This is an exciting period for Angelika; alongside the recent launch of her own label, Angelika – Custom-Made Books, the Berlin based publisher is no stranger to the creative and lifestyle scenes with enviable close ties to the worlds of architecture, photography, art, interiors, travel and culture.
So the sidestep into the world of interiors comes as no surprise. Her own Berlin atelier has been featured on countless interviews, revealing an aesthetic eye of authenticity, intellect, curatorial simplicity and an edge of Bohemia, attributes that can be experienced first hand in the newly-crowned ANGELIKA SUITE at the family owned Der Seehof.
The setting is fitting as Der Seehof is a bit of an insiders’ bolthole. A deliciously eclectic creative pad that tries not too hard and is a slow-lane natural hub for fellow artisans – it also has a fabulous acclaimed restaurant, HECHT.
The suite itself is bathed in natural daylight reflected across the chalked white walls and wood planked flooring, a subtle canvas of simple elegance that echoes a sense of retreat. Clever interventions courtesy of designer pieces and aged antique desks play host to a “watery” visual installation of Ophelia, inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and a series Sisters & Rosalie the Owl, created by celebrated German photographer, Kirsten Becken.
Angelika triumphs in narrating the simplistic beauty of Der Seehof’s lakeside location while ushering in a brush of boho lifestyle and adding an injection of non-self importance. This is a strong, soft style narrative that demonstrates her perceptive vision of what works. Wonderful.
