Copenhagen Home | Helle Flou

  • Est-Magazine-Sydhavn-Copenhagen-interiors-Jacob-Nielsen1

    This Copenhagen home, belonging to Mia and Niclas Forsling, in the southern section of Copenhagen, is an example of that classic Scandinavian personality we have come to know all too well. Styled by architect and designer Helle Flou from HelleFlou Design Studio, the use of  the key elements of Scandinavian design that of course include the liberal use of white paired with natural timber creates the quintessentail nordic look.

    The Bankers Clock is an Arne Jacobsen classic from 1971

    The furniture and decorative accents reflect the owners appreciation for minimalism that has been cleverly added to with personal touches that include mementos from the couple’s travels, their unique artwork collection and ceramic pieces. Buddha statues, Russian nesting dolls, books and even the dog print cushion –  add an extra element and a quirky touch that is characteristic of Scandi design.

    The iconic dining chairs are Hans Wegner, the Ellipse table is Arne Jacobsen, and the lamp is from Finnish design company Secto Design. Displayed on the table are collected ceramics and travel mementos. The painting is by Mette Helena Rasmussen and adds a splash of undeniably Dutch classicism with a modern twist.
