in my dreams, i live here: berlin.
last time i dreamed of living elsewhere it was new york city. this week, i’m feeling a hankering to up and transport myself to berlin. it’s on the top of my ‘it places’ to visit and sites like freunde von freunden with their home tours of berlin’s most creative residents just increase my curiosity ten-fold. so today, i’m moving to berlin. at least in my dreams…
when i live here, i’m probably going to be a wildly talented photographer (it’s a dream, right?), so i’m going to have a nice home studio office to work from. i’ve decided it will look like this, via alvhem.
i like these minimalist bookshelves via lonny. anna at door sixteen is building some, and i cannot wait to see them completed. i’ll have a cool floor lamp like this one from the home of architects Edwina and Eddie Glenn, via the design files; and just to mix things up a bit, i’d like a vintage leather sofa like this one via the selby.
it won’t be a large place, but it will have lots of unusual nooks, so i think i’ll build out a little loft space for the bedroom, like this one via beautiful home.
i’ll be really proud and happy to be a berliner, so i’ll hang this print via items by design bird; and i’ll ride a bike everywhere, but there won’t be a good place to keep my bike outside, so i’ll decorate around it inside, via the design files; i’ll keep accessories to a minimum so it’s uncluttered and functional, like these photographed for d home by jamie laubhan-oliver.
and there may not be room for a full dining room, but a cute little nook liked this from bolig will work just fine; with a lovely little subway tiled white kitchen like this photographed by paul massey; i’ll shop local at farmer’s markets and specialty shops, eating fresh food daily, via freunde von freunden.
