This Colorful Copenhagen Home Will Inspire You To Make Bolder Decorating Choices

, , , , , , , , By Catherine

This is the family home of Danish stylist and content creator Cathrine de Lichtenberg, a renovated 2700 ft2 / 250 m2 apartment in a historic building in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen.

She works at Poppykalas, a creative and trendy floral design studio, so you bet she knows a thing or two about joyful color combinations.

Her playful approach is obvious when looking at pictures of her apartment, and it makes me want to step outside of my comfort zone a little… Her bold decorating choices are paying off!

Cathrine nailed down her eclectic look with a blend of classic Danish furniture with flea market finds, unexpected colors, and lots of contrasts in materials, hues, textures, shapes, and styles.

On the walls -and ceilings- you’ll find the most delicate lilac, a muted pink, a smokey blue, honey, green, and also wallpaper and a dried flower display.

Each room unveils a unique design with its own beautiful color scheme, and the result is fun, but also refined and considered. I am loving it!

To see more of Cathrine’s home, follow her on Instagram.

    That 7th photo clearly looks AI generated. Look at where the tile meets the walls and the area between the purse and the framed art.

      Actually, it is very hard to see but there are steps going down, turning right – That is the sort of alcove on the right. The large pots on the floor act as a sort of fence to the dip on the right. Check out this IG post :)
