In my Instagram you might have seen that the hashtags #Movethatbus #RentalHeaven and #Getridofuglytiles is still going strong. We have moved into our new rental house that luckily feels more like our own home then any of our previous houses. This time around we had the chance to decide on most of the finishes. Finishes that, to me make a big difference in how I feel about my home. Where rental houses often make it necessary to turn a blind eye towards ugly tiles, a hideous kitchen or an unidentifiable color on the wall, this house is the best one yet! A wooden floor (yeah!), a marble counter top (hurray!, grey simple kitchen cabinets and walls on which we can choose our on color (yessss!) make me so happy! For the first time, this is a place that I want to show off and trust me, I will!
Am I excited? Probably the understatement of the year! I am beaming with happiness to have the opportunity to completely renovate our new rental home . Thank you very much new landlord.
As we close one door and will be openening another, I will be sharing the journey of the renovations and move into our new home with you on the blog and Instagram
It has been a long and happy summer break but it is good to be back home.
One of the highlights for me was taking my boys to New York City, the place where we lived before we came to Dubai. It is the city I moved to with my husband and a baby, the city where my youngest was born and the city that inspired me so much that I decided to follow my heart and get into interior styling. So you can imagine how special this holiday was.
We are back home! Back to normal life, routine, school lunches and sport bags. Yet to be honest, after 12 weeks of holiday, it’s kinda nice to be behind our computers again with our trusted home brewed coffee.
As we mentioned to you earlier, we weren’t bored over the last few weeks. Because next to having quality time with family and friends, we paid our favorite shops back home a visit, for inspiration and sourcing as we are in de midst of a few exciting projects.
