Colour Therapy: The Happy Danish Home of Annemette Moesgaard

Hej! How was your weekend?! It was a triple coffee morning for me today having spent the weekend up at the cottage contemplating the kitchen (I've never been good at making decisions and now it's crunch time!). Thankfully we did manage to sneak in a visit to Copenhagen to see the Michael McIntyre Big World Tour on Friday night (that guy is so funny, go if you get the chance!). Denmark has been on my mind ever since, it's just so relaxed and I love the slight edginess you sometimes see in the interiors. So today, I thought I'd invite us all back for a virtual tour of Annemette Moesgaard's colourful home in Aarhus, Jutland. Annemette suffers from Scoliosis and often finds herself in chronic pain, to such an extent that three years ago her doctor placed her on permanent sick leave. Annemette has used her passion for interiors to create a happy private sphere in which to relax and recuperate. I particularly love the colour choices, art and details which make the space so personal and help lift her spirits on the darkest off days.

"I like to surround myself with happy colours and things that make me happy. For me, colours are my sort of go-to on a bad day. Colour makes me feel better. And now I just think: life is too short not to surround yourself with things that make you happy."

What a wonderful home! I can certainly see why it makes Annemette happy, can you?! 

You can see more of Annemette's home over on her blog and instagram

I often say Danes are the masters of gallery walls, and I truly believe it - if you're looking to create something similar I can recommend The Poster Club* (I think they ship worldwide) - or if you have the time, nip along to a local affordable art market (flea markets are also great!).  

For more Danish inspiration today why not check out the home of a Danish jewellery designer, a Danish home full of treasures and a Danish home full of vintage finds. So inspiring! 

Have a great start to the week friends!

    1. Annemette really has put her personal stamp on this space - I think that's what I love about it the most :)

  5. Such alovely space! And very timely - I noticed that her walls are painted woodchip wallpaper, I've been pondering all weekend whether or not to go through the hassle of stripping the woodchip from our bedroom (inherited from previous owner) or just paint over it again. I even googled "will woodchip wallpaper ever be cool again?" !!! :)

    1. Love that you googled that!! :) You never know! PS seems like a little paint could do the trick in the meantime :)
