I realized I haven't put up any pictures of our home since, well, we moved in about a year ago. Actually it's just unbelievable to me that it's been almost a year already, but we just got a notice that our rent is going up next month (by a whopping €16,-), so it must be true. Anyways, I decided to share some parts of our home with you the coming few weeks. This week: our living room.
Everything we do or change in this house usually turns out to be a long-term project (we both have full time jobs). Plus we're renting, so we often have to think creatively. We're not allowed to put holes in those pristine white walls (aren't they just begging for it, though?), so I reframed some smaller things to put on shelves etc. In this picture: a beautiful watercolor painting of Ash, our cat Meneertje and myself by the talented Jenny M., a print of a digital collage I made for Ash, and a lovely redecorated vintage teapot by awesome designer Nina In Vorm.
These pictures really make me laugh because I did not intentionally put Meneertje in there at all. He's just such a little attention-whore and and insisted on creeping into view right when I snapped pictures. I can almost see the little thought-balloons in these pictures. "Hi there! Hi again! Hellooo!" Oh, and, please do check out the two plants I've managed to keep alive for longer than two months. Woop woop! And no, they're not plastic (I have considered that option, though).
This is the view from the front of the room towards the back. And below is my little chestnut display and my vintage flowerpot, and oh! Hey! Look at that! Meneertje!
My tights are really that green. Yes, I wore them to work. I loved it. My colleague with whom I share an office went home early today. Something with her eyes and reflecting light... can't remember.
Well, that's all folks! Let me know what you think, and do post links to pics of your own home if you have them - I love seeing other people's houses!
