If you are a regular reader of my blog, you have noticed my Scandinavian adventures in Copenhagen as part of the 'Bloggers Universe' tour. I've always been a fan of Scandinavian design and interiors, but since my last trip I have thought and looked out for Scandinavian inspiration even more. Today I want to share a bright Scandinavian style home in Germany. Step in!
The depicted home is part of a typical German 'Altbau' building which means it is a historical building with certain architectural specifications that have to be respected. The owners contacted 'Studio Oink' and told them that they love the clear lines and inviting atmosphere of Scandinavian homes. This said, the designers started their endeavor by setting up the concept and then executing their ideas into reality.
The old flooring was removed and the original planks came into action, custom made furniture units were designed and produced, vintage elements like the old window frames were reinterpreted as a kitchen cupboard for the owner's extensive ceramics collection. Smart storage solutions were carefully planned in order to guarantee an airiness which is typical for Scandinavian homes. No hanging cupboards were used, in order to highlight the wood and its structure, no handles were attached to the furniture. Every little detail was carefully considered and the result is simply breathtaking.
This home is most certainly a very happy home. And it perfectly showcases the advantages of Scandinavian interior design. If you want to see more of this home, visit the website of 'Studio Oink' and see my blog post for the DesignTrade blog HERE.
