A Danish Home Where Subtle Colour and Earthy Tones Come Together

Christina Krabbe (AKA @glimtvist) lives in a wonderful 1940s red-brick house in North Zealand, Denmark with her husband Jonas, his three girls and her two boys, as well as their little girl Nora and a border collie named Chilli. Christina and Jonas share a passion for interiors - and love working on DIY projects together. This might include everything from building a lift bed from scratch to up cycling vintage furniture. They also have a penchant for colour, especially pastels which are combined with earthy tones for a vibrant yet calm family home. Ready to feel inspired by? Welcome to a world of pastel wall colours, vibrant art, patchwork quilts and vintage and contemporary design classics. 

The kitchen cabinets are made by Arki studio, a Danish firm who makes units to 'hack' ikea kitchens. The Bon Bon pendant lamp is by Hay. 

Patchwork Copenhagen quilt, RN design table, the kitchen wall has been painted in Light Antique Grey by Jotun. 

I love this Easter egg 'with a twist' idea! Isn't it fun?

  1. I want the sunny-side up egg decorations! They are so fun and quirky. There are so many whimsical touches--I also like the set of hooks with leaves on them.

    1. Yes, I agree, the sunny-side up decorations are fab! I've never seen any like this before.
