Yesterday a group of new teachers headed out to the Thai Army Nursery about 5 minutes away from Nichada. They had a huge selection of beautiful plants and, of course, they deliver right to your living room. After about an hour of perusing the wide variety of plants, we had picked out quite a nice selection for ourselves. A few hours later, they were delivered and in place in our house. Now the house finally looks nice enough to share some pictures (full set here)!
Here is our living room:

steps up to entry door, and down to the bedrooms (our first apartment with stairs!):

When we finally receive our shipment in September it will start looking a little more like home. Right now all we have are our suitcases and the small welcome kit that we were given upon arrival. In the meantime, we’re planning a weekend trip up to Chang Mai for some furniture shopping and I’ve scheduled an appointment to view a handmade teak futon for our second bedroom in early September. Slowly, but surely, our new condo will look better and better!
Anyone have any design or decorating ideas?
