Some people are effortlessly cool. Some interiors are effortlessly cool. Some cities are effortlessly cool. When these three elements combine the result is nothing short of spectacular! This project, the Berlin apartment of Emmanuel de Bayser, French owner of the uber-chic The Corner Berlin store, is one such example.
De Bayser is off the mindset that the home is a reflection of who are you as a person and should be a comfortable place to repose and relax. With this in mind he sought to create an interior that could hold his impressive furniture collection and while at the same time be a place that he could meditate. The result is a calm palate of natural tones in the main living areas with a mix of mid-century and Scandinavian furniture. In the bedroom, the warm timber panelling is offset by the use of colourful art and accessories. In this room in particular, emphasis and definition is given to the impressive five metre (!!) high ceilings with the timber panelling stopping well short of the ceiling.
Throughout, the interior continually stays true to de Bayser’s manta of reflecting the owner and being a space for meditation. Person, interior and city: all effortlessly cool.
