I moved into my flat last October (4 months ago!), but I never felt really settled. There was just not enough room/storage for all my stuff (books and kitchen utensils, mainly) and it was freaking me out: I never found anything and the space looked so cluttered. I do have some built-in closets, but I want things like books and magazines on display and stuff for the college easily accessible. I knew that the solution were shelves, but I never found the time to pay Ikea a visit – until last monday. My dad was in town and together with my brother (who has a car), we bought some Billys and set them up.

The difference! Everything has its own space now, nothing lies on the floor anymore. It is not yet finished, I still need to rearrange some things. but it’s a good start! I also realized that I have a lot of room for more books and dvds now, it’s basically begging to be filled… I also want to add some plants onto the top of the shelves, I have my eye on these. And hang up some pictures – I just have to decide on a layout. My “Desolation of Smaug” poster is already up, it hides the ugly back of the larger shelf.

So my favourite thing this week was definitely making my surroundings cozier and cleaning my space up. Now that everything (inculding my desk) is clutter-free, I can solely focus on stuff for college: Don’t expect more than one post next week, I’m just super busy right now. But there is light at the end of the tunnel! :) After friday, things should calm down a bit….
