SMALL SPACES: STYLISH RETRO APARTMENT IN COPENHAGEN
By Stylejuicer on August 28, 2013
I’ve recently taken stock of my interior posts and feel that I need to counter balance all those huge, impeccable, glamorous interiors and homes which – let’s face it – are unattainable to most of us.
So today I’ll be starting a new series featuring SMALL SPACES that are cleverly designed and decorated, maximising space and from which we can all take inspiration for our own homes – unless you’re a multi-millionaire or Victoria Beckham. But don’t worry that doesn’t mean that you won’t get your property eye-candy of infinity pools, kitchens the size of tennis courts and statement staircases anymore. I just want to broaden my selection a bit and make the experience more pleasurable for you.
I came across this cute little apartment in Copenhagen on Danish site Femina, the online presence of the same name women’s magazine. The apartment is 69 m2 (740 sq ft) and has been lovingly renovated and opened up by photographer Benita Marcussen and her partner Niels Frøhlke an app developer.
I love their deco mix of retro, IKEA and statement pieces (especially the shiny black fridge). The iconic 70ies photo of a female tennis player without any knickers injects some humour and reminds me of my own tennis club when I was growing up and that exact same print had pride of place in the clubhouse. The use of bold colours amongst a mainly neutral colour palette draws the eye in and sanded wooden pillars, exposed brick and zinc pipes give interesting textures to the space. Benita tells me that they are currently changing the flooring and the kitchen and I wonder if I can persuade her to take a few shots of the updated space. I’ll let you know!

When seeing creative little spaces like Benita and Niels’s apartment I’m always curious where they got their decor from and how to create the look in my own home.
