All of this kitchen and bath talk makes me think of tile and the endless squares of nondescript porcelain that I encountered in my years as a renter. Then I remembered the design surprise I found in my Berlin sublet when I discovered tile decals in the bathroom. My Etsy search turned up the cutest decals, and sure enough, they are straight out of Deutschland.
Andrea is the illustrator behind Citoyennes de Berlin. Her water repellent and removable tile decals cost about $12 for four. We love the designs and appreciate the non-committal and affordable solution for making a generic bathroom or kitchen a little cuter and kid-friendlier. Check out Andrea's current selection at her Etsy shop and keep up with all of her latest projects at the Citoyennes de Berlin blog.
