The place I would like to call home must have:
- a spacious open kitchen
- ditto living room
- a “hidden” storeroom (to hide so called “junk” - I quote Le Boyfriend when he’s complaining about my incapability to throw things away, things that have emotional value and I'd rather describe as childhood treasures)
- two bedrooms (I like to think ahead: somewhere in the future we will have children ... I guess)
- a bathroom (no dirty roomies for me)
- last but not least (something our current apartment is missing): a patio or terrace to have, for example, morning cups of weekend coffee and breakfasts & dinners when the weather is nice
Searching for pictures of a home like this it dawned on me that I’ve seen it many times before: the ideal home to me is a place that looks exactly like Monica’s apartment in the TV show Friends. I’ve seen the complete serial (10 seasons + extras) way too many times but I guess my couch-potato behaviour has taught me something after all, i.e. what kind of place I would like to call home.
