Our new home is bigger than what we have now, has two storeys and a small garden. All I ever wished for. What I didn’t realize is that even though our Amsterdam apartment is small, we use all of the space in a very active way because it’s on the same level. The doors are always open and every room is easy accessible. J glides from one to another, literally. That’s different when you have stairs to climb. Therefor J will have the biggest room, so it will be a place for her to sleep and play.
Thinking of moving makes me extremely excited about decorating the place, her place in particular (that’s why throwing out the old feels better than expected). But I have to bear in mind that this place will be temporary, that the house is for sale and we’re moving out in maybe one year (and put up with the not so smart lay-out and dark grey carpet upstairs). Perfect for us to get to know the city a little better than the huge Humanoid store and the train station.
But that means no dramatic changes like a hundred big holes for frames or hysteric wallpaper. I have to be a little more creative (or less) to make the place our place. For the last couple of weeks Pinterest is my everyday toilet buddy. Can’t wait to get my hands dirty on this one. And with this I mean our home!
