My Home is Hugging Me - Astra and her two cat’s home in Maastricht
Before moving to Maastricht to study Law, Astra lived in many other Dutch cities including Amsterdam for many years. Although she also enjoys the busy pace of big cities, her favorite city is still Maastricht where she decided to settle. And this apartment that she found when she first moved here has now been with her for ten years.
Surrounded by large windows on three sides of the living room, the flat is extremely airy and bright. The only off side is that the ceilings are a bit low for Astra - but asides from that, its central but quiet location is perfect and you are immediately welcomed by a beautiful garden as you enter the gate.
After making the decision to settle, Astra got a white cat then a black cat. They make it a bit difficult for her to keep up with her traveling, since she would like to spend more time to care and stay with them. In her free time, Astra also enjoys making her own perfume in her hobby room, the burgandy walls offering a completely different vibe than the rest of her apartment. When asked what her favorite thing about living here is, she answered “I always feel like my home is hugging me.”
