– Anzeige/ad – Brands mentioned –Hello again! As I wrote yesterday I wanted to show you the updates we did last week. My mum and sister came to visit and since we were 4 people working in the apartment we managed to do quite a lot! It’s small things but they make such a difference, Casa cozy is really starting to look like a home and I love it <3

So first thing is the walls, as you know we used Kalklitir on the main bedroom wall, sofa wall and stucco on the kitchen wall, but we fell so in love with it all that we decided to do all the walls in Kalklitir! It really gives a nice finish on the walls, and since we were supposed to have them all white and bright we decided to go for a very light color but still visible. They recommended us to use a color called Carrera which is very light but with some grey pigments to tone down the natural lime color which is normally a bit warm. It’s always hard to catch the exact color on pictures, but its beautiful! I already painted all the walls in the kitchen/living room area, which you can see above around the windows and below around the doors. The next weeks, whenever we have time, I will paint the rest of the walls in the other room. I think it brought on some extra depth into the apartment and a bit more life instead of completely white. A little reminder that the 25% discount still stands with the code “mikutas25” until Sunday 27th Oct midnight on Kalklitir <3

So what did the others do? Well they went all in with painting all the windows and door frames and most of the white boards on the bottom of the walls! Now they look so clean and white and beautiful, such a change from before when they were a bit yellowish/old looking :)

Apart from that my mum got beautiful flowers and decorated the balcony, such a mum move <3 Why didn’t I even think of that before? It makes renovating so much more fun! Awww! I really loved having them here those days!

There are still stuff to do, like building a kitchen, a bathroom, putting on the plugs, etc etc. But we don’t have time for that right now because on Sunday we already move over our stuff! It has to be so soon because next week we are busy with other work, so it will be a bit of a chaos in the apartment but it will be fine! At least it’s liveable <3

Have a wonderful weekend! Lots of love xx Mikuta

beautiful walls! What painting technique did you use on the walls? We are thinking Carrera or Calce in our dining room…and whether we should use the X technique or the up and down thing. ;D

Hello Miikon! I actually did a bit of both in the end, but mostly up and down since its such a light color, so that you get more effect! :) Good luck with the painting <3

Wow guys, you’re such an amazing couple. I’m even more amazed because you did all work in Casa cosy by yourself! Such an inspirational! I wish you all the best!
