Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Bohemian modern

Ok, so I'll try to please everyone with this post and see if I succeed. There is the muted color range and design classics you are used to seeing here, but also lots of little vignettes and a quite bohemian feel to it all. What do you think, hit or miss?

This home belongs to Uffe Buchard, one of the driving spirits behind Copenhagen Fashion Week and editor at Danish magazine Dansk. And I had to make an exception here. I never post interior shots with people in them. But look at this guy! I couldn't not post it, right?

    Uffe Buchard - a well known Dane in our media - is openly gay. As most hot guys seems to be... :-)

    Extra bonus info: The reason for the low ceilings is that he lives in one of the oldest parts of central Copenhagen - a superhot place, too.

    Many readers af the Danish magazine, where the pictures are from, have asked about this kind of grey color. It´s a grey with some blue in, and the scaletone(light to darker) in NCS-colors is:

    NCS S 2010-R80B

    NCS S 3010-R70B

    NCS S 4010-R70B

    NCS S 6010-R70B

    Best regards from a Danish decoration blogger :-)

    Slightly off subject, but does anyone recognise the dining chairs? Who the designer is? I think they're fabulous.

  • emma ::emmas designblogg:: says:

    T, thank you so much for that information! It's really sweet of you to share it here!

    Kate, which chairs do you mean? I see no less than three different chairs, so please specify which set you mean and perhaps I can help! :)

    Apologies and thanks. I meant the brown leather dining chairs on the chrome central pedastal. All educated guesses welcome..

    They mixed some furniture with nice simple lines, and some wonderful mid-century modern pieces. Mixing nice materials and wonderful grey and black color palette. Simply inspiring! Thanks for posting!
