It’s been a while (almost one year, actually!) since my last post here.
In these months many things happened: I decided to move from Milan to Como, by the lake, looked for a new place, found it, moved and worked a lot in the meanwhile. I’ve also been lucky enough to travel a bit during these months: I visited Miami twice, I’ve been to Texas (Dallas and Grapevine)…not bad at all!
Finding a new home has been pretty hard but very exciting at the same time! I was born and raised in Milan but at some point I really felt the need to move to another place, the big city was not for me anymore.
When I started looking for a new place, I made a whishlist and guess what? I found a home home report that meets –almost- all of my wishlist items! , but has turned in to the most relaxing and beautiful place we’ve ever lived.The wishlist I made when I started looking for a new place included:
– Pets allowed!!!
– Old/historic building
– Close to center but quite
– Last/final floor apartment
– Two/three bedroom
– Wooden floors
– Close to the lake
What I found:
– pets are welcome! yay!
– early twentieth century building
– very bright 2 bedroom apartment
– only 2 minutes walking distance to historic center and lakeside
– last/final floor of three
– not a terrace but a cute balcony
– wooden floor and old blue mosaic in the bathroom
– and…gorgeous view!!!
I have to say I’m really happy with this new house! We had to buy almost everything new, from kitchen to bedrooms, and it’s taking a while to complete all the works, but…step by step!
Here’s a sneak-peek, I’ll post more pics soon!
Messy hallway. Look at the old radiator, isn’t it just beautiful? I so love them!
View from one of the windows: there are two huge cedars of Lebanon facing our house!
And this is the gorgeous lake, a couple of minutes’ walking distance from the house.
