Candy colours give this historic Berlin apartment a joyful feel

Positive pastels

This Berlin property really shows its colours: it’s been given a top-to-toe colour concept courtesy of Farrow & Ball that champions positivity.

Located in the city’s Prenzlauer Berg neighbourhood, the second-floor apartment dates from 1895 and its period details – ceilings stuccos, solid wood doors, parquet flooring and original brass fittings – have been enlivened with the pastel colour scheme that uses subtle shades of salmon pink, pistachio, sand and mustard.

Pastel colours are commonly associated with positivity and are said to evoke feelings of joy, playfulness and growth. Rooms are daubed in their own unique pastel scheme, create a subtle colour shift when peeking through the length of the apartment, where rooms are arranged enfilade.

The colourful bolthole on Greifswalder Strasse is offered for sale via Fantastic Frank Berlin for €3.5m. It is serviced by three separate entrances and balconies, suggesting the 326 m² property could be divided, either as a live/work space or shared offices, by its new owner.
