Discover The Scandinavian Design of This Copenhagen Family Home ⇒ In Copenhagen, Denmark, an amazing 18th-century family home meets business with great Scandinavian design in the mix. Gallerist Tina Seidenfaden Busck makes this her shoppable design-filled space, as well as her family home. Today, Interior Design Blogs brings you an inside look at this amazing space.
Like a village in the city,” says gallerist Tina Seidenfaden Busck of Christianshavn, the stylish, canal-bisected neighbourhood of Copenhagen, Denmark. It is home to both the Apartment, her shoppable design-filled space in an elegant 18th-century residential building, and, a few floors away, the light-filled 2,800-square-foot apartment she shares with her husband and three young children.
“I love the diversity here. You have people living in houseboats, amazing historical buildings like the home of [Danish painter] Vilhelm Hammershøi, and top restaurants like Noma and Amass, in addition to smaller shops like Lille Bakery for bread and pastries,” she says.
That lively mix is key to her personal aesthetic, which includes an unbridled enthusiasm for colour and pattern as well as an eye for great lines, transcending perceived notions of Scandinavian design as mere neutral minimalism.
In her living room, art by Anselm Reyle hangs behind a vintage Josef Frank daybed recovered in red-and-white stripes. A green Snoopy lamp by Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni sits on a Børge Mogensen desk next to a first edition of the Flag Halyard chair by Hans Wegner. In the bathroom: a pink Italian sink and green-marble walls and flooring.
This summer, the Apartment expanded to another floor, but the new space is open to overnight guests: It’s a two-bedroom “hotel concept,” where visitors can spend a few nights in Seidenfaden Busck’s colourful village.
Does Seidenfaden Busck draw a line between curating for a sophisticated design audience and picking pieces for her own family? At home, she says, the important thing is that it “feels lived in, welcoming, and unpretentious. Sometimes the pieces get some extra patina, but that’s what happens when things are used. It is not an exhibition space.”
