My new life

Okay, guys, I've got it all figured out. My new life plan. I will buy this apartment in Stockholm and move to Sweden. (Photo from Apartment Therapy.)

Then I'll get a job in Madrid at the Selgas Cano architecture office. Look! It's in the woods! The commute might be killer, but everyone says European countries are small and close together, so it shouldn't be a problem. And never mind that I'm not an architect; maybe they'll let me make the cafe con leche and clean the windows or something. (Photos from ArchDaily.)

And then, when I'm exhausted from all that work, I'll vacation here at the Hollmann Beletage in Vienna. Be sure to mouse over all the "Tour" pictures on their site; it's fun! (Photos from Hollmann Beletage.)

Love it! But it almost looks like you're moving into an Ikea (which happens to be my own plan)! :D

What a great life plan ... a little impractible :) but it sounds fabulous. I might have to join you at work though, that office looks amazing. You can make the coffee and i'll clean the windows.

So, does this mean I can come live with Alex in the newly-minted bachelor digs? We could go and hang out at all the cool spots in Chi-town, catch some ball games, go to Navy Pier (HAR!), and do...you know, "guy stuff".

Oh, and *definitely* repaint the place. I'm thinking gray, cream and dark blue, but he and I can talk. :]

Pink Sky said...

That office looks like a giant human habitrail. :) Though I have to say you can't beat the natural light in it! :) I'd love to have a studio like that!

whatever you do don't take a job washing the windows there - doesn't look like fun!

Rachelle said...

That is so futuristic looking and fun! I wanted to tell you that I’m hosting an incredible giveaway for a $195 EZ View Desktop on my blog. Come on over and enter!

Mati said...

Love the office in the woods.The massive whiteness scares me in regard to cleaning

Smellyann said...

I have something for you over on my blog, if you want to come and get it!

Laura Trevey said...

Sounds like a plan to me :)

Erin at Vale Design said...

I will wash windows with you. That place is amazing. Not sure I would get more than daydreaming done if I worked there :)

Ashlee said...

Can I come with you? I love all of those spaces!

Vicki said...

Jessica,

I like you're new life plan. :) Your posts always inspire me and make me laugh. Thanks!

picciolo said...

wow, can I come? I might stay in that office, what a wonderful place to work!
: )

Becky said...

Too funny! But I wanna sleep downstairs when I visit. I'd prolly roll right out of that loft!

Jess said...

No problem. We can have a slumber party in the living room, and then you'll be safe.

Jess said...

And Dede, I will bring some Midol with me.

Jess said...

haha sounds like a marvelous plan =b

that girl said...

If there was a career in creating life plans for others you would have been the guru of the life planers!

Dana said...

Although, I personally dont like orange that much but these decors are relly chic, contemporary and beautiful.

Great decor!

kafferepet said...

Typical Swedish architecture and design, almost everyone has white walls and parquet flooring here. Have you seen that we also got an ice hotel in the north of Sweden? It's crazy!

Jess said...

Ice hotel?? I will have to look this up.

kafferepet said...

Yes, look: http://www.icehotel.se/Winter/Icehotel/Art/!
..you can imagine how cold it is up here in winter... but now it's +25C ! Have a lovely summer.

Jess said...

Wow! It's beautiful!
