If German interior designers have a genius, it? for mixing modern with vintage finds and timeless classics to create looks that you don? see anywhere else in the world. Their cultural cachet is captured in the 21 projects that rose to the top of a juried residential design competition by Munich-based Schoner Wohnen, Europe? leading lifestyle magazine. Better than Instagram, the book includes interviews with the designers, who share the kind of fresh, eclectic design thinking that transcends trends. Project locations range from Hamburg in the north to Munich in the south but linger in Berlin, which has been called the creative capital of the world and is home to a diverse horde of designers from all over the globe. Join the editors on a tour of these joyful and seemingly effortless spaces. There are no rules, just an invitation to rediscover the sensuous, timeless things we have known since childhood.
