Did you know Boohoo also have a bit of home decor? I didn’t. But found a few pieces I really liked.
Remember the very much wanted wishbone chairs I spoke about? Well, we bought them. And a new dining table. The table is great. It’s solid. It’s earthy and dark. Lovely contrasts. But the chairs… Maybe I had too high expectations. Or maybe it’s just this fix idea how nice they look in everyone else’s home… But I’m not happy with them. And we can’t return them because we unpacked them. And didn’t realise until they were all unpacked how they just didn’t really fit in. They would’ve been better in all black, but I was scared the seat wouldn’t be black for long with all the rubbing on them. So. Back on square one with finding nice dining chairs. I mean, how hard can it be!?
Oh dear, where did the time go? It’s been a while since I checked in here. But life has been a little bit of a roller-coaster lately and so much has happened. I got a new job. Summer is here. It’s almost Christmas. The year is almost over. But I’m excited. I feel like life is getting better. Like I’m moving forward.
I feel excited. For a new year. For what life has in front of me. It’s a nice feeling. The feeling of going in the right direction.
Today I’m having a day off. I have been to the gym. Picked up the weeks groceries (and they even added chocolate for my pick-up order, it made me so happy. It’s like they know me from what I usually order and gave me the healthier option) and now I’m laying in the couch going through stuff for work. Yesterday we put up the few Christmas decorations we have. I said “if we don’t even try to celebrate Christmas here, we will never get used to it”. It’s weird to celebrate Christmas in the middle of summer, but we just need to change our mindset.
My balcony is the like the lost soul of the apartment.. It looks a bit abandoned, like someone tried but gave up.. It is a good balcony, great size, nice view, but somehow it just doesn’t work. It definitely needs a good clean after we sandpapered down our dining table out there, and then i’m dreaming of some new interior… And lots o new (not dying) plants and herbs…
New kitchen chairs. We have a small round dining table, with black metal stools that were perfect for our last apartment because it didn’t take up much space. Now we finally have space and and can invest in chairs that doesn’t hurt the butt after 5 minutes.
I’m in love with these from Utopiahome.
