:: Swedish lifestyle in Berlin
Great discoveries are always found accidentally. So as I was strolling the city for a decent fabric store this week I came across Antik Affär, a shop selling swedish antiques like furniture, linens, paintings, tableware, fabric and curiosities from Sweden. All you need to revive a Carl Larsson painting.
Carl Larsson: Lazy Corner
This is not another lifestyle shop selling beautiful things for the already overdecorated home. This shop is an experience.
The owner, Patricia, a photographer, renovated the shop all by herself just a few months ago. The showrooms, formerly a brothel painted in dark red with showers in the backroom, are now decorated in typical scandinavian blue and white. There's a lot paying attention to every little detail. And it's done with heart, soul and dedication.
You really feel like Alice in Wonderland and found yourself in a perfectly decorated swedish country house. Of course all objects come directly from Sweden and Patricia knows a little story about everyone.
Make sure to indulge yourself to this very swedish experience. You find Antik Affär at Wielandstr. 45, just off Kantstrasse in Berlin.
