Hey guys, welcome to the first House Crush of 2016! I’m a little bit obsessed with the House Crush posts I have to say, and this one is particularly exciting. Check out Anatasia’s incredibly cool German pad. Following on from yesterday’s post, I love the restrained palette, and Anastasia’s really nailed it. It’s quite monochromatic, but she’s recently been seduced to the dark side (hurrah!) and the bedroom has just had a moody makeover. I just adore the finished look – chocolatey dark walls and crumpled charcoal bedding, coupled with gold and antique finds is my idea of heaven.

I also love the fact that Anastasia lives so close to the forest, and she forages for native foliages and branches to decorate her place. The results are so beautiful, as well as all her ingenious homemade artwork. It helps if you’re ultra creative of course, but in the Q&A below Anastasia shares some of her secrets to help all of us achieve the look. Thanks so much Anastasia! If you’d like to see more of her fab pad and DIY creations, head over to at{Anastasia Benko}. Enjoy…


Welcome to my pad. It’s a two storey building in Dortmund, Germany. The apartment is not that big, so before we moved in I made sure that the functions of every room were exploited to the fullest! After a long renovation, we moved in almost two years ago.

My style in 5 words… Inspired by antiques and classics. Although honestly, I think words cannot describe an interior – it’s all about feelings they bring up.
