A Taste of Copenhagen

If you're anything like me, reflecting on Danish interior design (and Scandinavian design in general), will evoke images of beautifully designed furniture, pale blond woods, and small doses of colour. It was the anticipation of this sort of inspiration that got me most excited about my short trip to Copenhagen last week, and the city certainly didn't disappoint.

Coffee shops, juice bars, and pastry shops alike - all seemingly belonging on the pages of a design glossy - contained the key ingredients of a scattered small tables, multiple hanging pendants, and a sprinkling of designer chairs throughout.

Imagine my surprise then, when my friends and I stumbled upon Cafe Dan Turrell, a Parisian styled bistro/bar that seemed to swim against the tide of modern cafes. With it's walls dripping in a rich hue of "oxblood", matching leather banquettes, and framed vintage posters creating a retro feel, I was taken by this gem of a restaurant.

Whilst eating the huge spread that was delivered to our table (which was delish), I was consumed with thoughts of translating the strong colour and crisp white touches to a residential setting.

Here are some examples which work, in my opinion:

  1. I really like the neon letters & numbers on the ceiling of the cafe. In the bedroom, it is definitely a dramatic colour palette.
