Mathilde Berg Holkenfeldt Behrendt lives with her family in this Frederiksberg apartment, decorated for the holidays like an exquisite French mansion. The couple feels inspired by old mansions in Paris and by French style in general. They are especially inspired by French architect Jean Prouvé and his simple and stylish expressions combined with natural materials. In order not to make the decor too ‘rigid’, the homeowners have painted the walls in subdued colors, like subtle greys or pale mint hues, and filled the spaces with curiosities in the form of sculptures and ceramics: “The mixture gives an expression that is neither old fashioned nor modern,” says Mathilde.
I love the traditional approach to Christmas decor and the use of greenery and lights throughout — without going overboard on the Christmas decor. It’s no secret I’m also a big fan of the velvet gift wrapping.
