Let’s start with the neighborhood. What’s it like where you live? I love my neighbourhood, because a lot of families and students live here. Near my home is a big park and a lake.
What makes your home offbeat? I looove colours and good moods. I try to create harmony with colours, patterns and texture. Happiness, joy, light, flowers, sunshine, pillows, candles. My home is feminine and a little bit romantic.
What’s the most challenging about this space? How do you deal with the challenge? My apartment is very dark and small. No space for stuff. I can’t buy a lot of things. And I have to use a white floor and white furniture to bring light in the rooms.
What’s your favorite feature of your home? My favourite place is my big balcony in the summer time. When I’m sitting there with a cup of tea I look in the garden… this makes me happy.
What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned from this home? The lesson that I have learned from my home is that you don’t need a lot of money to have a beautiful home. Everything in my home is not expensive. The furniture is from Ikea (I have painted it in ivory white).
What’s your grandest plan for the space? I’m dreaming of a new bed in wood and with a headboard covered with fabric. A big colourful quilt for my bed and pillows.
What advice do you have for other offbeat homies? Colours are very important. Use only colours you like in your home. Everything looking ugly put it away in a cupboard, so you don’t see it always. Flowers, pillows, candles!
