A Bright Scandinavian Home In Germany

June 26, 2013 0


If you are a regular reader of my blog, you have noticed my Scandinavian adventures in Copenhagen as part of the ‘Bloggers Universe’ tour. I’ve always been a fan of Scandinavian design and interiors, but since my last trip I have thought and looked out for Scandinavian inspiration even more. Today I want to share a bright Scandinavian style home in Germany. Step in!

This absolutely stunning home is located in the German town of Wiesbaden, but it could easily be a home in Copenhagen, Stockholm or any other Scandinavian city for that matter. The dominance of white and wood perfectly sets the tone in this home. The entire interior design concept was created and executed by the German ‘Studio Oink’, a design studio run by two super creative minds, Lea Korzeczek and Matthias Hiller.

The depicted home is part of a typical German ‘Altbau’ building which means it is a historical building with certain architectural specifications that have to be respected. The owners contacted ‘Studio Oink’ and told them that they love the clear lines and inviting atmosphere of Scandinavian homes. This said, the designers started their endeavor by setting up the concept and then executing their ideas into reality.

The old flooring was removed and the original planks came into action, custom made furniture units were designed and produced, vintage elements like the old window frames were reinterpreted as a kitchen cupboard for the owner’s extensive ceramics collection. Smart storage solutions were carefully planned in order to guarantee an airiness which is typical for Scandinavian homes. No hanging cupboards were used, in order to highlight the wood and its structure, no handles were attached to the furniture. Every little detail was carefully considered and the result is simply breathtaking. 

This home is most certainly a very happy home. And it perfectly showcases the advantages of Scandinavian interior design. If you want to see more of this home, visit the website of ‘Studio Oink’ and see my blog post for the DesignTrade blog HERE.

    wow! that’s amazing! i love it! i’m just a little bit sad that i haven’t been into scandinavian design 4 years ago when we have renovated our house. i think i would have done some things different. :) anyway, interior is made for changing – so let’s go and be a little bit more scandinavian now.
    thanks for this inspiration!

    I’ve seen pictures of this home here and there, but never all of it-it’s so good! And thank you for providing some more info about the interior design concept and process and not just the images. Great post!

    so beautiful and bright! I think this is the style Chris would like and definitely in the palette I am crazy for. Maybe this will be my inspiration for a good compromise for our future house!

    This one has good bones! I’m drawn to the kitchenware on display and I find the bedroom solution quite interesting.

    This is a great minimalistic household! With houses like these, because you want to maintain the simpleness and cleanliness, it’s really important to maximise the storage spaces everywhere and the bed cum cupboard idea is great.
