DESIGNER MAISONETTE IN STUTTGART

A recent assignment for The Wall Street Journal brought me into this playful apartment, whose owners are a designer and an architect - and can't you tell! Creativity jumps at you at every turn, a play with colors, materials, lights and curiosities, not to mention the many art pieces from around the world, that Peter Ippolito and Stefan Gabel have collected. Let's take a tour!
