona chair unless that amount of money to you is inconsequential, and there's nothing wrong with replicas if you like the style and if their build quality is good.
Keep in mind that many solid leather chairs retail for $500+, easily.
How do you add any personality to a room when you don't really like posters and can't change anything permanent
change curtains. put up shelves to stock with effay objects like vases and bongs and shit
plants are a good choice. framed abstract paintings (you can use stick on pegs to the walls so you dont have to put nails up)
get a bookcase and stock with books you like.
Even dropping ceramic on tempered glass is sketchy, still cool though. I'd love to have fish swimming around there.
You don't want to live in a warehouse, my brother owns a restaurant supply company that stores appliances in places like this downtown, its cold, dark,filthy, has rats running along the barren pipes and constant struggle against having kids coming in and tagging the exposed brick
no way.. ill constantly feel like there are milllions of spiders just inches behind me and there probably are
i love bauhaus architecture. Clean, open, minimal, yet every element that makes it is high end. I live with so much clutter and cheap stuff that its refreshing to see it.
while its a dream library to most people i actually dont like book collections. Think about it: even to an avid reader, there are probably thousands of books there.. not even .01% will be read this year, or in the next 10 years. They are literally decor collecting dust and wasting space. Heavy, costly, time consuming, and cumbersome to move, and that should be a factor since most of them wont be used between moving residences. Most will never be read again desu.
>laptop on the bed
>suffocating its fan vent
>displaying everything as if it was so cool to look at
>black garments that would show all the dust from not being in a closed space
>guitar resting on the hard edges of bricks
fuck thats gorgeous
i got that same lamp in the back. 7$, walmart. Everyone has one at some point.
feel like that sheet in the back is covering up an open closet thats very messy
low-end dreadnought acoustic
mirror isnt even hung
Not my thing.
there are variants of them that dont seem whitetrash but actually high end and charming.
those arent that kind tho.. just regular supermarket xmas lights.
lotion+tp+magic the gathering out in the open
Framed paper poster not even hung
paper poster in the middle of nothing
2 hung framed pics just killing space..
Basically my floor is lifted from the floor by about 1 foot, only my door entrance and wardrobe is normal height, so i try to keep it as clean as possible. Near the entrance below the floor have some room built for storage. Im not at home right now cant post pictures
when I get rent together i'm basically gonna make my bedroom look like the one in permanent vacation
Le wrong generation meme. people have been unfaithful in relationships throughout history. There's no excuse for cheating. Even if a relationship is "meaningless", decieving another person into thinking you will be faithful- causing them to avoid sex and potentially romantic emotional attachments with other people- and then sleeping with another person is an extremely shitty, self centered thing to do. It's like if you went to buy a car and you gave the dealer an $1,800 down payment, and then never got a car. Would that be okay on any level?
>but money is just a social construct
I'm actually studying architecture in a 5 year program in nyc right now. I'm about to enter my 4th year and one of my major all time focuses is that I hope I can design spaces exactly like this in mountainous/deciduous regions
For some reason that has absolutely never appealed to me. I don't think I would feel very safe in a house like that, with the idea that anyone outside could see me. Sure, it's the middle of nowhere, but I don't know. I'm just not a big fan of the idea that you could pretty much tear down a wall from my house with a simple stone.
It does look good on photographs, however.
the glass isn't like your window or car, it's more durable, strong. they make them strong enough to resist the elements fully exposed.
my uncle down in florida has a house with an entire side facing the ocean and it's survived more than one hurricane.
>they make them strong enough to resist the elements fully exposed
Well, I guessed as much, I was more explaining the sort of paranoia that living in such a house would cause me to have, I suppose.
I don't know, it just has a very cold look overall. I like the older-fashioned cozyness of a typical house with some windows here and there. That being said, I never lived in one of those - maybe it's the comfiest thing in the world, dunno.
McCollum is the most effay of the apartment-style dorms, I think. Reagans just looks like any 4-man apartment, but McCollum has an outside balcony, and two floors which kind of economize space and make the living areas easier to light.
Already posted a few threads ago, it's gone through some small imrpovements. Thoughts ?
I'm looking forward the plant to grow larger, it looks ridiculously small right now.
It's lovely, I really like it. It seems comfortable, lot of things about it seem old fashioned - mostly the wallpaper, furniture, lightning and Christian items - but it's not overly "retro". Really nice.
I don't really have much to suggest. The box on which the plant is, for now, seems a bit silly, just being in the middle of the room without anything else, maybe move it somewhere else while the plant is growing. Maybe add another plant somewhere?
Actually, I know: try and get a real bookshelf. All those books on the ground, that's just not very classy. Plus, bookshelves just look nice anyway - I just love big fucking bookshelves with the occasional decorative object/framed picture/plant here and there rather than 100% books
Yeah, i considered putting an other plant. On the desk maybe ?
Also, my books are normally stored in a wardrobe i converted into a bookcase (not visible, it is between the chest of drawers and the folding screen, in the left corner of the picture), but i'm too lazy to put them back so i often end up with piles of books on the floor.
Thinking of replacing my wardrobe with a clothes rail with shelves underneath for shoes since I don't have as many clothes anymore. Thoughts?
Either a standing one like one of these or a rail fixed to the wall since it's in a recessed space.
This is my dream, but with pic related in the corner
I'm going to get one as well in my new place, definitely can be a good piece in a room. Just worried about getting a shite cheap one. Not really sure what a fair price would be?
If you're worried about overpaying just make one.
A piece of wood, four wheels (or just feet) and 3 bits of pipe with a handful of screws. Maybe some paint and varnish. You could make one for pennies
If it's in a recessed space, just cut your own shelves and throw up some pipes. But unless you can find a pipe that's exactly the size across you need, buy a couple angled fittings and a slightly shorter pipe. Hell, depending on how much room you have, you may be able to fit in two, staggered in depth.
If he's just spouting off words he's heard to describe an instrument without knowing what they mean, I wouldn't worry about his ability to detect quality. Though now I'm curious, who makes it. That pickguard is really narrow.
Stunned, anon. As soon as I opened the pic I spent like 2 minutes staring at it.
>tfw your apartment will never be like that
Fuck, man. At least it's motivation to succeed in my career.
Did that now I regret it
clothes get pretty dusty
Be post-ironic and cover it with a wooden carpet
Wow, someone saved my ammo-box-sox picture?Nice
Would always change some things here and there but in general I really fucking like those rooms. Damn.
actual art, photography, festival promo stuff, some band prints, tasteful movie posters, vintage maps or signage. even random found shit can sometimes work. generally speaking, frame everything. just use some common sense.
there are so many ways you can do it. keep lurking and go on other sites to see examples of shit and decide what you like.
just trying to show some different examples. i like the idea in how they placed the artwork, but not so much the artwork itself.
It's messy. I like it best when its crispy and sparse.
I just meant aesthetically, like, balancing masculine and feminine elements
I guess you just gotta find a middle ground or something, idk
i like your sheets mane
So many of these wall decorations are so SoDoSopa.
I'm gonna be a dick and say if you want art on your walls beyond a world map (which is fine), then check stuff out. Not the obligatory picture of the new york skyline and don't get cheesy posters where it says "Georgia O'Keefe" underneath a Georgia O'Keefe print, so you don't have to remember the name when people ask "so who's this?".
Treat it like checking out music and having a record collection you really like.
Oh, and don't frame LP covers.
And put up a family photo or som'n.
Heh, kinda looks like this guy would live there.
I like it, though.
>tfw it's a pleasantly rainy day
student apartment rented furniture is so cheap looking.
Bitch please thats a Bang&Olufsen tv literally the most based crt out there
