Flat 3

Today I want to give you a virtual tour of our flat! It's been crazy trying to settle and we don't have internet in our flat yet - it's made blogging difficult, so I'm really excited to show you these photos. I also have many future blog posts in mind, I can't wait to fill you all in on everything.

Our living/dining room area before and after we moved in. 
Excuse my painting supplies on the right...hehe.
Our itty bitty kitchen. On the left we have our sink and fridge, right our washing machine (funny, huh?), stove and oven. 
Our bedroom. Yes, that's a pink bedspread, haha. Kurt was ok with it because it was the only one we could find for 12 pounds. 

The guest room before we put all our empty luggage in it & stood the bed up on itself and put it against the wall so we could put a desk in for Kurt. Don't worry, when you come to visit we'll make it all pretty & cozy for you.  =D

And that's about it! I don't have pictures of the bathroom yet, haha...but you're not missing much. I love having a little home; this is really the first time we've settled since being married. I must say though, homemaking is more work than I expected. Did I mention our flat is on the 4th floor? At least I don't have to worry about fitting in a daily work out. We've only been here a week and I can tell I'm "getting in shape"'s great!

On our first night in the flat we invited Kurt's friend, Daniel, over for dinner. Kurt met him 3 years ago on a bus when he was visiting London and they've kept in contact since (a very Kurt like thing to do). Daniel brought us several little house warming gives: bread pudding, a bottle of chardonnay and a really delicious smoothie drink called Innocent Smoothie. It was fun to have a visitor and in a strange way it made us feel home. I'm praying we have many more visitors to our flat. ;)

Here are a few other pictures from the week. 
We don't have a dryer, so hang drying it is!

  1. Indeed, what an adventure! Keep up the good work making your flat your home.

  2. Very cute! I can't wait to see what you put on the walls (once the paint dries). Are you allowed to put up shelves? They are a lifesaver in small spaces (we're not allowed to have them, though).
    I would advise you to be careful how much stuff you buy over the next year(s). In a small place stuff makes it feel cluttered quickly! I am constantly purging.
    I know you're going to make it super homey! I really hope we can visit.

  3. Ooooh, I wish I was there to buy a teapot (or 3!). There is a shortage of good teapots here.

  4. that looks awesome!! I love all the photos. I bet it feels so nice to be settled in. :)

  5. Wow!! I am beyond excited for y'all :) Love the flat! I'm so happy you're blogging.

  6. This is so so wonderful. I love your new home! Have you read A Severe Mercy? I think you would love it!
