At the moment, I’ve completely given up and lost all interest in the current apartment we live in. All focus is on the new one, and my Pinterest is on fire! My children have created their own boards and even though they dream of their own rooms decorated with Nerf racks on the walls, slides and neon rainbows I’m thinking learning how to compromise is an important lesson in life :). Therefore, I’m now doing my very best to get them into liking earthy tones and cozy spaces. They are not quite convinced yet, but slowly starting to accept the fact that we’re not going to purchase a Lightning McQueen car bed or one that’s shaped like a seashell. I blame Pinterest for the inspiration. It’s both a blessing and a curse.

This mood board sums up the mood and colors I like. This time, I really want the children’s rooms to feel like children’s rooms. A space that invites to play but is easy to keep organized. I think organized spaces helps with creativity, calms down and feels peaceful. My goals for the children’s rooms.

While my brain slowly starts to feel like mashed potatoes, I realized, that I have one isolated space to escape too. Our new apartment! It’s completely under construction and looks like a war zone, but the light never disappoints and most importantly, it’s totally corona -free. So today, I’m going to dress up (aka wear my best pajama) and go to work with a big bottle of hand sanitizer, some toilet paper and my laptop under my arm.

I’ve been trying to come up with things to put our time and energy towards now when we have way more time on our hands. The apartment would be the most natural project, but unfortunately, we are still planning the floorplan and overall layout so we are much dependent of other people and there is not much we can do by ourselves. It’s way more difficult than expected to fit all our wishes and demands into one space, but we are getting there!!! However, it looks like our days with a big and gorgeous walk-in-closet are over. I want a big kitchen and dining room instead, so I think we’ve finally come up with a compromise that feels really good. That’s adulting if something, no?

I want a white kitchen with coffee colored marble and a huge black dining table. Love the one in this collage! Pretty much exactly how I imagine our dining space to look like. I even ordered a painting from the most talented artist I know. Art is so important to me and brings personality into any space. Can’t wait for the project to proceed. May all of this be over very soon.
