... make that The House Doctor!
Welcome to the home of Rikke Juhl Jensen, designer for the Danish brand House Doctor. Rikke founded the company with her sister and brother. They have taken their ideas, developed an accessory line for the Scandinavian household, and have started to expand... This beautiful, light filled home is a wonderful space to showcase proto types for design, as well as travel finds and artwork.
Now, I know all you design lovers out there are swooning over the high gloss black door, am I right??
The two tall cabinets were designed by Rikke, a take on the iconic American Metal locker, only these are made from wood, and painted the palest sage green. The bench and the runner are both from House Doctor.
White done right! I have previously done a few post with that title, and this home would also fall in that category for me!! It's so much fun to play with color in rooms that are as bright as these, don't you think?
A closeup of the small dividing shelves, seen above. The lamp base is so unobtrusive with its clear glass, that ones eye falls on the box and pretty little vase and flowers. Also.... the black lampshade help draw your eye to the painting on the wall. Rikke designed the brown box, originally a small cabinet for the wall, now filled with wonderful treasures from afar.
I LOVE this fun and colorful horse! It was a travel find from India brought back home in a suitcase.... notice the color coordinated books in the cabinet, something I would do!
Wait... I did do that :)!!! And how about that beautiful distressed trunk? Love the color and the patina.
Oh yes, I could live here!!
On the other side of the living room, an old console table has been pained a pale gray, propped up with a mirror, plants, basket, books and candles! Do you see what I see??? A clear Bourgie Kartell lamp.... What a great mix!!! Imagine this lamp lit up in the evening....
Oh, and notice the transom... no wonder the natural light is so fantastic!!
The End! :)
