Hi there lovelies!
As you might know, I recently moved to Amsterdam with my boyfriend. We are now temporarily (until july 1st, apartment for rent anyone?!) living in De Pijp, one of the most popular neighborhoods in Amsterdam. You might have seen all the amazing sights this neighborhood offers in last months’ outfit posts. I love outfit shooting here. We find a different location every time, and even our balcony makes a wonderful outfit shooting spot. And just everything you need is nearby. Just one step out of the door and you find the famous Albert Cuyp market, shopping streets, grocery stores, clubs, restaurants, clothing reparers… Everything! I love it here, so I’m hoping we find a new apartment in this same neighborhood soon.
For now it’s time to show you my current apartment. Everything was already furnished, so we didn’t choose any of the stuff. I think it’s very basic and nice looking. But I can’t wait to decorate and furnish a place of our own! Off to the photos!
This is our living room and 3D TV. It’s not ours. It was already here when we got here and we hardly ever use it, but it’s 3D so it’s awesome, haha! On the right you see my self made dress, for which I still want to buy one of those dust covers.
The couch on which we relax a lot. It’s a very good couch and you can even expand it to a bigger couch such that you can relax to the max while watching tv. And my Guardian Angel by Vlieger & Vandam! I didn’t even place it there for the photos. I use it so often that it’s just always resting on the couch like that, haha! On the left of the couch you see the stairs. Below the stairs is the door to our apartment.
The view from the couch when you look at the right. You see: a mirror and a little stool, a cabin and on the far left the door to the bathroom.
Our kitchen! My boyfriend Timo was making dinner while I was taking these photos. The dinner table is also expandable.
Our coffee pyramid! We have strong, very strong, very veeery strong and extremely strong. You choose!
The bathroom including a washing machine. Small, but functional.
The view from the bathroom: the door to the bedroom! Off we go…
Our sweet little bedroom. On the left you see the door to our balcony. The sea turtle I got from my boyfriend when he came home from his Hawaii vacation.
Other side of the bedroom. I keep some of my beauty products here, mostly nail polish. On the left you see my feather earrings. I wear them so often that they don’t even get to see the inside of my closet, haha! The baret and turban are there as well, but for a different reason. I couldn’t find a proper spot for it in the closet.
The door to the balcony! Only opens on sunny days…
And last, but not least, the view from the balcony! I really love how we have a tree in front of the balcony. This way we have a little more privacy. The balcony is faced south, so when the sun is out we get lots of it!
Hope you liked seeing this little apartment tour! Also hoping to show you a tour of a self decorated apartment in a view months!
