new apartment, new life


we found an apartment in vienna! 

i don't have any good pictures as the apartment viewing day was a bit of a whirlwind, but it's in a building from 1895 and it has all those charming features like pretty moldings, ceiling rosettes and parquet floors.

this is a first for me, as i never lived in an apartment that has "good bones" aka looks beautiful even when empty.

so of course i've made a few moodboards for our three rooms:

anna's


bedroom,




& living room...






we've been working hard to reduce our posessions to 20 boxes, a leather sofa, an eames chair and 3 rugs, which we are going to move ourselves with a van. 

i see some big ikea trips in our near future...

color of spring


grey should be the official color of spring in switzerland. it's very damp and foggy with the occasional sunny or snowy day. a mixed bag to say the least.

i've recently been hoarding grey shoes: from the bone heel topshop boots and heeled ballerinas to the vero moda flat mules i thought i'd never find. now i feel prepared for the typically unpredictable swiss spring weather.

it sure is a long way to sandal weather around here.
