Tasket: these rugs are plastic and can be washed pretty easily. We have a similar one in our kitchen and mostly I just mop up spills as you would normally. Once or twice a month I throw it into the washing machine for a good clean.

Quick question:

Anyone know where the pendant light in the first picture is from? Would love to have something like this.

Thanks for your comment. I thought it was just me who couldn't stand this woman. Thankfully I only borrowed the book and didn't buy it; still one hour of my life that I won't get back....

Oh dear. I would have replaced the tiles and the worktops and left the rest as before. It was lovely. Not that it is ugly now, I would just prefer the "before" a great deal more.

My "baustelle" are windows. Haven't cleaned mine in 2 years and cannot even muster enough shame to tackle one or two of them. Rest of the flat is pretty clean though.

Roomba, honey. Buy one of them, put them on a daily timer. It's not quicker though (even close).

Ummh.... a picture hanging system? Friends of mine have this in the living room (with transparent nylon cord cables). Once you install a gallery rail, you can swap around your pictures quite easily.

Alas, too true. I know of no apartment that has a mudroom (even pantries are rare here). But maybe it is a regional thing? I live in a city and space is too much of a premium here -- if it has enough room for a mudroom someone will stick a bed in there and call it a bedroom.

Of course it is "lightness" now as they photographed the after-pictures with some decent lighting. I can see the point you are making, no need to hit me over the head with it. Like the new decor though.

Thank you for all your comments! I have decided to put a rug down for the moment and leave the flooring questions for the time being. I will paint the walls though; I am thinking of a light pink (same tone as the backsplash but lighter) but my husband is worried it will look like a candy-store. Ah, well. Will paint it back if we don't like it.

P.S. Those worried about my landlord and local Swiss rules -- never fear! My landlord doesn't mind if we change the flooring (some of the tiles are damaged anyway) and he gave this to me in writing. Also, I am Swiss and I think I can handle the locals. Mind, I haven't lived here for 15 years but I doubt it has changed this much.
