I thought you guys might like to see a few pics I found of my 'soft loft' in a high rise called the Metropolis, where I lived for my first 6 months in Atlanta (before I bought my house in the Virginia Highlands). This was 2005.
Can you tell I was going through my 'contemporary' phase? I hadn't quite figured out my true style at that point which would be more of a blend.
Funny sidenote on that bed: I sold it on craigslist to a set decorator for a movie called The Lottery Ticket that was filmed in Atlanta and it was supposedly in the movie. I never saw it, hmmm.....
That is an original Herman Miller Eames chair over there to the left and I have it for sale on craigslist if you know anyone who is interested. It is in fabulous condition.
I was on the 16th floor of the Metropolis. My view faced downtown Atlanta.
It was quite an experience living in a high rise, but one I would not like to re live. I'll never forget the first time I went to the grocery store, and then realized what a hassle it was going to be to get it all up to my apartment. The parking garage was separate and 6 levels or so, then you had to take the elevator to get to the grocery cart, then back up to your car, load it, and then up to your apartment. Oh, and then return the grocery cart. I'll take a house and a garage any day of the week. An especially poor choice on my part were the cases of bottled water (I just left it in the car, I clearly overbought, lol). I ordered out a lot after that experience. I know, I know, I'm a wimp. But....it was Atlanta, not NYC, so I had options.
2005 was my first year as a sales rep for St. Jude Medical and this is a pic of me that year. Oh, to be 30 again. Time sure flies.
