We all know that feeling of having talked to someone for five minutes and instantly feel that we have known this person for a long time, Katrine Ken is that person! She welcomed us with a big smile - already chatting about her love for interior and fashion as we walked through the door. With a professional interest in both business and creative, Katrine's wardrobe is an obvious reflection of her charm: colorful and quirky with a classic touch. And just like her wardrobe, Katrine has carefully selected each piece of furniture in her home, with her colored walls, textiles, art from her grandmother, and knick-knacks all coming together to create an organized home with a lot of personality!
Would you say you're a minimalist or a maximalist?
I am definitely a maximalist. I prefer a quirky and amusing style with bold colors, patterns, and decorative elements. For me, a visually rich and vibrant environment, filled with various colors, objects and textures, is the key to creating a space that always puts a smile on my face.
Who or what is your favorite source of inspiration when it comes
to creating your personal style?
My go-to source of inspiration is Instagram. It may sound cliché, but the platform offers an endless array of ideas from cool interior Instagramers, DIY projects, to vintage inspiration. Additionally, I can't help but be inspired by my sister's expertise in playing with colors and shapes. Her influence has empowered me to embrace creativity and infuse it into my own style.

Tell us a secret! What's something people might be surprised
to learn about you?
Not exactly a secret, but something that might surprise people is my immense love for flow TV. Despite the availability of streaming services, I find solace in watching scheduled television and feeling connected with others who are watching the same show at the same time. It's a cherished moment for me after a long day - snuggling up on my FRIDAY sofa while allowing the television to surprise me with whatever it decides to show.
Aside from necessities, name one thing you couldn't go a day without?
I couldn't go a day (or night) without sleeping with an open window. Even during winter, having an open window and feeling the freshness of the air in my
room is a must for me.
What do you want to accomplish this year?
This year, I aim to appreciate the beauty of the city I live in, Copenhagen. Having lived here my whole life, I often find myself seeking adventure in far-off places. I want to change that perspective and approach my home with the same curious and open mindset I have when exploring abroad. I aspire to savor every small moment and make the most out of the hidden gems that Copenhagen has to offer, even amidst my busy work and daily life.
