If you’re looking for the perfect mix of Scandi-inspired restraint, timeless design and a touch of warmth look no further than this Copenhagen apartment. The pieces in each room are selected for both form and function. The neutral palette is set off by pops of blue and green that make the white, airy space come alive. Aka, you want to walk in and never leave.
Case in point, the living room. It features a chic mix of timeless vintage like the Flag Halyard Chair and ubiquitous moroccan rugs. The room is punctuated by catching art, luxe textiles and just the right amount of found treasures that give the room personality without cluttering it. Hints of shine, from the cut glass Venetian mirror to the brass bar cart add just the right amount of glamour while a well-placed house plant grounds the space.
This cozy corner is the perfect spot to relax with a magazine or a glass of wine. The leather daybed (my continued obsession – I want this one) and all the cozy pillows and thick cashmere throw give off a homey vibe.
I love the bathrooms genius use of angled subway tile on the floor. It gives the small room a sense of movement.The dark grout pops, while the wood, woven accents and yet another plant give the space life.
In the bedroom linen bedding in shades of gray is topped with a plush cable knit that makes you want to crawl right into bed – and possibly never leave!
This apartment is also proof that white walls are neither boring nor cold. Instead, they set a beautiful backdrop for your world to unfold. When you have white walls, every piece feels like it’s meant to be appreciated individually – from the art to the light fixtures, even a simple side table takes on an intentional feel. It’s the ultimate opportunity to curate. It’s certainly what I’m trying to accomplish in our new house. Nothing stays simply because it’s already here. Nothing comes in unless it serves a real purpose and I really love it.
