Kitchen in new apartment

We moved in 3 weeks ago and there is still so much to do but the place is starting to look nicer. I've spent most of my time working on the kitchen (when I have any time at all).
I love this area of the kitchen with my little table and the three ikea chairs that I painted (well they aren't all finished yet but you can't tell in the picture which one is finished and which two aren't:)

The built in kitchen is more 'modern' than I'd like it to be and there is practically no cupboard space or work surface. Since this is a rental we didn't do much to improve that except add a few shelves. I only have one drawer in my kitchen so our silverware is hanging on the wall:)

I do like the the cupboard with the glass door so I can display some of my nicer plates and bowls.

This is a thrift store find that I got in France, we only live 20 minutes from France now which is lots of fun. I'll post more pictures of some of my other thrift store finds from France soon!

I love the light pastel colors of the design.

the ceilings in our new place are very high so you can't actually see the lamp hanging from the ceiling in the first picture. I love this lamp, it's goes perfectly with the table and the little shelf on the wall. I also love that I got this lamp for free:)
Will be posting more pictures of our new apartment soon!

  3. Simple but pretty. You did a good job decorating it. Despite the limitations of some apartment, you set a great example that there's still room for sprucing up the place.
