An Edgy Berlin Home, Full of Contrast


Is it me or has it been a while since we were in Berlin? Given that it's only a six-hour drive away (plus ferry) from Malmö - I kind of miss that German city. Such is life right now, I guess. But nothing can stop us from paying a virtual visit, right?! So, today I'm taking you on a trip to Berlin, for a peek behind the facade of a building in the beautiful Schöneberg district. Nadine Engels lives with her husband and their ''little street dog'' Coockie (also the name of her popular instagram feed). The magnificent apartment is characterised by staggeringly high ceilings and exposed brick walls. But there's something entirely unique about the space too. Think raw, edgy walls, a touch of graffiti, pops of neon and wonderful contrasts throughout. Welcome to Nadine and Coockie's world! 


We did a lot of the renovation ourselves, and love the charm of the old building - even if it creaks everywhere!" - Nadine. 



"We were lucky to discover the beautiful dual-toned concrete wall when we removed the wallpaper, the only thing we added was the 'Miau' - which we did before our dog moved in....'' - Nadine.

I love the way the Tom Dixon copper round pendant light* contrasts with the exposed concrete wall!


The Walton Ford print is from an exhibition a few years back at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark (I remember going to see it!). The poster is still available in the museum webshop here


I love how Nadine has hung a Ferm Living Mirage Blanket* on her bedroom wall - it makes for great art! It's not the first time we've seen Ferm Living used in this way - remember this Berlin home with a Merge rug*

This linen bedding* is similar to the one seen. 

There are so many striking spots in Nadine's home, don't you think? I particularly love the bedroom and dining room! 

Is there anything that stood out to you?

Shall we take a little trip down memory lane and visit a few other Berlin apartments? I am always inspired by:

A lovely, budget-friendly Berlin pad (check-out the DIY fireplace!). 

Have a lovely day friends!

  1. Amazing eclectic home with everything well balanced - crystal chandeliers, industrial/factory walls, gypsum friezes, colorful hand-made carpets, modern elements (standing lamps, table), touches of red colour (in macrame) against the black walls. Love it!

  2. I wonder why the wall would be half blue and half grey in the first place? It's a lovely apartment. This reminds me I have two Indian rugs I want to hang on my walls. Thanks, Niki.

  3. The texture of the concrete wall in the dining room with the contrast of the beautiful mounding is visually exciting. I also love the dark lower kitchen cabinets. And the pup is so, so cute!
