Inspiration and beautiful things

When we arrived with our five suitcases, our house here was empty. The necessities like mattresses, bedsheets, a few cooking pots and dishes were on the top of our shopping list. Afterwards we were left with more time for the rest. That’s when we   rummaged through flea markets and also visited the websites of our favorite stores (west elm and Anthropologies).

If we wouldn’t have to watch our budget as closely, we would have bought this bed from west elm.

The lamps that were hanging above our dining table in Switzerland also came from west elm.

I was on the search for lamps for a long time. In an issue from covet garden  (a brilliant online magazine) I finally found them. I ordered them the same night and have never regretted buying them. The delivery to Switzerland worked perfectly.

From Anthropologies I ordered knobs for the wardrobes. That’s a small investment with a great effect. More to that when the kids rooms are done…


Als wir hier ankamen, mit unseren 5 Koffern, stand unser Häuschen leer. Die notwendigsten Dinge wie Matratzen, Bettwäsche, ein paar Kochtöpfe und Geschirr standen zuoberst auf unserer Einkaufsliste. Danach konnten wir uns für den Rest ein bisschen mehr Zeit lassen. So haben wir in den Brockenstuben gestöbert, aber auch mal die Webseiten einiger unserer Lieblingsläden (west elm und Anthropologie) durchgeschaut.

Wenn wir nicht so fest auf unser Budget achten müssten, würde ich mir dieses Bett von west elm kaufen.

Von west elm stammten auch die Lampen, welche über unserem Esstisch in der Schweiz hingen.

Ich war lange Zeit auf der Suche nach Lampen. In einer Ausgabe von covet garden (das ist ein brillantes Online-Magazin) kamen sie vor und ich habe sie noch am gleichen Abend bestellt und es nie bereut. Die Lieferung in die Schweiz war einwandfrei.

Bei Anthropologie haben wir Knöpfe für die Schränke bestellt. Das ist eine kleine Investition mit grosser Wirkung. Mehr dazu, wenn wir mit den Kinderzimmern fertig sind….

    Yаhoo’s front page and see how they create article titles to get viewеrs to
    click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get peoρle iterested about whаt you’ve written. In my օpinion, it would
    make your blog a little livеlier.
