A bit about yourself:

I’m Silke, an educated Brand Designer who creates artworks from my Copenhagen studio. I am very inspired by our nature which influences my work and my life in general. Since I was a kid I have always enjoyed working on different creative projects. I am never really bored actually.

I live in a apartment with my husband and my dog a little north from Copenhagen close to the sea and a forrest.

Favourite/coolest item in your home:

I really like my old Wegner sofa.

Decorating is very subjective, so I would say follow your instincts and choose what you like. Then you won’t fail because it means something to you.

Breakfast, I love food.

A talent you wish you had:

Piano playing.

Advice to your younger self:

Relax, you do not have to know your future by now, it will come to you..

It’s not a band it is a man and his name is Michael Jackson. Absolute favourite.

I actually do not have one.

Coolest thing about Copenhagen

Especially in the summer time there is this special vibe that makes you wanna smile. It is so cozy with people sitting by the canals, biking around and being social. Copenhagen really shows how to enjoy life.

Where you like to hang out

I like to hang out by the canals close to my studio with great friends and a cold beer.

Favourite restaurant/ bar /café

For great food and fair prices I would choose one of many Cofocos restaurants. There is this great gin bar called The bird and the Churchkey. Café Auto is quite nice.

Top 3 local stores

I would go to Jægersborggade at Nørrebo, there you will find plenty small shops with lots of goodies.

Top 3 online interior stores/brands

Absolutely love the online shop Cibone, the real shop in Tokyo is even better.

I love the selection from The Fine Store.

Carl Hansen because I love their furnitures.
