Ap(art)ment Envy

July 29th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Architect Sofie Simone (via automatism) has a gorgeous, airy apartment in Copenhagen filled with fabulous, bold art. Watch out, this is definitely giving me a case of apartment envy! Sofie cites seasonal art school shows as a great source for less expensive art.

Bolig Magasinet (via Google Translator): “The apartment had just been renovated as architect student Sophie Simone Aandahl took over the 130 square meters in the Vesterbro West end district of Copenhagen. From day one she loved the area and the apartment’s Parisian feel.”

Left wall: Mette Helena Rasmussen; above couch: Balder Olrik, Jan Mogensen, Mette Helena Rasmussen, Anne Fløche, Sophie, and others.


Table: Arne Jacobsen, lamp: Ron Arad, painting: Katrina Zacho.


Paintings: George Flemming Gustawa (top), Didder Geisler (bottom).


I love the pale pine floors and the abundance of light in the apartment! My favorite features are those traditional French windows and doors like the one leading out to the terrace. They even have panes above the doors that stretch to the ceiling. Incredible! Oh, yeah… and the art’s pretty awesome too.
