When Copenhagen’s short winter days steal away the light, Marie truly appreciates the large windows and open lighting in her space. Each room was designed with light in mind: It’s easy to rearrange the furniture to make the most of it during Denmark’s winters.
She decorates her house with a curator’s eye and a focus on the past. Just as Marie situates herself within the building’s history, she brings bits of her own life into the space: Her favorite furniture and decorations hold memories from loved ones, such as the Gustavian chairs from her late uncle. These chairs remind her of the moments that have shaped her life. Her advice for other homeowners to decorate would be this: “Be patient and don’t try to put your home together too quickly,” she says. “A home that feels patiently decorated gives a better feeling of the person who lives there and that person’s journey through life.”
