Reader’s home – Martin’s Scandi apartment in Berlin

Posted on Mon, 24 Sep 2012 by KiM

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.

This is my idea of a perfect apartment. I really am liking all white paint lately….and I just finished painting my new house all bright colors a few months ago….great…

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!
