On the inside.


Soooo, I’ve found this ridiculously spacious flat on the Upper East side in Antwerp. It was built in the thirties, has wooden floors, a walk in closet, and is on the 9th floor with a 270° view of the city. Needless to say that I am pretty damn pleased with this. Especially after paying almost double the rent for a flat of 27 square metres in London.

As the BF is an architect, he is even happier with this space. And the past months, in our spare time, we both went loco on the furniture hunt. We’ve managed to hunt down a chesterfield sofa, two cabinets, 5 lamps, 7 chairs, a painting and some kitchen utensils at thrift stores and flea markets. The only problem was moving everything inside the flat. One incredibly stressful day and a lot of helping hands later, we managed to get everything upstairs. Right now, everything is starting to come together and is looking quite nice, it just needs some finishing touches and a thorough cleaning. I’ve been working (and playing) so hard however, that I simply  haven’t had the time. Right now, I’m sitting in my sofa sweating out a summer flu, with the sunshine on my face. It’s almost nice because this means I finally have some time for myself. To look at some pictures, and dream about upcoming DIY-projects. Maybe next weekend?

I hope you enjoy the inspirational pictures I’ve gathered the past few weeks. I’ll show you some pics of my flat…soon-ish!

Morgen mijn badkamer een beetje verven en het perfecte muntgroen uitzoeken voor mijn tafel. Heb trouwens een schat gevonden op de zolder van mijn oma –> More to come!

  6. Prachtige foto’s! Ik kan ook echt uren kijken naar inspirerende interieurs! Liefst van al zou ik elk jaar verhuizen. Ik hou er ook van om kringloopwinkels ed af te schuimen om perfecte en toffe meubels te vinden.
