This Is Nice

What a nice apartment, don't you think? I particularly like the grey kitchen with its black and white floor. I would love to have a reading corner like this too. Shame I've been reading the same book since pregnancy! How lame! I just don't get the chance anymore. I really miss reading. Can anyone recommend any good reads for when I do get back into the spirit of using my brain for this purpose again? Or tell me your favourite books/authors if you'd like to....Always good to make new discoveries! (apartment via here).


  1. I love joyce carol oates's books, I read "blonde" in 2010.
    I like too a book for teens : "kiki strike" wrote by kirsten miller. Enjoy !

  2. The apartment is so light and airy! Would love a reading chair and some bookshelves like that! My favourite book is Cannery Row by John Steinbeck, but I'd recommend any Steinbeck, Hesse or Orwell. If you like non-fiction I recently read an incredible book called 'The Brain that Changes Itself'.

  3. i loved 'one day' by david nicholls. an easy read but not at all pap. and a page-turner if ever there was one! a gorgeous book.

    hope you're feeling better. brills that your prints are selling so well. i'm really surprised at how busy january has been shop-wise so far. x

  4. I am completely stuck in a georgette hayer rut! I love a period drama and love story and find it's just a quick easy read/guilty pleasure!

    help me!

    love the apartment! just incase you didn't know it's alllll about white tiles and grey grout! How much fun house hunting! - no wonder there's no time to read!

  5. Blogger can be funny sometimes...perhaps that's what's happened to me today too!
    My faves are:
    Memoirs of a Geisha
    A thousand stunning Suns
    and I'm currently reading The Last Chinese Chef and bought the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo...want to see what all the hype is about!
    Tell me if you read any of them.

  6. this is awesome ! i wish our next apartment has a beautiful lights like here.. :)

    i didn't finished reading yet ~
    My Life in France, Julia Child
    The Sweet Life in Paris, David Lebovitz

  7. Anywhere with a wall full of books is where I want to be :)) I love the Ikea fabric panel too - wish I'd bought more of this, I've nearly used all mine up now. Great pics - thanks Kerry. Kx

  8. Forgot to recommend a book..!

    Unless by Carol Shields is one of my favourites :)


  9. many books to choose from. I enjoyed The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. Entertaining and poignant. I have an extra copy...

  10. Love this apartment! And as for book recommendations, I just finished Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen - hilarious, seriously hilarious.

    Happy New Year! :)

  11. It's a beautiful flat, I love how they have mixed old and new cabinets in the kitchen and then painted them the same colour.
    Re books: I recently read "The kite runner" and "A thousand splendid suns" by Khaled Hosseini, and found them fascinating!

  12. Wow...what a great response about books! Thanks lovely people. I have so many to look into! I have read some of your suggestions (love Unless by Carlo Shields, Kylie, and the Curious Incident....Dabito. Also loved the Kite Runner Anna, but haven't read the second one yet...I have it day)!

  13. The places reflect purity...
    The position of the windows enlighted the places
    And it show amazing interior design...

  14. Garden Forum...doesn't it just!
