Dream flats

Monday, March 21, 2011

 Why can't I find a flat like this?
Or this?!

The flat hunt is going ok - a little discouraging when we find the "perfect" one and they don't allow little Bama's.  On the other hand, I am savoring the time we have left in our little village by the lake (especially now that it's spring and summer) - so feeling peaceful about it all at the moment.

Dreamy! Good luck with the flat search, maybe the perfect place will pop up soon!

Cupcake said...

Oh I know looking for a place to live takes time. I swear we saw over 50 houses before we bought this one. Argh! Good luck!

No little Bama's?! I'd love a flat like that too. Husband wants to buy a warehouse in Seattle and I'm totally on board!

Josie said...

I LOVE these -- especially the second one. The bookshelves are amazing!

You will and it will be wonderful!

I love watching international house hunters on HGTV. I have a feeling ..no matter where I lived..once we've lived in it...I'm not sure anyone else would want to know how messy my family is.

lucy and sarah said...

Stephanie said...

They are really dreamy.

Claire said...

Brittany H. said...

Wooouu! Those spaces are amazing! Just look at that bookcase! ..Makes my dinky apartment feel really small.

Happy day! Great post, thanks for sharing.

Jamie said...

I'm dying over the bookshelves in that second photo - dreamy! You'll find that perfect place, I'm sure it is just around the corner.

I don't know from where the first one is, I'm guessing NY, but the second one is in Stockholm:)

Valerie said...

These are so cool! I want to live there! I hope you find one just like these soon!

Marissa said...

That second place is gorgeous. I want it!

Stephany said...

Oh, don't we wish? :)

It's so hard finding a new place, especially finding pet-friendly ones! It seems more and more places are going pet-UNFRIENDLY...or else charging a crazy pet fee!

Good luck on your search!

Tricia said...

The bookshelves! SWOON! I love them!

Punctuation Mark said...

good luck with the hunt... it could be quite exhausting!

Living like Laree said...

Mary Lou said...

Both are beautiful! You will find one you love, I just know it.

E said...

So many beautiful places out there...if I only had the money to afford them. Can't wait to see shots of where you end up.

Julie Khuu said...

That window wall is amazing...Especially with a downtown skyline to throw the best parties or simply stay in with a nice glass of wine and a homemade dinner. Love these shots...makes me dream of the day I can own a place like this :D

Thanks for sharing!

Eva @ Four Leaf Clover said...

Ah, right... that was a problem we had with finding a place too, the cats! If I understood correctly by "little Bama's". These places are amazing! I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Amy said...

Hi Krystal! Thank you for visiting my blog and writing such a kind comment. I'm so glad to have support from the online community :)

I really like your blog, and am now a follower! I've been house hunting lately, for a place closer to my family, instead of a seven hour drive, and the places you've showed are going to be a part of my inspiration board for the perfect house!

Cheers.

Mrs. Parker said...

I'm in love with that 2nd flat!
Best of luck in the hunt!

Signe said...

Oh wow, the windows in flat nr.1 is amazing! I would not mind living there for sure :)

Diana said...

I love all those shelves. I could put so much junk on them!

And screw those places that won't take a little Bama! What losers. They don't know how much cuteness they're missing!

Roxy Heart said...

What a great blog! Love these photos. I want a house like that!
Want to follow each other?

Kelle Dame said...

I know how you feel. We had a hard time finding an apartment back in the day that would allow our little supervisor. The right one will show up :) Maybe it will have some triangles too!
Have a great week!

Jess said...

how amazing are those shelves in that 2nd picture! Starting to imagine all of the things I would put on them...

Kavery said...

House hunting takes a lot of time but when you find the perfect one it's all worth it! A bit like finding the perfect guy :)

Molly said...

Ooooooooooooooo, I want the top one too. I'll arm wrestle you for it.

Way to be patient and find the right one for your whole family! It's out there waiting for you, I'm sure.


Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

Melisande said...

those windows are gorgeous. i would just sit and read and look out the windows all day!

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

oh girl, i totally understand your dilemma with the pet policies on a lot of places. dag! makes me sad b/c for us peeps who know how to take care of our fur babies it's just not fair. i think the spoilers have been the folks allowing their pets to run rampant and make messes. it's too bad but hope you find the perfect digs soon!

those ones are to die for, so spacious and dreamy. ♥

vojacque said...

i have the same image of the first flat saved under 'places i love', too! ♥

Charlotte said...

If you lived in any of these places, I would move myself in.

Jenny said...

wow, those are awesome!!! Good luck with your search. apartment hunting kinda stinks....

Kristin said...

Those windows...Totally swoonworthy!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Oh either would do very nicely for me too! Good luck. Hope u find something perfect soon :) xoxo

katie said...

Emily Jane said...

OMG, nicest places I have EVER seen!!

Chuzai Living said...

That is beautiful. We could never afford anything like that, but I love looking at the photos!! I hope you can find the perfect flat for you!! Good luck!

Diana said...

Wow I love that one with the built in shelves. Good luck on your hunt. Will it still be in Switzerland?

this is me. said...

love the first one. you can find those easily, it's the price that's hard to swallow (and for your, it must be BAMA proof). good luck, i'm excited to see your new crib! :)

this is me. said...

p.s. the triangles are back!

Christina said...

Places like that exist?! Ha...gorgeous.

J.J. said...

If I don't need a ladder for my future bookshelves, then I just don't want to live there.

Lisa Griffin said...

what is it with the crazies that don't allow dogs? especially when they meet our little darlings? i think it's so absurd but just breathe and you will find a lovely home!

Emma said...

Oh wow those apartments are fab......Yep you are better off taking your time & finding the perfect spot for you both & Bama of course! ;)

brittany said...

oh, i can't believe any place would say no to a little bama! i hate no animals allowed rules. you'll find the right place, though! and bama will be a happy little baby :) xoxo

Kirsty said...

Gorgeous! Who doesn't want to live in a flat like that? Beautiful.

Dancing Branflake said...

Gorgeous! This seriously makes me crave a big city like none else (well, maybe food trucks.)

ag. said...

Oh that view!! Finding that perfect place can be oh so hard. GOOD LUCK!

Pilar said...

Oooh beautiful spaces, good luck with apartment hunting... it can be tough!

heck, I would like to move into a flat like that!

Nnenna said...

These flats are so gorgeous! Good luck with your own flat hunting! :)

bobbi said...

I hate when they don't allow pets in buildings. It's pointless. If it's a matter of good manners and behaviour I know a number of people that shouldn't be allowed in buildings too!!

Fashion Cappuccino said...

Oh Man! They're so dreamy! I would love to live in one of those flats! I would never leave! xoxoxoo

Nicomi "Nix" Turner said...

Having lived in a loft for the past two years, I will say it will be odd to live in a house again. You can't beat open spaces and vaulted ceilings.
Great images! I love the windows in the first.

modanista junkie said...

Looks so peaceful. I'm a huge book reader and I would die for a book shelf as big as the one on the 2nd photo.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

Hazel said...

Bella Bheag said...

Lots of choice if you have lots of francs! Still, standards are usually pretty high in the rental sector aren't they? Thanks for your comment. BB

Annie said...

seriously, those are AMAZING!!! I hope you find something perfect soon.. in the meantime, I'm so glad you're not stressed about it :)

thingsIlove said...

SO BEAUTIFUL!!

Ooh, I'm a bit out of the loop... where are you off to? That first flat in particular looks amazing... I'm all about big windows and lots of them! I'll be flat hunting myself soon, which is a grumpy-inducing thought. London's a nightmare...

Guisela said...

Hey Crystal! Good luck on finding your little nest! BTW Love the first one, lots of windows more light, :P
