A RENOVATED FARMHOUSE IN DENMARK

femin1

This beautiful renovated farmhouse, located in North Zealand (Denmark), belongs to goldsmith and designer Marie Von Lotzbeck and her photographer husband Jacob Kirk. They have a minimalistic approach when it comes to decorating. A sober and simple color scheme has been used, together with a mixture of materials. Jacob has built the dining table as well as the large white book case (fourth image). A lot of recycled materials have been used. The glass and metal doors for example come from an old factory. The beautiful painting in the first photo is from Julie von Lotzbeck.

This cozy apartment is located in an old post office in in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen (Denmark). The two floor apartment certainly has a Scandinavian vibe but there are also French influences which makes sense as one half of the couple living here is French. The large table in the top images was bought in an antique shop. The lamp above the table is made of organic yarn and was purchased from French label Nonjetable.
