We are delighted to have our very first reader submission today! Antonia Osswald is here to share her lovely home with us! "Together with my boyfriend Gabriel, I live in a 67-square-meter flat in a 100-year-old house in Cologne, Germany. Although our space is limited, I think we made the best of it. I really love the big windows and the huge door between my bedroom and living room. The herring bone floor in the bedroom is as old as the house itself, I am really proud of that. Our interior is a mix between mid-century furniture—the most is from my grandparents—and a lot of gray. Now and then you can find a touch of color. Many things in our flat are self-made or upcycled, so it has a vey personal note." "The bedroom is the home office at the same time. I think you can see which desk is mine and which one is from my boyfriend, haha. From there you can go out on our really small balcony, but it has enough room for two people. So when the weather is nice, we have breakfast or even bbq there. In our living room we spend most of our evenings together. Often I use the kitchen as a working space, because it is not so far away from the coffee machine." "My favorite finds in my place are definitely my three-string shelves. I found them at my grandfather's home between some old stuff. I am so thankful he does not throw away anything. So everytime I'm with him, I can find something new (old) for my place." "We have lived here for four years. At the beginning it was not so nice in our flat. My boyfriend brought his stuff, and I brought mine, so there was no living concept at all. From time to time, the old stuff was replaced. Last year we renovated the whole place. The biggest project was the walk-in closet in the bedroom. Now I really love our home. It is so me."Thank you so much for sharing your space with us, Antonia! You can find more of Antonia over at her blog Craftifair! xo.
