Can you tell us more about your apartment and why you fell in love with it?
The building was built in 1863 and is located next to eat French street Værnedamsvej in Frederiksberg, where you can find lots of cosy shops and cafes. I lived in Brussels and New York and just fell in love with the international vibe of the neighbourhood.
Since I last featured your home, the colour palette has changed from sea green to a serene off-white. What was the thought behind this?
Speaking of which, I absolutely love that your home is full of interesting pieces. Can you tell us more about your decorating ethos?
When it comes to decor, I always love an eclectic mix of vintage and found objects, which are collected over time and tell stories of their past. Decorating a home should be like a book – where you enjoy the journey rather than the end.
What are the important elements to you, when decorating a home?
I love working with scale, shape and placement. Decorating a home is a feeling and an intuition. I seek intrigue and curiosity with every element I add. I also love working with contrast – using a calm wall colour and then placing art and ceramics in dark colours in front. Somehow, the contrast creates thyme balance I am constantly searching for.
Do you like to follow the latest trends?
My home doesn’t reflect a certain trend or style – it’s a mix of things that move with me and items that tell a story. It’s this blend that magically creates an interesting balance and calmness.
Do you have a favourite piece of furniture?
I have a big passion for wooden vintage objects. The little eight stool in the shape of an ‘eight’ (see above) is a big favourite (I found it on Etsy). Wood only becomes more beautiful with time. it brings so much warmth and tranquillity to a room. One should never be afraid of mixing different wood.
What do you love most about your home?
Our home tells a story and I love to embrace the very fact that our table has stains from glasses, or that our floors are worn from our children running around. I guess I search the beauty in imperfection. Life isn’t perfect and stains and patina don’t ruin your living space but show someone is living here.
Beautiful, and so inspiring, don’t you think?
I love her quote: ”Decorating a home should be like a book – where you enjoy the journey rather than the end”. This is exactly how I feel about my own home. It will never be ‘finished’.
Is there anything that stood out to you about Sedsel’s home and / or words?
Fancy peeking inside a few other Copenhagen homes to kick off the week in style? here are a few of my favourites:
Have a great start to the week!
PS I’m still on summertime over here (despite the not very summery weather!) and posting Monday, Wednesday and Friday until a return to my daily posts once the girls are back at school. Thank you for your patience!
