Hello Mrs Eve

July 2016

A graphic designer's midcentury home

Graphic designer Kea is the blogger behind German interior design blog Hello Mrs Eve, which she dedicates to her two main passions in life: writing and furniture - a cracking combo we say!

While Kea's essays and short stories focus on self discovery and slow living, her interior style is majorly influenced by Scandinavian and mid-century modern style. Since 2016 Kea has dedicated her blog entirely to sustainable design, to help others live beautifully but fairly and sustainably.

Kea lives with her husband and two cats in Wiesbaden in the Rhein Main area of Germany, and keeps a bolt hole flat in Berlin for urban living. Lucky girl!

Dive into Kea's beautiful midcentury living and discover her little black book of her two home towns.

A bit about yourself:

I’m a freelance graphic designer and illustrator, sustainable interior design blogger, proud cat mom, author and nature lover.

Where you live and who you live with:

I commute between Berlin and Wiesbaden, in Wiesbaden I live with my husband and our two cats in an idyllic suburb

Favourite/coolest item in your home:

My midcentury daybed! I keep falling in love with it again and again. It matches every color, cushion or blanket – a real classic!

Fail-safe decorating trick:

Less is more.

Don’t overdo it, take some favourite deco elements in similar colours but with different heights, add some matching flowers – that’s it!

First thing you thought of this morning:

How thankful I am for my meditation webinar I start with every morning at 7 AM.

A talent you wish you had:

Cleaning ;)

Advice to your younger self:

Dare to dream big. Don’t listen to anybody who says you won’t make it. Trust your inner voice and do what you love. Life is short, you only live once with your unique talents and gifts. Money is not as important as you might think. Appearance neither.

Favourite band of all times:

I can’t say I have one. I listen to music every day. From Fleetwood Mac to Take That - it depends on the mood.

Least favourite: tomato red

Best way to de-compress:

Take a walk in the forrest

A superpower you wish you had:

Oh, I wish I could beam myself to other places like Scotty did in Star Trek.

Cats or Dogs:

Come on ;)

Caaats, of course. I love it when they are purring on my lap or walk on their velvet paws through the house. Cat just make every room more comfortable!

Kea's Little black book of Berlin & Wiesbaden

Coolest thing about Berlin and Wiesbaden:

Berlin: The spirit, the feeling, that everything is possible
Wiesbaden: the closeness to the neighbouring forest

Where you like to hang out:

Berlin: Görlitzer Park
Wiesbaden: at the former small market square of our suburb

Favourite restaurant/ bar /café:

Top 3 local stores:

Berlin: Kilda nordic interior, Hausen, Buchholzberlin
Wiesbaden: midsommer, several second hand shops in westend

Top 3 online interior stores/brands:

Since I’ve decided to blog about sustainable interior only, its not that easy anymore. Unfortunately there isn’t a huge store with all the sustainable brands – I have to gather together all the single pieces and I'm planning to make a list on my blog with all the brands, that I’ve found so far.
