House in allotment association
The woman behind børnibyen.dk (Children in the city) has obviously found her own little paradise in an allotment association in Amager - not far from Copenhagen. Caroline makes a living of guiding others to the fun experiences with their children and of course she has decorated her home in a lively style. Her style is a blend of simplicity and feminine design and gives ideas to combine the home for family life and as workplace.
Heirlooms and flea market findings create a large part of the interior design. Birgitte loves going to flea markets and second hand shops and often fall for retro-colored accessories. "Old quirky flea findings help to emphasize the colors of the home and provides a good counterpart to the basic furniture," says Birgitte. Besides the house, the garden is also something the family appreciates. "The garden is a giant playground, and we love the outdoor life all year round," says Birgitte. The kitchen and the garden are the places she love the most. There is a matching food feature.
Design with humor
They have kept the original floors, but they have been painted in a light gray to create a context on the ground floor where there is a kitchen, hall and bathroom. 'I love the painted floors because the garden door is open most of the year, the leaves blows in and we go often in and out in rubber boots - so it should be easy to maintain. Otherwise, we have chosen white walls, allowing individual furniture and decoration in colors to lighten up. It is obvious that I love the colors and like create interesting contrasts" Line says.
Bold mix in classic surroundings
Once a set-designer with a penchant for drama and quirky contrasts fall in love, and to move in with a television program cutter with love for feminine pastels and nostalgic memories it will automatically create a unique style in the home. In this classic apartment in the heart of Frederiksberg the creativity and quirky ideas are bound together by a love of colors, shapes and retro findings. Vases turned into lamps, leaning bookcases, books and mirrors, collage art and bright colors mixed with pastels characterize Iben and Eilevs home.
The apartment used to be an office for a medical company before Michelle moved in. It was completely empty and Michelle had to design the apartment her self. It is very important that it can work as her working space during the day and for family time in the evenings. There is one big open kitchen and a connecting living room and 3 bedrooms.
