Moving van

living room - The cat, you and us

Precisely this exact month 4 years ago we moved to our current home.

It seems to me like we have been here for ages, until I start making mental lists about all the things we still have not properly decorated in our home. Maybe those lists are there forever? Hope so! I like to have plans and prospects, specially decoration-wise. I blame (a little) my Pinterest which is daily invaded with the most awesome houses; I confess I almost every day can be caught saying: oooh we need this! or oooh I’ll move here in a heart beat – Dani can testify it’s almost too shamefully true.

It is true there is lot of room to improve in our home, but I love every bit of it. I love all the little things around that remind me of lots (and lots) of happy moments: those nick-nacks from Japan, having favorite illustrations on the walls that make me smile every time that I see them or that side coffee table with the picture making silly faces at our wedding. I’m also excited to know that we will be adding more memories to our shelves and walls and that everything will have an interesting story for us.

I’ve rescued a stop motion video featuring the moving we recorded to let family and friends know that we would love everyone visiting our new home, and I thought that, although is a little old, it would be fun to share! You can see the differences between our current living room in the picture and the video, and also the big differences in us: we were younger, no doubts, and I had much shorter hair, ha!

Put your music on, click play, and let the 4 year time travel begin :) Don’t forget to explain us how the moving to your first home was! Oh! and please forgive the quality, no color correction or anything, it was a very quick video processing.

My favorite parts:
-0:14 Magazine papers in the shape of the future furniture, looking like a decoration crime scene :)
-0:18 Both my mom and I with aprons cleaning all the place, we were the first owners but it definitely needed a facelift.
-0:22 Our laptop on the back shelf playing music non-stop, this is one of the things I most remember.
-0:31 A black cardigan appears on the sofa …
-0:32 … and I put my “I’m so angry” (not real) face because the cardigan was ruining the video! :P
-0:47 a small homage to “It crowd”, a very crazy British comedy.

      We both were quite movie (crazy) fans & collectors, so when we joined our dvd collections together that was kind of waah! :P Since we moved in the collection has not grown so much though, but we still buy our favorite directors movies and tv series (and yep, always looking for sales and such, ha!)

    You guys are so creative to even think to do that. My first thought was…what are those photos on the ground!! I love the explanation :) Also I’ve never really heard of people wearing aprons to clean, well except french maids! Is that a European thing? Maybe we are just very non-stylish in Australia :P Happy four years!!

      Thanks Fiona!!! You are so sweet! Hahahaha your comment about the aprons cracked me up, I pictured myself like a french maid with the hat and I’ve suddenly felt so stuffy xD I’m not sure if it’s an European thing, but definitely is a family thing and I believe quite regular in Spain.

    I love your videos. I downloaded the song from your Save the Date one and listen to it often! :) Part of me wants to move again so I can start the process over in finding new places for our stuff and redecorate! hehe. When Yangkyu and I first moved together to our first place it was our move to NY to Maryland. The day we moved there was a power outage and it was the middle of a very hot summer. There was no elevator and we lived on the 3rd floor! I felt so bad for our moving guys and Piri who we had with us. We couldn’t finish unpacking by the time the sun went down and had take out dinner with a single candle as our only light source and we slept in the middle of the room surrounded by boxes. around 3 am the lights came back on :)

      How happy it makes me to hear that you downloaded our Save the Date song!!!! :) :) The description of your moving sounds so exhausting, with the hot and no elevator…you were very brave to pull it off. The image of the three of you sleeping on the room with boxes around is so cinematographically beautiful!

    Omg! This video is so cute, I don’t care if it’s edited or not, rather I like the feeling!
    Nowadays, our days are spent by looking around for new furniture, books, accessories for our new home too. It’s one of the funniest things, I like the whole process rather than “finding” something new. Especially, I can’t wait to share our “studio” (a place where we design paper crafts) pics soonish :)
    I hope you’ll collect more and more memories that click into your lovely home <3

      Thanks dear!!! I can’t wait to see your new place and studio, I love all your styling and decoration.

    Btw, I forgot to ask… Why the covers of books are all the same? :) Or am I dreaming? :))

      Dani loves a book collection with classic worldwide literature that all share the same white cover, and we have may of those, maybe that’s it :)

  6. Denise ADDS...

    Oh I love what you did with the place!! It’s simple, yet so beautiful! Now I want to move everything just to give it a ‘new place’ feeling, haha ;)

      Thanks Denise! hahaha it’s a great idea to move things around and change decorations to have a fresh feeling of the place :)
