Steal This Look: A Chef's Artful Dining Room in Denmark

Issue 17 · The Artful Life · April 24, 2012

At the top of our Copenhagen destination list is two-time Michelin starred restaurant Noma, with its spot-on deconstructed interior, the height of Nordic chic. It's no surprise that chef and co-owner René Redzepi's flat in Christianshavn is just as inspiring.

Photographed by Idha Lindhag, Redzepi's bright white flat features dashes of color from painted canvases, Kelly green furniture, and Redzepi's own ceramics. We've sourced some of the key elements for recreating the Danish urban look.

N.B.: See our post on Redzepi's restaurant, Restaurant Visit: Noma in Copenhagen.

Above: The interior walls are painted entirely in white, which gives the flat a gallery-like quality.

Above: Mix-and-match ceramics stacked on an antique industrial cart.

Above: Redzepi's own Nordic ceramics are also used as serving dishes at Noma.

Above: Botanics come first: an antique chart hangs on the wall behind a table of house plant companions.
