HOME TOUR WITH IKEA
I was contacted by the lovely Helen from IKEA Family Live in autumn last year to share a few photos of my home on their blog. The article is now live and can be found here in French (DE here and IT here). The text I submitted has been quite radically modified in order to highlight the products on show but I’m hugely grateful for the opportunity to share my home.
Like most young people over here in Switzerland, 99% of the furniture in the apartment came from IKEA as it’s one of the few affordable furniture stores. That made it easy to shoot a few of their pieces.
Here’s a little tour of the apartment I lived in up until the end of last year – starting with the kitchen!
The fruit basket I got at a local flea market for just 10 CHF.
I love these hanging planters which fit the plants perfectly. All we did was attach a bit of string along the top of the window and lead the plants along it. As they were right by the window they got plenty of light and grew really well.
Next, is a snoop into a very girly bedroom where D had bought me a dressing table which was the catalyst for an almost all white bedroom – whoops!
I personalised the chest of drawers with little colourful drawer knobs that I bought at a flea market in Berlin.
Decorating this space was definitely one of my favourites. I got to print out photos from a girly trip to Zurich, a shot of these ginger cupcakes I made and a shot of me and my mama from our trip to Sardinia. I love making use of the masses of photos I have on my computer.
I printed these at Copy Quick in Lausanne (Place Pépinet 1, 1003 Lausanne). All you’ve got to do is PDF them to the right size and make sure to have high quality photos and they will help you in store!

That’s the end of the tour – I can assure you that it wasn’t always this tidy and often would get very messy during baking frenzies and DIY weekends! The shots of the dining room and living room aren’t in here are we hadn’t finished decorating them at the time.
These photos were taken in Autumn last year and lots has changed since. I’ve actually moved out of my flat with D and although things are over, looking back at these photos only brings back very fond memories and I’m grateful for the good times we spent in our lovely home. Leaving Lua has to be one of the hardest things I have ever done but I know she’s spoilt with love and cuddles and in the best hands possible.
