Finishing off my new apartment

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone! It’s been a while and my days have been filled with travelling, busy work days, spending some quality time with loved ones, enjoying nature with Zaphira and – trying to finish the new apartment!

I am proud to say that it is almost done. Well, it’s been “almost done” for about 3 weeks now. I managed to more or less unpack everything within a weekend – finished a few last boxes the weekend after and now only have one room semi-undone left: my home office. Although more or less everything is already at its place, it still feels a little cold and not as inviting as it should. My biggest issue: I cannot work in a place I don’t feel 100% comfortable in.

This week, however – if I am lucky – my two carpets should arrive that I ordered. One for the living room, and one for my office room. I’ll then need to add a few last details, put up some pictures (some walls got repainted so I had to wait) and hopefully I am rather done then. Of course, my apartment is ALWAYS a work in progress and I love switching things up from time to time. Yet, the basis should be done in the next few weeks. At least that is my plan before I leave for my next trip!

Home Inspo

I’ve been off guard for a while now and I guess I should apologise. It probably also doesn’t help to complain or list the things that are going on right now that are keeping me busy. Yet, I have not forgotten about my readers, nor do I have the intention of stopping any updates anytime soon. Do forgive me though, please, if my updates are not as regular at the moment. Once I have finished my larger projects, and most importantly, finished my masters in a couple of months, I am hoping to dedicate much more of my free time here again.

On another note – I was skimming over Pinterest the other day and fell in love with some of the interior inspired pictures I found. I thought I’d share a few of those with you today to show a sign of life. A combination of these and my own little touch to everything – that would be my dream apartment/home one day. I love pairing the old with the new, having an apartment with that “old” vibe (“Altbauwohnung”), adding new pieces into it, and having a hint of that Scandinavian and Soho Design Interior flowing into the whole thing.

I just absolutely love looking at lifestyle photos and especially at interior stuff. I am even thinking of making my little hobby more realistic and looking into learning more about design on a professional level for the future. Not to stop what I am doing right now; instead – to potentially being able to use my hobby and love for interior (and food – oh jee, now I am starting to get indecisive again) more frequently in the future! What do you think of the inspo photos from Pinterest, any favorites? xo

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.
