i have some pretty big news… we bought a house! this has only been a few months in the making, we certainly weren’t planning on buying a new house and moving with a baby on the way. we’ve even done a few renovations in our flat (new parquet floors, new bedroom cupboards) with the intention of staying for possibly a few more years – even though we knew that there was an expiry date on our lovely little one bedroom home.
but then we saw THE HOUSE. and we took a gamble, and it payed off. now our move in date is early April: one month before kiddo is set to hit the scene. we won’t be doing any renovations just yet, apart from painting all the walls white, but that doesn’t mean i haven’t been dreaming about what i would want to do. the new house has two bathrooms (!) and somewhere down the road i’d love to redo them completely – or at least just have some new tiles and cool floors put in.
this is, partly, fuelled by my new TV obsession: Fixer Upper. do you guys watch it? i am really considering moving to Waco, Texas just so Chip & Joanna can redo a house for me (apparently something some couples have actually done!) you can see all their before and afters on Joanna’s blog. while watching this past weekend i was reminded of how cool black hardware is when they revealed this bathroom renovation. this is a trend that’s been popping up a lot for the past year (at least) and when paired with a mostly white bathroom it has a distinctly Danish vibe about it.
