a place to call my own5/24/2012
I thought I'd culminate the tour of my home with the kitchen and dining area, since they are my favorite and ought to be saved for last! Living in a rented apartment can be tough at times with the limitations which are inherent, such as no painting. I love bright additions of color with the help of appliances, since they warm up the room instantly. I feel that your home should reflect your interests, whether it be cooking, reading novels or storing a small record collection nearby. Needless to say, I enjoy all of them very much!
I have an absurdly large collection of magnets from different parts of the world. I keep them hidden on the side of our refrigerator and only have a few on the front from Denmark, Paris, Koln and the Czech Republic with vintage postcards underneath. Truthfully, I wish I would have amassed a much cooler souvenir collection, but alas I cannot turn back time! The best pot in the world (Le Creuset) sits atop.
In another room I have a "work desk" which basically means that I use it to forcefully study. I keep dessert boxes to rest my cat calendar on, which is from 2011. I suppose I will just keep celebrating 2011! Some of my favorite images are over my desk like patisserie sweets, Alphonse Mucha keepsakes and a photo of Erlend of course. I have others of Sofia Coppola and me in London nearby as well.
Do you keep your favorite things nearby in your own space?
