I work as a freelance translator from home and I have always had plenty of friends visiting. So in times when I had no guests my place suddenly seemed almost too empty for me :)
What else can I say... well, everyone who ever stayed in my apartment said it is just a really cosy place to be.
I don't have expensive furniture but all things I put in my place are "hand-picked" - I'm searching flea markets for special items, I bring back beautiful souvenirs from my travels, I even found furniture and gave it a new life by renovating it.
I love cooking (if you do too, we can "trade" :) I even try to have something like a herb garden on my balcony.
I like having friends over for dinner and I love going out, but during the day I am rather quiet because I need to focus on my translation work.
