Is Berlin the new Brooklyn? After perusing the German blog Freunde von Freunden (friends of friends), we're convinced.
Entrepreneur Ines Colmorgen and art director André Wyst have lived in their Berlin apartment for the past four years; Colmorgen owns a children's clothing store called Petite Boutique and André is the art director for Architectural Digest Germany, Intersection, and Anorak. We like the couple's approach to small-space living: stacks of magazines from André's collection, a small sewing studio, and minimal light fixtures.
