Hope everyone had a good weekend. The kids are due back to school tomorrow, so I have been busy ensuring all is ready for the first day of term.
The flat decorated by Ellen L Homann, comfortably accommodated four. There was a double bed and a sofa bed (above image with my daughter J). I was so taken by the comfort and style of the sofa, that I am now ordering one for our guest room. It’s by the Danish brand Innovation. The cushion in ochre, grey and black on the sofa is by Ferm Living.
Our flat, equipped with all the required amenities, was located in Gunlogsgade in the hip residential area of Island Brygge. Access to the city centre and Metro is all within walking distance. The flat is also near the Island Brygge Harbour baths called Havnebadet. Although the water was a bit cold, it may be very refreshing on a hot Summer’s day.
There were also some lovely independent shops and cafes nearby. The picture above is of our neighbouring cafe called Wulff + Konstali. They bake the most delicious Danish pastries, our breakfast staple, along with their delicious, freshly blended coffee.
The flat was light with its bleached wooden floors and ample windows. The style was decidedly eclectic, a mix of modern and vintage Scandinavia.
That ‘g’ print by Playtype was so befitting don’t you think? I have the exact same print at home, seeing this picture again is a gentle nudge for me to frame it up.
Loved these painted vintage chairs with their classic tapered legs. Here was where I sat when I wrote my blog posts at night.
Here is a sweet little corner of the apartment. I’m liking the box shelving. You can get similar ones from Muuto.
Within the box shelves were pretty, vintage floral prints.
That vintage three bulb, brass lamp came in handy for my Instagram shot of these gorgeous Bobo Choses Summer tops. I bought them for little M from the children’s boutique store dinBabuska, just opposite the apartment.
Here’s more vintage styling on a shelf in the living room. Those roses are so beautiful.
More clever use of box shelving in the kitchen. I’m liking the white tiles and the turquoise blue extendable lights by Ikea.The side shelf in a similar shade balances the overall look. Have you noticed those pastel Tupperware tumblers? They’re cute aren’t they? I might go hunting for some on ebay.
Last but not least, some wonderful quotations on this Bo Concept cushion.
Hope you have enjoyed the mini tour of where I stayed. I highly recommend it. The host Kristoffer was lovely. The only negative of the apartment was that the shower room was very small. However, that was only a minor point for us, we would gladly return when we visit Copenhagen again.
Have a wonderful start to your week. x
