After the careful core renovation of a listed modernist apartment in the Berlin architecture of the 1930s, the conceptual design of the rooms could take place. The starting point was the clients' passion for traveling to Asia and, very specifically, the dining room chairs, which were unmistakably from the 1980s. They were to outlast the half household clearance associated with the refurbishment. Refurbished and the seats covered with a geometric patterned fabric from LELIEVRE https://lelievreparis.com/, their reminiscence of Art Deco comes into its own - add a chinoiserie wallpaper from MINDTHEGAP https://mindtheg.com/en/products/wallpaper.html curtain fabrics with large banana leaves from SAHCO https://www.kvadrat.dk/en/sahco - and the charm of a Chinese teahouse is perfect - add fabrics from DESIGNERSGUILD https://www.designersguild.com and KVADRAT https://www.kvadrat.dk/de.
Because of the existing furniture inventory and numerous bookshelves, the color scheme draws attention to the ceilings, which still have the original coving. The colorful wall design also gives the apartment a cohesive perspective, which is supported by the merbau parquet flooring installed throughout. In the kitchen, the tiled floor discovered under old PVC was refurbished and integrated into the overall composition.
