Reader's home - Martin's Scandi apartment in Berlin

LOVE the following home sent in to us by Martin: We recently moved to berlin to continue our studies in architecture. We're obviously interested in scandinavian design and since we moved here I have the feeling we changed the interior every month. If I should describe our style I would say it's a good mixture of vintage classics and some modern stuff. As we have a three year old son the apartments interior is quite functional. Martin, Julia and Noah share this space, and I love how classically mid-century it is, with just the right amount of minimalism to make it homey but not stark. When you have great furnishings, sometimes less is more to really showcase the pieces. It frankly makes me want to purge.

It looks so airy and stylish - nothing like having modern furniture in a great old space!

Beautiful! I am an Interior Designer planning a move from London to Berlin. Any chance of an introduction to Martin & Julia to see if they have any tips for me? Thanks.

This is such a beautifully furnished apartment! I love how the white colours make it so bright and airy. And that little tent is gorgeous!
