Sunday Morning Modern | Danish Living

Less Charlotte More Copenhagen | As a designer, realtor and resident of Asheville I have had fantasies that the development of our city was influenced by more European lifestyle models, as opposed to, American ones.
BUILD-111-500x375

I’m not alone in this thinking given multiple conversations with business partners, friends and neighbors. I’m particularly drawn to the design, cultural and sustainable influences of Scandinavian countries. Many times I’ve attempted to capture these thoughts over the years, but have found these articles by Build LLC out of Seattle that seem to pick up on the spirit of our combined thinking.

“The principles that the Danes operate with and the philosophy that they exude seem to make for an ideal environment — a deliberate environment. What we learned about life and design while living in Scandinavia influences every house we design and every dinner party we throw”

As you read through these two articles, Studies, Scandinavia & Schnapps & 10 Things We Learned in Scandinaviathink about how it could apply to both the environment, culture and spirit of the city we love and the evolution into our shared future. How do you want to live and what do you want us to become? And for some cool visuals visit our Pinterest page here. Proost!BUILD-051-500x375
