A deal's a deal

I promised photo's of the new apartment once all boxes were emptied and I had put things in cupboards and photo's on walls....so here goes:


So this is the outside of the building. Mine is the less fancy building on the right, behind the tree. At the foot of the tree you can see my front door. Ah.


The view from, well, from every room really.


The breakfast table. And the dinner table. I did say that it's a small apartment, didn't I?


This is the desk of TBNIL. Where I am sat as I write this. The photo's in the frames are from Japan - the general mayhem of Shinjuku and a sneaky picture of a Geisha leaving her Okiya - the Geisha house.

So there you go. The world of TBNIL.

I'm off out now - the traditional 13 July Fireman's ball is happening at the end of my road at Place de la Bastille.

And one wouldn't want to miss a Fireman's ball now, would one?

Hope you had a ball at the ball, Travelling.

You are so brave posting a picture of your front door - you never know, one of these days I might just knock on it!

Lane a dit…

That's so .... Parisian! I am sighing. Deeply.

Hope the ball is brill:-)

Daryl a dit…

Lovely romantic Paris apartment with red walls - I'm drooling :)

wontletlifedefineme a dit…

The apartment looks cosy!

aims a dit…

I love it! and I love that you have used so much red! (my main floor bathroom is red with white trim)

I don't care if it's small - I think it could fit all your readers for a TBNIL's bloggers bash....what say everyone?!

amy a dit…

Love that red, love your place! I second that about having your readers over for a blogger bash...

Rosie a dit…

looks lovely...a city...people...cars...sorry, the country is getting to me again

travelling, but not in love a dit…

Sweary - I'm back from the ball. It was funny, and a bit strange. More police than firemen though, such is the state of the nation...and you can come knock my door anytime!

Lane, it is indeed very Parisian! i was determined that the building I chose would look like a Paris building, if you get what I mean...

Daryl, I also love my iMac, but I'm sure Aims would have something to say about that (she's not a fan of the mac)....and the red is cool. But it's only on the walls in one small room.

Actually it's the dressing room, that I've 'converted' into the office. perfect. And it's all red - really bordello red!

travelling, but not in love a dit…

Softy - let's hope the romantic flat draws in soem romance!

Marjolein, gezellig is the word you're after - I hope!

Aims, let's get together and bash some bloggers! Sounds like fun to me....

Amy and Rosie, next time you gals are in Paris, give me a nod ..... we can do cocktails at the Cafe Creme.

Valleys Mam a dit…

It looks lovely.I too love red accent. You need a companion now TBNIL, how about a french Pussy

Ben a dit…

Excellent. I've been looking for somewhere nice to stay when I'm next there. This looks perfect.

travelling, but not in love a dit…

VM, I'm so allergic to cats, that the presence of on e in the apartment would be enough to kill me!

Ben, whenever you want. Just jump on the Eurostar....

conortje a dit…

I am expecting lots of scandal from last night!

travelling, but not in love a dit…

Conortje, no scandal, alas. Just a lot of French people dancing to a german folk-funk group. All very odd, to be honest...

girl with the mask a dit…

I've just done a really big sigh through my mouth. Looks lovely, TBNIL.

travelling, but not in love a dit…

Thanks GWTM. It is lovely - as long as I manage to keep it tidy, anyway!

Maybe you could pass by with your newly-discovered Mr Sheen?

tornwordo a dit…

This made my heart pang. I think it was envy. I'm so out of practice with that emotion.

travelling, but not in love a dit…

Torny - and so you should be out of practice - you live in one of earth's finest cities!

catherine a dit…

What a gorgeous apartment! And so very Parisian. Hope you're enjoying your long weekend...

travelling, but not in love a dit…

Catherine, it's been great so far - this morning I had the flypast go right over the apartment...thought it was some awful act of terrorism until I saw the coloured fumes...ha ha.

Lewis a dit…

Fantastic! I love the new place....and speaking of small, we'll be in our very own "small" by the end of the week. But yours is prettier. And older.

travelling, but not in love a dit…

Lewis, mine may be pretty and old, but yours is more contemporary and (from what I can see in the photo's) a little bit bigger than mine.

And trust me, that's not something I say to all the boys.... ;-)

wontletlifedefineme a dit…

I didn't know you knew about gezellig, but yes, it does look gezellig. :)

alan a dit…

this is SO not fair! Your place looks more in order (and prettier) than my place which is less than a year old!

Good taste with the iMac, good sir. My next computer when my beloved macbook kicks the bucket... which hopefully shouldn't be anytime soon

Manuel a dit…

your place looks beautiful......it looks the way I imagine mine to look but never ever will.......I could eat crunchy nut cornflakes at that table every day......

travelling, but not in love a dit…

Marjolein - gezellig is as gezellig does. or something like that...

Alan, I bet yours is lovely. And pretty too. And much more ordered than you let on - how can a librarian not have everything in order?

travelling, but not in love a dit…

Hey Manuel .... I'm more of a Special K with chocolate bits man myself, but it is a good place to eat breakfast .... and to snoop on the neighbours....!

Brett a dit…

Love the look of the place, do you known much of the history of the building, any ghost, or famous past owner?

travelling, but not in love a dit…

Hi Brett - I don't but now you've said that, I'm going to look into it...watch this space...

Mike a dit…

Wow! Me likeee. :-D

travelling, but not in love a dit…

Thanks Mike - me likeee too!
