DANISH HOSPITALITY

It's no secret that Danes have an exquisite taste in design, and that their hotels are no exception to this rule. The recently opened Hotel SP34 is one of the newest additions to the impressive line up of design hotels in Copenhagen. The hotel, formerly known as Hotel Fox, was completely revamped by architect/designer Morten Hedegaard into a chic 118-room boutique hotel. Designed with the staple Nordic aesthetic, the hotel is decorated in a soothing grey and white palette with deliciously warm details in wood and leather. No doubt Hotel SP34 should be on the top of anyone's list traveling to the Danish capital any time soon.

AN EXCITING DESIGN ADVENTURE

I can't get over the fact that this unbelievably fun flat once was a Danish schoolhouse. Right in the heart of vibrant Copenhagen, this amazing apartment is filled with whimsical details and plenty of funky artwork. I'm particularly loving the headless bear sculpture by American artist Richard Colman. Is definitely a playful space where form and color create an exciting design adventure.

FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE

I can't get enough of this sweet apartment in St. Petersburg, Russia. It's design is an fresh interpretation of Scandinavian tradition mixed with mid-century modern minimalism by Russian architectural firm Int2. White walls and neutral floors are background to a soft palette of pastel like coral, blue, pearl gray, creating an atmosphere of warmth and coziness. But, of course, the best part of this flat is the its simplicity and beautiful attention to details.

NOTHING FISHY ABOUT THIS HOME

It sure takes a certain dose of imagination to be able to turn an old fisherman's cottage into a magnificent home like this one in a coastal town not far from Copenhagen. Between old and new, the medley of furniture is fantastic. The neutral color scheme—with sprinkles of red, copper and wood—hightens the warmth of the place. And what about that stunning concrete floor? I love how beautifully the dark tones they used accentuates the rich textures of the furniture. Happy weekend!

NORDIC CHIC DOWN UNDER

Looking at the beautiful Nordic style of this home you would think this gorg house is somewhere in Denmark or Stockholm. But I was pleasantly surprised to find out it's actually in Melbourne, Australia. With the quintessential Scandinavian color palette of black, white and gray, Whiting Architects created a stunning habitat. The occasional wooden accents around the house are the perfect touches to add warmth and spontaneity. I'm in love!

A SPLENDID AND REFINED LOFT

There were various challenges with the chaotic layout of this two-story Amsterdam loft. But thanks to a dramatic renovation by Architect Laura Alvarez, the rather claustrophobic space was transformed into a bright, airy, contemporary home that's to die for. The absence of color in the loft's bones is contrasted by the splendid use of color splashes in the furnishings and wonderful art. But if you ask me to choose a key element in the new space I'd have to pick the cantilever staircase that floats between the living and kitchen areas — it's a piece of artwork on its own.

BLACK MAGIC

Black is often a color not everyone falls for at first sight, especially when it comes to one's home decor. It usually takes some getting used to, but at the end it's a choice that most end up loving. There's something magical about this color that makes everything else around it pop and look super chic. The owners of this Hamburg home have used black exquisitely, especially in their kitchen. You might feel an all black kitchen is way too much, but after seeing these pictures there is a big probability you will be changing your mind — it's dramatic and quite stylish. Don't you think?
