Berlin, Germany, population 3.5 million.

Welcome to my home. Welcome to Mobit. Come on in.

Lisa Pippus is from Canada. She’s a style coach.

Framed artworks.

So I like an organic mixture of things. This is an old picture frame with my son on a beach on Vancouver Island, next to this lovely ad for an electricity company in orange and yellow.

I think on this I can really say that art is what you make it.

And here, we have my father’s artwork. These are little wooden animals that he made for my children. So they’re all here. They all love playing with animals, so I kept a plastic one.

Somalian cat made from Siberian wood.

So this is Fu.

Syrian pastries.

Right, and I’m learning a lot because Fu is an amazing cook. And it’s really wonderful to be in Berlin and realize that I can learn so much. Not only is she a wonderful young woman, but also learning about the Japanese culture, or how they eat, what they do.

Yeah, so it’s quite exciting.

Well, it’s been lovely having you here. I’ve got to go off and prepare something for work now. So thank you very much for coming into my home.
