Big Style, Small Budget









Neither Camilla, who is a child care worker in Copenhagen, nor Peter, who works at a catering company, have careers notable for making a lot of money. What they do share is a highly developed talent for finding beautiful things and arranging them to great effect in their home. Their look, Camilla says, is all about mixing styles — investing in a few items of good quality (found through online auctions) with more affordable pieces discovered in local second hand shops. "There's no reason to buy everything from new," is Camilla's sensible explanation of how she and her boyfriend can surround themselves with great things on a relatively modest budget. The result is a home that's fresh, pretty and definitely inspiring. Article (in Danish) and more photos here. Via Boligmagasinet.

Funny, my first thought was "that looks so Danish" (being a Dane I'm getting the hang of the look :))

I absolutely love that wallpaper. It looks like a giant array of lightning bolts. Also, the lamp in the sixth picture would look great next to my bed....or anywhere in my house. I just want it. :)
