HAPPY FRIDAY! Today didn’t turn out at all how it was supposed to. My alarm went off at 6 a.m, like it was supposed to, but somehow I managed to fall asleep again on top of my phone, and didn’t wake up until 8.30.am. I was so upset, because today we were supposed to watch a Pedro Almodovar movie, and I had been looking forward to it so much. I should be giving myself the silent treatment for killing my alarm with my corpus.
Okay, this is the second to last part of the apartment tour, because, well, I am running out of things to show. I still need the office, but that still looks like a bomb went off in there, so it might be a while. Also, the walls are really bare, but that’s only because I take the placement of art very seriously, and I haven’t found the right spots yet. That’s very important.
This is it: the IKEA-fundament for my fundament. Handpicked from IKEA’s couch department after a long, tedious day of doing nothing but eating meatballs and trying out every.single.couch again and again and again, because my heinie kept forgetting what that HÄRNÖSAND two-seater felt like compared to the KNISLINGE. You know how you can stare yourself blind, right? It turns out that the same thing can happen to your posterior, when couch-hopping. So, yeah, I moved in for a day. I took my shoes off and went from one couch to another and made a day of it.
When I was in the hospital, I spent most of my time in a morphine haze surfing for secondhand armchairs on a Danish website equivalent to eBay on my phone. This is a chair from IKEA, which I saved a bazillion dollars on by buying it used. It was in perfect condition, and had the upholstery that I wanted. I also got my coffee table and my dining table from that website, and not only did I save so much money, but someone else also got rid of furniture that they no longer wanted — win win.
These prints were purchased at the same time as the cupcake print from Green Nest Shop” on Etsy.
And that’s it. I can’t tell you how much I love this living room. It’s so open and inviting, and holds so many possibilities. I swear, I walk through this apartment every day feeling like a million bucks.
