    I live in Copenhagen and are Danish, it looks like the accurate style of me and my friends: classic designs, wood and lots of plants

    Yes, on pinterest you can search for “Danish dining room” for inspiration. What I think is missing are two paintings side by side on the wall, a LOUIS POULSEN type light over the dining table and a rug under it. Also, the plants should be at a higher hight, on a flower table.

    It’s beautiful! Maybe a piece of art on the wall? I love bright screenprints to contrast with neutral greys and woods in my interior.

    This kind of stuff for example

    Yes absolutely! Especially the chairs. Not sure about the sofa area lighting – it’s the only un-Scandi element I see. You could do with some art above the cabinet and sofa to tie everything together and brighten it up!

    Agreeing with the praise here and can I say I especially love the concrete floor. I had a dream of buying a particular house that was a fixer-upper and part of my plan for it was an extension with a concrete floor but sadly it wasn’t to be. I will enjoy yours vicariously.

    Swede here. I’d say you’ve got a good grasp of modern scandinavian interior decor.

    The things that I feel are a little off are the spotlights, the blinds and the fan. The spots and the blinds look more like something you’d find in an office than in a home and the design of the fan is not very Scandinavian. That being said, we are very fond of finding elements from other places and incorporating those into our own cultures so you can’t really go wrong with a few details here and there.

    It looks really great, but I feel like it’s missing a bit of warmth or color, some more personality. I feel like the Scandinavian aesthetic done outside Scandinavia often lacks a bit of that. Possibly due to people like frederikrisvik, who have (what imo is) a very sterile approach to minimalism. These end up having the look of a showroom rather than a living room.

    Some large book case filled with books and what not (ofc don’t just buy the books if you don’t already own enough) or a recliner, couch, or even rug in some rich color, orange, mustard, navy, burgundy, teal, forest green etc. Would help give some personality and warmth (or “hygge” if you will) to the room. Wall art should also do so, but I feel like monochromatic furniture and only color on the walls also has an “off” look.

    Looks great !
    I’d consider sharing the top of the side board with the plants and the record player ? They may appreciate being closer to the natural light and they would also fill in some void in the upper section of the sight-line

    I think some wooden blinds and simple but big pieces of abstract art would look really good in here. Personally I think black and white abstract art would be beautiful in here

    I’d say bohemian/mid-century modern.

    ID on the mirror?

    I’d add a beautiful old framed map above the credenza, or a cool big mirror.

    I love the floor, but maybe a cool rug on a little of it?

    Where can I buy that stool that’s in front of the mirror?

    It looks great 😀 A few framed pieces of art would be a nice addition.
