Ta-da!

Sasha - December 26, 2008

OK I never thought I’d be able to share this last post this side of the new year. There were times I even wondered if I’d ever move in. Everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong with this project, but I don’t take it as an omen - just a dodgy contractor who couldn’t project manage to save himself! I actually asked him at one point, “Don’t you want me out of your life?! What will it take for me to help you get me out of your life?” He laughed, but I was somewhat more serious. Anyway, we got there. Almost. There are still some things he needs to do. Install the heating, finalise electricity, water pressure is a bit low, etc. But hey, I’ve got running hot water, a kitchen to cook in and a hob to turn on when it gets too cold.

I think it looks gorgeous. I almost don’t want to leave the apartment. Of course I’m a perfectionist so there are little things that normal human beings wouldn’t notice that I am learning to live with (maybe the floor could have been a slightly different shade, that light switch should have been over to the left a bit,¬†etc, etc) but at some point even I have to stop and take it in.

I still need a lot of furniture as you can see, but all in good time…

So thanks for coming on this journey with me, and without furthter ado…

The study space

The living space

Just playing with arrangements…

The kitchen

The entrance area - laundry on the left and toilet on the right

The toilet

The bathroom

…yep, this is my little piece of bliss in the world…

  2. I love it… it is truly a beautiful space. I think you’ve earned yourself some hot tea and a relaxing night in your new home. :)
