Freunde von Freunden sneak peek

Zsuzsanna Toth of Freunde von Freunden sent over a sneak peek (with exclusive pics you won't find on fvf) of the latest interview with gallerist Karena Schuessler

"They are earnest and discreet, wear black glasses and have minimalistic furnished habitats. This is a gallerist stereotype. But a walk through the door of Karena Schuessler’s Charlottenburg apartment reveals the exact opposite ..."

You'll have to pay a visit to Freunde von Freunden to see more. Such a tease!

Patrice Bastian and Laetitia Schlumberger and Freude von Freunden

Just like friends of friends. People you get to know but don't really know ... if you know what I mean. Once again one of our friends from Freunde von Freunden have shared a few images from their latest interview and home and office tour. Patrice Bastian, creative director and architect, and Laetitia Schlumberger, fashion designer. An amazing house in the 10th arrondisement, Paris and an intiguing story of creative ideas and lasting love found in China. Just a tease here on Desire to Inspire. You'll have to pop over to Freunde von Freunden to discover more. Photography by Fred Lahache. Story by Léa Munsch.

A different perspective

How cool is this house by German architecture firm Kraus Schönberg?! The lower level is open-concept and cut into the ground to create a sightline directly across the property so the views are all about the landscape. This is such a great idea if there are hieight restrictions that need to be respected. It allows the house to be lower than average but gives you an amazing amount of light even when partially underground. Simple yet so effective.

Föhr

Take me away this long, lonely Monday to the island of Föhr off the north coast of Germany. To a hay barn cleverly converted to a holiday home. Ancient brick and thatch enclose a modern renovation that references the island's history of bed-boxes and the traditional blue green colours of Friesland. Wood and tile and 500m of blue polypropylene rope. By Swedish firm Karin Matz Arkitekt.
