Daydreaming ... about pretty apartmentsDecember 07, 2012
In a time when snow falls and the inner romanticist of me comes up, I quickly fade into daydreaming. That's what I have been doing the past two days now. We have a thick layer of that pretty white snow for a couple of days now and it seems that it won't be gone for a while. The heater is on, a cup of cinnamon tea with apple in my hand, candles burning, and softly in the background old Christmas tunes from the '30s are playing from my 1930s radio.
When I searched the internet for interesting things to feed my 1930s and '40s obsession with, I came across a most marvelous photo of a beautiful apartment. My dream apartment. It shows only a little part of a room, but definitely enough that it would make me pack my stuff and move into it immediately. Nowadays I am -together with Ben- on a quest to find plenty of old stuff to fill our upcoming house in Zutphen (the Netherlands) with.
Such an apartment, ofcourse, asks for an exorbitant dressing room ala Jean Harlow's.
