German blog Herz und Blut is full of inspiration, from fashion and food to travel and DIY. Our favourite part of the site though, is the ‘Homestorys’ section; a selection of home tours from some of Berlin’s coolest apartments. Germany’s coolest city, Berlin is a hub for artists, designers, and all-round creative types, and this creativity doesn’t stop at the home.
Bringing a different style aesthetic from other European cities, these Berlin apartments are minimalist, yet more eclectic and eccentric than the kind you typically find in Scandinavia. Walls are left with bare plaster or wallpaper is ripped off to show off what lies beneath, giving a raw and unfinished feel. Retro and modern furnishings sit side by side, fusing eras to result in something that is fresh and contemporary, while textures and prints are mixed to create a homely, less ‘styled’ interior.
