Entering Mireille and Simon’s rambling, open-concept living space, it’s easy to forget for a moment that you’re standing on the top floor of a Deco-era building situated just north of Berlin’s Tiergarten and Brandenburger Tor. With its massive windows, towering cacti in bright vessels, and abundant light, the vibe of their home is warm and relaxed, cozy and inviting — perhaps more evocative of the North American West Coast than Northern Germany.
