Höst – An Embodiment of Romanticism and Modernity

I recently came across the ultra cool restaurant Höst. It is located in Copenhagen, Denmark. Restauranteurs Cofoco along with Danish design company Menu and Norm Architects has created an organic Nordic environment in an urban setting.

Restaurant Höst expresses everything that could be categorised as “Nordic”, and is the exquisite result of clashes: romantic yet modern, urban yet rural and rustic yet simplistic. It holds a very special place in people’s hearts because of its multiple stories, mixed inspirations and materials.” – http://höst.dk/restaurant

Scandinavian Fresh

I love Scandinavian design. It is a simple, clean minimalism that has an understated elegance. I came across some interiors that reflect this freshness with a mix of French and Belgian elements. Check out Sophie’s Bed and Breakfast in Møn, Denmark.

Natural elements like sheepskins and antlers along with muted earthy tones reflect the Scandinavian connection to the outdoors.

Malatesta Maison

A one-time country home of the Malatesta family (an Italian family that ruled over Rimini, Italy from 1295 until 1500) has been passionately restored into a family-owned B&B, the Malatesta Maison. This rustic stone farmhouse in the valley of the Marches, has modern elements like concrete and metal in its interior (an innovative contrast to the exterior) that is complimented by its simple and vintage décor.

The interior reflects the Scandinavian design style (from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland) with its clean lines, light textiles, scaled back accessories and mid-century furniture.

The eclectic taste of the owners, Claudia and Carlo Ruzza, is simple, functional and minimalistic.

Black accents contrast the stark white walls and neutral pallette, and add dimension and texture.
