New Apartment!



I just moved into my very first APARTMENT!!

Hiya everyone, I’m super happy to be finally be writing this post because it’s been such a long process trying to find a place of my own to live – but I’ve finally done it 🙂

I thought I’d show you some of the photos I took the first few days when most of the furniture was finally in. There’s still some stuff the needs to arrive/needs to be ordered to make it more ‘homely’ but here’s what we are working with so far…

Cushions are from Dunelm and the sofa from IKEA

Coffee table is from H&M home and the rug and pouffe are from Dunelm

The first thing to come together was the living room. The living room is actually a lot bigger than I realised and I can easily fit in my sofa, full sized piano and desk with room for more if I wanted. This was super important as I work from home 80% of the time! I’m still waiting on the TV cabinet but that will be here soon.

Lamp shade is from Dunelm and I have matching ones throughout the apartment

The theme I really wanted throughout the whole apartment was Contemporary/Scandinavian, and I do think I somewhat achieved this. To achieve the theme I chose lots of neutral whites and creams accented with wood and the odd bit of black furniture to break up the cream. The TV cabinet is wooden rattan so will fit in really well with the theme when it arrives I’m sure.

One thing you will notice is that I still need to buy curtains! Still trying to decide on the colour…

This desk I’ve actually had for a couple of years now and it was from IKEA. It actually goes really well with the theme which was lucky! That Portofino poster is actually now hanging on the wall by the window and I’ve ordered another one to match it because the room really needs some colour.

I will make another post when everything is finally together.

I’m also a little obsessed with the kitchen in this apartment! Everything in the apartment has recently been refurbished by the landlord so the kitchen (oven, floor, cupboards), carpets, bathroom and doors are all brand new! I’m the first one to ever use it which is so nice 😊. It’s also just all been painted!

The kitchen is currently very organised and I really hope it says that way! I find it really calming to have everything in it’s place looking nice. Most of the kitchen ware here is from IKEA apart from the kettle and storage containers.

And here I am being super excited about my new home :). And naturally, there is a green tea in hand ~

I haven’t showed the bedroom yet but it’s nearly done. I just need a few more bits like a lamp/bedside table etc. but I will show you in a future post x

All the best,
