This time our vintage interior peeps series heads over to Berlin to visit a fabulous vintage flat which has been loving furnished with treasures from the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies creating a stunning, modern family home.

Katja is an avid collector of vintage designs. She shares her vintage flat with her husband, little daughter and two cats. Their flat has been furnished with a mix of design classics from the Fifties to the Seventies as well as plenty of accessories from Katja’s favourite decade – the Fifties.

The wallpaper in their hallway is from the Sixties, while the small Fifties shoe wardrobe has been a  junk shop find. Just above it is a small wall ornament by German china manufacturer Cortendorf.

The living room cabinetwas designed by a Danish furniture maker and produced in 1958, while the small bookshelf has a red resopal surface and is one of Katja’s favourite pieces. It’s also from the Fifties and an eBay find.

The dining room chairs are a mixture of ‘ant’ chairs by Arne Jacobsen and a tulip-footed Sixties find. The white vases are a small part of Katja’s vast collection and mostly from flea markets. The Sixties Eames Rocker was bought in Paris.

The amazing pastel-coloured kitchen storer was a Christmas present from Katja’s husband, it holds her favourite  milk jugs, which are by Melitta. Katja also owns the matching mugs and plates, although not a full set.

The Tomado shelf in the kids room was a present from a friend in the Netherlands.  The kids chairs are Seventies original Casalinos by Alexander Begge and the Fifties table is from the junk shop around the corner.

Their little daughter sleeps in this beautiful cradle, an heirloom, in which Katja used to sleep in as a baby.
