The angle is awkward but it illustrates very well exactly how a sleek black and stainless kitchen (cabinetry and countertops) works aesthetically with rustic, traditional flooring and accessories, nudging this kitchen toward a warm look and feel. Invita kitchen showroom.
Beautiful lighting by &Tradition, displayed at ICFF. Sensuous and understated.
Arrangement on a white wall of mostly Scandinavian artwork (except for one).
A warm, modern, organically shaped sofa for flexible living by Cloverleaf. Depending on how and where it is situated in a room, it can make an important design statement, but given its shape, it must make sense aesthetically and functionally in the room.
Such richly interesting objects in a window of an antique store on Ravnsborggade in Copenhagen and the reflection adds the perfect touch. I took this picture because I wanted to remember the painting on the left side of the window - a classic modern style.
A mix of styles and neutrals in these eclectic dining and living rooms in a Copenhagen apartment. It’s the way to combine comfort and elegance.
A charming table that is situated in a hallway just next to an apartment door. It’s a beautiful and simple arrangement of interesting objects and textures.
Clean white kitchen with texture in the Invita showroom in Copenhagen-a black textured tile backsplash adds continuity and interest. The wide planked highly textured natural flooring is beautifully textured and adds warmth. A warm, modern kitchen.
A vignette of the new Fredericia furniture showroom in Copenhagen. A fresh take on classic furniture set against a centuries old wall. The dark gray wide floor boards was also a new take on Scandinavian flooring, most often having a natural finish.
A stunning and elegant Christmas design and one that is beautifully simple. Image by Bolig Liv.
Another beautiful arrangement to bring a bit of nature indoors and add a feeling of warmth via the freestanding candles. Arranged on a formal platter, it’s a lovely contrast, perfect to dress up the kitchen table or island. Shot at Klassens restaurant on Bornholm, Denmark.
Laminate textures can replicate nature with a twist, accentuating line, texture and color. Soft laminate paired with soft aluminum pulls seems practically timeless.
