Pretty greens and blues in a Copenhagen home

This lovely 1920's Copenhagen home in a former sculptur's atelier is decorated in the prettiest of pretty greens, turquoise and blues. It's one of those homes which never goes on the market - owner Josefine Bentzen, an award winning industrial designer, who lives here with husband Steen Piil inherited it from her parents. The couple have decorated the space with the perfect blend of romantic country, mid-century and scandinavian modern to create a truly unique and personal home. What a treasure?! 


My Mum works in a former artists studio in West London and the space is structured in a very similar way, with the same high windows on the walls and an angled sky light. The windows are also likely to be north facing to ensure reflected or indirect light which helps the artist have greater control over values, contrasts and subtle colour changes within a painting or sculpture (if you live in the southern hemisphere these would face south).

Artist or no artist, wouldn't it be fab to have windows like these in your home?!

Other items I know and love: source a vintage Cobra phone on ebay, try Lauritz for a RAR rocking chair, or Design Collectors for a modern version. Mid-century credenzas are often coming up here.

I love the idea of spaces that have an interesting past. Previous spaces I've shown include a former carpenter's workshop, an artist's home in a converted button factory and a family home in a former kindergarten. So wonderful, don't you think?!

Does your home have an interesting past?

Have a lovely day!
