For the past few days I’ve had nothing but the ‘new’ old house on my mind. I am getting really excited to move in, but of course nervous at the same time. I mean, it’s MOVING after all. But- I do so solemnly swear that I am not going to whine or complain about a THING- since I have it fairly easy this time around., which is great since it allows me to focus on what to do with the Dutch decor.
First, why am I expecting this to be easy? Well, we have a moving company coming in on a Thursday to box everything up. The following day they will come and whisk everything away to the new house (down the street) and the rest is up to us. I like the idea of a clean slate, starting over, and no piles. The kitchen will be new, as will a few of the details in my coffee nook.
Silly person that I am, I am most excited about this coffee area. I really have a hard time thinking beyond this front room since it’s just so awkward and strange. It’s funny when you’re renting because although you’re living there, you’re not living there forever. So any changes or additions I want are temporary. That makes it a little difficult.
But the other day I noticed the absolutely gorgeous chairs for sale at a shop down the street. I love them. I went home and did some research to learn that they were a) affordable, b) Dutch design from a Dutch company, and c) available from several online and brick and mortar shops. I want two (€159 ea):
