my scandinavian home: An eclectic Copenhagen apartment with attitude

An eclectic Copenhagen apartment with attitude

Monday, 8 August 2016

Hello there! I hope you had a great weekend? I arrived in Finland last night, and am sooo excited  (once again, any Helsinki tips so welcome!). We've got a full on shoot day today but I wanted to check-in, say 'hei' and share a few snaps from the striking Norrman household in Norrebro, Copenhagen. Beautifully captured by Lina Östling and Mari Strengheilm, interior designers Anna and Lars have decorated their home with a cool blend of white, dusty pink and dark grey, striking black marble and an eclectic mix of antique and flea market finds as well as items picked up travels. Their lovely doggy Helium looks right at home on that sofa, and rightly so?!

What a fabulous home - soooo striking?! Is there anything that stands out to you? I've got my eye on that African juju hat - it looks beautiful framed.

Other items I love: sitting room - Beni Ourain rug. Loom and Field sells beautiful kilim pillows / cushions and rugs like these. Workspace - print: Faux poster collection - xwishbone chair. Kitchen - marble tiles, Calabash pendants.

See more pics and a full write-up of Anna and Lars' home over at Sköna Hem here (in Swedish). The duo have a great instagram feed too!

Other lovely homes captured by Lina Östling include the happy home of Johanna Flyckt Gashi (love this), Mari Strengheilm's island home (beautiful) and a Swedish home with a relaxed boho vibe (the colours). 

Right - better get on with the job... have a wonderful start to the week and see you Wednesday*!

*I'm on 'slow blogging' summer time right now while my girls are on their school holiday and posting every other day - bear with me for a couple more weeks and then I'll be back daily again!

  2. Hi!

    Welcome to Finland!
    You should absolutely go to a swimming hall in Yrjönkatu. They have different opening hours to men and women - and most of the people swim naked. Ask the cabin from second floor. There you can also order some food if you are hungry, or you can have a little rest on the cabin bed and there are two different saunas. The swimming hall is old and beautiful! You should also go to common sauna to Harjutori, or to a Culture sauna in Merihaka or to a new seaside sauna Löyly in southern Helsinki.
    Have a dinner in Sando in Kallio and lunch in Birgitta, seaside cafe. Walk around the design district. Take a bus or train to Tapiola, Espoo and go to museum Emma to see Rut Bryks art. Kiama and Ateneum are also worth of visit. Go to Linnanmäki, amusement park to the old train... And take a ferry to Suomenlinna.
    Enjoy your stay!

  4. Was just in Helsinki last week and had a great dinner at Kitch. We also did the tourist thing and took a bike tour with Happy Helsinki Guides and loved it. The Sibelius monument, the Chapel of Silence, Church in the Rock - all beautiful!

  6. Would you know what that pink wall colour is? I am not sure we would have the same brand in Canada but can you recommend similar colour? I am trying to decide on a pink for my bedroom and this would be exactly what I am looking for.

  9. Some tips around my neighbourhood:

    Check out Putinki (Korkeavuorenkatu 19) and Papershop (Fredrikinkatu 18) for lovely papergoods like cards, posters, notebooks etc.

    When hunger strikes, try Alfons pizza (Vuorimiehenkatu 35) which has delicious spelt sourdough crusted Italian pizzas on offer. The Margharita is my favourite. Or if you're so inclined, there's a new healthy food cafe called Healthinki (Tehtaankatu 13).

    And for properly good coffee, try Kaffa Roastery (Pursimiehenkatu 29A)!

  11. For the best kanelbullar ever, go to Kafé Succés. It's in an gorgeous arty area of Helsinki, near to the embassies. The address is Korkeavuorenkatu 2, about 15 mins walk from Esplanaden. If you walk there, look up at all the beautiful buildings. Oh, and have it with a cafe au lair in a bowl.
    BTW love the blog too!
