INTERIOR LOVE: renovating my new home.

my lovely ones! now i'll finally show you the pictures of the renovating process (... which we have finished yesterday - yay!) - you cannot imagine how much fun it was to shop for the new colourful wall paint and accessories such as paint brushes, rollers, acrylic paint and wood varnishes. i simply love diy markets - and that's not simply because of the name ... in german we call it 'baumarkt', it's less romantic and creativity enunciating than the english term, don't you think?

i already thought that painting the walls would become an arduous work, because our second last flat has been painted by a professional painter, and he has been rewarded with more than 1000€ (and he still made a very good offer). he processed 150 square meters in 3 days. when i was younger i wondered why he had taken so much time - but now i can understand XD ... at least since yesterday i'm suffering from a bad leg, or rather knee, i've got bruised arms, and - for the very first time in my life - blisters, on my HANDS! can you imagine that? that's amazing haha XD ... i have never had blisters there, not even when i had to work upon bulk orders for 1000 cranes for the MBFW or schloss einstein which i have finished in 3-4 days.

... but still i cannot be happier, really. it was so much fun painting the walls with those beautiful trend colours from schöner wohnen (orchidee and lagune) - while working i have slowly realized that this place will be my new home ... for the next years, or longer! and i sensed an enlarging sense of joy in my heart. when i sat outside on my balcony, watching my beautiful big and richly green spruce, i felt happy. really happy. i felt at home. i looked inside, saw all the covering sheets, the empty paint pots and the beautifully coloured rooms in pink and blue, and i felt happy. i thought: yes. now i'm home.

i can't even begin to tell you how happy i am, how much i love this new feeling.

i'm at home.

    I can't wait to see it all set up.. then you will really be home, WOOT :)

  5. Oh, liebe dahi, die Farben sind einfach wunderschön! Und Du klingst so glücklich, dass es eine wahre Freude ist, die mich gleich mit ganz glücklich macht <3 Und Ihr wart wirklich fleißig! Ich gebe zu, ich habe nämlich noch nie selber geweißelt sondern das Ganze immer vergeben ... Blasen bekomme ich vor allem von der Gartenarbeit oder wenn ich früher auf den Feldern meiner Großeltern das Heu zusammen gerecht habe :)

    Ich wünsche Dir weiterhin so viel Freude mit Deinem neuen Domizil, hoffentlich sind die Blasen schon wieder verheilt!

    Alles Liebe von Rena

  6. Liebe Dahi,
    ich freue mich mit dir.
    Malen und tapezieren hab ich mit am liebsten gemacht. Dabei passiert soviel und es ist hinterher immer eine totale Veränderung und man hat das Gefühl was geschafft zu haben.
    Dein Gefühl angekommen zu sein und Zuhause glücklich zu sein, kenne ich sehr gut. Aus diesem Gefühl ist Verliebt in Zuhause! entstanden :-)
    Ich freue mich schon auf viele, weitere Geschichten aus deinem neuen Zuhause.
    GLG Nadine
