I am getting somewhere with furnishing my apartment – and that barely 16 months after I moved in… This week I have finally bought a reading lamp to match the lamp on the ceiling in my bedroom. It is not bright enough to read in bed though, so I will have to change the lightbulb to something stronger, but still, I have arrived at this:

My bedroomThe chest is from China, and if the dealer I bought it from is to be believed, it is an antique from the 1920s. I am not sure if this is true, it was relatively cheap, so… This is the only piece of furniture in my bedroom because I sleep on a futon on the tatami. To the right of the picture is the small balcony on the north side of the building and to the left the large oshiie where I store my clothes.

As you can see, so far, I have no pictures on the walls, but I am thinking of buying a nice woodblock print from a friend of mine. We’ll see, I have had my eye on a very specific one for quite a while. By now, only the livingroom is still lacking furniture, but there is an antique market this month again where I wanted to go and maybe finally find the type of table I have been looking for so long. You will see a picture the moment my livingroom is finished as well.
