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.
