Ever since making the big move to Copenhagen last year, our apartment has kind of been a never ending project. We did quite a bit of work before we even moved in, like re-doing the floor and re-painting the walls. But when you move from the other side of the world, you need to bascially start from scratch when it comes to furnishing and decorating the rooms.
I have always been an avid fan of reality home decor shows like Selling Houses Australia and Grand Designs. The spaces ALWAYS end up looking so amazing, so naturally I had thought that collecting a bunch of decorative elements and a few furniture pieces would have been a piece of cake. I’ve learnt that its actually a lot harder than it looks to find pieces that fit together well and you constantly have to think about how the item you’re purchasing will compliment the other elements of the room.
Luckily for me, Scandinavia, and Denmark especially, is known for its sleek, stylish designer homewares and there is inspiration for interior decor basically everywhere you look. Unluckily for me, everything I fall in love with seems to be fairly pricey, meaning that I have to buy one item at a time. Over this past weekend, I think I finally achieved some level of synonymous style. We’ve got a loooong way to go, but I thought I’d share a few progress pics of the rooms, because well, I love them!
As I mentioned earlier in this post, we still have a lot of future plans for this place. Over the next 6months-1 year, we will be completely renovating the bathroom (becuase it was last done in 1986!!), tearing down the wall between the dining room and living room (hello open-plan living) and eventually get to the kitchen as well. Its a lot of work and obviously a lot of money, but I truly believe it will be worthwhile in the end.
Until next time! xx
