Our New Apartment

After deciding to stay in Beijing for a little longer, we knew we wanted to move apartments. We're lucky that my company provides accommodation, but we currently pay a little extra for our apartment and just don't love it enough to justify it. We got a great little deal on our new apartment and I just love it.


Our new apartment is much smaller but I love it so much. It's a brand new build just across the road from where we used to live, so it's still in a great location but half the price, meaning we actually profit from it and can save up money (which we absolutely suck at)

It's a mezzanine which is much smaller than our previous apartment, containing a dining area, living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. It feels so much more homely though and I love that I have to go upstairs to go to bed. It's the small things in life that make me happy.

There are 2 random areas that are up a level and look like little cubbies. We spent ages decided what to do with them and decided that Paul will take one as his X-Box/man space and I will take the other as my girly make-up and beauty area. This excites me way more than it should. I'm looking forward to having my own space that I can prettify up.





We don't officially move in until 17th March but have already started to move our things over. I'm looking forward to getting settled in there and making it my own.

If you have any decor tips, let me know :-)
