The Apartment of My Wildest Dreams – Part I

I am creating my dream home.

This year I am going to move into my first own apartment. With my first own I mean the first apartment that is not a room in a dormitory or an apartment where either of my parents live. I will be sharing my habitat (I’m being serious, I will spend most of the time in this beautiful cave, forever an introvert) with my boyfriend, the total diamond of my life, Tom. I am feeling really blessed because I can share my life with my best friend and my one true love. Might sound cheesy….yeah okay we pretty much are! (Also, we love cheese so much). Anyway, I feel so incredibly blessed with my sweetheart, my piece of gold.

Now, let’s get to work! *deviously rubs her hands*

The bedroom of my dreams, oh my. Have you ever imagined what your perfect bedroom would look like? I have an exact picture of the bed area in my head. I am only going to focus on the essentials though, otherwise this post would get way too long. Let’s start with the basics:

White. My bedroom is going to be very clear and bright. It will be calming and pure. I’m imagining white walls, maybe with a subtle mauve tinge, something calming. The room of my dreams has high windows, a complete window front would be THE DREAM, however, due to a lack of capital and the limited offer of apartments for rent in Berlin, I would also be happy with high windows. Or a high window. But, as my mantra is Dream Big, I’m saying that I want a freaking window front!

So, this room has to be bright during the day and offer a sight on the starlit sky during the night. The bed. A very essential part (hihihi). To be honest, I don’t have high standards when it comes to beds. Most of my life I have slept on tiny mattresses, on hard mattress, on creaking beds and on uncomfortable pillows. Or on no pillow at all. I do however have to admit that, in my wildest dreams, I am spending my nights on a king-sized mattress. I do not care if this mattress is positioned on simply a slatted frame or on wooden pallets (this would actually be quite hipster, hey), but I do want it to be big. I want to have enough space to roll around, and to not feel claustrophobic next to my boyfriend. (Okay, I have to admit that once when we were staying at my parents’ house we put two small mattresses next to each other and woke up on one of them in the morning).

The preferred colour for the duvet cover would be white, for the sheets I am imagining white (surprise!) with big, green leaves, bamboo leaves floating around…mh, how peaceful. Now it comes to the most crucial part of it all. Lights. There need to be lights above the bed. How else will you achieve this beautiful, dreamy, night sky feeling? So, fairy lights it is. Artfully draped from one side of the bedhead to the other. Hach, can you feel the calmness already?

Whether the mattress is alleviated or pretty much lies on the floor, there will be books next to it. Not many, just one or two for a relaxing bedtime reading before snuggling up and falling asleep.

I want the room to be very empty, plain, nothing that distracts our peaceful sleep. I will keep it simple but fill my bedroom with positive thoughts. Framed pictures will be saved for the living room ♥ . Whenever you are creating something for yourself, whether it is a drawing, a room or a cake (yes, cake is very important in life), always remember to stay true to yourself. Get inspiration on pinterest, tumblr, instagram, wherever really, but always remember that, in the end, this will be your own thing, so make it exactly the way you want it to be. This is a principal part of self-love. And always, always remember to love yourself. I believe in you.

So, I hope you enjoyed my little interior-design-tirade? I really hope so! And if yes, then I will let you in on my ideas regarding THE PERFECT LIVING ROOM in my next blog post.
