This stylish Copenhagen flat belongs to a Danish woman and her French husband. It is in an old building in the Frederiksberg district, which used to be a post office. It has an open plan kitchen that has wooden items and ceramics on display, and a yellowish poster from the Varde Museum that blends well with the neutral colours. There is artwork on the walls that give the home a certain edge. Most of the home accessories, like vases and candlesticks, look modern and there are classic pieces of furniture like the black Eames chairs in the dining area and the Flagermusstol, or the Butterfly chair, in the living room.
So far, the images have shown a look that has the Scandinavian vibe. Then in one corner we have this old and worn semicircular console table with a few decorative items, like glassware and a vintage mirror, and instantly the French vibe sets in.
And almost saving the best for last: The view from the apartment over Frederiksberg Allé. It makes me long to walk the avenues and streets of Copenhagen again.
