Sarah Van Peteghem showcases local designers inside Berlin apartment

Van Peteghem, author of interior style blog   Coco Lapine Design, was asked by Berlin estate agents Fantastic Frank to style a turn of the century flat in Schoeneberg, Berlin. “Their designs have a very clear aesthetic and functional form, which contrasted very nicely with the delicate ornaments and the white waxed floors of the flat,” she   told Dezeen. “Staying in the French theme, in the living room I hung up a vintage map of France and used the Meta Side Table as a bar,” said Peteghem. Stackable modular shelving units –   Shift Shelf by New Tendency – display ornamental items and a white version of   Form Us With Love’s Plug Lamp. Taking advantage of nooks normally filled by   white goods, Van Peteghem framed   a bright   yellow plinth   in front of a kitchen alcove. Van Peteghem paired the new designs   with a selection of   repurposed items including flight attendant’s trolleys and vintage maps. Nearby, a potted basil plant in a crumpled brown paper bag   sits   on a   black wooden tabletop with pale edges. The area is lit by a pendant lamp with an industrial-style metal shade and a vibrant yellow flex. Wooden cooking utensils are arranged on a makeshift counter top   supported by a row of flight attendant’s trolleys. The vibrant green foliage of the planting is highlighted against the backdrop of monochrome   paintwork. In the entrance hallway off the living space, a black tepee-shaped hat stand contrasts the   white paintwork and panelled door frames. This table   rests on a black Masa Table Frame with angled legs and   sits in front of a blackboard wall decorated with   two monochrome palm prints by Peteghem. A monochrome cushion   in the shape of a mountain peak, named Herdubreid Mountain Pillow, softens a white chair with a spindle back. Drawings   of Paris landmarks by Swedish designers   Studio Esinam   hang on the wall above. A white   truncated light fixture by Stockholm designer   Thomas Bergman   is mounted on the ceiling overhead.
