Many of us dream of a new kitchen – preferably one with lots of space, air and light. Some of us have one. The tricky part is making it our own – especially the white ones can feel a bit bare and impersonal until you add your own personality and style. And that is my favourite part! So I was thrilled, when I was asked to style an amazing Vision kitchen from Tvis Køkkener earlier this summer. To make the whole thing even better, the kitchen is located in an amazing penthouse apartment in Copenhagen (currently for sale, if you’re looking for a new home!).
White kitchens are very popular in Denmark. I have a white kitchen myself – it makes the perfect canvas for you to add your own personality. My best advice is to start by making up your mind of what kind of look you want to go for. In this particular kitchen I went for a clean, Nordic look to compliment the clean lines and airy feeling. I wanted to add personality without taking away the feeling of light and space, that I immidiatly loved about this kitchen. And I wanted to create a happy environment that would encourage vivid conversations over coffee and papers on a Sunday morning and big cooking projects on a Friday night with a glass of wine in hand.
Having great cooking gear and tools is very important. So is a few nice things to decorate with. I added a few black frames (from IKEA) with black and white prints from Strups to add character to the white walls. I kept most of the ornaments in basic colours like black, white, grey and brown with a few marble pieces in between.
I spruced it up with a few blues hues here and there and lots of colourful veggies and green plants to add a bit of sass.
Items I used
- Tray and salt & pepper mills from Design Nation
- M42 Stool from By Lassen
- Prints: Perfectly Imperfect and Love Cactus from Strups
- Sip cups, Chawan bowl and Pen holder from Studio Arhøj
- Tea towel from The Organic Company
- Dishwashing soap from L:A Bruket
- White marble boards and Frame basket from Louise Roe
- Fresh veggies, olive tree and herbs – flower pots from my local florist
While I was there I got to give the bathroom a mini make over too.
All of the products, make up brushes and the towel are my own (yes, I love organic products from L:A Bruket and Rudolph Care and Nuxe). I also used a Melting Mug from Studio Arhøj (which I have a huge crush on!) and a copper/white Tray from Louise Roe.
To make this styling even more fun and inspiring, Tvis Køkkener asked two other bloggers to give it a go too. The same kitchen looks so different with each of our stylings. Check them out here: Thomas from Madetmere and Laura from The Sweetspot.
By the way; tomorrow is the last chance to vote for me for Blogger f the Year – actually you can vote once a day, so that gives you two votes ;) Check this post where I explain how to do it – it takes 2 minutes and I so appreciate it. Thanks x
