Interior Report: Copenhagen
Today on the blog, I have a new subject that I want to start working into Wendling & Boyd. Here's the back story. After my Mom graduated high school, she married my Dad and had my brother and I. She never returned to college. But she has one hell of an eye for interior design/decorating. I can remember going antiquing all day with her and finding decorum for the house. She always loved primitive folk art/ old Americana. Currently she has been decorating our lake-house with an aesthetic that'll make any nautical lover faint. (blog posts to come). When I got older (maybe around 8 or 9) I would start moving my furniture around and changing my dolphin posters around (yes I said dolphins. I wanted to be a marine biologist). And to this day I still move my room around once in awhile.
With all of the influences and my personal style forming, I've created the topic of "Interior Reports". These are going to be posts featuring inspirations from city's, colors, styles, and designs that form an aesthetically appealing room/space. Right off of the bat, I'm going to start with a place that is near and dear to my heart. With graduating in a year I have my eyes on the prize of moving to Copenhagen to work at some sort of design agency. So with loving the culture, the design, the coffee, and the architecture, I wanted to introduce you to the Interior Report of Copenhagen. Let's begin shall we?
Copenhagen is known for its gorgeous whimsical architecture, it's play on light and shadow, and it's design aesthetic. When I've researched and found pictures of the city, it has a foggy ambiance and a plethora of stories to tell. When I looked at the interior spaces a lot of things were connected. With what I found, a lot of space pay homage to the neutrals. Lots of white, brown, blue, green, brown, and grey. With that, the furniture and decorum tends to match that simplicity. The future usually is enthralled in the world of modernism in a sense where it reminds me of Herman Miller or Steelcase ( furniture design company's here in Michigan). The lighting now is probably the thing that I'm mostly attracted to. There's this Carvaggio-esque lighting that breathes the fine art painting technique called chiaroscuro. There's either a lot of light or dramatic lighting. A painter's dream for sure. The lighting can be somewhat diffused as well from the foggy weather. There's a lot of textural aspects as well. A sense of rawness is defined by the plethora of exposed brick, concrete, and tile.
