DAY Birger et Mikkelsen Home

September 16, 2010

This is such a gorgeous autumn color palette! DAY Birger et Mikkelsen is a Danish label known for their amazing fashion but did you know that they also have a well-curated collection of goods for the home? Their current campaign is called Quirky Autumn and I just love it with the smokey shades of blue, gray…. vintage charm, extremely tactile, a few classic designs from the 60s, some ethnic “raw” pieces made of wood, silhouette art work, embroidery, lots of handmade charm — we all are so drawn to these things because they feel so real and in some ways connect us back to our childhood…

This is definitely a look/palette that many designers are gravitating towards right now — Sibella Court, TineK Home, House Doctor, DAY Birger et Mikkelsen, West Elm, Anthropologie, etc. The mix of high and low, old and new is currently popular but I believe that it has real staying power — like denim jeans — in the sense that you can see a living room in these colors, in this style, in 5 years and it would still be just as lovely and cozy and not at all appear dated or, “Sooooo 2010” as I imagine some current trends will look and feel years from now. Like denim, this look is clean, natural, casual and lasting since it is a mix of periods, cultures, and mostly neutral tones which you really can never go wrong with.

What do you think of these colors, textures and combinations?

    I get the same feeling of happy coziness from these images as I do when browsing through the Anthropologie catalogues (or when I am lucky enough to visit a store in person). As you note, this Danish label is really charming!

    Wow I think this is gorgeous. I’m surprised, me being Danish, that I had no idea that they do Home too! I can’t wait to check out their stuff in real life!
    Thank you for telling:)

    Love it!
    it’s the grays, blues and smokiness…
    it’s fallish… cozy up time… taking things a step slower.

    I really love the use of grey in interiors. Trendy yet timeless, cool but warm all at the same time.

    Oh I think you’ve helped me decide not to paint my studio walls; they are already that blue color and I’ve been struggling with what to do with that room. I like this color palette and think I could make it work in there. Thanks!

    I might be biased since I am Danish but I love DAY Birger et Mikkelsen’s line – it has a strong and clean feel. Very much a modern Danish design aesthetic and I’d love to live in rooms like these.

    I love this color combo. I actually used these to decorate my home a few years ago, so I am pleased to see them being used more often. It is easier to find accessories now that the colors are more popular!

    I am adoring this combination and I am with you I love the idea of a trend lasting. A new kind of timeless.
