I know I really should have waited until we've actually moved in and have finished all the rooms with the little details before posting about our new Berlin flat, but I just couldn't help myself. Here is a sneek peek of the current status of things. We have most of the main necessities already, (except for a closet!) but the small things like lamps, decoration and the things that make a home a home are still missing. I envision countless flea market visits in the next few months and to be honest I couldn't be more excited to finally settle down and build a little nest with AC. The date has been set as well, I'm moving on the 12th of February after my photo school exams. (only one month left woohooo!!!)
As you can see on the before picture, the bare flat was pretty "soc-real" with ugly floors, so the first thing we've decided to do was to redo those. We chose a mid brown tone as I personally don't fancy light wood and dark tones would have made the already very small flat seem even smaller. As for the furnitures, we are trying to mix simple, clean lines with a touch of pop art chic and a pinch of mediterranean rustic feel. When it's done we're hoping to decorate this room with the souvenirs we've collected on our travels. Still a long way to go...
The office will be mainly AC's territory so we were aiming to make it a touch more masculine than the rest of the flat. We're still missing a rug (I'm thinking b&w stripes) and I'm currently selling the small black sofa on Ebay as it has overcrowded the room but in general it's coming alone nicely.
The most uncomplete part of the flat (no need for a before photo here). We have an amazing bed but that's pretty much it. It's time to get to work! :)
We are actually thinking about investing in kitchen furniture, but for now the kitchen is almost done. The only thing we really miss is a nice curtain and some herbs and flowers for the window. The light in this room is amazing so I cannot wait to cook/bake and photograph for you in there! :)
