Roam If You Want To
Recently, I’ve been surprised by why the blog for Roamers Berlin hasn’t been getting more attention. I mean, their pictures are gorgeous, both of the food and the interior. (I’m just going to focus on the interior.)
So check out the photograph above. See the lovely, vintage, industrial desk chairs? Have you ever laid eyes on such chairs? Seating diversity thrills me. Really, it does.
I also love the simplicity of their decor. Succulents and sugar bowls never looked so good on a café table. And have you noticed the rustic timber molding contrasting with the stained concrete floor?
How is it that these succulents are evoking my cute response? They are so cute! I want to pinch them while crying out, “sheyne punim*!”
The design here is excellent, in that the plants are size appropriate for the tables and in pretty containers that are both rustic and stylish (matching the rest of the café’s decor).
That desk lamp is the coup de grâce–I admire how time-worn it looks, but keeps on shining. I feel the same way about succulents, actually–that they’ve adapted beautifully to thrive in inhospitable environments.
The bar and front counter is incredible, and many customers have noted how it reminds them of American cafés (especially the ones in Portland, Oregon). Notice the use of unfinished wood, quirky collections, and vintage typewriter and camera? I think this German coffee shop would be at home in San Francisco’s Mission District or anywhere hipsters and connoisseurs of handcrafted goodness abound.
Check out their blog and give it some sugar (and drool over their food pics).
And if you’re in Berlin? Go.
