Let me take you to a beautiful and lush urban jungle in Berlin today. Today’s home tour is really one of my all-time favorites on Instagram – the home of Theo. Whenever one of her pics pops up on my Instagram feed, I am getting really big eyes. Her Berlin home is truly inspiring. It is a personal space carefully curated with meaningful details. Not to mention the plants. Unfortunately I had no time to visit Theo personally, but I managed to organize a little home tour just for you. Shall we discover Theo’s urban jungle in Berlin? Let’s roll!

Theo’s Berlin apartment is not only home to 100+ plants but to her partner and two cats, too. And the plants play a crucial role in this warm home: What used to be Theo’s passion turned out into a mutual passion for both herself and her partner. They both share the plant love and have even defined areas of responsibility. While her boyfriend takes care of the plants on the balcony and in the kitchen, Theo is responsible for the rest of the apartment. And my favorite part of this plant love story is phrased by Theo herself: “He tends to bring me new plants every now and then. I think this is love.” I can only add: I am pretty sure this is love!

When Theo and her partner moved into their Berlin home, they sealed and sanded all walls by themselves. It was a hell lot of work but fun too. The result is awesome: the walls have a used look with marbled effects. Furnishing the home was also a flowing process. Most furniture pieces are thrifted via eBay or sourced at local thrift shops. Additionally, many pieces are hacked and thus made unique. The result is a beautiful, personal and unique home full of stories.

Now let’s talk about their favorite room in the apartment. I bet you will not guess it! Their favorite room is the pantry! Theo emphasises that she could not live in an apartment without a pantry (or balcony and tub for the record). Nowadays it is pretty rare to have an apartment with a pantry as most older apartments are being refurbished and pantries get sacrificed for the sake of bigger bathrooms. Hence, I guess Theo will stay in her current home for quite a while!

Personally I think that Theo’s apartment is a perfect example of an effortless European style. It is not a home that follows style trends and dictates. Instead, Theo follows her guts and feelings, collects, repurposes and buys vintage. The result is a warm home that speaks of the personality of its owners. And honestly, these are the best and most beautiful homes to me. I hope you enjoyed today’s little home tour!
