Reader’s home – Carolin’s DIY apartment in Germany

Posted on Tue, 25 Sep 2012 by KiM

Today’s reader’s home comes from Carolin: I’m 34-years-old and I’m living in Cologne, Germany, working as a graphic designer. I love living in a comfy & neat home and I do love to craft, so I renovated this 60 sq m apartment completely on my own. I painted the walls, built some lamps and the table, painted the chairs and did the art work (also the photos, as I love to photograph, too). Some furniture is new, some is from my grandma, and some are flea market finds – like the ladder, which I brought home by foot, though this was a 2 hour walk ;). I love the cosy vibe of Carolin’s place, especially how she used paint to create interest on the walls – instead of just doing the typical focal wall. And WOW – great DIY art!
