This splendid 2,000-square-foot townhouse in Copenhagen belongs to Frank and Sofie Christensen Egelund who share it with their four children.
The house is a modern shelter featuring distinctive design peculiarities. The family calls it their dream townhouse.
Featuring a monochromatic color palette, the house represents a perfect mixture of Scandinavian minimalism and extreme comfort. And this isn’t surprise as Frank and Sofie work for Vipp – the Danish company producing high quality bath and kitchen accessories. So the couple has spent their lives studying great design.
The building was constructed in 1898. 8 years ago the Egelunds decided to renovate it. It is a typical Danish townhouse, which has 5 small levels to serve as homes for 5 different families. However, the couple has divided each level into their own spaces as well as spaces for their kids and communal living. They managed to blend the levels into one integral space.
The interior is a mixture of monochromatic shades and minimal wall décor. The owners skillfully selected the furniture, family accessories and lighting, having achieved a plain but at the same time extremely modern and individual design.
Like Sofie says, in Scandinavia they have a very strong history and tradition of furniture. Careful selection of furnishings allowed the couple to make the space opened and airy, express their personalities and pay homage to the history of design.
Our decorations reflect that things should have a certain heritage and personality, and these things will live longer than shorter trends
