If you are following me on Instagram or Twitter, you might know that Amy and I have finally moved into our new home. We’ve moved into a flat that’s quite a bit smaller than our semi-detached back in the UK, but it’s big enough for the two of us and both Amy and I really like this place despite it needing a lot of work doing to it.
The previous tenants had left a brown kitchen wall with bright blue lizards on it and the hallway was covered in neon green footprint stencils while Amy’s bedroom had airplane paintings all over the walls, but when I first visited this flat, I saw it’s potential. It has wood flooring throughout, apart from the bathroom, has well-shaped rooms and is nice and bright. The only downside are the ugly storage heaters in every room, but I’m researching options to hide them while still letting them do their job. We basically had to paint every single room, sand and prep all the skirting boards and doors and give everything a deep clean before buying and building all the furniture – luckily, my parents were a huge help, otherwhise I’d probably be still standing in front of the paint charts in the DIY store trying to come up with a colour scheme that would work for us long-term.
Now that everything is ready though, I thought I’d do a little home tour to share our new home with you. First up, is our new living room, which I think has quite a timeless look. It’s mainly featuring the colours grey and white with some silver accents, but have a look for yourself. I hope you like it as much as we do:
I hope you like this little insight into our new home. It’s small, but we already feel at home here. When we sat on the sofa last night for a cuddle and a story, Amy looked at me with her big blue eyes and asked me “Will we stay here for a long time, mummy? I like it here” and I think we will, because I like it here too.
If you like this sort of post, please let me know in the comments below as I am happy to show you some more rooms of our flat, if you’re interested. I’m always terribly nosy and love home tours, but obviously, I don’t want to bore you, if this isn’t your thing. Take care and enjoy the sunshine!
