Every now and then it’s fun to imagine what it would be like to live in someone else’s shoes… or better yet, their home. While Scandinavians are known most for their modern, very monochromatic interiors, there are actually many people who have very traditional homes with luxury materials and even when Scandis go for a monochromatic look, it can flesh itself out in very different ways. So, today, since I think both styles are beautiful and worth a peek, I have two homes for you to choose from, both of which are in Denmark and are luxurious in very different ways!
The first one is a suburban home that is oversized, hotel-like, and more traditional that what is typically found online. Here you will find velvets, candles, nail head trim, lux wallpaper and crystal chandeliers…
Pretty amazing, right?
Our second home is located near the city center with an industrial feel that is not only architectural but just plain cool. Inside the interior is pure white with black and dark wood accents. The furniture is more minimalistic, more practical, yet equally luxurious as the first home.
Did you choose a favorite? Maybe you would like a mix? I think the traditional pieces in the industrial space would be pretty epic, too!
Many of the traditional pieces are found at Rue Verte here in Copenhagen, but here are a few of my favorite items will help you get a similar:
If you don’t have a strong industrial core to your space, add an architectural art piece to create the same feel!
