|Dining Room - Before|
This bright space is perfect for a cup of coffee in the morning, as the sun streams through the giant windows.
It's a big dining room - I wish the table could be extended, so we could seat more people. But we only own 7 chairs.....so maybe it's a good thing!!!
|Dining Room - Before - blank canvas!|
|Dining Room - After|
This cool pine chest was already in the apartment. We added the black cutout lamp (that I found for 20 euro on clearance!), some artwork and an orchid. Simple, but it adds a bit of color and interest to this corner.
And I had lots of fun finding inexpensive items for the glass shelves. These cardboard boxes are fun!
The kitchen got some new lights (it was really dark in there at night!) and some artwork. We're still getting used to our miniature refrigerator and freezer. One very nice touch are the countertops. They're some sort of concrete terrazzo. They aren't as hard wearing as granite (I learned the hard way that if you cut something, it will leave a mark), but they are speckled with reds, black and grey and provide a nice surface.
Now we just want to sit back and enjoy for awhile!
