A Sunny Sunday At Mine // First World, Songdo

12 March 2012


Yesterday morning was one of those blissfully peaceful mornings. We ate poached eggs for breakfast with fresh white toast and sat on the couch sipping hot coffee whilst the sun streamed in our apartment windows. I wish every morning was Sunday morning!

I remembered that I promised I would give you a sneak peek of  our new place soon, so I took a few pics to share with you now.
 
 

We're still getting settled into the place. But we're already in love with the views over the park below, something that we really love about Songdo is the abundance of outdoor space.

My fiance and I both have quite similar taste when it comes to furnishing our apartmentHe mainly leaves it up to me though. His only request was that this one was more 'manly' than our last apartment. I guess I'd inadvertently made the last one quite feminine, ooops!

We already had the couch and TV table so I'm planning to base the colour scheme around those things. I prefer a neutral look of creams, black and brown. I've already added some touches of silver I had from our previous apartment (and the flowers) to give it just that hint of girlyness that I love. I'm still looking for a big floor lamp for this room and something to fill the walls but apart from that it's just small trinkets and soft furnishings that it needs. They're something that can easily be accumulated with time though.

At about 3pm we started to feel guilty for not doing anything! So, just to keep our consciences clear, we got ready and headed out for a walk in the park. We'd been deceived by the blue skies though, it was minus five degrees centigrade! We weren't dressed for that so the walk got put on hold and we headed for coffee instead. Not very exciting but still a perfect relaxing Sunday for me.

What's your perfect Sunday like?

  4. I love what you've done with the place - those massive windows are amazing!

    I'd probably need a small room to fill with my clutter though, in order to keep the living room so minimalistic and chic! :p

    1. At first I completely loved it, then the novelty wore off after about a year and a half and I started to miss home quite a bit. Now I've been here almost three years and I know a lot more that helps with living here (places to shop/eat/see, the culture etc) and so once again I love it. Life is pretty good for me here :)

      You should come for one year, most people who do really enjoy it. It is a fascinating country and very different to most other countries Ive visited!

  37. Thank your for your nice comment!


    That first picture is simply amazing, I really like this kind of style - chic, clean and elegant. And at the same time the colour palette is not too cold so that it is still made for actually living and not just looking (as I find are so many of those over-designes /polished interieurs!)
