my living room5/10/2012
My boyfriend and I have lived in our apartment for nearly four years, with our two cats Erlend and Eirik. We bought all of our furniture as soon as we moved in and not much has changed since then. The only thing that I update is our mantle, which I do according to season. For Christmas I made a large wreath out of coffee filters and for Halloween I had angry cats hissing. For now, I can't get enough of flowers.
We spend most of our time in the living room, since the dining room is nearby. Truthfully we use our coffee table for most meals, especially when watching a film and eating vegetarian pizza. My favorite is when both of my cats sleep on the furry chair; it's like a giant cat is embracing them. You can tell by my frames that I love thoughtful animals and the film Badlands.
The first thing we bought as a couple was our couch in 2007, so it holds a soft spot for me. You must always start somewhere!
Erlend and I have been spending more time on the patio lately. I even bought some new things for our little outdoor space, which I'll share in a future post. Here's a playlist that I've been listening to a lot lately (while forcing myself to paint watercolors) x
