A two-floor penthouse apartment in Aarhus, Denmark, built in 1907. There's a kitchen-dining-living area, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study on the upper floor. The lower floor contains a studio and bedroom..
1/9 Living room
A cowhide rug defines the living space, while a bold print and a quirky cushion add a surreal aspect.
Green is a tranquil colour that can stretch to every room in the home without looking overdone. An occasional table is a great place to store magazines and books, while a decorative vase containing fresh flowers gives the room a lived-in feel.
Love The RainShelving
Here, artwork sits on open shelving to create a display that is full of character and personality.
The apartment's mansard roof allows light to pour in through the skylights, but means wall space is at a premium. Under-the-counter wall-hung units in the kitchen increase the sense of light and space.
The unusual curved staircase was installed when the house was first built, and leads to the drying room for laundry on the top floor. It was painted white to lighten the hallway.
6/9 Home office
High ceilings, plenty of light and a feeling of airiness are essential in this open-plan apartment. Unpainted lime plaster gives a softness to the walls.
This neat little room uses subtle touches - such as a low-hanging pendant and steel table - to take it from stark to stylish.
The rusted steel doors on the wardrobe are anything but a conventional choice. The rest of the scheme is kept light, bright and minimal.
The bathroom majors in tiles, steel and porcelain, as a cool counterpoint to the wooden beams in the living space.
