I’ve moved out.
I’ve moved to Aarhus (which is another city in Denmark about 300 km from Copenhagen). And I’ve started at Aarhus School of Architecture.
So for the past 2 weeks I’ve been moving, starting school and finding a place to live (in that order!). That is also why I’ve been MIA from the blog the past two weeks. I didn’t have my camera here and I wasn’t cool enough to have posts planned… Dumb. I know.
But now I’ve moved in, got my stuff and settled. I’m slowly getting to know my why around here. I thought I’d share with you all how my room looks now in this post. And then I’ll probably be doing a lot of posts on how I find Aarhus in the near future so keep an eye out for those too.
My new room
I want to show you all my new room. I really like how it turned out and I hope I’ll be able to keep it clean (not my best skill while living with my parents).
This is the room. When you walk in the room you’ll see my bed and desk area. There is also a decent size closet in the room.
I’ve created this cosy little corner that I’m very pleased with. It’s perfect to use for reading books or blogs. Way better than sitting on the bed as I used to. I think my back appreciates that.
Of cause you need some pretty magazines next to the reading nook. Here I have mainly architectural magazines, some which are actually the “school paper” Kårk. The framed picture is a collage I got 4 or 5 years ago from some very dear friends of us as little kids.
I also have this shelf with pictures and random stuff. The mirror helps reflect light in the room since there is only one window. So even though the room is quite bright I still think using things such as decorative mirrors help lighten it up even more.
I have this wooden hand on my desk from HAY. I keep it with my little posture guide figure man. I don’t really use it for references when I draw, but hands fascinate me so I like having it on my desk.
I also use my desk for applying make-up and have bought the ALEX draws from IKEA to store all my beauty related stuff. When I lived at home I used to store most of it in a basket and that always overflowed so I knew I need another system. I really like this so far the draws are really convenient and holds a butt load of shit.
The glass containers on top are from Louise Roe and I’m thinking of using them for cotton pads and cotton swaps. I keep my jewelry in the bonboniere (the white vase-with-a-lid thingy) and the two flat glass containers. So far this is working great. I’ll keep you posted if that changes.
There was already a bunch of hooks when I moved in so I just hung things on them immediately. And yes that is the painting I showed me starting on in a old old post. It has yet to be finished… BUT I WILL FINISH IT I PROMIS!
I did how ever finish this painting which was my final exam project. The painting is about love if you hadn’t figured that one out. I tried to paint something that could portray many different kinds of love, not just the traditional male-female love all though I think that is many peoples first thought when looking at it.
This is one of my favorite pillows. It’s from a company that was called By Nord. The brand unfortunately closed but I did manage to get this pillow of a polar bear snout and I LOVE IT
In the window I keep more bric brac that have no real purpose than to make me happy. The pink thing is a Hoptimist (probably taken from the word optimist but it also “hops”). A very danish thing to have. I also have a fake plant that I someday hope to replace with a real one and a scented candle from rituals. I’m pretty sure it’s the Indian Rose one that I have. I haven’t had the chance to light it yet, because I don’t have any matches or a lighter. A thing on my to buy list for sure!
About my new school…
Would you want to see what I’m working on at school? Aarhus school of Architecture is very different from other universities in many ways. So if you’d be interested in seeing what projects we are working on let me know.
