my scandinavian home: A striking Danish home with a calm feel

A striking Danish home with a calm feel

Tuesday, 27 January 2015

The 'Sense of Scandinavia' is built 'of vast landscapes and raw seasons, of cosy shared moments and the world's happiest people' so says Scandinavisk.  And if the Danish candle company owner Shaun Russel and his wife Lene's house is anything to go by, this is most definitely true. Located in Copenhagen, this calm space is the perfect shelter from the winter storms and light a candle or two. Not only does the brown and white schemed space have amazing bones with high ceilings and original parquet flooring, but the couple have carefully selected treasured design items and combined them with antique and vintage finds from which to enjoy it. And of course, there's that incredible grand piano...

Could you be the happiest of people here? I certainly could!

A few things I know and love: Eames RAR armchair, series 7 chair (currently on sale!), Super Ellipticle table, try Etsy for vintage filing cabinets and keep an eye on LiveAuctioneers for leather sofas. try Farrow & Ball Mahogony paint to get a similar effect as the striking hallway.

Anything that catches your eye?

Other beautiful and inspiring Copenhagen spaces include this apartment in unexpected colours,  an artist's home in black and white and a pad with the shiniest concrete floor you've ever seen! Oh how I love the Danish sense of style, how about you?

This week I'm excited to be working with a wonderful team at the IKEA headquarters. It's about an hour and a quarter away from Malmö by train and stepping off the train is like entering a snowy winter wonderland. BRRRR - my new work wear: a fjäll räven backpack and fleece tights!

Have a lovely day and stay warm!
