I've been living in a tiny studio in the center of Utrecht (The Netherlands) for almost half a year now. Wow, time flies. It's 23 square meters, a little attic studio in a renovated building next to a charming park in Utrecht. Nine studios have been built into the building, which once was a regular, but large, house for one family.
I loved this one in particular because it has a sleeping nook. Since all the studio's consists of one room only, it's wonderful not having a bed in my living room, but upstairs. Next to that, the sleeping nook is the perfect hide-away. Stuffed with pillows, fairy lights, cozy blankets and my e-reader, DS and in many cases - my sweetheart - it's the perfect place to retreat to after a long day. We can watch movies on my laptop there as well.
Of course, we'd miss coffee and breakfast on bed, so we tend to juggle a serving tray, cups and coffee and toast up the ladder. It works quite well I must say!
It's true that I do miss a little storage room, I have none except for my wardrobe, the kitchen and the hipster cases my sweet stores his clothes in. Keeping it tidy is hard, with laundry drying everywhere and new stuff coming in the house, so I try to give stuff away and clean and purge where I can.
Still, I can't imagine a lovelier place to stay for now. My perfect little hide-away.
