Plants, Art and Design in a Beautiful Berlin Apartment

Why, hello there! While last week's posts were very much about the Swedish country home, I thought I'd kick off the week with a city dwelling. After all, we can all dream about a romantic home in the countryside like Beata's or Maria's - tbut he majority of us are likely to live more urban! So, let's head to Berlin today and take a tour of Igor Josif's wonderful flat! 

Igor is a dear friend of mine (we've met at many events over the years and even once went on a tour to Transylvania together!). I have always admired his talent and eye for design and have both of his lovely books on my shelf - Urban Jungle and Plant Tribe. I've also featured his past home on My Scandinavian Home, so you might well recognise the name! 

Igor recently moved into this beautiful flat in Berlin with his husband and the space has become the perfect haven for his studying (Igor recently returned to university to study Classical Archaeology and Art History. And of course, in true Igor style,  it's packed with plants, cool art, fab lighting and design! 

Let's dive in! 

Beautiful! And so unique. 

There are so many beautiful items in Igor's flat. If you'd like to know the source, head on over to Igor's instagram - he often tags the brands which is really helpful! 

Don't miss the tour of Igor's previous apartment too - you can really see how his style (and trends) have evolved over the last six years! 

Is there anything that stood out to you? If so, I'd love to hear your thoughts as always. 

Happy Monday friends!

  1. I admit to being a maximalist, but this home really spoke to me. I love everything about it.

  2. So much great design; the rooms are artful and cohesive. I was admiring all the great plants, what great specimens they are and then saw that he’s written books on plants, so the expertise is evident! Love the graphic nature of the artwork.

  3. Love the chair by the bed...

  4. Igor has a great sense of style. I like that the warmer wood tones in floors are starting to become more popular--for a long time (in the US, at least), they were considered to be a big design "no", but I like it when paired with cooler tones.

  5. I immediately fell in love with the cute kitchen.

  6. Such a beautiful place! Can you tell me where the black lamp in the kitchen is from? First picture. Thank you so much.
