AT Survey:

My/Our style: Colorful, vintage, but also hi-tech

Inspiration: Bits and pieces from everywhere. Cafes, pubs, furniture store, offices..

Favorite Element: Bricks wall in the living room

Biggest Challenge: Size! Its very very small! Can’t really figure out where to put things

What Friends Say: "CUTE!"

Biggest Embarrassment: the smelly watering system in the main bathroom. Can't seem to figure out what’s wrong. And, the fact that we have so many shoes, but no place to store it due to, again, a small apartment.

Proudest DIY: Designing the house together with the spouse and our interior designer.

Biggest Indulgence: Spending time in the living room with playstation, dvd and lots of nibbles.

Dream source: Electronic Store!
