Extreme Monochrome in Copenhagen

I challenge you to find even the tiniest brightly colored detail in this home! There are no other colors outside the neutral white, gray and black scheme, at least not that I can spot. To me, this is very relaxing and easy on the eyes, and the warm white and gray hues keeps it from becoming sterile.


Also, the vintage and antiques really ups the warmth, without them this would have looked extremely boring!

The apartment is located in Copenhagen and belongs to stylist Ingeborg Wolf and her partner Claus Larsen. They took lots of inspiration from the raw and minimalist but super exclusive style of Rick Owens, built some furniture themselves, and added a few dividing walls and industrial indoor windows to create the look they wanted.
As a stylist myself I can totally relate to her choice to create a neutral home where one gets an opportunity to rest from all the impressions from work and the outside world. Sometimes this awareness of your environments, and the need to take in and also produce so many products, patterns, scenes, colors and spaces every day gets overwhelming, and all you really want when you come home is a blank empty space…

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between. If you have any suggestions, propositions for collaborations, other ideas or just want to say hi, throw an email at: [email protected].
