Apartment Inspiration

After weeks and weeks of waking up early on Saturday mornings, dashing from inspection to inspection in the rain, filling in countless application forms and running ourselves ragged, my friend and I finally found our dream apartment. And our application was accepted Monday.

I can’t tell you how excited and relieved we were. Shrieking was involved. The apartment is beautiful – it has polished beechwood floors, THREE balconies, we each get our own bathroom, it has all the mod cons such as a dishwasher and air conditioning, it’s centrally located and even has a gym!

After getting the deposit, bond, moving arrangements and paperwork out of the way, my mind turned to decorating. I finally caved and got a Pinterest account and I am ADDICTED. Follow me on Pinterest here. I am currently suffering from inspiration overload!

♥ I want mismatched frames decorating my walls filled with art and photos


♥ Light filled rooms, piles of books and lots of WHITE


♥ I want to create unique storage solutions for my home office


♥ I want the world’s prettiest and most organised kitchen


♥ And a thriving herb garden on my balcony


For more apartment inspiration check out my pinboard - I’ve only just started it but will be adding a lot more in coming days!


  • I love it! Love your designs and inspiration. I look forward to seeing your finished product.


    • Yay! Will definitely photograph and document the process and end result of the apartment :) Can’t wait

  • so these are photos of some random apartment or yours??

    • A variety of random apartments! Our apartment is currently empty :)

  • I totally want to live in this imaginary apartment!

    • Me too Sophie, me too! Heaven :)

  • Cant wait to see the updates on the finished product- if its anything like the photos you have posted oh-la-la.
    Does your flat mate have the same taste?

    • If my new apartment looks even a tenth as good as these apartments I will be very happy! And my flatmate is happy with me to do pretty much whatever.. this could be dangerous :)

  • Congratulations to you, sounds luxurious, do let us know how you’re getting on with the decorating process!
