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.
Colorful, earthy, urban feeling kitchen from the Danish magazine, Rum.
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.
A favorite outdoor restaurant in the Nyhavn area of Copenhagen. Charm, age, living things, texture and that cozy factor adds warmth on the coldest days.
Scandinavian design inspiration comes from just being out in the street as I saw in the color and lines of this scene during a walk in Copenhagen.
The feeling in this restaurant, Kadeau, in Bornholm, Denmark, is warm and cozy, yet light and fresh-that’s often a theme in Scandinavian design. The crisp white furniture and woodwork contrasted with textured soft gray walls and further complemented by warm tones in flooring and furniture, is all about comfort. One piece of artwork, situated next to a coat hanging rack, just feels organic in some way; maybe it’s the form.
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.
In my recent trip to Copenhagen, outside the city, I found beautiful vintage tile tables in a thrift shop. I love the earthy, probably 70s tile motifs of these tables and can see this table being refinished for a whole new start as a valued piece of Danish modern furniture.
A beautiful square in Copenhagen. Classic mixture of white, cream, warm beige building facades. January 2013
A walk along a charming street in Copenhagen, January 2013
A well designed white Scandinavian kitchen in Invita’s Copenhagen showroom. Good proportion on the door and drawer sizes, a modern mix of white and stainless across the entire cooking area adds continuity. A beautiful textured floor adds warmth. Lighting below the cabinets adds a floating effect.
The office of onpurpose, a multidisciplinary design studio in Copenhagen. So stylish, high spirited and a perfect contrast of rich tradition with the windows’ simple forms.
Beautiful staircase in an antique building in whitewashed paint in Copenhagen. The herringbone pattern of the floor has a texture that is natural, imperfect, and real.
Beautiful staircase in an antique building in Copenhagen. Dramatic red wall, modern design elements and note the several inch high area above the white floor molding. Nice touch.
