Romantic German Home

March 28, 2011

Would you like to see romantic and sweet corners of a German home today? This inspiring space belongs to blogger Yvonne Bauer (aka Frl.Klein on Flickr) who is married with two daughters living outside of Munich. She likes to combine things that she finds at flea markets with brand new items from some of her favorite stores. She also loves flowers and ethnic touches along with products from Danish brand Tine K Home.

Yvonne also has antique furniture that was handed down to her husband from his family that she loves very much. She feels that the eclectic mix of everything living together, cozy, in one space makes for the perfect home. She does not consider her look to be of a certain style, though as an American living in Germany I think it’s representative of the country style that is clean, very white with modern lines, a touch of the ornate, lots of texture and an attention to detail that is prevalent in Scandinavian country styles with a touch of German country combined. Here in Germany we have tons of magazines catering to this style of decoration so it’s no wonder that Yvonne is inspired by books, magazines and blogs for visual eye candy. I don’t know if you’ve ever given much thought to which room in your home is your favorite but Yvonne views her most inspiring room as her kitchen because its the hub of activity and, “I love to cook and chill out there,” she says. From the looks of this table setting below, it’s obvious that she puts a great deal of love and care into meal planning and presentation which is so inspiring to me because I only wish I had the time to lay a table like this on a regular basis… It’s something I aspire to though – what about you?

      @Elisa – Pick up Living And More, Landliv, Creative at Home, We Love Living and many other magazines — you’ll see it for sure. We have lots of stores that carry things in this style to, at least in Hamburg and Hannover – not sure about the rest of the country for that.

    Lovely photos and the style just like living in heaven, so serene! I find it so much easier to find beautiful antiques in Europe and the style is so much different than anywhere else in the world.

    that basket in the last image is great!

    Gorgeous – white on white with a dash of colour here and there is always dreamy. Only 4 sleeps until your book is launched here in Australia – looking forward to it! Are you coming out for a launch?

  • Reply juliette March 29, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    fun fun – new German blog to practice my Deutsch with during my lunch break… =)

    I definitely see elements of this style in the Deko shops, but it usually gets pushed more into a ‘shabby chic’ sort of presentation here in central Germany…and sadly it’s not catching on fast enough IMO!

    Absolutely gorgeous! Her home feels like a breath of fresh air – welcome Spring!! And I totally agree with you Holly, laying out a table setting is such a lovely tradition and it’s something I am trying to do a bit more often because it makes the everyday feel special and beautiful :) xo Laura
