Favorite corners in our home

favorite corners in our home - ByMeryl

It’s been about a year since I moved to Utrecht into my first real apartment. It was the perfect opportunity for my Pinterest boards to come to live and to flood my blog with interior post.

I do think that taking a bit more time, worked out so much better for us. Instead of impulse buying, we bought items that we really liked and I love our place so much. A good reason to share some of my favorite corners in our home, while we are waiting for the final items to arrive.

In January however I found myself drawn to the simple design of Veja sneakers and when I found out how sustainable they were, I decided that these sneakers would be a new addition to my spring wardrobe.

Now I don’t tend to read newsletters but my commute to work and the stunning artwork won me over. I watched a tutorial with the new eye colour creams and was seriously impressed. Later that week I was in a treat yourself kind of mood and decided to pick up two of the three new eye colour creams.
