Modern Light Fixtures

We’ve moved! We’re finally¬†out of the 20 square meter temporary apartment, and are now comfortably spread out in a fantastic place in the city center. Awesome. We have no¬†furniture or dishes, but that’s okay.

Anyway, when we moved in, we were pleased to see that the apartment had fancy modern light fixtures.

It’s reminiscent of the Dada movement from the 1920’s.

Just kidding. German apartments don’t come with light fixtuers, because (as it was explained to me) “What happens if you move in, and you don’t like the light fixtures?”

The same is apparently true for kitchens. Some apartments do not come with a kitchen; only the hookups that make kitchens possible. Luckily, our apartment has one built in.

Everything is very modern and new. The wall behind where I took the kitchen photo, is completely covered in large windows. And the hallway is wide and welcoming. I think we did well.
