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.

Siren Lauvdal encore

A mood, a vibe, a certain something. Like a mumur, a ripple in the calm that builds and grows and reverberates. It's a flag, a marker, a passage that doesn't state the bleeding obvious but uses passion to tell the story. It's a photographer that takes light and bends it, traps it, caresses it to capture the mood, the meaning, the beauty. Images with an artist's eye. Photography by Siren Lauvdal. Gorgeous.

Yellows

A muted and almost monotone palette with pops of fluoro or grounded with black. Rustic and decayed juxtaposed with shiny and new. Organic with manmade minimalism. Over exposed and high contrast. It's a look we have come to associate with Scandinavian photographers and Danish photographic studio Yellows is a pin up for achieving the look. Editorial work for RUM magazine and commercial work for Light Years, Fredericia Furniture, Louis Poulsen and Bo Concept just to name a few. Gorgeous, edgy photos full of inspiration.

Dinesen

Delicious. Divine. Dinesen. A Danish flooring company that sources floor boards that are so beautiful, so perfect that the best in the business must have them in their designs. Think Anoushka Hempel, John Pawson and almost any Scandinavian architect you can name. I stumbled across them when I found the MacDonald Wright Architects website. There, lurking in the links, was a company that puts the wood in my flooring love. Oh bad, bad pun but folks if I could marry a piece of oak or Douglas fir I'd tie the knot with these planks.
