11. Colourful Bespoke Shelving in DenmarkLocation: Copenhagen, Denmark Who lives there: The Lønberg familyDesigner: Design by Us This storage was custom-made for the wall of the home office so it matches and blends into the surroundings. The design company wanted to keep the old Patrician villa style of the house while modernizing the office, so it decided to emphasize the previous use of the space as a “gentlemen’s room.” Historically, this was a place for men to smoke, talk and discuss politics. In such a space, designers used to paint the shelving and doors a tone darker than the walls, which the designers have echoed here. “We wanted to create a holistic room that catered to the owner, and just loved the dove blue color. The shelving is made of MDF with an auto lacquer finish,” says Lisette Bernhoft of Design by Us. The company defines itself as not typically Scandinavian by taking a more vibrant, eye-catching and fun approach to the color palettes they use, as opposed to the white, clean and minimalist Scandinavian look that Danish homeowners are used to.View the rest of this project Tell us: Do you have a clever storage solution?
