Archives of inspiration No. 3

This month, I finally bought a dining table and chairs for my awkwardly large and slightly dark kitchen. It is nice to feel like this room is becoming a useful space in my apartment, but my first dining table and chairs are not like I imagined them. If it were like how I imagined, the dining area would probably be full of light fixtures, a table and chairs like the ones featured here.

But purchases like that are not particularly practical, now or ever. What I have is good for now, and my archives remind me of what I can one day work to have should I ever settle in a home I can justifiably invest in (rather than a rented apartment in a foreign country!).
