This monochrome open-plan living space belongs to textile designer and Rosendahl Design Group Creative Director, David Andersen‘s Copenhagen home.
Wonderful light enters the space from all directions – the kitchen area being particularly blessed, which is ideal for food preparation and cooking tasks.
It’s a very pared back, masculine interior – no unnecessary fuss in evidence here. The interior décor has a strong design-led feel with some real Scandi classics in evidence. It’s striking, yet very functional.

This grey industrial kitchen – and the house it belongs to, is one of the most stunning we’ve seen in a while!
The Barcelona apartment was renovated by Jaime Beriestain back in 2015. Despite the fact that this room doesn’t get much natural light, the owners were brave enough to paint the walls, ceiling and cabinetry such a shadowy shade.
The combination of dark grey, copper and natural wood is a modern classic that remains hugely popular. Objects that could otherwise get slightly lost, really stand out and draw your eye. The light that does pervade the space is somehow enhanced, and you notice its play on shiny and reflective surfaces.
There’s a profusion of hard surfaces and materials which is very practical for a kitchen… and yet, despite this, the room retains a real warmth. We love it!

Every home should have a few quiet cosy corners. Those precious spaces to sneak off to – perhaps to work or read a book. This one is light & bright, simply decorated with natural colours and materials.

One of the most sure-fire ways to give a bedroom a bit of pizazz is investing in a four-poster bed. This four-poster bedroom is living proof. It’s the property of fellow lifestyle blogger, Rohini Wahi whose website is The Beat That My Heart Skipped.
It’s a very stylish space, combining contemporary furnishings with vintage touches very successfully. The bed is the star of the show – complimented perfectly by the mid century style sideboard and bedside table in similar wood tones.
As you can see, I’m still having a bit of a love affair with yellow in interiors; this particular shade on the wall is India Yellow by Farrow & Ball.

For most people, doing the laundry is a chore at the best of times. However, I’d do my washing, drying and ironing with a smile on my face if this industrial style utility room belonged to me!
It’s practical, light and roomy – you could swing a duvet cover, never mind a cat. If you have the space, a separate and – in the case above – matching washing machine and dryer are especially handy… especially if there are lots of people (and therefore, dirty laundry) in the household. It can halve the time that wash day takes!
The monochrome décor is lifted with copper highlights in the pendant lights, worktop planters and beautiful laundry basket.

A theme that’s gaining in popularity at the moment is jungle style. Sometimes you just want to open your front door and step into a fantasy world – at least some of us that live in a cold, rainy Pennine valley do!
I really like a rainforest vibe; it’s relaxing, exotic and fun. You can easily set the mood with sound – a recording of soft rain falling on to broad-leaved trees, fast-moving waterfalls and the shrill of cicadas… We sometimes play soothing rainforest soundscapes via Spotify through our Sonos speakers to help us fall asleep.
A feature wall papered with a bold jungle print helps bring a tropical vibe to a room. Dot a few big architectural houseplants such as palms, ferns and rubber plants around the room and it’s almost like being in the Amazon!
I just love these playful lights – available in black or white – of monkeys striking different poses. A group of these simian pranksters would make a brilliant talking point!
