A home for the future
Olga and Honza built their eco house on a plot of land that has been in Honza’s family for generations. ‘We’d like to carry on the family tradition and stay here forever, so it was important to get the space right. And we have no set rules, so every space is flexible.
Make your space suit the way you live
Build a bookcase wall
‘I’m obsessed with books,’ says Olga. ‘It all started when I read my first Harry Potter… when I was 13. After that, I would save all my pocket money to buy all the others – and I’ve loved reading ever since. Being surrounded by my books makes me feel happy. We don’t have a TV. I just sit on the sofa and watch my library instead.’
Create an easy cooking zone
Olga loves to cook and keeps her cookbooks and jars of everyday ingredients on open shelves she can easily get to. ‘I love to grow herbs inside too, so this has become my special little cooking wall.’
