Project Berlin Fairytale Flat

After living in Berlin in the same flat for many years I finally moved into a new place in June. Of course, I did not know how my new flat would turn out, because it is always a question of luck to find the right place at the right time. I was expecting the worst. Living in Berlin, you learn how difficult it gets every year to find a flat that is affordable and perfect at the same time. Most people go for shared living so that they can afford to live in the popular districts. For me that was kind of out of question. I love to have my own space that I can decorate the way I love and make it feel my home that reflects me as a person. Sharing my flat would be as if Carrie Bradshaw shared hers in Sex and the City.

So, I gave up my rooftop flat with a sunny terrace for a much more spacious flat with a huge kitchen and a sunroom, that we call a “wintergarden” in german. Of course, all this space costs me more money. But it is worth it and still way cheaper than most comparable flats in Berlin. I still have a green and quiet view with many trees and lots of evening sun. Most Berliners can only dream about such a gorgeous view. The best thing about all this is, my flat is still central enough to reach Alexanderplatz in 15 minutes and Stadtmitte in 25 minutes. It gets even better: I am at the Airport in 20 minutes and at the Hauptbahnhof in 25 minutes.

There is still space for improvement, but honestly, for the rent I am paying monthly at the moment, this is just my dream flat! It is central, spacious, sunny and green at the same time. The rooms are not completely done. Some things such as plants, curtains, pictures and little details are still missing and will be completed within the next months. Nonetheless, I am presenting you some of the highlights of my place with my own taste for furniture and interior design. My favorite places are the kitchen, the bathroom and my sunny wintergarden. Enjoy!
