The dreamy home of a Danish writer

Goddag! I often think about people who 'split their time' between two places - more often than not both are fabulous and evoke serious life envy (in me at least). One such person is the Danish best-selling author Annika Von Holdt. If you follow her on Instagram you'll know that she spends her Winters on Harbour island in the Bahamas (can you imagine?!), has a beautiful apartment in Copenhagen, lives with her son and the cheekiest cat and is very, very funny. I thought it was about time we revisited her lovely home - where the essence of owning a few carefully selected pieces and keeping to a soothing colour scheme allows light and space to dictate the feeling.

So dreamy, don't you think? The muted colours, the light wood floors, the large windows and high ceilings - the de-cluttered neature of the space. Everything?!

Plus there are at least ten pieces that I'd absolutely love in my own home including: the Gervasoni Ghost sofaPlatner coffee table, Bertoia diamond chairs, Flos floor lamp, Gatto table lamp (a new favourite), Panton chair, Mad et Len scented candles (I've had my eye on these for a while!), Z1 pendant (cheating a bit with this one as I already have it in my bedroom!), pure linen bedding, and a white sheepskin throw.

Think I might just nip out and buy a lottery ticket.... back shortly!

Is there anything you'd like to recreate in your home?

Have a lovely day!

PS If you could - where would you split your time between? I'm thinking Sweden, London, The Alps, Kerala and the Bahamas. Actually, would I be allowed to swap in new places each year?


  1. It gives me ideas for my own flat. The gallery wall (without the shelves, I have a plate rail, it would be too much) and the bedroom too. Something more ethereal...

  2. If I could, I'd split my time between the house we currently live in in the city which I love, and a (currently imaginary) tiny rustic cottage on a lake a few hours from the city. This would make it ideal to pop back and forth quickly and daily with my husband and dog!!

  3. Wow, what a dreamy looking place! You'd think all the white and seemingly "cold" colors would make a room feel a bit desolate, but it looks so cozy and homy here.

  4. I adore every single detail.

  5. Here is the MEAC Championship is and furthermore we saw the victor of this match. He additionally let us know the defecaulties in which he just battle with his tehre and might be this is beneficial for him. What's more, on the off chance that we have same circumstance then we should do this as the tiger do in this match.
