There’s something about a chalk-drawn kitchen, and looong bench that adds to the charm about a place. Not quite lived in, though. All the furniture here is from Minimum.de. If you’re liking the minimalist feel, check out this apartment also.
My favourite thing about this house is how it frames the outside. The leaves are coming back in the dreary North-West European country that I live in, and it’s beautiful – what better time to share. I took some pictures in the forest over winter, and looking back it seems so barren! Bring on sunshine and flowers.
I’ve been in an earthy mood lately, it must be Spring coming. I was taking a walk around the park yesterday and could see signs of green in the trees. It almost looked like a rebirth.
This penthouse is right in the centre of Berlin. Look at that view! The place is kept pretty simple for that focus, I imagine.
Berlin is known for individuality, and Rote Insel – a district of the city – is too (literally ‘Red Island’ due to the railway trenches and leftist sympathies that characterised the place). For some reason the area survived many of the air raids during the war and managed to retain a lot of its characterful period buildings such as this one. The island was home to famous entertainers such as Hildegard Knef (who I imagine was singing about the island here) and Marlene Dietrich (acting alongside the great David Bowie in this video). What better location for an apartment as eclectic as this?
