I’m getting ready to film a home tour now that our apartment is finally almost all decorated and arranged in the way that I feel is perfect. It’s so close to being there.

In the mean time, while I clean, hang the last few images in the guest room for a second gallery wall, and dust off all our books I thought we’d go down memory lane of all the versions this apartment has been in since we moved in almost 3 years ago.

This will be a visual timeline of our home with a few stories here and there. Enjoy.

Moving In

I can’t believe its been almost 3 years since we found this place. We live in a new building in the new neighborhood of Copenhagen called Sydhavn. Our apartment is a two-bedroom, 1 bathroom with large windows and a balcony overlooking the canal.

Setting up our furniture — Looking back, I can’t believe how naked and bare it looks.

The start of my DIY projects. Up-cycling has really helped re-vamp and “adult” our apartment and style.

Mini upgrades that are Rental Friendly: Removable wallpaper to our kitchen backsplash, plants, + art work.

A foam headboard really helped give our bed some shape and dimension.

Side Note: I can’t believe we slept on two single beds pushed together, that weren’t even the same height for 2+ years!!

2 years in and we finally got a new bed. Which meant we re-arranged our bedroom a bit.

Loving my new vanity area.

And now finally, we’ve had a chance to style the entry way!

Stay tuned for the home tour video to see how it all looks together!
