A BERLIN APARTMENT WITH NATURAL & RAW MATERIALS

AK1

This beautiful apartment located in a 19th century building in Berlin, Germany, has been decorated by interior designer Annabell Kutucu in collaboration with Michael Schickinger. The use of natural, raw materials and subtle colors gives this apartment a warm atmosphere. The dark colors in bedroom and bathroom add a touch of chic to the home. The same designers are also responsible for the decor of the San Giorgio Hotel on Mykonos (which you can see here and here).

AN ELEGANT TOWNHOUSE IN COPENHAGEN, DENMARK

tia-borg-smidt 1

This townhouse from 1931 located in Copenhagen, Denmark, is decorated with a mix of old (vintage furniture pieces and original features) and new (modern furniture & accessories). The old herringbone parquet floor in the living room (top image) is stunning. This type of floor is perfect for such an elegant building from the 1930′s. All together the result is a simple yet elegant decor with warmth and character.

MY FAVORITE THINGS: A RATTAN HANGING CHAIR

hangingchiar21

One of my favorite furniture pieces (ever) is a rattan hanging chair. Ten years ago I purchased one for my previous home and over the years I have been seeing these chairs more and more. I still love them and I am thinking about getting one again for our new veranda (more about the veranda later this year when it is completely finished). Here some examples of these chairs being used inside and outdoors. My favorite chair is the one you see in the first, second and last image. This chair is available from Serena & Lilly and is also available in white.

ramsey-covey-interior-1

This 1920s Spanish cottage in California, USA, is not large but it does has a lot of character. Details such as a plaster fireplace, arches, coved ceilings and candle alcoves give a cosy and warm feel to the home. I love the Mediterranean style architecture of the house.

mallorcaest1

Danish designer Tine Kjeldsen is well known for her homeware label Tine K Home. Her family home is located on Danish island Funen but she also owns a beautiful home on the Spanish island of Mallorca. The 3 bedroom apartment is situated in Palma, the main city on the island. The interior is rustic chic and decorated with designs from tinekhome. There are beautiful original details such as old tiles and double doors. The charming 90sqm apartment can be rented. It is located in a neighborhood full of cafes, restaurants and close to a wonderful indoor food market, and it is therefore a perfect opportunity for families who want to experience Palma’s city life while staying in an urban area. I have been to Palma and it is really a great city to visit. More information about the apartment can be found here.
