I’ve been wanting to start writing about Danish brands I come across, especially those that might not be as popular or known outside of Denmark. I just think that the Danes have a special style and eye for design - it’s a question of taste, of course, but I really like the clarity and simplicity, the clean lines and almost monochromatic colors. And I’ve recently come across the jewelry from Pernille Corydon, and I find them very timeless and stylish, while at the same time elegant and feminine. So that’s why I’m introducing them here today!
Her jewellery is described on her homepage as follows, which I find very fitting: “Scandinavian simplicity inspired by geometric shapes characterizes the work of Pernille Corydon. The Danish designer creates distinct, modern jewellery stripped of excess. What
remains is a pure and feminine expression that matches women of
all ages from all parts of the world.“
I’ve recently bought the “Multi Coin Ring” in gold, and it’s beautiful. I stood in the store and could quite literally have bought ALL of her earrings and rings! So pretty!

It comes with matching earrings as well (might have to get those, too!). But I really like all her stuff, and you should definitely check it out!

I’m a big fan of Danish (all Scandinavian, really) design, especially when it comes to interiors and decorations. The Danes just know how to decorate their living spaces! I’ve recently read this post about Scandinavian design lessons, and I think it is spot-on. What I find most fascinating is the fact that Danish design is usually associated with stylishness, functionality, clean lines and monochrome colors. At the same time, it’s never cold or unwelcoming - au contraire! Danish apartments have a wonderful welcoming, warm and inviting quality, which is all part of the big concept of “hygge”. Hygge is key to the Danish culture, and it describes a feeling of well-being, coziness, having a good time, for example with your friends or family. The high season for hygge is around Christmas (read up more about the concept of hygge on the Visit Denmark website), and there are some tools that can be used in interior design to ensure that a stylish apartment is warm and hyggelig as well. For example, natural materials like wood always help to create warmth, so do cozy blankets or sheepskins. Obviously, candles are a key tool for hygge as well!
Below, I’m sharing some of my favorite living space inspirations (all from Pinterest) that, to me, display Danish design and living culture at its best.
