At the top of our Copenhagen destination list is two-time Michelin starred restaurant Noma, with its spot-on deconstructed interior, the height of Nordic chic. It's no surprise that chef and co-owner René Redzepi's flat in Christianshavn is just as inspiring. Photographed by Idha Lindhag , Redzepi's bright white flat features dashes of color from painted canvases, Kelly green furniture, and Redzepi's own ceramics. We've sourced some of the key elements for recreating the Danish urban look. N.B.: See our post on Redzepi's restaurant, Restaurant Visit: Noma in Copenhagen . Above: The interior walls are painted entirely in white, which gives the flat a gallery-like quality. Above: Mix-and-match ceramics stacked on an antique industrial cart. Above: Redzepi's own Nordic ceramics are also used as serving dishes at Noma. Above: Botanics come first: an antique chart hangs on the wall behind a table of house plant companions. Above: The classic Hans Wegner Wishbone Chair in Black Lacquer is $849 from Design Within Reach. Above: Show off color with a white-painted background using Benjamin Moore's low- and no-VOC paints in either Super White ( L) or Decorator's White (R). Above: Source an antique storage bench similar to this 19th century Swedish Bench from 1st Dibs; contact Dos Gallos for pricing information. Above: Paint an antique chest with Benjamin Moore's Natura Paint in Kelly Green ; $23.99 per quart. Above: Source a vintage botanical wall cart from eBay , like this starting at $40.28 or a botanical cart from Etsy . Above: The porcelain Three Piece Place Setting in Ash by Mud Australia is $124 from Gretel Home. Above: The Pinched Corners Mug for $38 (L) and the Pinched Tea Bowl for $38 (R) are made by ceramicist Daniel Bellow for Anthropologie. Above: Do like Redzepi and use dark blue ceramic dishes to catch house-plant water runoff. The Large Mud Pebble Bowl is $68.50 from Design Within Reach. Above: Well-used clay pots take on a natural patina over time; the 4.25-Inch Clay Pot is $6.99 for five from Amazon. Above: Elevate a favorite plant (or fishbowl) with the Dalfred Bar Stool in black for $39.99 from Ikea.
