I’ve been bursting at the seams to tell you: we signed a lease on a Danish apartment! Early last week we stumbled upon a lovely, sunny unit in Copenhagen’s sweet Valby neighborhood and tomorrow we pick up the keys. It’s ridiculously roomy (1,200 square feet…!) and has a proper dining room with the prettiest french doors opening to the living room (see above). Across the street is a gorgeous green park called Søndermarken where lots of dogs play—I think Alfred will love it! I can’t wait to move in tomorrow and begin decorating. I’ll be sharing the process here on the blog as well as on Pinterest and Instagram! Stay tuned!
