Beautiful Home

The NY Times has an ongoing “Great Homes and Destinations” feature, and today’s home was from Berlin. A beautifully modern, restored space that served as a laundry for 100 years. I’ve known that Germans have a great eye for design, but perhaps not as much for whimsy or color.  But this house scores on a number of levels, and wins big with a fabulous ‘Robin Hood Fox’ sculpture by painter Daniel Richter.  Just look at it! The fox has a couple of injuries that have been wrapped, and he’s using a stick as a cane. His green cap is artfully perched on his head, with his face holding an expression of indignity and pride.  I love it.  He takes his place among beautiful hand-made couches that bring warmth and sensibility into the space.  Gorgeous.
