Hi there sweetling! Now that I’m all moved into my new place I thought it might be nice to take you on a little tour.
The flat is massive. So many of the places I looked at were pokey and horrible, but this one is gorgeous. It’s got huge windows and the place is just filled with natural light. The rooms are huge so I have plenty of space, and the cats have loads of room to run about it. It’s great.
This is the dining area. It’s so light and airy that for the first time in years I’ve been sitting at the table to eat meals instead of munching in front of the telly. I got this table and chairs from Aldi for just $150. I spotted it on moving day and it was such a great find.
I’m so happy with my kitchen. I’ve lived in places with horrible, tiny kitchens before and I hate that. This one is huge, with loads of counter space and a gas cooker. I’m having so much fun preparing meals for myself in this kitchen. (Don’t mind the dirty dishes on the sink, I’d just had breakfast when I took these pictures).
The loungeroom is also huge, with really plush carpets. My parents bought me a couple of tall shelves to store my DVDs and books. I’ve been experimenting with different wall hangings. At the moment, I’ve got some of my artsy knitted jumpers hanging on the walls. I was inspired by one of my favourite Frida Kahlo paintings, My Dress Hangs There.
And now for my bedroom! (Oo-er!) The corner of the room has a brilliant window that lets in so much sunshine. At the moment, I’ve got the cat’s apartment in the window, but I’d like to get a big squashy armchair to put there eventually. I’m also saving up for a double bed. I’m only one little person, but it’s cramped when both the cats decide to sleep with me.
This is my vanity area, where I do my hair and makeup in the morning. I just love having so much space to spread out all my things. There’s even a light right above the mirror, which is fantastic. I think that I’ll be filming my makeup tutorials here from now on.
So, what do you think of the new place? I’m pleased as punch.
