So, I’m going to Denmark in two weeks! I won a ticket to the Hive bloggers’ conference through C-More (thanks again, Iris!) and I’m totally looking forward to spending a couple of days in Copenhagen and getting to meet a lot of other interior design and lifestyle bloggers. I made sure I have an extra day to explore the city and find some shops to write up on Interiorator and the blog I write for Dutch luxury department store de Bijenkorf. The thing is, though, I don’t like Scandinavian Design. Or rather, I don’t like what a lot of people think is Scandinavian Design. You know what I’m talking about – lots of black and white, some wood and frankly not much else. It’s the perfect recipe for boredom and frankly, I think that working without color is a total cop-out. ‘Scandinavian Design’ sucks. Big time. So there, I’ve said it.
But. But! I’ve also seen a different side of Scandinavian design. Colorful! Daring! Fresh! Take a look at The Apartment and you’ll understand what I mean. This is the kind of Scandivian Design that rocks! And I’m convinced I’m going to find more of it in Copenhagen. Just like I did in Stockholm last year when I discovered the ‘Swedish Grannies on Acid’ style at Svenskt Tenn.
Jeg smutter igen, vi snakkes ved!
