Our Apt

Last time I showed our apt it was shortly after we moved in and I wanted to show you what we've done so far with what we have.  It's not much, but it's perfect for now.

I did the painting one dreary, grey afternoon that you see above the antique settee that we found for 60 Euros at a flea market here.  I've always loved our tall windows.   You can see we redid our herringbone lighter colored wood floors one weekend with longer planked darker ones.

We had to throw in some Euro-mod with the Panton chairs.  The desk is where I do my blogging and graphic designing.  The pillows on the floor are you-know-whose.  Do you think it was a good idea that we let the curtains puddle onto the floor?  I like the relaxed feel.

And, I'm only gonna show you one more room cause I don't want to show you our whole apartment.  But, I am going to show you our bedroom since it's cozy and simple.
I love me any shade of darker pink, so our suzani-esque coverlet (another score for 35 euros from the flea) adds some much needed pizazz to the bedroom.  The vintage suitcase belonged to Art's great-grandfather.  I do love our little oval windows.   Lamp on the bedside table from Ikea as well as the Lack table acting as a nightstand (right).

I hope you enjoyed the little tour.  And all my lies.

In all honesty, I just LOVE this place.  Not matchy matchy or out-of-a-catalog looking and just a wondey mix of textures and love.  It's somebody's place in Barcelona.  From here.  Seen over here.

omg, my jaw was on the floor scrolling through those photos feeling fairly disgusted with myself for never before attempting to paint living room worthy art on dreary afternoons and for my clearly lackluster flea market scouring abilities AND THEN thinking "these don't look like views from Austria..what's with the green outside!?"...you win sneakiest blog posting...ever! :)

Well, I am totally with you... not with the lies... but your budding imagination!
Brilliant, love those rooms and could easily live in them too! Gorgeous!
I stopped believing after I read the painting story! Being a painter myself, it did not sit well.... LOL! Certainly some "artwork" could be done on an rainy afternoon!
You've got the style, all you need now is the cash!
And some elbow grease!!!!

Good luck, darling!
