Helluuu all! I'm excited to announce that, if all goes well, I will be moving out of my parents' nest soon! Wednesday I'll be signing the contract and Friday I can get a hold of the keys! Woohoo!
April 1st I'll officially move in, but the place is filthy and needs some work done, also I have a hell of a lot of stuff to move so I can use the extra time! I really couldn't be more happy with the apartment, the living room has two floor-to-ceiling windows which has always been my DREAM and to top it off, there's a beautiful view over the river which I'm ecstatic about! The bedroom is tiny (read: I'm not sure if I'll be able to fit in an Ikea PAX wardrobe) but has a full window wall as well so really, I can't complain.
I got my first piece of furniture yesterday, a dark wooden side table from the thrift store for a mere €4,50! My friend dragged it all the way through Antwerp's China town (including the supermarket, aww he's such a sweetheart) to his place, where it is currently waiting for me and my car to come pick it up.
Have I mentioned I had my first solo drive the other day? I'm taking such big steps to adulthood lately, I'm loving it!
Anyway, to coincide with this big news, I made a moodboard on pinterest which I named 'organic': I had 3 styles in mind: A more shabby chic kind of approach, or a fun, bright and more graphic style (think Ikea, Urban Outfitters, chevron, polka dots...), or, and this is what I ultimately decided on: A stripped down, natural vibe with some vintage and bohemian touches, which I think would complement the features of the apartment best. I already found the shop of my dreams here in Antwerp (I'm pretty sure I'll blog about it in full once I get my shoppin' done) to which I'll take some big cash once I settle in. In the meantime, enjoy some outtakes from my board:
Keywords being wood, whites, leathers, trinkets from afar and lots of greens!
By the way: The living room faces North-West so that means I'll probably have some pretty awesome natural light, excellent for shooting pictures! I'm so excited about this new phase in life, and what having my own space will mean for taking this blog to the level I've always wanted it to be.
I have a hectic set of weeks waiting for me, so wish me luck peeps! n___n
