Masculine vs feminine: monochrome

Sophisticated masculine effect achieved by keeping monochromatic colour palette throughout the whole apartment. I love how the light plays in all those moody greys.

OYOY - new Scandinavian minimalism

OYOY is a young Danish design company, newly established yet receiving more and more enthusiastic praise. OYOY's home decorating accessories follow Scandinavian tradition of simplicity, functionality and high quality, natural materials. Company's main designer, Lotte Fynboe draws inspiration not only from the classic, Scandinavian style but also from Japanese minimalism.

“The simple things should have one colour stroke, which should be seen and give the product en edge. The things we surround us with should make us happy and give us energy.”

Creative interiors: geometric wardrobe idea

So simple. So brilliant. Geometric details of the wardrobe doors create an interesting, random pattern - great graphic effect. Form follows function.

Design icon: Mayor Sofa

A rare example of Scandinavian Mid-century modern furniture! Mayor Sofa by Arne Jacobsen and Flemming Lassen was originally created for Søllerød City Hall, and it has never been produced for the retail market before. Now Danish company &tradition successfully rejuvenates the design - Mayor Sofa received a Wallpaper design award as "Best Reissue 2013".

Styling inspiration: graphic Scandinavian

Graphic elements - an essential ingredient of understated Scandinavian style. Clean, sharp lines build minimalist look, finely softened by earthy tones and natural, honest materials. Note: light sofas boost the contrast of the entire space. Nice effect!

Luckyboysunday - dreamy coolness

Under a spell! Seeing Luckyboysunday’s designs for the first time, I felt totally enchanted by the magical aura they create. Those unique toys and textiles bring joyful, quirky atmosphere to any interior - in the end we are all just children at heart, aren't we?

The Danish brand is not only about aesthetics - all products are fair trade, manufactured in Bolivia, immaculately hand-knitted from 100% softest baby alpaca wool.

"We try to capture poetry. We adore the unsaid - it inspires your own imagination to create"

Creative interiors: chevron ceiling

An idea to steal - sculptural chevron pattern on the ceiling. Mirrored by the terra-cotta tiles on the kitchen floor. Great mid-century modern feel! Designed by architect Michael O’Sullivan and interior designer Yvette Jay. Beautiful blown-glass pendant lamps were also created by the architect. Note a CH25 easy chair and a CH008 coffee table, both by Danish designer Hans J. Wegner.
