As an American who recently moved to Paris, the first thing that shocked me when apartment hunting was the lack of cabinets (and closets and lighting for that matter) in apartments. Plus, as mentioned above, kitchens are very small by American standards and often have exposed water heaters and/or electrical boxes.

A few years ago, I lived in a third-floor walk up that was situated above a used book store. It had many hidden alcoves, a beautiful kitchen, lots of sunlight. I could go on and on. I classified the apartment as "so me" and I always looked forward to coming home.

I only wish my first apartment out of college had the same warm feel. Your apartment is adorable and welcoming.
