Dangerous spaces

THE APARTMENT by The Line where everything is for sale. Dangerous spaces indeed.

Nooks and crannies

The biggest luxury in a kitchen? No not marble benches. No not top of the line European appliances. Storage and lots of it. A place for everything and everything in its place. That’s why I love all the nooks and crannies in this kitchen refurb by Hearth.

Kitchens you will not find in the burbs

Posted on Tue, 25 Nov 2014 by KiM

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’).


This kitchen (also by Gisbert) is definitively more toned down than the previous one. I am completely smitten, perhaps moreso than the first.

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.
