When Sports Even amp;odd Port Active Melange Shirt Tawny EgpTwqg walks into her one-bedroom apartment in the Neukölln neighborhood of Berlin, Germany, a sense of calmness and gratitude embraces her. “It’s the first place away from home I got to call my home,” she explains. Maggie has lived here for nine years, during which she’s turned the post-war 60s home into her personal haven. For over 10 years, Maggie owned Rag and Bone Man, a vintage shop and cafe in Neukölln that served as a bustling hub for creatives, freelancers and small business owners. She also founded Neukölln Schatzkarte, a treasure map highlighting small businesses in her neighborhood. Today, Maggie works as a botanical stylist and creativity mentor in both Berlin and London, where she grew up. After the success of her “Crown Your Glory” floristry workshop series as well as Poems and Posies, her pioneering sustainable flower business, Maggie set up The Greenhouse Mentality in 2017, an organization for progressive, holistic mental wellness and health. Through her numerous projects, Maggie has become a prominent and supportive figure in Berlin’s creative community.

With her focus on floral arrangements and well-being, it’s no wonder that Maggie’s home reflects just that. Ever since moving in, she has felt a strong connection to the energies in each room in her home. To emphasize and project various feelings throughout the apartment, Maggie has opted for colors that suit different moods — calming peach for the walls, creativity-inspiring yellow for the kitchen, and jade green doors for good luck. “Colors can create feelings and emotions and transport you to a different place or time,” Maggie also tells us. Besides floral arrangements, which you’ll find adorning each corner of the 540-square-foot apartment, vintage treasures from dresses to furniture make Maggie’s home the relaxing and inviting space she’s always dreamed of. “I’m very spontaneous, and I go with my gut feeling when deciding to change things,” Maggies says, “But most of all, I want people to feel happy in my home.” — Sofia
