Day 5:
Welcome to our new home! Here are a few quick shots of our new place. This is what you see when you first walk into our place. There's lots of good closet space to the right, and a big shoe closet on the left! In Korea, it is very disrespectful to walk past the front door with shoes on, you must take them off and put them away as soon as you enter someones home.

Here's our bathroom, more functional than glamorous, but it does the job. Nice big mirrors above the sink and toilet and there a decent sized cabinet for our toiletries. Moving on to our living space....
Here's a bird's eye view from our loft of our living room. The tall ceilings and big windows really open up the space and the whole room has a nice bright feel to it. We love the view of the garden terrace- which you cant see too well in this shot, but it is gorgeous!
Here's another angle of our living room, and the stairs that lead to our bedroom. Those posters were here when we arrived, and are all the decor we have at the moment. We have been told it is going to be hard to find posters for the wall as Koreans are very minimalistic- so we'll have to see what we can come up with. As for now, we have purchased some plants to add some life to the place.
Here's a view of our kitchen, its not very big but it's all we need. We are going to buy ourselves some bar stools for the counter top for eating breakfast and that red wooden block, is a fold out table for our living room. We keep it folded up to maximize the space we have.
And finally, here's our very romantic bedroom, lol. Obviously we need to spruce it up! The ceiling is very low, so caution is needed. Although a little awkward, it is pretty cozy once you get used to it. We plan on putting some photography behind the bed and some plants along the little counter area. So that's our place! We'll post updates on the place as we decorate.
We are heading into Seoul tomorrow (Sunday) for the first time with a co-worker of ours, so there will be many more photos to come. Check back soon!

With love from South Korea,
Shayna & Brandon xo
