The grand proportions of ‘Villa Frederiksberg’ have been reimagined by Copenhagen creative studio Spatial Code, to create a modern home in some handsome old bones. With a backdrop abundant in colour, fine furniture both custom, classic and contemporary are curated to create a residence that is sophisticated, while saturated with everyday warmth.
Each space flows on from the other seamlessly; the oak parquetry flooring and white walls in the communal zones create spatially active areas. Roomy and light, Jaime Hayon’s ‘Ro’ chairs in emerald green, the pair of velvet sofas in deep blue and the highly lacquered desk in shiraz are like beacons distinguishing their social areas. The striking kitchen in black with a stainless steel benchtop is softened by the illuminated recessed cabinet and the &Tradition ‘Mass Light’ in marble and acid-etched glass.
The private areas with their soft palettes are comforting and radiate warmth. The master bedroom in dusk pink, deep lilac and warm browns is rich and inviting. It’s the way the bed nestles into the pleated joinery, with Michael Anastassiades ‘Ball Lights’ haloing each side, while the curvaceously sculptural ‘Fox Chair’ by Sika Design sits patiently in quiet reflection.
This house is a wonderful example of how colour and craft come together to create a home that would be hard to leave each day.
