Last Sunday I arrived back from Copenhagen, but the ideas, inspiration and memories swirl in my head incessantly. There is still more to tell and show you, but today I want to use the opportunity to show you my booth styling as part of the 'Bloggers Zone' at the DesignTrade fair in Copenhagen. All nine international bloggers were asked to style their own booth with furniture and home accessories from the exhibitors and the result was fabulous as every blogger showcased his very own personality and approach to styling.
Before heading to Copenhagen, I had spent a few evenings thinking of the styling. I had a rough idea, a colour scheme and after a few more mental loops I broke it down to one theme - 'Nordic Coastal'. Fun side fact: Just after we all finished our stylings last Tuesday, we were taken on a sailboat to cruise the coast off Copenhagen. I not only styled a 'Nordic Coastal' living nook, I also experienced the real nordic coastal feeling in the very same afternoon.
With the theme in mind I started collecting furniture pieces and accessories from various brands. Here is what I got: Bookcase 'Reol' (means bookcase by the way) by Marcus Kai Nielsen of the young design collective 'Nye Streger'; 'About A Lounge' chair and box by HAY; Sputnik coffee table by Magnus Olesen; vases, candles, jars, plaid and round cushion on the chair by Broste Copenhagen; blue glasses and grey and blue cushions by Tine K Home; blue rug by Rug Solid; Copenhagen poster by Ferm Living; patterned round cushion by Place de Bleu; mint cups and grey vase by Kähler; other props by myself.
After lots of placing, shuffling, pondering, wondering, and hesitating, I felt like it is fine and represents pretty much my personality and current style love. I hope you like it, too.
Thanks again to all exhibitors supporting me and thanks to the DesignTrade for a fabulous 'Bloggers Zone'.
