Kyori's New Place

A lot has happened since we last saw Kyori back in February.  She and her boyfriend, Jay Chou, got engaged right after she returned from doing the mini television series.  They recently bought a posh condo downtown.  They just closed on the property a month ago, and they are still in the process of fixing it up.  Her sisters insisted on stopping by to see the place. Kyori is stressing because she wanted everything to be perfect and it's not, yet.  This post just shows the progress of their condo.  We will see the story with her sisters sometime next week.

This is the island I was originally making for Adele.  The color really didn't suit her.  She loves the warmer tones.  I will have to make her something else.  The wall shelf is a display shelf turned upside down and attached to the wall.  It's a great place for dishes and stemware.  She plans to add more artwork, replace those books with cookbooks, have some taller barstools made, and add a backsplash that coordinates with the marble countertop.  I made the marble top with a kit I bought over 10 years ago.  LOL.  Eventually I will use all the craft stuff I've purchased over the years.

There's her handsome fiancee, Jay Chou.  I had to laugh after I dressed him.  I didn't plan to have their outfits coordinating, it just happened.  If you noticed in the last camping story, the same thing happened with Antoinette and Tony.  That was totally unplanned, too.  It's bad when your doll couples start dressing alike without your knowledge.

This is an overall shot of the dining area and kitchen.  You have to imagine the imaginary wall behind the white console table.  She will more than likely set the table with placemats and dishes. 

She takes a moment to chill with Jay before her guests arrives.

They are so happy to be in their own place.  After spending so much time on the road with their careers, it's nice to finally set down some roots.

  2. Trendy, polished, and a great color scheme. Perfect for a young up and coming couple like them. I'm glad that they took a move forward in their relationship, and they do seem like there ready to settle down together and look torward the future.

    1. Grandmommy - That kitchen came exactly like you see it. I didn't make any alterations to it. There is one more piece that includes a dishwasher. I just didn't have room. I have painted a few things stainless in the past and I use a chrome spray paint that I bought from Hobby Lobby.

    1. Lisa - Thanks. Initially I couldn't figure out who should have this place. I was going to put a vote to the blogging community. Kyori wasn't even on the list, but as I was reaching for one of the other potential residents, her hand fell off, and I immediately thougth, this is perfect for her. It's almost as though she was trying to get my attention. It worked.

  12. The apartment really suits Kyori and Jay, it's so very stylish. Obviously they are a happy couple if they are dressing alike without you planning it.

    1. Carrickters - I had 3 other ladies in mind for the place and in one split second Kyori changed my mind. She and Jay are excited and a little nerbous about their future.

  13. Her home is gorgeous. I had a neighbor who's home as black and white and she loved splashes of color her and there. Her and Jay make a perfect couple.

    1. Brini - Thanks. The black and white fits this couple to a tee. I tried to pawn it off on Adele, but she reminded me she had a two year old and a white sofa was just not going to work.

  14. This is like swankiness supreme. I really like that tile in the kitchen. It's a nice scale for the space.

    1. Muff - Thanks. Now that's a new expression. The tile was the first thing I bought for the kitchen. Adele was giving me a black and white kitchen vibe. Then she wanted a larger kitchen space. I suggested opening it up to the rest of the house. I guess I got carried away. She came in, looked at it, sat on the couch, and then announced this just would never work for her family.

  15. Well dang! You've blown me away with this one. Kyori should stop stressing, STAT, this is an amzing house. More amazing than anything I could put together. Wooooow 0_0 I'm in love with her style!

    1. Heather - Kyori and I thank you. She's always trying to impress her family. I'm sure they will love what she's done so far.

  16. I'm usually more of an earth tones kind of person but I love her place. I wish there was somewhere I could do the checkered floor. Even though it's black & white, it wouldn't match a doggone thing.

    1. Kenya - I'm an earthtone person, too, but I love when my dolls have different taste than mine. It allows me to experiment. I've always loved the black and white checks,especially when it's diagonal.

  17. Nice. I love the black and white scheme.

    1. DBG - Adele is pretty upset with me. Not only did she NOT get her kitchen, but I took her entire living space and gave it to Kyori. I need to make Adele happy quick. I would hate to get on her bad side.

  18. Yes, I'd like to place a bid on this condo - and more in! Amazing - so stylish! Those zebra chairs!
