Michael's Mini-Loft in Munich
What I Love About My Home
My apartment is located on the top floor of a 6 storey building, directly under the roof. This means that I have ceiling heights ranging from >3 meters to 40 centimeters. It never feels cramped though - it is a combination of open space - almost like a mini-loft - and cozy small bedroom. I really like the dramatic sloping ceilings, interesting layout and the many windows that let in lots of light. Oh, and I also have a little tower room with a 7 meter high ceiling and windows on all sides - which is my favorite place to work in!
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
On paper, my apartment is approximately 790 square feet - but in reality it is much less because the sloping ceilings take away quite a bit of the floor space. It is also very difficult to find furniture that will fit! It took me almost 4 years to find pieces that will fit into the space and match my style. The very white and bright interior was a challenge but I try to balance it with warm wood pieces from Ikea, thrift stores and eBay and little trinkets from all over the world. This apartment enforces minimalism which I really like but sometimes find challenging ... I have to force myself to think really hard before bringing anything new into the place. And yes, I have hit my head more than once.
