I'm moving to a new tiny apartment in Hayes Valley, San Francisco, CA from a house I own in Buffalo, NY. This is a big deal because I'm used to having open space, a yard, a driveway, quiet and (relatively) dark nights.
Everything is about to change for me. Living in a fast paced city, in a small area, with lots going on at all times.
The amount of space I'm moving into is pretty small compared to what I'm used to. The full size is about 500 sq feet.
I'm bringing my two dogs (A big yellow lab and a medium size corgi) and need to make the space work for all of us. We're all going to lose a lot of weight because we don't have a yard to just hang in anymore... we are going to have multiple daily walks.
Plus, I want to start building a new modern aesthetic compared to my usual suburban-homebody lifestyle I've lived most of my adulthood. I am such a boring person when it comes to decorating..and I want to add flair to my life.
So, basically, I'm asking:
- any advice on how to adjust to my new city lifestyle from a slow suburban one?
- any tips on how where to get some cool furniture local in the city?
- think I should keep my car or sell it?
