Relaxed design house at old harbour in Copenhagen
“Hidden among the fishing huts that hug this harbour on the outskirts of Copenhagen, a photography-loving couple’s home captures the wild beauty of nature”, writes Clare Sartin in elledecoration.co.uk
The small fishing harbour in the south west corner of Copenhagen is an undiscovered patch of untamed nature. For landscape photographers Maria Rosendal and Martin Bay, and founders of Foto Factory, and their two daughters, this was the ideal place to call home. Having lived for years in Scotland, the pair had developed a taste for wild beauty.
The house has to work as a backdrop for Martin and Maria’s photography. The large windows make the house really bright, and the direct sunlight is literally the worst condition to create a soft and warm atmosphere.
To convert the house to a showroom we created a warmth and softness, while keeping everything very organic. By adding generous linen drapes, the light really makes the atmosphere when the patterns of sunlight now paints on the walls. The palette of natural hues – cornflower blue, oatmeal and an earthy beige. It is all colours that have a calming influence on visitors. Throughout this home, an ever-changing array of photographs blends beautifully with the scheme.
