Now that I have sung the praises of the large, airy 19th century Parisian apartments, I feel I should also mention apartments in Berlin. Some are in 19th or early 20th century buildings with the famous inner courtyards, but many warehouses have also been redeveloped. You will see that the Berlin property market is less afraid of modern architecture and interior design than the Paris one.

All seem a bit austere Marina. I think the fourth one, New York loft style is the best probably because I love NY. Hope your holiday is going well. Do you go to the Danube Delta which I love?
Sadly no Danube Delta this year, as we want to spend as much time as possible with my mother and she can’t travel much anymore. But there’s plenty to see and enjoy even so.
Irresistible post for me! Hard to choose between any of these, so light and airy, although I’ll need some snugly fitting blackout blinds for the bedroom.
I suspect most of the windows will have shutters or blinds, typucal for Continental Europe. Unfortunately, not my parents’ house. 😒
I’ll happy move in with you in Berlin!
They are all fantastic, though the first three look cozier….. and I’m sssoo glad they don’t have library-sized book-shelves all over the place hehe 🙂
I liked the snug top floor flat more than most of the other open plan apartments – large empty spaces suggest empty minds to me, is that wrong? – though the last slightly stark Art Deco one appeals too because of the style … and the generous shelf space.
Love these! I live in a top floor flat and as long as the roof is properly insulated then it’s fine – something I was very grateful for this week when the temperatures were so high! My flat used to be an oven, I dread to think what would have happened this week if they hadn’t redone the insulation last year. This is definitely the most boring comment I’ve ever left on a post, I do apologise Marina Sofia 😀
Oh, these all look so tempting, Marina Sofia! I’m a minimalist at heart, so they all appeal. And I love that airiness and space! Er – do you have room in the first one for one more person?
Oh, those are all so lovely and spacious – I think I may have to learn German and retire to Berlin…
I could happily move into any of these. They are a lot more airy and light than my friend’s apartment in the eastern zone of the city
Very nice but… a bit too stark and empty for me.
I love pocket doors so find the first apartment highly appealing. Some of the apartments in my aunt’s Bremerhaven building had large ones like that (built in the early 20th century). I miss Germany.
So, Berlin it will be?
I love all these apartments, for the space, the light and the high ceilings.
