Time for a giveaway! This week on decor8 I’m hosting two giveaways so expect another one on Thursday where you can win some pretty amazing wallpaper. Today Yumi & Laurie is giving away ONE organic blanQuette manufactured with environmentally sound materials and manufacturing techniques (readers select style and size) valued at up to $235. To enter, simply comment below with an answer to the follow question…

Question: Imagine you are snuggled beneath this blanket looking through a design book. Tell me, in as much detail as you’d like, what book you’d love to read that isn’t currently out there. In other words, what is missing in design books that you’re picking up these days? What would you like to see more of? Particular sections, topics, people? etc.

Only one entry per person. Winners will be announced on Thursday at noon EST.

Thank you Yumi & Laurie for this great giveaway!

Gorgeous Berlin Apartment

February 3, 2009

Oooh! How could I have missed this gem of a post over at El beso blog? You have to visit El beso to see all of the photos but I love this Berlin apartment owned by interior designer Alexander Stutz and movie producer Gerald Backhaus. They discovered this 1906 apartment in east Berlin and after loads of restoration they revealed its original art nouveau bones.

I love Berlin. Especially living like this in Berlin.
