Snapshots from Claudi and Tiger's lovely Berlin home

Tjoohoo! It's a beautiful day here in Malmö (hey, I'll take anything other than snow right now!). Yesterday I had such a fun day filming with German TV channel  DW-TV around the fascinating term  'lagom' (a Swedish word essentially meaning not too much, not too little: just right) set to air this Saturday. The TV crew were based in Berlin, which is one of my absolute favourite cities (have you ever been? - if not you must!). Today I thought I'd share the home of another Berliner: Claudi. Claudi is a photographer and blogger behind Do it, but do it now and regularly shares snapshots of her home, DIY ideas and fabulous places in Germany's hip capital city. Her home, which she shares with her feline friend Tiger (short for Tigerlily) is packed with vintage finds, mid-century pieces, handmade details and an abundance of plants. Let's take a peek....

Photography: Claudetta Böttcher / Do it but do it now.

Oh so lovely and relaxed! I particularly like the unusual pieces like the green chair in the kitchen and round shelves in the sitting room - so inspiring! Did anything catch your eye?

A few items from Claudi's home: source vintage crates hereblack letter board, Kay Bojesen monkey, this rug is similar (made to order!), blanket from Elmas Home

For more pics of her home, DIY ideas, and tips on Berlin (among other things) check out Claudi's blog (in German) and instagram. I've also been having a snoop around Claudi and her boyfriend's fab interiors shop Elmas Home - definitely worth a look!

You might also want to take a peek at these lovely spaces with a mid-century touch: a charming innercity home with soul, a Dutch home in an old tannery and a fabulous mid-century modern home in LA home - a few of my favourite homes! 

Have a lovely day!

  1. Any chance you could identify the glass-top nightstand? Thank you! I love your blog and check it every day!

    1. Thank you for your kind words about my blo - I'm just checking with Claudi on this :)

    2. Dear Cameron,
      it's from an old german brand called Opal, vintage and in the space age design :-)
      Hope that helps :-)

    3. Thank you Claudi - I love this night stand too - will definitely be looking out for one in the future.

  2. What's the idea of the books under the bed? How would you find the one you want to read? How would you clean under the bed?

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment. In a small space it's quite common to use space under the bed for storage. The piles look very neat so can easily be removed for cleaning. At a glance the majority look like back issues of magazines, however with the books it could be that the spines have been turned round for the sake of the photo?

    2. Dear Mary,
      I'm very bad in throwing away things - especially old books and magazines...And because of our small bedroom, I'm using it to cover the winter clothes (and other things, you don't really often need) under the bed. And Niki is right, it is really easy to clean :-)

    3. Thank you for clarifying Claudi! :)

    4. I've been struggling what to do with a huge stack of books and I think the under the bed thing is a great idea! I was trying to put in boxes and then in the attic but that gets so heavy and then almost impossible to find a book if you are looking for a certain one!

  3. Beautfil home! Love all the little details :-)

  4. It´s a lovely and very cozy home, with all that natural light, and the plants all around. My favorite picture is the by far the one of the dinning table and the cat sitting as if he was waiting to be served :). Thank you very much for sharing Niki!

  5. Hi there, I like that apartment a whole lot, it looks just right to me! And Claudi seems to be a fun person, I think she must have a good sense of houmour! Why? The quote "Man sollte viel öfter einen Wutanfall haben". Hits a nerve, definitely �� Means "you should throw a tantrum more often". I'm sure someone can translate it better, but I just liked that really!
    Byebye ��
