Fresh Whites

 

Hey lovelies,

I thought I’d share a few inspirational photos I found on Pinterest (here). I absolutely love relaxing in the evening and looking through inspo-photos – at basically everything from food, to design, fashion and interior. I love getting my inspirations from there – could I call myself a Pinterest junkie? Probably. I am also really into everything white, light grey, natural browns: basically, everything that makes the apartment look fresh (!) and C O Z Y. My apartment is (of course) far from looking like the inspo-pictures I keep on drewling about. Yet, I am always on the look at what the market has to offer and what apartments are free at the moment. Let me tell you – its a bitch trying to find an apartment that has a scandinavian flair – or really, any apartment that is affordable. I am not unhappy with my apartment – really – I’ve learnt to like it alot. There are certain things though, that I would immediately change. I hate not having an open kitchen. In general, kitchens cannot be big enough. And I would love myself a white or light grey floor. Is it just me or is that only existant in Scandinavian countries? If so, I might need to move at some point in my life.

So for all of you out there, specifially those in the Zurich area, please do write me if you know of any place that is available that has a rather old, inviting charme! In general though, I am always interested at looking at places – and styling them. I am in the midst of cleaning out my apartment. Step by step. And I might buy a new sofa soon, in white. What do you think? My ultimate dream would be to buy an old apartment or house and completely renovate it one day. Clearly a dream yet, but surely, one day, I’ll get there.

I’m totally in love with my new laptop case! I’ve been thinking about getting one for quite a while now, although I usually prefer my gadgets in its original form and look. So to speak – I always found it nicer without anything on. Now that I’ve been on planes more often in the past weeks and always took my laptop with me, I found it was the right time to protect it accordingly. I don’t think I could handle a scratch on it!

Now it’s time to work a little whilst sipping on my tea. Yup, tea – with it still being about 30°C outside. I’ve been hit by a slight cold yesterday, didn’t feel too well this morning and am praying that it won’t worsen over night again. Crossing fingers!

I hope you all a great start into the new week – there’s so much going on! Thursday I’ll be flying to Germany again for a fun festival in Kaarst (near Düsseldorf, a town where my family currently lives), which is called Kaarst Total. I’ll be working from home Friday and returning Monday evening. Until then I have a lot of stuff to do – which is why I should work on my agenda for the week now; and for the new month whilst I’m at it… (didn’t manage it yesterday).

Lots of love, xo

Simplistic Interior Inspiration

Happy Sunday! Can you believe the week is almost over, again? I’ll be picking up my parents from the airport today and this afternoon I’ll start driving down to Zurich again to make it in time before I start working at the office again on Monday. Oh, and then I’m off to Geneva on Tuesday – the week starts of busy!

I’m currently all over the web (yes, at 8am on a Sunday because I can’t sleep at the moment) searching for inspiration and the right items to re-furnish my office at home – the one I like to call my ‘creative space’. The room bores me when only looking at it; yes, it has everything I need, yet it is the least inspiring room in the whole apartment. That can’t be! So I’ve decided to start my own little mission and re-decorate, re-furnish and spice up that room just enough so that my inspiration can spark again without dragging along the empty walls.

I am looking to get a more Scandinavian touch into the whole room – with lot’s of whites, grey, a few blacks and a hint of color here and there (can’t be avoided with all those magazines stocking up).

Now I’ve already gotten one of these beautiful items (well at least extremely similar) – can you guess? It’s been ordered but sadly will take another 1-2 weeks to arrive, so I will have to practice my patience :-).. !

I should probably get dressed now and take out the dog before making my way to the airport later – it’s going to be long day with lot’s of hours in the car so I am really looking forward to getting some fresh air and a few steps in my schedule now. Wishing you all a great Sunday! xo

It’s the Final Countdown

Current mood: It’s the final countdown! After waking up this morning and realising it’s the last day of the year, this song popped up and keeps repeating itself in my head. I can’t believe the year is over already – again. Time flies, and it seems to fly faster than usual. What are your plans for tonight?  After a lot of deciding and choosing between different events, countries and parties, I chose to stay in Düsseldorf with the family. We will have a cozy nice dinner at home – enjoy some music and relax. Not the whole night, though! After dinner we will slowly head out to a party near our place – supposedly the whole town is going there haha. So I’m excited to see how that turns out. They have different themes regarding music, but I think we will be going to the 80’s and 90’s party – love the music from that time!
