We’re always looking to learn designs lessons from the past. Case in point: the house of Danish architect and designer Finn Juhl.
Our friends Juli Daoust and John Baker of Toronto-based store Mjölk recently toured the house during a trip to Copenhagen. “One thing that really struck us was that each room in the house had a ceiling painted in a different color,” John says. “Finn Juhl thought of color as an emotional trigger, just like a painter would. These emotional color triggers can be found throughout the home, some are very subliminal (the red wall in the living room, for instance), or the blue paint wrapped around the windows. There is a rhythm to his color choices, so although in many circumstances they are quite daring, it never feels overwhelming.”
