With only 3 days before the removal, we're still working on the house. Three months ago, when we signed the contract, we expected it would be a lot of work, but along the way, there always were unexpected things that crossed our path and there's always more work then planned.
The first boxes have been moved already. Boxes with Christmas decorations and UFO's. I thought I wouldn't need them anymore in our appartment ;o)
The walls of the sitting room are painted in 'Wild Silk', which I absolutely love. It's not white, not ecru, but a very warm color, which I like to compare with the color of mango-yogurt. It goes very well with the dark oak floor we chose. It needs to be finished with plinths, but, along with many other things, that will be done once we've moved in.
Onze gang, die ooit donkergroen en oranje was, is intussen deels geverfd in dezelfde kleur als het salon. Beneden moet er nog geschilderd worden en je ziet de oranje gloed weerschijnen op de geverfde muur. Maar de gang ziet er zo ook al een stuk beter uit: de lichte kleur maakt de ruimte aangenamer en minder 'bedrukkend'.
Our hallway, once dark green and orange, is now partly painted in the same color as the living room. The downstairs part still needs to be done and you can see the orange glow on the painted wall. But, I love how the light color brightens up our hallway and makes it look larger and less 'oppressive'.
And last but not least our kitchen. We first settled for ecru walls, but, since we've bought a magnolia white kitchen, we thought this would be too much. So we settled for... green! I will only be sure that we made a good decision here once the kitchen is placed, but I'm quite confident it'll turn out fine. At least the green matches the ecru we will use on the window frames very nicely and it also goes well with the grey tile floor.
O ja, nog even dit: ons internet is al overgezet van het appartement naar het nieuwe huis. Daarom kan het iets langer duren voor ik mails en bestellingen beantwoord, maar weet dat ik dit - binnen de mogelijkheden - zo snel mogelijk doe. Bedankt voor je begrip!
Before I forget: our internet connection has already been installed at our new house, so I don't have an internet connection in our appartment anymore. My responds to your e-mails and orders therefore might take a little longer. Thank you for your understanding!
Have a nice day!
