Moving in together for the first time. As I’ve implied in the last post, here comes the good news: My boyfriend and I are finally moving in together for the first time properly. The topic ‘moving in together as couple’ is no problem for us as we’ve already experiences all stages of living together and apart – from living together in a flat share, long-distance relationship, living together over the summer and travelling together for a whole month meaning being together 24/7. I think you put your relationship to the proof the best when travelling together for a long time together. But that is another topic!

Happily our flat search in Munich went quicker than expected and we found our apartment within a week – looked up announces on Monday, went on visits on Wednesday, signed the contract on Friday. We’ve heard that people were looking such a long time for flats. We definitely had the luck of the devil!

I hope that the move goes smoothly. But choosing furniture together isn’t easy when two tastes come together. If it was up to me I would keep all the furniture clean in white and add decoration. My boyfriend is the opposite and finds white quite boring. Compromises have to be made but I am sure that our flat will be lovely.

Of course, when living together you can share the costs and we indulged ourselves with a few more expensive items. On top of our list were:

  1. A NEW DINING AREA. My boyfriend hates IKEA! Apart from our wardrobe we tried to avoid buying stuff there. We’d been checking a lot of online shops as we were looking for some unique and stylish dining chairs. Regarding the table we couldn’t really decide but chose this great model from Hoeffner. It was the only one with a great look, not too large but the most extendable. These days material mixes are great and I am curious to see how the dining chairs come together with the light wood.
  2. A NEW MATTRESS. Funnily, without even knowing that I was moving to a new place a friend from back home told me about these great mattresses from DreamZebra. The good thing is that there is no need for a bedstead and steel frame (so the price is nearly the same when buying a new bed). I will let you know how good we’ll sleep on it.
  3. SERVING CART. Finally we’ll have enough space to place a lovely serving cart in our living room. I am still searching a nice model. Probably I’ll do a DIY since it is so hard to find one in gold.
  4. BEDSIDE LAMPS. Unfortunately, I missed buying two of these lovely pineapple lamps from Zara. Anyone got them and selling two (or one?!) to me?

We still need:

  • A new wardrobe
  • a big carpet for the living area
  • Two bedside tables
  • A chest of drawers for the entrance
  • laundry basket
  • bookshelves
  • shelves for the kitchen

I can’t wait to show you more!

Have a wonderful day!

    Oh wie schön- und aufregend! Dann hoffe ich, dass der Umzug schnell vonstatten geht und ihr es euch ganz bald in der neuen Wohnung gemütlich machen könnt :)
    Ist dein Freund eigtl Franzose oder war er ebenfalls Erasmusstudent, als ihr euch in Paris kennen gelernt habt?

    Es gibt einfach nichts Schöneres , als eine neue Wohnung einzurichten! Ich bin letztes Jahr mit meinem Freund zusammengezogen, da haben wir auch einen gemeinsamen Stil gefunden und diesen umgesetzt. Die Stühle gefallen mir sehr, neue Esszimmerstühle stehen nämlich ganz oben auf meiner Interior-Wunschliste… Ich freue mich schon auf die Bilder von eurer eingerichteten Wohnung♥

    Liebe Grüße
