Chic & Country - - Liv­ing -

Thanks to their love of flea mar­kets and an­tiques fairs, Silke and Ralf 's eclec­tic home is full of charm­ing vin­tage finds. Vin­tage style is cer­tainly some­thing of an ob­ses­sion for Silke, since when she's not ac­tu­ally work­ing you can usu­ally find her at a flea mar­ket, hunt­ing out her lat­est bar­gain. Her great­est pas­sion is col­lect­ing pretty flo­ral china, ro­man­tic fur­ni­ture, shabby chic fab­rics and more – vir­tu­ally ev­ery­thing you need for daily life, but on the whole rather pret­tier. Vis­it­ing an­tiques fairs and mar­kets is in her blood, hav­ing in­her­ited the habit at an early age. “I've loved pot­ter­ing about at such places al­most my whole life” she smiles.

The spa­cious cabi­net is a find from eBay. It just fits per­fectly be­neath the ceil­ing.
