For exactly ten years, the blogazine HERZ&BLUT has been telling inspiring stories about design, lifestyle and travel. The makers also regularly stage KPM pieces. Jules Villbrandt, Maria-Silva Villbrandt and Wilkin Schröder show why they are passionate about beauty, how they work and what you can learn from their styling during a visit to their Berlin studio Maison Palmé. An article from the fourth issue of our WEISS customer magazine.

The creative studio Maison Palmé is located in the Wedding district of Berlin. Beautiful visual worlds are created here on around 80 square meters on the second floor of an industrial ensemble from the 1920s. They are primarily created and photographed for our own blogazine HERZ&BLUT ( www.herzundblut.com ). These productions serve as #interiorgoals on the associated Instagram account, or as a pool of ideas and invite the viewer to give their own four walls a styling update.

Stylish trio: Jules Villbrandt (far right) founded HERZ&BLUT in 2010. Three years ago she brought her sister Maria-Silva Villbrandt and her college friend Wilkin Schröder on board. What unites everyone? The sense of beautiful things.

The Maison Palmé studio is a kind of modern cabinet of curiosities: over the years, in addition to many design pieces, numerous vintage objects have also moved in, making it possible to style very different living situations. A living room detail in Parisian chic, or should it be Scandinavian hygge? The Maison Palmé masters almost all types of productions, and some productions seem like a set construction à la Babelsberg. The constant change in the main room always creates new looks, and the varied atmosphere has an inspiring effect on work. There is therefore no uniform overall image of the studio - rather, the rooms radiate something mysterious and invite you to discover nooks and crannies in detail. A credo that also applies to the three creatives' respective homes.

Tip: New possible uses - stacks of books as a pedestal, cups as a vase.

The eye should wander, collect impressions and, in the best case, even capture ideas. Reproduction desired. Just not when it comes to design objects. Fakes and slightly modified replicas are an absolute no-go in the trio's work: “Good design is unique, and the original design characterizes the design. Every change from outside dilutes the actual intention. You can see and feel this immediately in the interior design.”

Eye-catcher on the windowsill: The bright white cockatoo sits enthroned next to large house plants and exudes a tropical feeling in every season.

Of course, vintage classics also find their well-deserved place and are an integral element in the ensembles and collages from HERZ&BLUT. Everything is allowed in the combinations and style rules can be thrown overboard. This creates playful “object neighborhoods” such as an old shot glass and the KPM porcelain tiger, which make the bathroom shelf a real eye-catcher.

Fresh flowers are almost indispensable for the three creatives. Whether from the weekly market or from your own garden: you can find a wide variety of arrangements in the studio

again. This love for the little details is also reflected in the projects for KPM. Vases, dishes, coffee mugs - it's the typical HERZ&BLUT twist that puts a distinctive focus on the respective products and is a perfect addition to the Wunderkammer in Wedding.

Tip: As impressive as it is simple - arrange only one type of flower (here mallow) in the vase, but lots of them.
