10 easy steps to change your entire home

ten steps in making your home the place you want it to be:

1. walk around your home and take pictures, you`ll get the before-and-after-picture-experience

2. take a weekend to declutter, don`t forget the closets

3. organize your storage: buy transparent plastic boxes and label them, stock them in shelves

4. make a plan on what you want to change in each room. find out what you want and need from each room. what function it has.
for example the hallway: if it`s unorganized, floating with clutter: buy a shoe shelf and a shoe closet, if it`s dark and cold: paint it in a light and slightly warm tone, install more lighting, get plants

                            before                                                                         after

5. get started one room at a time: start with the room that needs the least work

6. buy everything you need during the week, renovate on the weekend

7. warn your family;)

8. do the changes to the rooms, one at a time. do it in your own pace. it might take you a year or it might take you a month
9. make the final touches. take your after-pictures

10. have a party and show off your new home. show then the before pictures and enjoy!

nicole`s daily train trip

another week has past with learning how to sell kitchens. have to admit that it was quite an exhausting week. but after work yesterday i just went to bed and slept 13 hours straight. so.
now i feel better and just relaxed the whole day with my two men at home.

fall is progressing more and more. i got of the train one morning to take pictures of the view like i promised you. the pictures are taken from a trainstation. Would be nice to live there and see this view first thing in the morning.
so this is what i see twice a day! lucky me :D

have a good week while i keep selling kitchens;)

an old house

hi again!
the blog has become a weekly thing since my life is so crazy busy...
we are enjoying the most beautiful (cold) but sunny fall weather. i love it. fall is my favourite season of all:) maybe because i`m born there.
yesterday we were at a viewing for an old house, we really need something bigger. and since the cars were set on fire in my neighborhood i want to move even more. problem is that the move was scheduled for 2012 and not now.
i can only give you a little peek of the house we looked at. we liked it quite good. it`s from 1912 and doesn`t look very good right now. needs a lot of work. but it seemes that the structure is ok.
is that a good idea?
