A Few Pictures of Our Home

Today I was working from home, so I took a few pictures when the sun was up.

The living room
The living room hosts our sofa, arm chairs, dining table, the TV and the bookshelf. There's also a huge carpet for the cats to play on, they like to jump after toys more when on carpet than on bare floor.

A better picture of the bookshelf. It's two Ikea Expedit units piled on top of each other.

The bookshelf is great! We used to have many cheap dark wood imitation shelves that were also quite low and always full. This one is full also, and there's books up to three rows deep in it, but there was still room for all our PC games and some plushies.

The wallpaper
The wallpaper is actually matte black with a glossy black pattern. It's not pitch black, it leans toward warm dark grey and comes out brownish in pictures. It was a nightmare to get it on the wall, but now that it's done, it's just perfect.

Another shot of the pattern and a Block lamp.


Lights on the living room window sill and a small frame with the wallpaper
my old flat had.

Mörkö enjoying the sofa.

Another sofa corner.

The bedroom
I didn't have the heart to make the bed when I got up, because Möttönen and Nivek were sleeping under the covers. Thus it was quite messy and I didn't take other pictures than this one, where the kitties had moved on to their favourite spot: on the bed and next to the radiator.

The study
The study is still a bit of a mess, as you can probably see from the picture ;P The are no curtains but at least I have a corner of the table all to myself. One day there will be space and every item will have its own place!

To finish off, here's a few pet pictures!

Sleepy kitties.

Orchid's are pets, right? Mine is still blooming!

    1. Thank you! The cats are also excellent for heating under the covers, I sometimes even get too hot in the mornings when three kitties all want to be next to me!

  2. The wallpaper looks wonderful - you did a really nice job! And I love the turquoise and red you've used together - never in a million years would I have thought to use that combination, but it looks amazing!

    Awwww - kitties next to the radiator ... :D

    1. Thank you! The turquoise and red combination was a lucky coincidence, I had the cushions and curtains earlier and the perfect sofa just happened to be red. I was very happy that they work so well together!
