apartment dreams …

Some of you that follow me on Twitter may have read a while ago that Mike and I had been looking for a new apartment. Well … we gave up!! The ones we fell in love with were too expensive. Some that were perfect on the inside were in less favorable neighborhoods or by loud streets. One offer got rejected. One realtor was a crook … etc. I’m sure we’ll find the perfect place at one point, but for right now the search is on hold.

BUT since I was planning on furnishing a new place and re-decorating, I have this big pile of inspirational pictures, just waiting to be shared with you. I don’t really know how I would describe my style as far as interior decorating goes. I love light colors, fresh flowers and clean lines but I also want the place to feel comfortable and “homey” without looking too girly. You know what I mean? If I ever manage to have our future apartment look anything like these pictures I’ll be a happy little camper :)

    so many great inspiration! I know what you mean all white can look a little to clean sometimes you also want to feel comfortable at the same time which is quite hard.

    I absoloutly love the 9th photograph – I think it may be inspiration for a dining room? Anyway I love all of these photographs! I hope you and Mike find the right home in the near future darling.

    The perfect place will come at a time you least expect it. And it will come!!! Keeping my fingers crossed for you.
    I also just ran across the most perfect apartment. It’s been build in one of those new design buildings right outside of Copenhagen. It’s in a building called “Ottetallet” (the number 8) as it is shaped like an eight when seen from above. The apartment had two bedrooms and a huge kitchen and a huge living room. And a long balkony alongside all four rooms with HUGE windows. Great view included. Unfortunately it is not for rent but you can only buy it. And 2.050.000 Danish kroners (approx. 275.000 Euro) are slightly too much at the moment (though it was an okay price for Copenhagen). Still sad about it though…

    Love, Sarah

  6. Ah too bad… I´m sure you´ll find a great place when you stop looking though! ;) Good luck!

    These are exactly the kinds of interiors I like. I’m sure you’ll find somewhere perfect soon.

    Oh no! Aber ich bin sicher, wenn ihr am wenigsten daran dent läuft euch die perfekte Wohnung über den Weg :)
    Und den Einrichtungsstil würde ich auch so unterschreiben, perfekt ;)

    Wow, I love that style too and know exactly what you are talking about! At some point it’s so exhausting finding a new home you love in a good neighborhood!

    But as far as I could see on your shots, your home right now is a really pretty looking one too!!

    I wonder how your current apartment looks like!? maby you can show pictures some time? ;)

      While I would love to show you what my apartment looks like, I can’t :( I live with my boyfriend and since I already share so much of my life on the internet, the apartment is our place of privacy. I hope you understand!!

      However, sometimes I take pictures at home, so you can see some parts, ie. here:

    ich fühle mich dir, war auch kurz davor aufzugeben, aber wurde dann doch fündig… zwar etwas teuer für die gegend und ein paar kompromisse musste ich schon eingehen, aber man realistisch sein wenn man ein begrenztes budget hat. mir hat ein makler gesagt, dass es so kurz vor studienbeginn immer schwer ist eine wohnung zu finden, weil viele studentInnen aus den bundesländern und aus deutschland wohnung suchen. glaube dass es ab oktober leichter wird :) viel erfolg euch :*

  15. Great inspiration very airy and clean! I love redecorating my apartment and just can’t wait until we start to search for a new one one day..
