We've shown you the garden and grounds of the Danish Ambassador's residence in DC — My Great Outdoors: The Danish Ambassador's Garden Paradise. Now we're showing you the stunning interior of the mid-century modern home. The residence was designed by Danish architect Vilhelm Lauritzen in 1947 and officially opened in 1960, becoming the first modern Embassy building in Washington, DC... More recently, the Danish Ambassador's residence became the first carbon-neutral Embassy in Washington, DC. The stunning glass chandeliers were designed for the residence. The decor is mostly mid-century modern though the Embassy is slowly replacing older pieces with newer designs. All the decor and building design represent Denmark and the exterior white marble came all the way from Greenland.
