Isn’t moving fun? I think so. I’ve become somewhat of a moving pro. Since 2010, I’ve set up and moved into three different apartments in three different countries.
Moving is the best time to purge unwanted, or underused objects. If you’re a pack-rat like me, or as I like to call it, a sentimental person who likes to cherish objects, moving represents a time to reorganize, consider new uses for existing objects and do a bit of updating with new objects. This is, in fact, the exact same message I gave my brother who moved into a new apartment in Chicago this past weekend.
I am almost done setting up my new flat in Copenhagen. I still have the dining room to take care of, which is currently in shambles. We are dinning by candle light until we get the last component for our pendant light.
Here is a look at some of our fun purchases this past month:
01 We bought two red Nud classic collection pendant lights for our front hall. We decided to use a cylindrical edison bulb instead of the round ones.
02 Two Mr. P lamps to go on our bedside tables. Yes, I know a bit crude but these lamps make us laugh every night before we go to bed.
03 One Raskog Ikea kitchen cart which we turned into a bar cart.
04 A Normann Copenhagen hang lamp which is currently sitting on the floor until we buy a hook to put it in the ceiling.
05 A Lucky Boy Sunday pillow at my husband’s request. I have this great Anthropologie pillow that I bought a couple years ago in Toronto. It has lots of texture and wool which my husband says it’s too itchy and flat out detests. He wanted to replace the itchy pillow with something softer, so he chose this baby alpaca pillow. My anthro pillow has been re-purposed to another room.
All will be tidy and in its place by the end of the week, as we are preparing to receive our first Copenhagen visitors: my mother-in-law and sister-in-law.
