As our stay in Berlin drew to a close, I found myself spending an unhealthy amount of time in KaDeWe, and was in danger of becoming a permanent fixture:
So I consulted the list I´d made before I left Australia of sights to see in Berlin, and noticed I´d been rather slack in writing just one - Villa Harteneck. The fact that some considerable time had elapsed, and I no longer knew to what these two words referred, prompted me to do an internet search. I then realised that I had read about Villa Harteneck back in early March in posts by two of my fellow bloggers - Suzy from Studio Annetta and Michelle from Just Imagine. Since I was so close, I decided to venture out to Grunewald on the outskirts of Berlin and, sure enough, found this beautiful building:
Villa Harteneck is a multi-purpose building which serves as a function centre, has design books for sale and sells furniture and other items, such as Fortuny lamps. I went inside, but didn´t think I should take photos, so you´ll have to be content with the outside, which is pretty stunning:
I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in interior design.
