Our New Apartment!

Today I’ve been together with Daniel for 3 years. It’s really odd, sometimes I feel like we meet yesterday and other days I feel like I’ve known him my whole life. For the last 6 months we have been looking around for apartments, I feel like we’ve been everywhere. Renting is expensive in Oslo and it feels like a waste of money even though we have really enjoyed our old flat. This summer we finally came across an apartment we could afford that meet our expectations. So we celebrated 3 years together by getting the keys to our new home today! It feels amazing, but at the same time it’s hard to grasp that I actually own my own place. It’s right in the city center and best of all.. it has a sunny garden!

The apartment is from 2008, so it is in good shape but needs a layer of paint. We went straight to the store and bought supplies and paint this evening. So we might just go all in and start tomorrow. I can’t wait to spend the next months nesting and coming up with cool ideas.

So if you’re looking for interior, renovation and DIY inspo, this is it!

Uhm.. Hello?

My name is Tonje. My work is in aviation and my spare time consists of creative outbursts with a lot of Netflix and chill in between. I like to bury myself in creative projects, imaginary worlds and loose track of time and place. I call that state Cloud Eibon (long story). I believe in sharing your passion or whatever makes you happy, however small, because if you never find the time to do happy, you are most certainly missing the point.

I come from a tiny fjord along the Norwegian west-coast with about one thousand inhabitants. I got restless at a young age and I’ve lived in many cities, studied illustration in England and backpacked in South East Asia. I am currently living in Oslo with my fiancee and bestfriend Daniel. Who also got a son named Leo that stays with us at weekends and holidays. Like I needed an excuse to spend my afternoon in pillow castles; coloring and blowing bubbles. I call that time well spent!

My heart has always been set on traveling. I have always been intrigued by Asia and the more abundant locations, but currently my job lets me explore Europe and I can’t say no to that!

This is my creative space to share my projects and log my journeys. My intentions are simple; I hope you find something here that inspires you or just make you smile.

With love and some freakin unicorn dust,
Tonje
