I've been living in my new apartment for a while now, but you know how it is after moving to a new place - there's always something you still don't have and that needs to be bought to make a room complete.
I got all the basic furniture I need, like a bed, a kitchen, a desk etc. but there are still furniture wishes that got lost along the way in the course of the past months due to a lack of money and the problem of not having a car to transport heavier pieces.
Also there are certain things, e.g. my dining table and chairs, that I brought from the old home but don't really like anymore, so I plan on replacing them as soon as possible. Oh well, never really content with what you have, I guess it's just the nature of mankind, right?
Anyway, here is a little wish list and collection of inspiration for how I want my apartment to be in the future. It will be a big project as a whole, but I hope I'll manage to get closer to my ideal step by step in the course of this year.
Btw if you'd like to see some impressions of my living room/bedroom visit this post.
I like it cozy and rustic mixed with modern, playful and colourful. My biggest wish is a big and comfy brown leather armchair or sofa to go with the vintage cocktail chair I already bought via Ebay. It would be great to have a little "living room corner" as my bedroom is also my office and living room at the same time too. I need more seatings because at the moment I can either offer my guests only the bed to sit on (which can be quite awkward with some guests...) or I have to stay in the kitchen with them.
For the rustic touch I'd love to have one of these tables made out of a wine box and for the coziness some cute pillows and a knit plaid.
Not a must, but a bonus would be a beautiful new lamp and some nice prints or paintings for the walls.

Furthermore I found some awesome DIY projects that I'd love to try out soon. I'm not good at crafting, but maybe it will get better with a little practicing?
Here is a little collection of my favourite DIYs from Pinterest, which all happen to be light-related:
Have a lovely day everyone!
