Finally, finally, finally I can talk about this. It's been in the works forever, but now that I got my magazines in the mail, I can share it with you!
Me and my (well, our) apartment were featured in IKEA live magazine for Belgium! Wooh!
Now, you might not know this about me, but I am personally of the opinion that going to IKEA is pretty much the best way to spend a Friday evening (I'd choose IKEA bed-testing and ice cream cone eating over drinking beer in a pub any day), even if you don't buy anything (which never seems to happen, though. It's the darn bedding section, man. With the cute Scandinavian prints).
The actual published article is in Dutch, but we did the interview in English and apparently they do all the art directing and information gathering in London and then translate it all into the local language. The result is I have an English PDF to share with you but on paper I sound totally Flemish. Which is quite funny (not the Flemish itself, but the fact that the phrasing is very uncharacteristic for me).
So, enjoy getting a sneak peek into our home. Which, in the most part, looks so cool because our landlord is an interior designer and he fixed up the place so nice that even a Klippan couch (why, yes, it is indeed the cheapest couch they sell. But quite worth every penny, tvm) looks like designer furniture. But I didn't tell IKEA that. And don't you dare tell on me either, you bunch of snitches. It was all the cool prints that really convinced them of my awesome interior design abilities, anyways.
