A mash-up of Brooklyn and Berlin aesthetics, Berlyn 65 from stylist Serap Bahadir is a curated shop filled with artisanal homewares, accessories, and jewelry found all over the world via Bahadir's extensive travels. The bright-white spot is stocked ceiling to floor with hand-woven Turkish towels—the most sought-after item. The towels are made on a loom and most are cotton, but Bahadir also carries bamboo blends and silk. Artwork, home accessories, and an array of chunky jewelry fill the rest of the space. The jewelry she stocks is bold: precious stones, such as turquoise and crystal, are soldered together with precious metals to create statement necklaces, rings, and bracelets. But the best testament to the quality of items inside Berlyn 65 is that Bahadir owns a version of most of what she carries. If she doesn't love it personally, she simply won’t stock it.
