What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home? I love my dining area with the green-white-striped-wall, triangle table and two white chairs. I made the worker mad, who had to paint the stripes.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your small home? The biggest challenge was, that this is my first owned-by-me-home and also the first place where I could put all of my ideas into practice. It was the hardest to find the right color combination. I wanted an black & white apartment, something very chic and not so cozy or warm. It was hard to find the white floor, to put the glass over the counter instead of putting tiles. But it worked out perfectly, I found the right atmosphere. My most important resource was my father (ie. the bed was made by him, as a present), who worked much in the apartment. Almost all of the furniture is from IKEA. I still have so much to do, but I am pleased with the result.
