One of my clients recently asked: “Is brass out?” – I ansered that it would never be “out” if done right; When used in parsimony, with intent and careful consideration, this metallic touch is elegant and timeless. And here is the perfect example of what I had in mind!
Frama is behind the interior design of this renovated historic building from 1878 in Copenhagen. The team transformed what was an old stable into a bright and airy residence, with a cohesive use of materials and attention to details. Brass is the metal of choice and can be seen throughout, but in a lagom way; not too much, not too little, just right. Curated, thoughtful, tasteful and elegant.
Frama also nailed the warm minimalism look, too, by using a pared down palette of earthy tones, wooden elements and handpicked furniture and accessories.
Notice also the gorgeous oak framed windows. Oh, and you’ve got to see that bathroom…So chic!

Looking at this interior, I can’t help but think Eames’ quote: “The details are not the details; they make the design.”
