Inspiration from a Danish Castle and an iconic furniture company’s photo shoot.

Republic of Fritz Hansen is the legendary Danish furniture design company whose designers included Arne Jacobsen, Poul Kjærholm, Piet Hein and Hans J. Wegner. The above photo shoot featuring Poul Kjærholm’s PK31 furniture set is a real stunner. While the location of this shoot is fantastically beautiful, the styling also shows the transformative powers great design and amazing furniture can have.

With our apparent stone walls and exposed ceilings, we will also need to insulate parts of our Tour to keep us warm from the chilly Normand weather. Although reclaimed wood walls are lovely, we might also want to add traditional moulded wood casings just to the walls that touch the street side exterior. As I was looking over the design inspirations I had collected, I made a funny realisation; they were all coming from the same place!

Poppins from Sweden has a lovely blog featuring her beautiful photography and other projects. On a trip to Denmark she took the above shoots of Selso Slots Castle and added this description:

Today the house is still empty and has no decoration, only stripped walls and floors, a few bits of wallpaper and wall paintings”

Low and behold, as I was looking at Poppins’ pictures, I realized I had seen this cadre before. Yes, this post is just proof that I really do spend too much time looking at pretty pictures on the internet.

    It is absolutely great idea to insulate the at list some of the walls for the cold Norman winter.
