House Tour: the Danish home of MisseMai

Today, I'm taking you to see the house of Mia-Louise Mailund which was recently featured in Danish magazine Alt For Damerne. Mia-Louise is the talented designer behind the gorgeous Old Oak's last Dream handmade print, which I have at home.
In 2008, we had featured her studio on the blog but I'm loving her home, her black floorboards (very bold but a trend we see more and more) and how she used gorgeous, feminine wallpapers in one room and then went very graphic in the hallway. The wallpaper below is from Zoffany, the bag from Gucci and the scarf from Liberty. I'm really loving the Apple in the picture frame and I asked her if it was one of her designs (really hoping it would be) but sadly it is not. It was a present from a friend a long time ago...I love the use of Apple in design...I got this yellow one for Mila's bedroom in Hong-Kong and maybe I may be tempted to dig into our stock and get this gorgeous Apple rug for her bedroom

In her bedroom, Mia-Louise kept since simple and relax. The dresser is from a flea market and she found the vintage suitcase in the street (nice found!)....doesn't it look gorgeous AND practical?! and of course the beautiful cushions are by Mia-Louise (same designs than the prints)

Now....look at these glossy, glamourous floorboards! There are beautiful...
I have always thought that you need a huge amount of natural light to make the most of dark floorboards and therefore it wouldn't quite work in the UK with the fantastic weather (NOT) we have throughout most of the year. Saying that, we're seeing lots of Danish, Swedish and Dutch homes with glossy floorboards so maybe the light after all is not quite an issue. The table which looks like the Tulip table by Saarinen is in fact from Ikea and the chair is from a vintage shop and the pillow is covered with Florence Broadhurst print.

If you were wondering how to create a real statement in your hallway, this is one that bursts out of confidence and screams 'hello mama look at me!' The wallpaper that Mia-Louise used is Closet stripe by Farrow & Ball and it does bring out her wonderful prints. The ceiling light is by Caravaggio but you can also use the Hang lamp by Normann Copenhagen to achieve a similar look.

And to finish this wonderful house tour, the print on left hand side is by Sanna Hannuka who designs beautiful prints. Mia-Louise painted her desk with a hue from Farrow & Ball and the chairs are copies of the famous (and French :-) Tolix chair.

Now I have to run because I have a meeting with VITRA in Clerkwenwell so I wish you all a fantastic bank holidays weekend and as our new designer Bianca Hall would say....
Life would be rubbish without you! :-)
