Take a Peek Inside the Beautiful and Eclectic Copenhagen Home of an Art Curator

This is the lovely Copenhagen home of Marie Nipper and her family. She is the director of Liverpool’s Tate gallery and museum and, unsurprisingly, the 170-square-meter apartment is filled with contemporary art. The place is luminous and airy, with high ceilings, light floors and a crisp white paint on every walls, offering a perfect backdrop for their extensive collection.

Notice how elegant yet warm and cozy the interior is. I believe the look comes from the carefully-edited mix of furnishings; design classics combined with flea market finds, as well as travel souvenirs and family heirlooms. Such layered, collected and cohesive style is not an easy thing to pull off – Eclecticism done right happens with a balance of styles and periods; a considered mismatch of colours, textures, shapes and lines, brought together by a common thread and/or in a what that complement each other. That’s what makes a home unique, and that is what Scandinavians do so well.

    I really enjoyed the feel of this home. It was edgy and smart, but comfort spilled over everywhere. And the art was “delicious.” Sheer joy!
