Friday Fun: Viennese Apartments

After Paris and Berlin, how could I leave out my ‘home’ city of Vienna? Of course, I did NOT grow up in any of these fancy Viennese apartments, but I did have some friends who were housed in old Viennese Palais – which didn’t look at all like this back in the day, but were often run-down and full of drainage issues. Completely unaffordable nowadays, of course.

Most flats are completely unfurnished when rented or sold, but this gives you an idea of the volumes and the fancy light fittings. From coreal.at

The light fitting is not so fancy here, but I love the flowing spaces and the parquet flooring, from Willhaben.at
Here’s what a furnished one might look like – I am in love with the stove though! From Luxus Palais Wohnungen.

Sadly, most of the old buildings have been modernised beyond recognition. This one is just about acceptable (although hell to heat up in winter). From Falstaff.

But this penthouse seems a step too far, despite the dreamy views. From European Real Estate.

I have to admit I quite love this one, though… From Cuubuus.

But my dream home would be a flat in one of those inner courtyards, which were considered more modest back in the day, with lots of greenery. This one is a hotel now, Schreiner’s. From Hotelguru.

  1. Oh, they are lovely, Marina Sofia!! There’s so much you can do with the right space and light, isn’t there? I think I like the second one best; I really love the light and the ‘open’ feel of it. The rest are beautiful, too, though.
