Magazinelike interior blogging

March 19, 2019

Warschauer Strasse is one of the loudest street in Berlin, super busy with traffic and in the Summer, drunk tourists keeping the residents awake.

Stepping into my building with the beautiful tiles and quite often trash lying around, happens sometimes that someone used it as a toilet as well. Thank you.

Most of the buildings in my area were built around 1900, imagine they survived two world wars. Amazed that some of the original glass decorations are still left.

The double doors to the left are our entrance and the one to the right is our neighbour’s toilet. The wall between our toilets is paper thin so not much privacy if you can imagine.

So much work put into every detail.

3 friends are meeting me on the way up the stairs, telling me the 70 steps are soon over. The one in the middle reminds me of Lille Skutt from my favourite cartoon as a kid. I remember when this came out. Parents went crazy.

Another friend, being a busy bee those days. Have you seen the short films on his instagram? I keep telling him to post more of his graphic design work, the logos and concepts he makes are so great. Will go to Gimme Gelato today and shoot more pictures of the place and show you what he and Ralf have done to the place + Ralf’s amazing gelato of course. Hope to get some in my belly.

Working on a new project for the blog as well, a self initiated one, that I hope you will find interesting. It’s about my friends and what they do for a living in this big city of ours. Made a long list of people to visit and take pictures of, I’m so excited already.

The blog title is ironic, yes.

    This is so gorgeous. It reminds me of the buildings I grew up with, the walk-up tenements of Chinatown and the LES in NYC. The details themselves are very different, but that feeling of living in a palimpsest is familiar, and so special. Thank you for sharing.

      People who visit often tell me similar things about growing up in NYC, Berlin somehow still has a touch of 70’s and 80’s NYC apparently. Sounds good πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing and introducing me to the word “palimpsest” <3
