Mad About . . ., My House

Dream House #No2: Tine K

24th April 2013

A few weeks ago I showed you pictures of a house in New York otherwise known as Dream House No 1 that had inspired my house renovation and today I bring you another, otherwise known as Dream House No2; The home of Tine K, who owns a shop selling furniture, homewares and clothes to which she brings her own Danish twist.

The main thing that caught my eye was the leather handles which she fitted onto inexpensive cupboards. Tine’s handles were homemade. I bought mine and attached them to Ikea cupboards. You can see pictures of my house here

The leather handles add a different texture to a room that is often full of hard edges and straight lines.

But it’s not just the kitchen in Tine’s home that I love. The whole house is a beautiful mix of white, thunder greys with lots of natural textures include wood and wool.

Decorating this way is a fairly classic Danish style. I have interviewed Marianne Brandi of DAY Home about Danish style  and she told me she uses the same tricks.

It’s a style I love and it never fails to make me catch my breath when I see a house like this. Sadly, I fear I am not quite disciplined enough as touches of colour always creep into my houses.

I would never be able to resist adding a rug to the sitting room above even as I look at it and love it.

It’s a scheme that’s very restful and I love the industrial cabinet above.

Here a plum coloured velvet sofa brings both colour and texture to the room adding a softening touch.

I could certainly see myself sitting at that desk and writing away the day.
