Christmas Brunch

So what did you do at Christmas? S and I both had to work but I couldn't let Christmas go without not celebrating it. So my dear friend V came by and we had brunch. It was lovely.

Woonbeurs 2009

Just some pictues I wanted to show you from the interior fair De Woonbeurs that I visited this year. They had so many inspiring things to see that I was overwhelmed and loved at the same time.

Here are some before and after pictures of our new kitchen. We weren't planning to install a new kitchen but once we started working on the house, we realised that we might as well do it now while there's a mess all around. Luckily we knew exactly how it was going to look like because we had done our research and visited a lot of kitchen stores.

This is the before...

Not very much to see. We placed a wall between the corridor and the kitchen so that the kitchen would have more space.

And this is the after...

I think that this is the best part of the new house. It has been installed now for about a week and I can't stop looking at it. Before this we already lived in the house for 7 weeks and lived on take out food and microwave meals. I am so done with it that I appreciate everything much more. On Christmas eve, we had family over and we made a great meal which everybody loved! On December 31st we're having friends over for New Years and are planning to cook again. S and I made a promise to ourselves that we won't be having take out for a long, long time.

Update 2009

So, finally an update about what is going on with me and the house. First I want to show you some great pictures of the snow we had last week. Doesn't it looks beautiful?

I had some problems with putting pictures on my computer; that's why it took so long to write and show you something nice. Well, be prepared everyone, I'm back! And it's great ot be back!

Hello everybody,

Remember me, I'm the girl that never blogs...

I am so sorry for not keeping you updated and leaving messages on my blog but it has been such a hectic time. Between my last post in September and now, a lot has happened. On November 2nd, we recieved the key of our new house in The Hague. We immediatly started painting and making the upstairs ready so that we would be able to live there because the builders would start later that day with the ground floor on the toilet and the ceiling of the living room. Initially we wouldn't going to do the kitchen. The old kitchen would stay and we would buy a new one next spring. But when the builders started working we realised that it would be better to rip out the old kitchen and so that's what we did. We already knew what kind of kitchen we wanted so we ordered it and they ripped the old one out. So we have been out of a kitchen now for almost a month and we have been living there for about three weeks now... The new kitchen will be installed next week and I can't wait. Since last week we could start on decorating the living room and realised that most of the old furniture has to go because the shape and size of the new livingroom is different than the old one. So now everything doesn't look right. So slowly we are changing everything around and buying new furniture and getting rid of old ones.

Internet is finally working so hopefully next time I have pictures to show you. I have been looking at different websites for inspiration and boy, there's a lot out there for interior lovers like me! I can recommend the blog of madebygirl, decor 8 and Yvestown. I check out their website almost everyday and saw some great things. Go and check them out!

Well, so far a little bit about what has been going on. I promise, next time I'll have some pictures of our new house!!

Have a great weekend!
