We ordered our sofa!

Remember when I showed you my inspiration for our future couch a few months ago? It had to be dark blue, velvet and soft enough to disappear in for the entire evening. Good news! We finally found one! Finding a cool sofa proved quite the challenge: most affordable ones were too recognizable, and the real…

A secret, budget-proof interior tip…

As we’re slowly putting together the entire interior of our future house (moving in January 8th, less than a month to go!), I keep on discovering more and more interior and decoration gems. I personally love mixing up luxurious pieces with velvet or gold finishing with more boho-like items with a rotan or linen touch.…

Wishlisted: brass Sissy Boy barcart

Yesterday the boyfriend and I finally signed the deed for our new house, so as from yesterday we’re officially house owners! WHATTTT. Never felt so grown up!!! The countdown unfortunately isn’t over yet: we still have to wait 2,5 months before we can actually move in, so you can imagine my impatience. I’m keeping myself…

My Sissy Boy interior shopping haul

Oops, I did it again. I bought decorative pieces for our future house. But the huge advantage of shopping all of your interior stuff months in advance, is spreading the general cost of course! And I probably would totally regret it if I didn’t get the particular piece that would fit my home perfectly 🙂 So,…

Just ordered: marble shelves!

So it appears that our new home will be entirely covered in marble. Can’t help it… Check out this adorable marble shelf I found on Westwing today! When I discovered it’s only €34 per piece, I promptly ordered 3 of them 🙂 I can imagine them styled together as a hanging open shelf closet, but there are plenty…

Dreaming of a blue velvet couch
Home

If you have studied my last inspiration post for our new house very closely, you might have noticed a few velvet pieces popping up — okay sure, they’re quite obviously present. I already got myself a dark green velvet footstool by Sissy Boy earlier this year, and for our new home in January we’re crushing…

Interior shop crush: Living-In

The interior hunt for our new house has now officially begun — although we literally have NO place to stock all of our purchases. We’ve started to slowly look for and stock up on the bigger pieces such as a table, chairs or a bed. Since we’re moving in in January, it’s obviously to soon to…

Thriftshop finds!

Although it’s still a long wait until the boyfriend and I will finally be moving into our house (January!), we can’t help but look around for furniture and interior accessories… One of our favourite current activities is thrift shopping, and we’re damn good at it 🙂 The bad part is that of course we’re having…

Modern boho perfection
Home

Okay sooooo, this house. If I hadn’t just bought a house, I would totally fall for this beauty based in Amsterdam. And if I had some spare dollaz, that is, because it’s for sale and it of course ain’t cheap. A girl can dream, right, and a girl can also use this as the perfect…

A new home = a new interior!
Home

It’s been two months since the boyfriend and I bumped into our dream – and now future! – house (read the story here), and it’s been pretty hard not to start buying couches, rugs, tableware and even laundry baskets already. The current owners are renovating their new house, so we’ll receive the keys of our new…

Travel

During our two-week Mexico trip (read more here!) we stayed at some pretty beautiful places, but the most impressive one was definitely the AirBnb house we booked in Merida, the biggest city of Yucatan. It looked pretty promising on the photos, but we never would have expected it to be 10 times better in real…

A peek into our apartment / before
Home, Personal

You’ve seen bits of my Antwerp apartment on Instagram (#maisonpielaun) and on the blog before, but I’ve never done an actual home tour! The reason being that we were still busy decorating and updating the whole place. Projects like a home never seem to really finish, as it’s an ongoing thing that changes seasonally or even…

My flea market finds
Home

I’m such a clichĂ© when it comes to Saturdays. I love sleeping late, heading for brunch with friends and browsing through a flea market! On one of the November bank holidays the boyfriend and I did some strolling through town and ended up at a real cool flea market in Antwerp. Since we’re both still busy…

Interior update!

Slowly but surely my new apartment is coming together! A little plant here, a pretty bedside table there and a few instant snapshots on the walls… When I moved into this apartment back in May, I subscribed to a few interior webshops to get daily updates on the best sales because I quickly found my main furniture…
