As some of you might have seen on my Instagram feed, we travelled to Copenhagen over the Easter days. We had been there before two years ago and covered the main tourist attractions back then, so this trip was all about walking around in Vesterbro and Nørrebro, doing some shopping (Stilleben was high on my list, as well as Playtype which unfortunately was closed) and last but certainly not least we visited two really nice museums.

We took the train to the Louisiana modern art museum, where we spend the day strolling around both inside and outside and had a great lunch as well.

The other museum we did was the designmuseum Denmark, where we saw the Just one good chair exhibition, following the life and work of Wegner. The exhibition marks the 100th anniversary of his birth and gives and insight into his work with photos, drawings and models. It was nice to see some of his earlier works and read about the story behind each design. I find his work exceptional and never boring. The two last pictures by the way are from another exhibition about storage in the same museum, also very nice. If you get the chance and are in Copenhagen, you should definitely check it out.

White with rough walls

I think it’s very honest and characteristic that the walls are kept bare at some places.

Wat ik het mooist vind aan deze woning – buiten de leuke objecten en de zonder-kleuren inrichting – is het contrast tussen de strakke lichte vloer en de oneffen, ruwe muren. Ik vind dat heel eerlijk en karakteristiek en hou wel van de bakstenen die er doorheen komen.

I am most creative when everything around me is clean and simpel. I guess the people from Hangar Design Group must have thought the same thing because look how fresh and clean their offices look. Very inspiring.

Ik ben het creatiefst wanneer alles rond me heen opgeruimd en eenvoudig is. Ik denk dat de mensen van Hangar Design Group daar hetzelfde over denken want kijk hoe fris en minimaal hun kantoor eruit ziet. Heel inspirerend.

Beautiful home with vintage furniture

I love the deep brown of the vintage furniture against the soft tones if the wooden floor here in this apartment. This combined with some design items makes for a home with character. I could move right in.

Ik vind het diepe bruin van de vintage meubelen tegen de zachte tint van de houten vloer heel mooi in deze woning. Dit gecombineerd met moderne design elementen zorgt voor een echt karakteristieke woning.

Bed / living room with dark touches

The dark accents in this living/bedroom make everything stand out a lot against the light wooden floor. The black chair and lamp and of course the black radiator stand out a lot and the black frames create strong graphic lines throughout the space.

De donkere accenten in deze slaap/woonkamer zorgen ervoor dat bepaald objecten in het interieur er echt uitspringen. De zwarte stoel en lamp en de zwarte radiator komen mooi uit tegen de lichte vloer en de zwarte kaders zorgen voor extra grafische lijnen op de muur.

Muuto soft block sofa

Muuto soft block sofa - via Coco Lapine Design

Designer Petter Skogstad played around with the proportions of a conventional sofa for the design of this Soft block sofa for Muuto. The result is a playful composition of soft blocks. I think the blue color is very refreshing and matches the soft shapes of the piece.

Designer Petter Skogstad speelde met de proporties van een conventionele sofa voor het ontwerp van de Soft block sofa voor Muuto. Het resultaat is een speels samenstelling van zachte blokken. Ik vind de blauwe kleur ook fris en goed samen gaan met de zachte lijnen van het meubelstuk.
