“How a house becomes a home” - Brita SÖNNICHSEN documents dream interiors for the new publication by CALLWEY

CALLWEY publishing has released a new 192-page book dedicated to turning your living space into a home. Brita SÖNNICHSEN documented the charming interiors inspired by writer Stefanie Luxat’s ideas.

“We have come to stay! Is the thought that should be running through our mind when we move into a new place. Not: we have come to, well let’s just see what happens.” Stefanie Luxat is an interiors expert and one of Germany’s most successful lifestyle bloggers. She starts her new book, “how to turn a house into a home” with a call against moving boxes that take up too much space, wallpaper and paint that no one actually likes and the cowardice to make any changes because “I’ll be moving out soon anyway”. This book seeks to inspire people everywhere to embrace interiors, surround yourself with things you love even if you are just renting.
