We’ve been in our little flat for over three months now and it really feels like home. Because we moved into an unfurnished place, for me it was important to make it homely with little ornaments so I treated myself with things like candles, plants, and prints. Plus I shipped over a few things from the UK that I knew would instantly make it feel like home to me.
I bought Alex the record player for his birthday as he’s building up a record collection that he couldn’t previously play. I didn’t originally want to put it on display but then I bought the little three-legged table in a warehouse sale and one morning the record player just somehow appeared there. Now I love it and we end up listening to scratchy old tunes whilst we’re cooking most evenings.
We definitely have a bit of work to do with pulling it together as it’s still not perfect. Heck, we still don’t have a bed (I never use the word heck in real life but it just worked here). Our latest project is opening our spare room as an Airbnb which I *think* will be fun. We stayed in one in Adelaide where the hosts lived there, and as it was a weekend city break we hardly spent anytime in the apartment. I’m hoping that that’s how it will work! Has anyone had any experience with hosting an Airbnb? x
