Minimalist Copenhagen Home


So, if January is leaving you feeling heavy-hearted, here is a minimalistic home to inspire you to clear that thick layer of clutter ballast. This home in Copenhagen, Denmark has so many features to inspire: clean walls, mismatched furniture, cool lighting (again mismatched), energising greenery, wall art (quirky but not overpowering), books both useful and decorative and simple outdoor space. Nothing ostentatiously iconic, just a small home in which to breathe, eat, sit, read and be. A house that is not immaculate but provides perfect inspiration. Go and have a look at Sorte Hus from architects Sigurd Larsen here.

  1. That looks a lovely home! Just like me, it looks as if they found it more difficult to curb the books! Sarah x

    1. Yes! Isn't this what makes it homely and personal - in a minimalistic way?

  2. Maybe it is me , and I think there is definitely a balance to make, but somehow this seems overly sparse and a bit soul less ?

  4. This looks lovely and clean but I would miss a sofa to stretch out on and I would feel very exposed with the lights on and no curtains or blinds, Angie

  5. That is gorgeous; I would just add a kettle, a bowl of apples, and a cat!

  6. I echo anexactinglife's comment, a bowl of fruit, a kettle and a cat (or dog) and you have a lovely home. :-)

    I like that they've got books everywhere, it's the one thing I find REALLY hard to declutter, although I do keep trying :-)

  7. I like the concept and the house in general, although the deco is not quite my style, but I do welcome the extremely sensible minimal layout and size, most definitely! 80sqm seems a very reasonable size for a 3-bed house and I like one-storey, though some people might have a problem with this for security reasons? I wouldn't want to have to clean those windows, I have to say… Overall - like :)

  8. I love the look of simplicity, space and the feeling of cleanliness. This is what I'm aiming for, perhaps not as minimalist as the photos though. Am a new reader of Claire's blog and it has inspired me to move forwards and sort the house out but am really struggling at the moment with all our stuff collected over 25 years of marriage and 3 children!

  9. Hey Claire,
    It's a house to swoon over isn't it. I rather like those low bookcases on casters I must say.

  12. This is lovely and I long for such a space. I am doing my usual January declutter with limited success. Have you heard of Marie Kondo? Her book sounds interesting and helpful for those like me who never seem to get on top of the problem because of emotional attachment to stuff.
