Here are some little snapshots of my new life with my other half. We've been living together for about two months now, teething problems aside it's lovely living with my best friend.
When my parents came over from Germany they took me to IKEA and kitted me out with some things for the spare room (calling it a second bedroom at it's size is a bit of a joke). All the furniture is white which is really calming and it'll be a lovely space to work in if I get onto my masters course. At the moment it's my hideout for reading the Daily Mail (those of you with beady eyes can see that these photos were taken the day Kate went into labour).
There really isn't a theme to our flat. I like colourful accessories and trinkets, mainly collected from places I've been to and lived. For example the now empty blue bottle of white wine from a vineyard in Montpellier which somehow survived the move back to the UK. My boyfriend has a music and vinyl obsession which explains the rest of the decor in our living room. My favourite record of his to borrow is the 'Johnny Cash live at Folsom Prison' album. Pretty much flawless.
The kitchen then becomes more of my territory. I love to cook, it's something that my mother has passed down to me and it's really important to me. The kitchen also plays host to my little obsession with royal family memorabilia. Can't seem to help myself. As you can see I'm also a little bit of a gin fan. Just a little bit...
I'm going to drag my boyfriend to the flea market tomorrow morning so maybe I'll end up picking up some more stuff. Will keep you posted.
