The Copenhagen Home of Karen Maj Kornum of Another Ballroom

, , , , , , By Catherine

This is the beautiful home of Karen Maj Kornum, owner of the gallery and shop Another Ballroom in Copenhagen.

She lives in this spacious and luminous apartment in the neighborhood of Frederiksberg with her husband and four children.

The place actually doubles as Maj Kornum’s showroom, too. She skillfully mixes mid-century classics and other furnishings, which she sells through her shop. You’ll see vintage rugs, flea market finds, antiques, lots of art, and fun, personal touches.

Maj Kornum clearly has an eye for details, a knack for picking out interesting pieces, and a unique sense of aesthetics – Think bohemian chic meets Scandinavian vibes and timelessness.

It is an authentic home that reflects its residents rather than passing trends, and I’m loving it.

The apartment also has that warm, relaxed atmosphere, without compromising on style.

And how gorgeous are the gallery wall and airy dining room?

The wooden floors are pretty, too – Lye or soap-treated pine boards like these get a gorgeous patina over time.

Enjoy the tour below.
