Christmas in Leipzig

A reader named Theresa emailed us recently with the following: "My name is - as you may have seen - Theresa, I am a 23 year old student of Book and Media Production in Leipzig/Germany. My large interest in Fashion, Interior Design and everything vintage. I am living at my blog www.neu4bauer.blogspot.com for more than 2 years now. What I like best about my 60 sqm appartment in the Eastern part of Germany are the high ceiling with ornaments, the amazing light because of many windows and the fact that almost all furniture (table, desk, drawers, ...) are made by my grandfather or taken from the attic of my grandma. We did a lot of refurbishing last year ;)" I am completely jealous of Theresa's space. Those windows! The ceiling height! The herringbone hardwood! And she has decorated it sooooo beautifully. (Geez, when I was a student I lived in a freezing cold, tiny, low ceiling basement apartment on the main bar strip). Thank you for sharing your home with us Theresa!!

This is one dreamy apartment! I love the way that the vintage images and holiday decorations are worked in. I imagine that it took a lot of work, but the results are stunning... thank you for sharing and I can't wait to see future work.

What a lucky gal! It is striking with those wood floors and white walls. I think her hand-me-down furniture looks amazing too!

Love the space, however, don't the clothes get dusty hanging in plain sight or is she an avid duster?

The trestle table, the wreath, the floors, the Xmas tree in the window, the bookcases ........ I could go on and on! I love the little vignettes wherever you look. Just beautiful!

So many great things in this small space! I especially love the colour coordination of the books in the great bookshelf!

What a beautiful home! I love the clean, white palette and that everything is so functional. Her minimal Christmas decorations just pop off the pictures - PERFECT!

love it. love, love, love it.

WOw! Theresa makes it look so easy. Who knew a small space with white walls could be so far from a straight jacket and padded room? I love everything about it. Especially the closet!!

Wow! Absolutely stunning!

Omigod that sofa. How gorgeous. I about dropped my jaw in that first photo and then was amazed in every picture. I need her grandfather to come work his magic in my place.

I love the photos! One thing I find odd, though - sorting books by color. It makes sense for clothing, but books?!

9 Dec 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKitty

Just: "wow..."

It's amazing!

9 Dec 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSara

Love the intricate detail of the ceiling!
