Located in Berlin’s hip Friedrichshain—in the heart of the Simon Dach Strasse—artist Tina Gonsalves and chef Matthew Wild’s art-filled apartment doubles as a holiday rental when they’re in Port Douglas, Australia, where they split time. Four years ago, they moved in with a single suitcase and have spent the last four years renovating and outfitting their light-streamed prewar with eclectic-vintage furniture from the flea market across the street, curvy lamps, heavy velvet curtains, art from friends (as well as Tina’s own work), mix-and-match patterns and a gutsy color palette.
Sleeps four. The neighborhood is known as the last resort for Berlin’s alt sub-culture, and the street is lined with cafes, bars and restaurants, including a bakery, café and ice cream shop on the first floor of the building. $120 a night. Rent it at berlinartistapartment.com.
