Oh Soho House! You are the epitome of style and the cause of my wicked decor-envy! Every time I step into the next chic spot to join this ever-expanding group of luxury bolt holes I have to suppress my urge to steal every light fitting, smuggle out the cushions and blatantly rip-off every style detail in my own boring Victorian terrace (which we all know won’t look half as fabulous!). The newest addition to the stable is Soho House Berlin, which started life as a department store in 1928, was occupied by the Communist Regime until the mid 50s, then remained derelict – until now. Featuring boutique bedrooms, a cowshed spa, club room, rooftop pool and this Autumn, a Cecconis, it’s once again a signature, innately cool mix of old and battered, elegant and industrial. Envious? Moi?
