All Moved In – Home Tour

It’s been 10 months since we moved into our little cottage, so needless to say, this post has been a long time coming. I’ve shared a few rooms individually, but this is my first attempt at a full home tour (as promised to many of you).

So don’t be shy, come on in 🙂DSC_0017_301I’m pretty proud of how comfortable we’ve made this house considering we had to source and purchase all new furniture (on a tight budget), and wait 8 months for our shipment from the US to arrive. I thought it would be fun to include the photos from the day we moved in to show how different it feels. There’s still a number of things I would like to do – mainly paint, but since we aren’t sure how long we’ll live here, I don’t want to open that can of worms. I love our location, and I’m so happy to finally be settled that I really hope we can stay another year. We’ll see what happens in August.

We’ve dealt with having a teeny tiny kitchen by basically extending it into the dining room.


recognize my Ikea hack dining table? :0

It’s all your fault Maia!


notice the dimple in the wall where they painted over wallpaper that is now pealing off… we’ve had lot’s of fun things to deal with at this house.

DSC_0100_381This is Andrew’s domain, so I try not to pester him about keeping it neat (which is why I only took a photo of this corner). The important thing is we can fit a queen-size air mattress in here for guests.


the previous tenant thought it would be nice to leave their loofah for us -among other things.

DSC_0029_071That’s it! Not designer-perfect, but I’m happy with it. 🙂

  1. Congrats – your home looks amazing! And your kitty is totally relaxed.
    That 70s inspired arm chair is amazing – I was just admiring exactly the same model in the Lumiere London last weekend :))
