Berlin is an enchanting city with an incredible and turbulent history. Its Western half once an island in a sea behind the iron curtain, Berlin still bears the marks of a once-divided city-they have become an integral part of its personality.
Since the reunification, the city has experienced an extraordinary rebirth and developed into a veritable cultural and political melting-pot, making it one of the most diverse and exceptional cities in the world. Full of creative types, and with a bustling international community, Berlin is naturally home to a unique range of interiors which reflect the city’s mix of Eastern and Western influences.
From the home of the Love Parade’s founder to a Turkish cafe, via a garden house, hotel, house boat, bordello, artist’s loft, rabbi’s home, and much more, Berlin Interiors offers an inspiring view of the city and its inhabitants.
