It’s almost time for me to leave Fabric Farms Interiors. The house here is packed up and sold and our few household items are winging their way across the ocean as I write.
On the bright side, here are pictures of the house we found, beating out at least 5 other house seekers. Finding a house or an apartment in Munich is definitely an endurance race, with a large dollop of luck on the side. We managed to snag a duplex with a garage!
Here’s a picture of the back.
We have a tiny garden, with an even tinier patio. One of the most exciting things for our family of 4 is that we have 2.5 baths just like we did in the US. Many of the houses we looked at had 1 or 1.5 baths…with 2 teenagers in the house, I was foreseeing much screaming of “Get Out of the Bathroom, NOW!” Fortunately, we – and the neighbors – will be spared that. Probably.
Now the really exciting part: my chairs are done! Here’s the first one:
And I’m thinking I’m going to put them in my “Winter Garden” – it’s kind of a sunroom extension to the living room.
|Winter Garden and Living/Eating Area|
The house will be completely unfurnished when we move in so you have to use your imagination a little bit. I’m thinking a sofa and the 2 chairs in the living area/winter garden. Something like this but I’ll have to change out those pillows stat. Ugh – what will I do without Fabric Farms fabric selection?!?
Fortunately I’m a forward planning kind of girl and I’m thinking ahead…
|Swavelle Millcreek Chavi Gold|
This pretty 100% cotton print from Swavelle Millcreek will brighten the brown with style to spare. Plus it complements the burnt orange of the chairs AND the yellow walls. Win-Win! Those are big back pillows so I’m thinking 2-3 yards should be enough. Note to self: buy a sewing machine as soon as possible!
Auf Wiedersehen! Bis Bald (see you soon)!
