I am very thankful that finally we can start anew. If all things go as planned, we will get the keys to our new apartment by Thursday.
We enjoyed staying in a studio apartment for years - where you need to keep things simple and functional in order to have more space. We don't even have a sofa for visitors yay! Fortunately, our new apartment provides a proper place for the basics. There is a living room area, kitchen, a room for Andreas, a master's bedroom and a storage.
So for a couple of weeks now, we've been looking around for home furnishings. I started with my list on the kitchen because it is the area closest to the main door. We need stool bars for the built-in breakfast table. This will serve as dining area for awhile until we can buy a proper dining set. We need new set of pots, pans, and crockery; Blinds for the two narrow windows - I am thinking wooden blinds to provide natural and crafted look. At first I thought of curtains, but I found roller blinds more flexible in controlling the amount of sunlight you want in the room. I know because our studio apartment currently has vertical blinds. Of course it also saves space and has aesthetic to merit. Plus the fact that they install the blinds for free.
Oh it's a busy month of moving and shopping!
