FOR THE HOME: office space

Being self-employed has been the most amazing experience so far. The last 4 months have literally gone by in a heart beat and not a single day goes by that I don’t love my “job”. During the Summer, Kathi and I didn’t have an office space for The Daily Dose yet and were mostly working from my dining table or sofa. Even though it sounds like a ton of fun at first, it quickly get’s kind of depressive being home all day – sometimes not even changing out of your pyjamas. I used to love getting up and dressed for my old job, grabbing coffee on the way and having more of a rhythm or daily routine. It was important to both Kathi and I to bring that routine back into our lives. On September 1st we got the keys to our little #tddoffice and it has been so exciting and fulfilling, leaving the house to go to our very own space every morning. We’ve already shared some impressions over on The Daily Dose, but just in case you missed it – here is a peek at the place that I now like to consider my second living room:

FOR THE HOME: a (coffee table) love affair

We’ve lived in our current apartment for over 2 years now, and every time I come home I still get excited and am thankful to be able to call it home. It is a home that Mike and I have created for ourselves and it is my happy place. It’s hard to say which is my favorite room or corner. Our rooftop deck is pure bliss during Summer, but when it is as rainy as this year, I spend most of my days in our living room. And let me just tell you, I have a serious love affair going on with our coffee table. Don’t ask me why, but it has always been “my baby” from the very beginning. It is never seen without fresh flowers and a few of my favorite items on display. I took these photos for a feature on The Daily Dose, but also wanted to share my little love affair with you!

FOR THE HOME: chinese garden stool

It’s been a while since I’ve updated things around the apartment, the main reason being that everything is basically furnished, so there is no room left for new items. Which is exactly why a chinese garden stool has been on my wishlist for over a year now. I first saw them somewhere on Pinterest and was immediately obsessed. Not the most useful item of furniture, but such a statement piece! Unfortunately, however, I never knew where to put it since there was simply no fitting space. Now, I am currently in the processes of re-doing our entry way in the hopes of creating more storage for shoes and jackets, which will clear up a little spot for the new stool for sure (at least that’s what I told Mike). Until then it is residing in our living room and I couldn’t be happier with the newest addition to our home! Happy Sunday
