Sneak Peek: Our new place

Sneak Peak
(via my flickr)

As you might have noticed, I’ve been a little absent from the blogging world, but I just assumed that from my previous posts, you knew what I was up to.

We moved a week and a half ago and we’re still pretty much living out of boxes.
Last week I had to completely clean out the old apartment, organize and run a workshop with my supervisor, including a field trip and two days of lectures at our office, and try to get settled and start unpacking in our new place. Needless to say, I was pretty much just home to eat and sleep last week.

But soon, very soon, this place will hopefully transform in our new home and it will be the beginning of yet another new chapter in our lives.

I am nowhere near a point where I could take pictures of our new apartment without completely feeling embarrassed about its current state of messiness, but I thought I would at least give you a little sneak peak as to why we fell in love with the apartment in the first place.

This picture was taken on the day of the walk-through when I was handed the keys, which made the apartment officially ours. Isn’t it pretty?
The sliding French doors, the built-in hutch… no more explanation needed, right?
Not to mention the original hardwood floors.

I am in love… and I see a lot of trips to IKEA and Target in the not too distant future.

  1. Love it! It seems so sunny, and I love the little bookshelves and the glass door. So much character! I’m excited to see more pictures :)

  3. Ooooh my goodness, this looks like something from a dream! Heh. :) I love the doors and the light and the floors! Wow, I cannot wait to see more and I hope you guys will find some time soon to really get settled in and start making it a home.
