The gallery

A starkly beautiful white shell becomes a stylish contemporary apartment by Berlin-based BRUZKUS BATEK. Stripped down and gallery-like the scene is set for life's dramas through "the interplay of space, materiality, colour and light".

The Flushing Meadows

I have never been to Germany, but if I ever to get the opportunity to go, I know where I want to stay! The Flushing Meadows. Our hotel is situated on the top two floors of an industrial building in Munich's most vibrant neighborhood, the Glockenbach – just a couple of meters from the Isar's wild river banks. The third floor features 11 individual loft studios with exceptionally high ceilings, each created in collaboration with selected personalities and friends from various creative realms, including music, cinema, design, sports and art. The top floor is home to five variously sized penthouse studios, some with private terrace – as well as the Flushing Meadows Bar.

Kitchens you will not find in the burbs

I am all about kitchens that are any combination of black, white, grey, wood and brass. And then I saw this, again by Gisbert Pöppler. It makes me want to move to a flat in Europe, because I don't think this will can be pulled off anywhere else. And OMG I kind of like the peach and green combo. It's TRUE. With the gold and brass accents it's so classy art deco (I would have gone with funkier chairs tho').

Colour coded

Gisbert Pöppler is an architect and interior designer based in Berlin whose portfolio is....jaw-dropping. Exuberant flourishes are tempered with Northern European restraint, creating harmonious hybrids of unexpected elegance. If you are one to err on the side of colour, then feast your eyes on these spaces. Art deco, mid-century mixed with every colour combination you could think of. And somehow, it just works. But I think that's because the architecture is as bold and ornate as the colours. Attempt this in your cookie-cutter house in the burbs and you will likely fail miserably.

Steve Herud

I have not been this enthralled with a photographer who shoots commercial spaces in a long time, but Steve Herud is a genius when it comes to capturing funky restaurants, hotels and rental apartments. These spaces are gorgeous despite being commercial, and provide tons of inspiration for residential applications. (These photos include Hotel Superbude, Pappa e Ciccia restaurant, No Fire No Glory coffee shop, the FvF + Vitra apartment, Hotel Das Stue, 25 Hours Wien Hotel)
