When I featured Sarah’s small Copenhagen apartment in 2021, it was one of the most popular tours of the year – for good reason (revisit it here!). I was excited to see that Sarah and her partner have since moved and are now busy renovating a 19th century apartment in the heart of the danish capital with “sustainability, recycling and minimalism” at the core. What’s more, they are doing much of it by hand to save money.
The apartment is still a work in progress but I couldn’t resist sharing a sneak peak of where the pair are up to. I love the earthy tones, Scandinavian vintage furniture and beautiful textures. A great sign of things to come as it slowly but surely becomes a home!
Sarah’s style looks so effortless but having completed a DIY budget make-over on our downstairs loo I know just how much work they would have put in to get here. If you’d like to see exactly what they’ve been working for and how much of a gut job it has been, I can recommend taking a peek at Sarah’s highlights over on instagram!
One thing I haven’t pointed out yet, is just how incredible the bones are in this apartment. They are very typical of the beautiful neighbourhood of Frederiksberg where this place is located. I was once lucky enough to shoot a home nearby for my book The Scandinavian Home and it remains one of my favourite homes to this day!
Would you like to take a look inside a few other Danish apartments today? How about:
