Tour of the hallway

Hallway via that nordic feeling

Hallway via that nordic feeling
I promised you a tour of the hallway now that it is done. Well nothing is ever really done, is it? At least not in my home, I am always moving things around and getting new ideas. But this is how it looks now.

Like the rest of the apartment this room has been painted from floor til ceiling. We stripped the floors of varnish and painted them white. Three layers plus drying time in between – phew! But I really like the result.

The rest of the room – walls, doors, door frames and ceilings were painted white aswell. We took the ceiling lamps down and replaced them with an IQlight, designed by Holger Strøm in 1973. The lamp is made out of flexible modules that can be folded into more than 22 different lamps – quite cleaver. I’ve had the lamp for years and still love the simplicity of it.

The art prints on the wall are by Lovisa Burfitt and the framed one on top of the shoe cabinet is by Kristina Dam.

We finally put up my Hang It All from Vitra designed by Eames. I bought it a year ago but didn’t bother to hang it in my old apartment, as I knew I wanted to move. I’ve added some copper hangers from HAY and some neon hangers from Ferm Living. We also hung a set of black Dots from Muuto.

The front door is greeting you as you come and go. I used wall stickers, that I bought ages ago to add the text. In Danish we say “hej” when we come and “hej hej” when we go. In my old apartment the door said “have a nice day” – it always made my guests smile.

The shoe storage is from ILVA and I am using a basket from IKEA for all the gloves, scarves and hats for the cold season. More on that right here.

The apartment has high ceilings, so to use the space we added a shelf above the entrance door. I had this in my old apartment too – it is a cleaver way of adding storage space to a place that you wouldn’t have used for anything else.

    Hi Rikke,

    Really love your hallway. I especially like the HEJ HEJ. Lucas loves saying ‘Hej and Hej Hej’ to everyone! Might have to borrow! ;-)

    Am looking forward to seeing it ‘in the flesh’ when we’re over next year!

      Steal away Stephen – I would be honoured :) And thank you. It’s all coming together and feels like home. I can’t wait to see you back in Copenhagen and to show you my new home.

    Hej ! Hvad matriale er sko skabet lavet af? Er det metal eller finér, eller højglans? Jeg overvejer nemlig at købe, men da det koster næsten lige så meget at skabet leveret, som det koster, vil jeg lige være sikker inden jeg køber :) På forhånd tak for svar og en lækker blog!
