Home Tours

Modern Düsseldorf Home

May 7, 2010

I just spent a few inspiring hours with my friend and whenever I see her, I always feel like coming home and writing because she inspires me so much! I love being with friends who give me a lots of creative energy! So let’s see… how about a little home tour for you today? Well, it’s mostly a glimpse of just a few rooms but this home is so nice that I’ve been looking forward to sharing it with you for several days now. It’s located in Düsseldorf, Germany and I found it because one of the owners, graphic designer Andrea Schreiber, is a flickr contact of mine. She and her family, two teenage daughters and her husband along with Lotte their dog, reside here — she is originally from Bremen and landed in Düsseldorf for her studies and ended up staying there. I really love the architecture and though they just moved in and have a bit more decorating to do I think she’s well on her way to having a lovely home. See what you think… First let’s look at some of her graphic designs and then, her home.

If you like what you see, there are more photos here. Andrea likes to crochet in her spare time so some of the pieces that you see in her living room are by her own hand like the colorful crochet pouf above that I think is just the sweetest, don’t you?

Thank you so much Andrea for sharing glimpses of your home with us!

    I need to know what the plug in dog is for. Air purification? Robot toy?

    The pouf is absolutely phantastic – I knit, but not I’ll have a go at crocheting, I think.

    Beautiful, fun and fresh. I love that the lightness of the spaces feel beachy yet modern. Kuddos!

    Side note- what kind of a dog do you have? I have mix that looks just like yours except she is gray with the spotting and not black.

    PS: I looked it up – the “Schuhputzhund” is called “Benny Brush” and is produced by the Flötotto company.

    It sure looks likes a Large Munsterlander youngster to me. Got one myself! I loved the house but loved the dog best ;)

    Where did she get the sectional in the second to last photo?

  • Reply Karen May 8, 2010 at 3:50 am

    Not my taste at all, as I like old places with a little patina and a certain story-telling charakter. But I can see that she really had fun when decorating and furnishing her home, and that is what counts! It would be a shame if we all went for the same look :-)

    I love this home, it’s so bright and spacious. And as a purple-maniac I simply admire the purple wall.

    What a wonderful home, inside and out…thank you so much for sharing. So “mod” and colorful and charming. My mother was born in Germany, and seeing this, makes me want to go and visit Germany so much.

    I love her home! I already saw it on flickr a couple of weeks ago and i just love her couch and pillows. And her purple wall! Wow! thats kinda what i want in my living room some day.

  • Reply alex*modernkiddo May 10, 2010 at 9:19 am

    wow what an awesome home. those huge windows have me so envious!!!!!
    i especially like how white and clean the space is, but still has warm bits of color. It’s gloomy here in San Francisco today so I’m having major house envy!!

    And of course her work is fantastic too.
