Homes to Inspire | Colourful Design


The home of Danish contemporary artist Maggie Kempinska is bursting with colour, much like her art. Working primarily with mixed media and paper cuts, her portfolio is full of colour packed collages, created with a range of varied and interesting materials including ink, textiles and cardboard.

Maggie's love of Italian furniture and design is also evident in her home, which features some incredible Italian pieces of furniture. These are mixed with beautiful furnishings and homewares sourced from the best Danish design houses.

Maggie loves collecting colourful bowls and vases found at flea markets or CasaShop
and Hay in Denmark. 

The bedroom is a haven of colour, pattern and texture. The use of rosewood is enhanced by gorgeous bedding and a mix of cushions from two of my favourite Danish brands Hay and Ferm Living. 

Isn't this the most fabulous photo wall? The black and white portraits by Maggie provide a striking backdrop and a wonderful contrast to the surrounding colours and stunning Italian furniture. 

I love the combination of rosewood, black, white and pops of bright colour in the bathroom. The black tiles carried through from the kitchen add a touch of luxury. 

Originally divided into five small rooms, the house has been reconfigured to include an open plan kitchen, dining and living area. The installation of skylights has made it a lovely, light-filled space. Maggie's colourful artworks are displayed throughout.

Are you a fan of colour in the home? I'd love to know what you think.

  1. I admire when someone let bold colors into his home, not exactly what I would do (my exception: minty shades)but I have to say there are so many examples of great colorful taste. What triggered me most so, was the contrast of colour and large scale black and white children faces. Very interesting contrast!
