We moved into this old jam factory two and a half years ago because we instantly fell in love with the open plan space and all the light. The flat is situated in Bermondsey, what feels like a little village in the middle of London. We're originally from Denmark and have filled the flat with new and old designs mainly from Denmark.
Describe your home's style in 5 words or less: Living Danishly in London warehouse.
What is your favorite room and why? I love our dining room; it's where we spend time with friends, where I work on NABO, it's where we have our morning coffee and talk about our day when the little one has gone to bed. It definitely is the center of our home.
If you could magically change something about your home, what would it be? I'd move it to the top floor in our building so we could have access to the rooftop terrace.
What's the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? The last thing I brought into our home is a Danish vintage daybed.
Through NABO I help people source originally Danish vintage furniture so it's only natural to find a couple of pieces in our own home.
Any advice for creating a home you love? To create a home you love and truly reflects who you are I think it's crucial to mix old and new by buying vintage or supporting new emerging designers whenever possible.
Don't buy into trends but go for the colors, patterns, and materials you're naturally drawn to.
By investing in original design you get furniture that is made to last and can be handed down from generation to generation. Heirlooms and vintage pieces tell a story and it's an environmental way to shop for your home.
