Marianne Brandi Shares her Insight on Design
Marianne Brandi is the Creative Director of the successful Danish lifestyle brand DAY Home. She is a regular guest at Avenue Hotel and blogs about design and other subjects which inspire her at the design magazine RUM.
Marianne Brandi has kindly agreed to share her insights on taste, design and Copenhagen with us.
You Could Call it Relaxed Elegance
“The philosopy of DAY is to create daily couture for your wardrobe or for your home,” says Marianne Brandi, “…you could call it relaxed elegance.”
“At DAY Home we always work with the seasonal colours,” she adds, “but I find that a monochrome B & W universe is very interesting and modern, especially if you add a single acidic or burnt colour.”
Tips on Marianne Brandi’s Blog
“On my blog at the design magazine RUM I write about anything which interests me,” says Marianne Brandi.
“I am not SO into modern design, so I mostly write about food, shops, new ideas and intitiatives at DAY. Like our new concept stores in Lyngby and Århus, we are very proud of those.”
Marianne Brandi’s Favourite Stores in Copenhagen
“Fil de Fer in St. Kongensgade is so beautiful,” says Marianne Brandi.
“Everything in the shop is beautiful. Fil de Fer really stands out as a unique interior experience.”
“Green Square on Amager is my favourite …,” she continues.
“Seven warehouses with something for every taste. I cannot leave the place without finding something I like. You should dedicate at least a couple of hours for your visit.”
“Othilia Decor is really a showroom,” Marianne Brandi finishes, “but when Othilia is there you can have a chat with her about the comfortable Italian furniture from Meridani. Othilia has incredible taste and imports some amazing stuff.”
Avenue Hotel is Cosy and Homey
“I love Avenue Hotel because of the young, friendly and very helpful staff,” says Marianne Brandi.
“Also I feel at home at Avenue Hotel. The hotel is decorated by my good friend Mikael Mammen, who is amazing at creating a cosy atmosphere. General Manager Mai Kappenberger and her team at Avenue are fantastic at making the atmosphere even more homey …”.
