The 2,000-square-foot Copenhagen townhouse that Sofie and Frank Christensen Egelund share with their four children is a modern haven with a distinctive design sensibility. Designed in a monochromatic palette, the home is the perfect combination of Scandinavian minimalism and homey comfort. And it’s no wonder: both Sofie and Frank work for Vipp, a third-generation, Danish company specializing in high-end kitchen and bath accessories. (Frank is the vice president, and Sofie is the communication and concept director.) As such, the pair has spent much of their lives learning about and seeking out good design.
Built in 1884 and formerly a grocery store, offices, an apartment complex and an artist’s studio (among other things), interior stylist, Marie Olsson Nylander and her family transformed this 12 roomed villa located in Höganäs, Sweden into a truly eclectic home. With an impressive eye for detail, Nylander brings her unique take on bohemian de luxe by incorporating a beautiful and extensive collection of antiques and designer pieces (uh hello Mark Eden Schooley $6,000 floor lamp) in a cohesive and slightly minimal manner.
When it comes to the personal home of a designer, we expect to see the wow factor. Are you wow’d by this home? I sure am!
pssst…that’s the lamp that could pay for my European vacation…almost ↑
I hope you all enjoy todays home tour as much as I do! With it’s white-washed floors and walls, the renovated home, originally built in 1901, is luminous, fresh and airy.
Soft and serene hues and curves are juxtaposed against black linear lines. From the framing of the couples unique artwork, to the statement rug, all creating a playful and modern 99 sqm home designed by HAY, Louis Pulsen, Kahler & Secto Design.
Home tour/ Small space: I’m thrilled with this old grain silo transformed by the architect Christoph Kaiser into a cozy studio in Phoenix, Arizona. The 190-square-foot space is outfitted with a highly customized interior. (via dwell)
