This apartment melts my heart. The parquet flooring is what does me in.

P.S Thank you to Ana from Live and Enliven Designs for my new header!! I finally gave it up to the professionals =) She was amazing to work with and SO patient (which is a good thing because I might win the pickiest client award!). I'd definitely encourage you to check out her work, I love everything she touches. Thanks ana!

P.S.S.   Today I did a guest post about me and moving to Switzerland over at Simply Colette if you want to check it out.
We instantly bonded because Switzerland happens to be one of her favorite places and she does photography getaways here! Also, she was just in London for the royal wedding and shared some awesome pictures...she's such a cool girl :)

Love the simplicity of the decor and the low lamp in the living room.
Your header is very nice. It features the Swiss mountains which is very nice.
Hope you having a great day!

I love the apartment, love it. I could never live in it though, I'm much too messy.

And the house in your post below is such a wonderful idea, what a good way to bring a community together.

I read your interview, that's so cool that you guys just packed up and moved! I never realised it was so difficult to take animals though, thanks for the heads up :)
