A home is where the art is

Art makes the soul This amazing space belongs to a landscape architect Guido Hager who lives in Berlin. Pictures by Helenio Barbetta. I have to agree with Yellowtrace comments on the apartment though. Yes, it is a bit weird that it is no plants when it belongs to a landscape architect and yes it is not a very personal touch to this place. But what I like about this apartment is the space itself. I live in an old apartment with moldings and original floorboards like this. But this flat is just top notch. Look at the roof structure and the floor, so beautiful.  But I dream of being able to have more wall space. For me, my collection of prints and arts over the years is what makes my home – my home. And like Yellowtrace also comments this man living here is not an art collector, but I do not think you should overthink your collection of art. Buy what you like and it does not have to be a concept behind everything. Sometimes you just like what you like. Like I said. A home is where the art is.

 

IDEAS TO STEAL FOR THIS FLAT: 

  1. Buy the art that YOU like, you are the person who is going to live in it!
  2. The mix of modern furniture and art in a classic style apartment = perfect combo!
  3. Having the same floor throughout the whole apartment ties it all together.

I discovered this home on one of my favorite blogs Yellowtrace, and it almost took my breath away.
