A tour of our apartment.

I've been wanting to show pictures of the apartment me and my boyfriend live in for quite some time, but not until recently have I felt that it's come together the way I've been wanting it to. Despite the fact that it doesn't have as many things as I'm used to having around me (and I doubt we'll get much more since we may only be living here for another year, or maybe two) I really like living here especially because it's spacious and the view is really pretty. Enough talking, come on in!


One enters through this door, and then one some of our shoes (mostly mine) and my coats, jackets and bags. To the right is the living room:

Most of the furniture is from IKEA, but that's okay since IKEA is great. Now some details:
Cherries and candles
Candles and a bowl with cherries on the table.

A shelf with a plant that looks like a tree, books, and my Lula magazines.

We have an inserted balcony, if you will. It's just the windows of the living room that can be opened all the way, but it feels almost like a real balcony and and having all the plants, flowers and herbs outside really add to that feeling.

I love the view.

To the left of the entrance is the kitchen....

...but if one continues straight ahead there is the eating area:

and further on, there is the bedroom:
Tassus has his own spot to sleep next to the bed!


The other side of the wall has a big wardrobe. Let's take a look inside some of it:

And the bathroom with all my skin products and make-up:

There is also a guest room/study which is right now occupied by my parents who are visiting me, so there will be pictures of that another time. The reason for my lack of blogging lately is because I've been too busy showing them around, and having fun with them. I am so glad they finally made it here!

Thank you for the visit :)

I love peeking into peoples homes, and yours is very inspiring Ariella. I am currently living with my boyfriend in his parents house and we are redecorating our bedroom and sitting room/office, the only bad thing is that we don't have an Ikea at Madeira :/

I love how the green rug in your living room, it's like grass! It's like your garden continues inside. :)

Å så bra du har lagt ut bilda av leiligheta! ser veldig fin ut. Koselig og kult. legg ut bilda fra besøket av mamma og pappa da!

Emily said...

Your new apartment looks so cozy, Ariella! I really like how you have your hats hanging by the front door. They looks so cute there waiting to go out to greet the day :)

Lovely view, too. Garden herbs are the best, aren't they? I can't wait to start using ours in summer cooking.

Thank you for the sweet tour! Your apartment is adorable. I especially love the Ikea furniture... there's a store near me, and I love to just pop in there and browse around. :) Your decorating scheme is so sweet and homey. It looks like you have a nice life for yourself there. Thanks for letting us in!
