As stated earlier, rental apartments are not usually that gothic and especially bathrooms and kitchens can be awfully pastel. So kitchenware is the only salvation for a person who wishes to make home look more fashionable.
I found these lovely wine glasses from a flea market and sadly have no idea where or whom by the are manufactured.
Another product I have grown very fond of is this cutting board. Actually I have three of them, two small (about the size of an A4 paper) and one bigger. I bought them from a shop called Espan Enkelit (http://www.espanenkelit.fi/) But below the picture is a straight link to the manufacturing company. These cutting boarrds are made of glass and are much hygienic than the ones made of plastic or wood.
