What’s it like to live in a fantastical German chalet in the heart of downtown Los Angeles? Hannah Kopacz of Made With Love By Hannah has customized her colorful abode with twenty years’ worth of knick knack and ric rac treasure hunting. Take a tour of her packed home, overflowing with vintage and handmade gnomes, figurines, mushrooms and veggie people.

For more on Hannah’s projects, tchotchkes and gettin’ shack wacky, check out her blog and Flickr stream. She even made her studio (which is a shed in her backyard) look like a huge cuckoo clock!

    It is nice to see your place with all of your collections. No wonder your work is so inspiring - you are surrounded by beauty. It is really great that you created a little 'safe haven' for yourself in L.A. I still love the Mushroom skirt I purchased a while back.

    Hannah, your place is fantastic. So much, but not cluttery. Very organized and cute. Love your unusual collections, and especially the cuckoo's. My in-laws had one from Germany that was a favorite of everyone. You need "The Sound of Music" soundtrack playing in the background :)

  • LaughingBird

    LaughingBird said 12 years ago

    Hannah ! Your collection ROCKS , hands down...I have a bit of Germany in my background too, so some of your things were pleasantly familiar :) There's also one item that I saw in your clock ensemble that I have too ! The little tiny cuckoo clock with Hansel and Gretel and the Witch... I have loved that thing since I was a little kid and saw it on my Oma's kitchen wall. Anyhow, I ramble....great to have "met" you.... have a super day. Yodelay-hee-hoo !
