Simplicity

This lovely Copenhagen abode belongs to Oliver Gustav, a former set designer with a penchant for industrial style living combined with a rustic warmth. The home sits above Gustav’s eponymous shop that sells plants and antiques, which should come as no surprise since his home is furnished with found pieces that are sourced on his travels.  Stoneware and wooden objects mix with industrial pieces like an Eames chair, a pendant light from Germany, a wire basket used for storage, and a trash bin colored in what I like to call  “Hermès orange”.  I’m really drawn to a simplicity that isn’t stark or super modern, and to me the design of this space is so perfectly executed.  It’s simple yet inviting, rough yet warm, and it looks lived in which I think makes for good interiors.  All scans from Elle Decoration UK January 2010.
