My New Home with Tons of Photos!

We finally had some free time on our hands and took some photos of the new apartment, and by we I mean the boyfriend took them while I was bossing him around. Hope this post isn’t too boring for you guys, as I’m very happy with my new home and I wanted to share it with my internet buddies!
I finally live in a place that feels cozy and it’s dark enough to play video games inside when the sun is shining and people are outside living life. Our previous apartment was luxurious and fancy, which doesn’t always equal home. We call it the “fuck place”. The fuck place is the kind of place a rich kind of guy would bring in ladies to impress and swoon, with the hope to get lucky later the night. So… I said, it wasn’t very homey! New place is dirty and everything is broken, and this is just why I love it!
I wanted to make before and after photos, because when we first moved in it was really crappy, hence I was missing a whole week from the bloggy trying to make it less crappy. Alas, my laziness got the best of me yet again so I didn’t make before photos… story of my life dude, sigh…
Any who, we’ll start the tour with my favorite place – the kitchen!!! 

Those cupboards were the ugliest things I ever laid my astigmatic eyes upon! They had a very soviet – looking lemon paintings on top and a nice vintage yellow hue. People from Eastern Europe will appreciate the pain of soviet decorations, but for my other fellow bloggers there is no possible way to explain how awful those cupboards were. Just use your imagination!
The cupboards had to be destroyed or at least hidden from sight, so I had to get creative. I had a fancy cook book mom gifted me and I used it the best way I know of – tearing up the pretty pictures and sticking them on top of the cupboards. For the record, I might someday cook something from these pages, might, not promising anything though!

Here is a closeup of a mouthwatering cherry pie recipe.

And here is yours truly, pretending to be wondering what to cook for dinner, instead, I was thinking about Hugh Jackman’s pecks.
Here are my jar ingredients up close. I have everything, even stuff I don’t know how to use, like curcuma, I have no idea how to cook curcuma. O_o
For the other part of the kitchen I bought some vintage paintings and checkered cloths to try and hide the dirt and nail holes. Mission accomplished! The door you see leads to our balcony where we spend a lot of time gossiping and cursing the people walking down the street.
Here’s a shot of the most beautiful girly curtains and the fridge I use to store stuff that are close to my heart: paper gifts from people who are dear to me and food!

A vintage kitchen hanger you probably saw on my Instagram.

And of course, jams! This wouldn’t be a proper vintage girly blog if there weren’t any jams! The pink one is a jam of roses! I never knew jam of roses existed, so I was dying to try it. I bought one when I was with mom and first thing she said to me was “Rose jam gives diarrhea”… The perks of having a mom who is a nurse – always informative about various bodily functions.
After my glorious jams, we move onto the room in which we spend most of the time, because the internet is here! We have tons of pink stuff, because I wanted pink stuff and boyfriend doesn’t mind being called gay. Sorry boyfriend, I need pink to survive! The fancy computer with the gray chair is my precious. 
The lamp next to it is a Japanese paper lamp I bought from an incredibly talented girl which makes beautiful lamps like the one here. Go visit her page! I don’t know if she ships internationally, but if you’re from Bulgaria, definitely check her out!
A closeup of the lamp.
This is the huge couch which we use to play PS3 games on (currently GTA5) and on the front wall is the baby crossbow we bought for Christmas. In front you can see boyfriend’s computer and a bar-like shelf with our very officey looking lamp and an awesome Fashion book the boyfriend gifted me for my Birthday.

Here you can see a sneak peek of  the book, which I will be showing you in my April Favorites post soon. In front is my huge wardrobe… ALL…MINE and my favorite Witcher poster. The door leads to a room which we call “The pointless room”.

Here is The Pointless Room. We call it that way because we don’t spend a lot of time here and we mostly use it to store our stuff. Because we don’t use it the cats love it and they spend 90% of their time here. Those cats are the most antisocial cats on the planet, wonder where they get it from…

Nothing much to mention here except for my inspiration board on the wall and the red bamboo thingy next to it is actually a food tray. On the brown wall next to the door we placed our bigger crossbow and my polaroid photos from Printic

Closeup of the crossbow and photos. I know, it’s a weird combination, think of it as tough love…

And now for the room where the magic happens, and by magic I mean sleeping! The bedroom!
Have to be completely honest and say I did a few Photoshop brushes here, because it’s not the best kind of room. I removed a few stains off the wall, that apparently can’t be cleaned with human strength, I’m not sure Wolverine’s adamantium claws would work either. 
I also removed an electric toothbrush that was suspiciously resembling a vibrator and that’s about it, everything else is legit!

Nothing much to say about the bedroom except for the awesome mirror which I used to place all my makeup, perfumes and jewelry. 
Going to end this post with a few artsy fartsy shots and that’s it! Hope you enjoyed the tour, have a beer on me!

  1. I love your apartment, it looks amazing and I love all your quirky little touches. I will hopefully be moving soon so am on the lookout for interiors inspiration!

    PS I have no idea what curcuma even is!

  2. Много готини снимки!
    Вкъщи имаме същата готварска книга, обожавам картинките в нея, но рецептите са почти неизпълними. 😀
    Помня едно пълно фиаско точно с черешовия пай…
    Anywayz, много як интериорен пост!

  3. Изглежда страхотно, толкова е хубаво да се чувстваш у дома си 🙂 Обожавам слънчеви апартаменти, слънцето и светлината карат всичко да изглежда приятно и хубаво !:)

  4. You can see your pleasure in your new home. You need some art…your walls are so empty! But I do love your crossbow art, and the paper lamp!! Your kitchen cabinet solution is inspired and maybe even useful one day. And your couch is a.may.zing! Also jealous of your mirror. But no photos of the deck! Maybe later. Have to see where you gossip!! Thanks for the tour, now I can picture you on your captain's chair steering a course through the world we know as internet, giving back chat to the first mate in the adjacent chair…perfection! xo Jazzy Jack

  5. I love the kitchen…It's yellow and It's sooo CUTE!!! <33 And the curtain is very cuteeee! IT'S GINGHAM!!:O I can't wait for moving out and living alone!!!!>,< I can't wait for designing my own house…Ahhh It must be so fun!
    The couches in the "Pointless Room" look so comfy:D I think I'm gonna make couch like that for my room, for playing games lol!
    GTA5!! I miss playing it…I've finished it 4-5 times LOL
    YES! Cats are the most antisocial thing in this world! :< One of my cat is reeeeAAAAllly antisocial to me, only comes home when it's eating time. ugh. but I can't help to loving cats because they are so cuuute<333 Especially fat fat cat 😀
    Btw, when I'm typing this, my kitten fell onto my laptop because she had so much fun playing chase with her brother….

    Adventure of P-Chaaan!!

  6. You guys! I love your apartment! It's so DIY and not perfect and packed with stuff that you got at second hand stores, and that's totally a compliment in my world, lest there be doubts. The vichy tablecloths and curtains are so rad! And it is quite handy to have favorite recipes plastered to the kitchen cupboards, now that I think about it..Especially if they come with gorgeous pics. That's a tip I just might steal.

    Anyway, enjoy the new place and be happy in it.

  7. Честит дом! 🙂 Много ми харесва идеята да залепиш картинки от списания по кухненските шкафчета. Иначе и ние имахме същите преди хаха. "Pointless room" е идеалното име за стая! 😀

  8. I love the new place. My favourite is the internet room. And the mirror is so perfect. Kinda want to see the electric toothbrush now..haha! The bamboo tray on the wall is such a great DIY touch!

  9. Quit being so damn cute! Gosh. Hehe. <3 I LOVE what you did with your kitchen. I've totally done that kind of thing to cover up unsightly stuff on walls and cupboards, except I used party fliers and stuff from music mags. Heh. I feel like the recipes were way more appropriate and practical, given the location. 😀 Overall, I'm so impressed with how much you were able to do with such a small place. It looks so bright and inviting. I love all the natural light!

  10. You look so happy and your new home is fantastic so I can see why! Your kitchen is amazing and the cookbook pictures on the cupboards is such a cool idea. Your mum is quite right; rosehip jelly will give diarrhea and I am told (thankfully don't know this from experience) that it could potentially be itchy too. Ewwwww. Boyfriend must love you a helluva lot to be okay with all that pink. AND I want your couch! It looks so comfy and I will just go to sleep on it. I am coming over to make nachos and drink cider and I am bringing houseplants. xoxoxo

    Sorry…but your apartment tour rendered me into the most basic white girl ever xD
    I'm seriously fangirling over how you've set up your place though, it looks fantastic! I love what you did with the kitchen cupboards, haha, that's adorable. Also, rose jam?? It sounds spectacular. Despite what your mother mentioned…aha

  12. yes yes yes, of course I loved the post! the photo where your cat's tail is hanging made me laugh by the way.
    now about the details. those cookbook photos on the cupboard doors are something I haven't seen before but it's definitely a cool idea. and I love your spice jars. very good system! those mirror photos of you are beautiful and your perfume collection is impressive. and actually all the photos are beautiful, full of colours and light. your boyfriend did a good job with them. oh and of course congrats for the new place!!! you've done an awesome job with it! looks incredibly warm and homely 🙂

  13. dang girl, that's a really big apartment! I thought it was clever how you covered up the cupboards- and even more so if you actually use the recipes 😉 and how AMAZING is your couch?! it's like a giant bed, and has a built in shelf on the side. I wants it, and I wants it now. It all looks so cozy and very you and you should invite me over for some coffee 🙂

  14. Wow! Your house is really great! Each and every corner just screams adorable. I can just imagine and how cozy and pleasant it is to stay in there. By the way, how's living in there? I hope you and your boyfriend are settling in real well. Thanks for sharing that, Keit! All the best!
