A Berlin Illustrator’s Effortlessly Stylish Home

Friday, October 8, 2010 · 2 Comments

Sarah Illenberger‘s Berlin apartment was recently featured on design blog Freunde von Freunden. Illenberger is a “3-D” illustrator and designer (not exactly sure how that translates from German?!). She was an only child raised in Munich among a super- creative group of family friends. Sarah left Germany to study graphic design at St. Martins in London.

Illenberger’s home has the typical European architectural details (super tall ceilings, huge windows that open onto terraces) that make us Americans swoon. Sigh. But it’s Sarah’s laid-back yet sophisticated style that is a real standout. You can tell she doesn’t take decorating too seriously and is not afraid to mix furniture and accessories as she sees fit. As a result her home has tons of unique personality and is the kind of place you’d visit and never want to leave.

    Love the eclectic relaxed feel here. I am on the look-out for inspiration- our home now has the ‘before’ look! Thank you for these!X
