A Photographer's Inviting Home On The Danish island of Bornholm

Many years ago, Per and I sailed to the beautiful Danish island of Bornholm, in the Baltic Sea. We explored the picturesque villages, vast open spaces and rugged coastline by bike, stopping every now and again to pop into a gallery or atelier and buy vegetables and fruit from an honesty stall. The one thing we didn't get to do was peek behind one of the pretty facades. That is, until today - as I have just discovered the portfolio of Danish photographer and visual content creator Sofie Hammer. Originally from Copenhagen, Sofie and her family reside on Bornholm - enjoying "the everyday gift of nature, the sea and tranquillity". The granddaughter of a sculptor and daughter of a musician, Sofie's creativity shines through in her photography, styling and the way she has decorated her home. Think earthy tones, an eclectic blend of furniture and art by local craftspeople. Welcome to Sofie's hyggeligt world!

How lovely! 

I'm particularly drawn to the way Sofie has sourced furniture and accessories from small businesses - some of which are handmade - it makes her home feel so personal. The brown tones also add a warm and inviting touch!

Is there anything that caught your eye?

I'm so looking forward to revisiting this wonderful island again one day. In the meantime, I'll be dreaming about it every time I turn on my mouth blown glass pendant lights which were made on the island! I hope you will also get the opportunity one day too, it's a must if you visit Scandinavia! 

Ha en dejlig dag!
