Fall is upon us

A/W 2014 interior trends

billede8Here at CPHmade we have been through some of this falls’ living magazines to find out the best trends for your home this season.


This fall the neon is out and instead the more dusty colors are sneaking into the scandinavian homes to make time for relaxing. While pastels are for spring these colors are darker but with a muted color tone.


Colors like blue or burgundy are especially gaining grounds this season. Calming yet stylish in the home, creating a comfortable focus for the eye this color palette makes a great stress-free atmosphere in the room. The cool tones blends in nicely with furniture in wood that will bring warmth to the room.


If you dare you could try to decorate an entire room in one color scheme, as if inspired by a Wes Anderson film. The trick here is to keep focus on the purpose of doing so – making a stylish room where the colors help quiet the place instead of making it messy and untidy. A tone in tone color palette will help ease the eye to a peaceful atmosphere inside while the fall-storms are raging outside.


We still see a lot of inspiration from the 30’s Art Deco with marble and metal. Elegant and luxurious like a fancy hotel with lots of gold, crystals and heavy fabrics like velvet. Creating small still lebens is popular and the combinations of the dusty darker color scheme goes really well with metals as well as pottery and glass in the hues. Marble is still popular but you can also substitute it with elements in concrete to gain a rough contrast to the soft fabrics and shiny metals.


Concrete is also a factor in the urban jungle and goes beautifully with all sorts of wood. These years we see a rise in urban gardening – getting nature into the city. Now people are taking it a step further and letting nature into their home.


Most people already have a few limp potted plants in the home, but a new trend is to give the plants more space new pottery and integrate them more in the home.

billede1Creating a little green corner in the homes and maybe to home-grow chillies or herbs is not only nursing to look at, it is also a possibility to take charge of some of the foods we eat. This is a trend as sustainable as they get.

Though plants might be more of a ‘spring-thing’ don’t forget that you can also grow a small Christmas tree in a pot inside prolonging the joy of the winter’s feast.
If you haven’t got green fingers also try incorporating nature into your home with soft shades of watercolor arts or prints for the walls.

Ditte Fischer Copenhagen misses spring


While we wait for spring to arrive

We’re all really looking impatiently for spring to arrive here in Copenhagen. The city has been a block of ice for the last couple of weeks, and we haven’t seen much of our beloved sun for a long time.

Our member Ditte Fischer is also really tired of the dark, grey weather, and really wants spring to arrive soon. She sent us this picture, and we really like the contrasts between the vibrant rosehips, and the raw, black porcelain.

We interpret the raw porcelain as the dark winter, and the rosehips as the much anticipated spring.

We usually know Ditte Fischer for her more vibrant and colourful porcelain, and while we wait for spring, we find it obvious to go be inspired by some of Ditte Fischers colorful porcelain right here in our very own webshop.
