Cookie Magazine Home Tours
Speaking of design in Berlin, check out this Berlin apartment via Cookie magazine. Michele Reeb and family occupies a beautiful apartment there that I just love. These are very typical apartments in northern Germany (I've not been to the south, so I can't comment as to what they are like in say, Munich), high ceilings, spacious, wood or pergo flooring, large windows. It's what the average Bostonian or New Yorker could only dream of finding. And these apartments are so affordable which makes everything that much more appealing. Here's a glimpse of Reeb's space below, you'll have to click over to Cookie magazine to see the rest.
Cookie has a slew of inspiring home tours from their readers up on their website if you have a moment to browse them today. They have a nice collection over there.
I especially enjoyed the five-story pagoda home of John and Cynthia Hardy in Bali (that bed!), Elisabeth Dunker's kids' rooms in Gothenburg, Dutch bag designer Esther Veereschild's place in the Netherlands, and Stephanie Congdon Barnes in Portland.
One thing I notice in all the stylish homes I come across is a beautiful array of artwork in kids' rooms. After noticing this for a long time now I decided to write about it today over at Real Simple so if you're interested in reading about Art in Kids' Rooms I'm sure you'll find this helpful.
