Converted Pencil Factory in Copenhagen


I was reading the latest Elle Decoration the other day and they are featuring the beautiful home of Ferm Living founder Trine Anderson. They were mentioning how they had transformed their loft in an old pencil factory from the Brygge Island area of Copenhagen...somehow this sounded familiar! I remembered reading about the home of Morten Bo Jensen, Chief Designer at Vipp. They must be living in the same building as they also have a loft in a old pencil factory in Brygge Island...coincidence? I think not! The two flats couldn't be different in style though. 
First we have the minimalist monochrome heaven belonging to Vipp's chief designer. I love the clean lines , the light, the cohesiveness of the space

I love the idea of the planter to divide the space. It really brings the whole room together and breaks the black. I also love the wood, it really softens the space.


Now for the Ferm Living loft conversion. Clearly the same building with the black window, spacious proportions but a totally different vibe.  Ferm Living is well known for its colour and patterns and this flat embraces just that. I have to say I love it:)

How dreamy is the parquet flooring! And the colours, it just lifts up the whole flat doesn't it?
Which one do you prefer?
Bon weekend!Bisous x
