‘Your house, your rules’

When working with interior design naturally I’m preoccupied with creating beautiful and functional rooms. But in my opinion there is not just one aesthetically ‘correct’ way of decorating.

The most beautiful rooms are unique and personal. The beauty does not only come from the selected colours, objects or pieces of furniture but originates in the combinations that are rare and different in each home. Bold and personal, not streamlined choices allow people to sense how the place is being used, and by whom.


Refurbishment

Refurbishment

In my work I do refurbishments of entire houses and apartments, as well as conversions of individual rooms.
In the two projects displayed I have moved walls and redefined the identity and functionality of spaces in order to design homes that incorporate both large, dynamic common areas and more defined, private areas too.

Case 1:
Classic gentry apartment.
This apartment was not up-to-date. It had two small, slightly stuffy hallways and to access the balcony one needed to pass through a small chamber. The bedroom was large but was also served as passage to the bathroom and toilet.

I have removed several walls and in doing so one now enters directly into the spacious combined kitchen and living room with direct access to the balcony. The toilet and bathroom have been joint and is accessed through a walk-in closet thus also making the bedroom more private.

Case 2:
Apartment in an old industrial building.

The apartment was originally built as a printing workshop in the 19th century and was converted for housing purposes in the 1990s. It was a two bedroom apartment consisting of a small bedroom and a very large open space living room and kitchen. The main aim of this new refurbishment was to create an extra room and generally upgrade the apartment.

The extra room was created by moving the kitchen into the living room and constructing a separating wall. The place possesses a raw, industrial atmosphere, which is preserved and emphasised with the application of large kitchen tiles and the open wiring etc.


Furniture design

Furniture

I have designed several pieces of furniture, as single projects as well as parts of decorating and refurbishing assignments.

Custom-made rocking chair

 

 

The Storm&Müller table is designed i Cooperation with Susanne Storm. We have been focussed on creating a design with simple and beautiful graphic lines and a new take on concrete. For more details, go to the Storm&Müller page in the menu.

I have a particular interest in built-in furniture and storage facilities, as they both optimise the utilisation of the space, and add character to the entire room as well as the individual piece of furniture.


Up-cycling & Re-design

Upcycling & Re-design

For me Up-cycling & Re-designing is a completely logical starting point for most of my solutions.
Cabinets made of removable windows, antique butchers hooks turned into combined kitchen hangers and lamps, flower boxes used as racks, table tops made of bathroom tiles…
When you combine old and new it often underlines the beauty of both – and it just makes great environmental and financial sense too.


Ceramics

LMC – Laura Müller Ceramics

My ceramic tableware design is inspired by some of the Japanese Raku techniques. Every item is unique. It is sold at the Storm&Müller showroom in Copenhagen.


Storm&Müller

Storm&Müller is a Danish design duo, specializing in furniture and interior design.
It is founded and directed by Laura Allen Müller and Susanne Storm.

Our first common design is a furniture series. The series initially consists of a dining table and a matching bench. The table and bench tops are moulded in coloured fibre concrete, and the bases are forged in iron.
The furniture is created in five different colours that are developed exclusively for Storm&Müller.

The table and bench tops will all be a little different due to the variations in the colours and surfaces of the concrete. Each piece of furniture is unique, and is numbered and signed by Storm&Müller.
