Entries in Danish (43)
I am up to my eyeballs in paint as I work on transforming my living room, and I would just like to say thank you to all those who told me to lose the mahogany trim. While I am still not sure about my entry way (where the majority of the wood work is) I am really happy to see the mahogany gone in the living room. I still have alot of work to do but photos to come ASAP. During a short break yesterday while working on the trim, I came across these 2 residences that I fell in love with. The first is a beautiful old farm in Denmark that has been totally renovated and filled with flea market finds. It has a really lovely neutral colour palette. (Via Femina) The other is a small apartment in Barcelona that used to be a series of dark, cramped rooms. Sergi Pons Architects created an open floor plan and inserted a white cube in the centre to house the kitchen and bathroom. Such stunning original stone walls and ceramic tile ceiling, and the result is a successful marriage of modern and rustic. (Via Living)
This beautiful home was recently featured in Nuevo Estilo, a perfect blend of light and dark (although I personally would add a bit more dark). Built in 1898 and located on the outskirts of Copenhagen, it is home to Sofie and Frank Christensen Egelund and their 4 children. (You will notice several Vipp pedal bins around - Sofie currently runs the company that her grandfather created). I love the shocking contrast of the dark kitchen - what a gorgeous colour.
I have two huge days at work ahead of me. A wedding, a breakfast, a birthday high tea with a complete reset for each. It's times like these I wish I worked in an office again instead of catering and events planning. Cue the daydream music ... perhaps an office like this one by Danish design firm Søren Rose Studio.
