We found an apartment for next year! Unfortunately the snapshots that we have don't do justice to the interesting architectural quirks and floor plan, so instead, here are some ideas I have for decorating....
I've always wanted a built in kitchen cabinet that I could paint with a contrasting interiors. The kitchen walls and cabinets are cream colored, so I may go with blue or green accents. But we will not be filling the cabinet with pitchers.
I was really intrigued rug for the kitchen (from this article in Elle Decor). You can literally hose it off when it gets dirty.
And perhaps a makeshift solution for seating until we find a couch that we like?
