my scandinavian home: The fab Danish home and studio of a photogapher

The fab Danish home and studio of a photogapher

Tuesday, 3 May 2016

Today I thought we'd step inside the fascinating Copenhagen home and studio of Danish photographer Ditte Isager, which she shares with her husband Christian, and little son, Wilder. The space has unexpected looks around every corner - including a cosy sitting room with dark green walls, a calm dining room in muted tones and a modern work studio made entirely from wood (connected to the house via a repurposed staircase).  The home has been decorated with a wonderful mix of Danish classics, vintage finds and items collected on travels.  Let's take a tour!









Photography: Ditte Isager (shared with kind permission). Found via Goop and La Maison D'Anna G with thanks.

Although the entire space is pretty fabulous the studio really stands out to me. I love that they've successfully combined it with a guest house / place for the kids to hang out. Is there anything that stands out to you?

Get the look: Sitting room - F&B paint, Arne Jacobsen chair. Kitchen: the cabinets are bespoke - try IKEA's MÄRSTA for similar. This vintage industrial kitchen island is similar (and lovely!). Dining room: Ochre chandelier. Bathroom: Gubi table lamp. Studio: made using Dinesen douglas pine, series 7 swivel chair, source a vintage industrial stool here.

Read more about Ditte's lovely home over at Goop.

If you fancy  a little more er, great Dane style today you might want to take a peek inside my Danish home archive....which includes homes such as the cool Copenhagen apartment of a typographer and the fabulous home of an interior designer....I know, I know. Those Danes know what they're doing!

Have a lovely day!

PS The winner of the Scandinaviaform vase from Blackthumb has now been announced here (*holding thumbs* as they say in Sweden!).

  1. Love the studio and especially the loft bed. This will show how American I am, but my only knowledge of Arne Jacobsen's chairs is from an episode of Welcome to Sweden (do Swedish people find this show funny?) where Emma is appauled by Bruce's American furniture. But, of course, I'd love one!

  2. What a beautiful home. I love their living room, the F&B green contrasts so beautifully with the bright white ceiling and skirting and light wooden floor. I was only just saying to my hubby I'd like to paint our living room in a deep shade of something. Thank you i think I've found my colour!

  6. Love the overall design, so calm ! The toddler on the loft bed is giving me palpitations though, it looks very unsafe.
