Dachgeschoss

Via Desire to Inspire
In English Dachgeschoss means attic floor.  It is an attic space made into a living space, often an apartment or extra room on a house (in America, we call it a finished attic).  With their slanted walls and low ceilings, the Dachgeschoss is by far the coziest place in the house. Wouldn't you just love to have a room there?  It would feel like you had your own little hideaway--your own magic cave--all the time.  I have collected some lovely pictures of adorable Dachgeschoss rooms and flats.  Don't they look inviting?
Via Pinterest - love the brick and wood.
Via vi.sualize.us - It's so simple and cottage-y but so warm and inviting!
Via The Berry. How fun is that bed?
Via My Ideal Home.  I love this room!
Via 1 Kind Design.  You have got to love the brick and the beams.  The picture below is from the same apartment.

So how about you?  Have you ever/always wanted an attic space?  How do you make the most of your attic space?  Any hints?
