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.
