The Delightful Danish Home Of An Art And Plant Enthusiast

"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life" - Pablo Picasso is famed as saying. And it's true. We have so many demands upon us. By surrounding ourselves with meaningful art and stopping to look at a painting, I mean, really look at a painting, we can get lost for a moment - and truly soothe the soul! It's the same with plants and a great book. Which is perhaps why, homes like this beautiful Danish one resonates with us so much. Charlotte (aka @cph.muse) lives on the edge of a forest in Søllerød in Zealand, Denmark with her husband, teenage son and puppy. The family bought the house in 2012 and have been painstakingly renovating the property while being careful to maintain the 1905 period features.  The result is a truly personal home and a perfect oasis in which to lose yourself for a while. 

"I love 'used' items - they always seem to have such a nice patina and usually tell a fun story. Virtually all of our furniture is second hand. I love vintage ceramics and glassware as well as plants, flowers and art." 

"Art creates a unique atmosphere in the home. Good art becomes more beautiful by the day and lasts forever. It makes me happy to look at something beautiful. I buy art through galleries, acquaintances and Lauritz."




"I love plants, gardens and nature. Nature makes me feel mentally calm. It's a real joy keeping plants alive and nurturing them so they become tall and beautiful." 



What a special home!

It's also made me want to go out and see what's available in the local galleries here in Malmö! Do you feel the same? Or perhaps, you already have a home full of art? 

It made me think a little of the Stockholm home of Karolina Modig (I love how she hangs her art so low!) and this Copenhagen home full of art, books and danish design! 

I also love that it's surrounded by nature - so beautiful! My childhood home was also on the edge of woodland and I'll never forget the noises we'd hear at night - from foxes screaming to the hoot of an owl. it could be a little disconcerting at times, but there was something incredible about opening the curtains each morning to layers of greenery. 

Do you live close to nature?

  1. I love this home so much. The garden room is an inspiration - looks like a very large greenhouse made into a room - perfect in the middle of all that greenery. I love the art collections and the plants inside too. Thanks Niki. xx Rebecca xx

  2. What an amazing home! I love everything about it. It is so well designed, every photo shows a great vignette full of thoughtful details. But the art is a true showstopper. I am so envious. Art and the garden. One of the most beautiful homes I have seen. Well done.

  5. Hello! I've been keeping up with your blog for six months or so, but this is the first time I've been inspired to ask a question: do you perhaps know where the large white bulb-shaped vase in this home comes from? Thanks very much! :)

    1. Thank you for following along for the past six months! I’m so happy you took the time to comment. I love that vase too. Charlotte found it at a Danish flea market but unfortunately doesn’t know the artist is. I hope you come across something similar!
