COLLECTION_ small homes

collection tiny homes via au pays des merveilles

As I’ve mentioned a couple of times before, I’ve finally moved into a place of my own this year.  After sharing a house with others for many years,I felt it was time to take the plunge and get my own apartment, so that’s what I did!  As of January, I’ve been living in a small studio in Antwerp and I’m totally thrilled about it.  Moving into a place of my own for the first time, also meant that I needed quite a few new items of furniture to turn this studio into my dream appartment.    With a little help from Ikea I’ve been trying to do exactly that, and this month I’ll be sharing the process on the blog.  Today I wanted to show a few inspirational images for small homes.  My studio is not big, nor does it have a separate bedroom, so it’s not that easy to achieve the rather minimal look that I adore, while still finding space for all my things.  I’ve lined up a few images of studio apartments that manage to combine different functions in one space while still looking clean (1 – 2 – 6 – 8 – 9) and others (3 – 4 – 5 – 7) that represent that clean look with a bohemian touch that I’d love to achieve.  Be sure to check back here next week for the next post in this ikea x au pays des merveilles project!
