Living in Style - How We Live visits the homes of creative workers, artists, and style icons all over the world and shares them with us via home stories.
ADRIANO SACK is an author and head of the style department at Welt am Sonntag. He lived in New York for several years, where he wrote books, founded the Internet platform and magazine ilikemystyle, drank too much tequila with artist Terence Koh in his brilliantly white studio, and talked about German expressionism with Tom Wolfe. His books have been translated into numerous languages. He moved back to Berlin in 2011 and finds the city much better than its reputation would suggest. Hamburg native DAGMAR VON TAUBE has called Berlin home for years. As chief reporter for Welt am Sonntag, she meets the great and special people, from Hillary Clinton to Roman Polanski, and creates portraits of them in incisive interviews. She fought about kitsch with Jeff Koons and was invited by Eliette von Karajan to her house in Saint Tropez for three days, where madame welcomed her in her pool-wearing only a black swim cap as the interview began. Von Taube was a correspondent in New York; and she packed gift baskets for stars like Aretha Franklin at high-end grocer Dean & Deluca. In 2009, teNeues published her photo book Berlin Now.
