new home : blank canvas.

many of you darlings have asked to see our new place. here's some photos i took when we were moving in. 

it's a 3 bedroom 2 bath duplex (separated by our lovely neighbors who are also newlyweds! by our garage) on the west part of El Paso. we're kind of in love with it and i'm anxious to make it home. 

and if you're ever in El Paso, you are welcome at Casa di M!

 wrought iron gated pathway to our front door entry way
fireplace in the living room / sliding doors leading to backyard
 across from the sliding doors is a bar (with a sink!) and mirrored shelves
 our master bedroom ( i love the arched window )
 at the far end of master bedroom is our sink and to the left of the long mirror is my little walk in closet! i love it. across from that is the bathroom. i also love the little sky lights throughout the house, like the one above the mirror by the sink.
the master bedroom's tiled shower (big enough for two!) 
 the front door has an intercom system by the doorbell with one of the speakers in the master bedroom
 the two other rooms look like this, with windows and mirrored closet doors
 this is an ugly photo without the doors that are in place now but there's the pantry and where our washer/dryer goes. since it's a duplex, i love how there's so much storage space.


looking from our backyard. at night you can see all the city lights... magical! in the dining room (not pictured) there's a big bay window that you can slide the windows open -- the landlord intended that incase you have parties-- you can use the wide ledge by the window as a serving area.


we're 95 percent moved in --- still needing to hang up art and today we should FINALLY have a working stove/oven (so i can put your delicious recipes to use!) and new dishwasher--which is why there's no photos of our kitchen area.

thanks for "coming over!"

What a gorgeous view! I love high dessert areas like El Paso and north of Phoenix, AZ. So pretty.

Y'all have a lot of space for a duplex!

M - I lived in El Paso when I was a kid for three years. It's the place where I have my first memories. My family still jokes about my love for the "flat roof-ed houses!

Congrats on your new home! Can't wait to see it when you add your touch!

April said...

I love it so much! It's perfect for you guys, right?! It's a great space for you to make your own. I can't see what you do with it. Like I said on FB, you have to bring back cocktail hour. The house demands it.

so happy to have seen photos of your lovely new home miss m! literally in anticipation to see the photos of everything all decorated and colorful. the entrance to your house looks so whimsical and the view is so stunning! you'll have to try and get a good night shot off all the glimmering lights one day. :]

I must say your view from the backyard is breathtaking. It makes me just want to plop myself in a lounge chair and drink lemonade and take in the scenery and sunshine.

What a beautiful home you two have found!! Can't wait to see how you put your Micaela touch on it. I just know it will be equally cozy and chic!

Cole said...

Ooo that looks great! I can't wait to see what you do with it, but seriously, the wrought iron gate?
AH-MAZ-ING!

Cassie said...

Thank you for sharing with us and opening your doors. I often feel somewhere doesn't feel entirely home until you have hung art though so you will soon feel settled.
