A colourful loft in Berlin, Germany

Photography: Fantastic Frank

3-4 rooms; 150 sqm; €1.48m via Fantastic Frank
This refurbished Berlin loft puts a different take on minimalism: white has been foregone in favour of soothing colour gradients designed to relax and inspire. Each of the 150 sq m loft’s rooms has been given its own shade, and clean lines and minimalist shapes hone the sense of calmness inside the retreat. It sits atop a five-storey Wilhelminian style building constructed in 1900 and has 10-ft-high ceilings, wide plank wooden flooring, skylights and a private roof terrace with views of the TV tower. Get a closer look.
