New Furniture!

Hi readers!

A week ago we finally installed our new sideboard. My boyfriend built it years ago for his final exam for carpentry and now it’s finally up! I’ll just let the photos do the talking 🙂

Ignore the cable sticking out, that shouldn’t be there!

Now we just need curtains, a carpet and a coffee table for our lounge! Although it is taking us ages to decorate our flat, it makes it more exciting every time something new comes 🙂 What do you think of it?

The Flat

Hello!

Here’s my first post about my home in Munich. Since July 2014 I live with my boyfriend and my two buns in a three room flat. I’ll be sharing my experiences on decorating, choosing furniture, tips on how to organise small spaces and other small DIY projects!

Interior design has always been a big fascination of mine. When I was little I remember sitting in the back of the car staring into windows of houses as we drove by, trying to catch a glimpse of what it looked like inside. Although I didn’t choose interior design as my career (I still ask myself why I didn’t think to study it at the time when I choosing what to do with my life!), I’m still so excited to have my own flat where I can play interior designer 🙂

The kitchen and lounge. In Germany if you rent you don’t get a kitchen with the flat – or if there is a kitchen you have to buy it off the person who bought it!

Here’s a photo of the lounge/kitchen last year when we first moved into our flat – we had no furniture as the boyf insisted he built all the furniture (he’s a carpenter) which saves a lot of money but means it takes longer as he builds everything from scratch.

We do have furniture and a kitchen now but we’re still missing a lot! Watch this space as I’ll be keeping you up to date with what’s happening to our little flat 🙂
