At Home: Lisa Van Houtem

Lisa is a true lover of her hometown Hamburg, but for some years now works in Berlin. Still she prefers to stay in the city by the harbour. You might think, that if someone only spends his workingdays in a city, the apartment might look like that – a conglomerate of random furniture highlighted by the huge suitcase in the middle of the room. Not so with Lisa, her small one bedroom apartment is furnished with a fine sense for details. She did not opt for IKEA and their plastic chairs, but to collect some gems from flea markets all around Berlin.

Of course, as you already noted, she dresses herself as equally subtle and beautiful – making her into one of the best dressed young women in Berlin I know. She always looks very elegant in impeccable compositions, whose details refer to the 1920ies. Other details of Lisa you might not expect: she loves Techno (the real thing), fast cars and St. Pauli, ok, the latter is kind of obligatory. Read her blog here.

    You’ve got it all wrong about IKEA. They have not “plastic chairs”. IKEA is style.

    She looks adorable, and is in the right city for techno!I wish my apartment (read: box) was big enough to put furniture in, even IKEA.
