When I re-decorated my home office recently, a lot of my inspiration came from the clean lines of Scandinavian interiors, set against a bright white canvas. This style is very different to the rest of my home but I absolutely love it’s simplicity and freshness. I have been wanting to add more black and white accessories to the room, which are so synonymous with the Copenhagen trend, so this was the perfect opportunity. The black cuts through the white background of the room and adds some definition.
My first choice from the collection is this Marimekko crockery, which is the perfect addition to my desk for stationery supplies – I always prefer to store things in cups, jugs and bowls that I love instead of hiding them in kitchen cupboards.
The Scandinavian String shelving that we chose for the home office has oak shelves so I immediately honed in on John Lewis’s Oak task lamp, which brings warmth to the Copenhagen trend and softens the hard edges of the black and white. You’ve got to love a good bit of flex cable too.
Another addition is the Listrado rug, which adds interest to the white floor and makes more of a design statement. I have positioned it behind my desk and it is now Otto’s favourite spot in the house – those black stripes will be completely covered in white fur very soon!
So totally jealous that my mum is off to the real Copenhagen this weekend. I might have to ask her to bring me home a treat or two 😉
