We've been admiring Berlin design from afar it seems forever. Of late, when Remodelista editors Sarah and Christine separately took off for the city—Sarah and family are there all spring—we decided it was time to join them. Stay tuned for a week of the latest from Germany, precision-made kitchens and bohemian guest rooms included.   Above: Oak Cutting Boards by German design firm e15 . Watch for Sarah's Berlin finds all week. Here's one of her letters home: "People walk or bike everywhere, graffiti is all-pervasive, sneakers are the shoe of choice (forget heels), and when the sun shines, everyone spills onto the river banks and sidewalks with beers in hand (it’s legal to drink in public, even on trains). Technology is absent in public (it took me a few days to notice that people aren't glued to their phones); they linger in cafes and there is a collective sense of enjoying the day-to-day, not racing through time. It’s a rich and layered city with a heavy history, and even though I'm here for more than a month, it’s still not enough." Monday Above: In the first of our Kitchen posts this week, Julie presents Berlin designs in spic-and-span bright white . Tuesday   Above: On Tuesday, meet the Rolls-Royce of mattresses , made by hand by a fourth-generation Berlin mattress maker specializing in horsehair stuffing. (In the meantime, see more options in  Editors' Favorite Mattresses  and read our wellness guru Jackie Ashton's 10 Secrets for a Better Night's Sleep .) Wednesday Above: For this week's 10 Easy Pieces , Izabella presents German-made cleaning tools. And for their countertop companions, go to 12 German-Made Kitchen Essentials . Thursday Above: Sarah's best find to date? The Plain English of Germany: a Berlin company specializing in classic kitchens with modern edge . Friday Above: On Friday, Margot pays a House Call to two creative Swedes in their Berlin fixer-upper: illustrator/blogger Sandro Juto and graphic designer/artist Johan Pergenius.
