After more than 6 years in our beloved apartment in the 5th district, it is time for a new chapter. A bigger chapter. More space. Maybe a bit more mature. And incredibly exciting! For the past weeks, I have been too afraid to post even as much as a hint on Insta Stories, worried I would jinx our luck… But after waking up in the new apartment for the first time today, I found it only fitting to finally give you a first glimpse at our new home.
For over 2 years, we looked for something with an extra bedroom or two. A little more space for us to come home to between all the travels. And just a few months after we finally stopped looking for good (after all, our “old” apartment was pretty awesome as well), the dream abode appeared out of nowhere. On our 12-year anniversary in Montenegro, Mike had a weird intuition and suggested we browse apartments again – this time to rent instead of purchase since we clearly had no luck in the latter. Just for fun, we thought. Little did we know that just 3 days later, mid-September, we would step into a place that felt too good to be true. And now, that the contracts have been signed and the official part is all done, I feel like I can finally share a few first (unfurnished) impressions with you.
While we pulled off the entire move within a week and 6 work-related flights shared between the 2 of us (thanks to my amazing mom and 4 professional movers), I am now spending every free minute frantically browsing interior shops, hunting for inspiration on Pinterest, exploring our new neighborhood and planning a bigger closet (hello walk-in), a guest room and a new home office. My head is bursting with ideas and my heart is bursting of happiness. Both Mike and I feel like little kids on Christmas. I cannot wait to start unpacking, decorating and sharing more with you in the upcoming weeks.
