A Scandi-Inspired Warm and Relaxed Family Home

When I first came across Sabrina's home over at @maisonpourcinq I assumed it was Danish. There is something about the way she has balanced minimalism with a relaxed, warm vibe as well as her choice of interior items like the wall mounted mug storage, specific prints and the cone shaped wall lamp that gives it a Danish touch. But actually, upon reaching out, I discovered Sabrina resides in Marl, Germany with her husband Ouissem and three children Vega (15), Mika Anouk (3) and Jonah Nael (1). Which just goes to show, you don't need to have the Viking gene to create a beautiful, Scandi inspired home! Ready to feel inspired by this relaxed family home? 

"A lot of our furniture is used and I never really liked for it - it found us. My instincts know what fit into our house. Sometimes I don't even think it's beautiful at first, but I know it fits a particular room or corner and emits a good feel. I've learned that not everything I find beautiful fits into this little house. It can be a sad process sometimes, but we love the finished rooms" - Sabrina 

Can you spot the TV? 

Sabrina and her husband have been painstakingly renovating the house over a number of years. the below before, during and after pictures provide a snapshot of what they have been contending with! 

I recognise that Geberit cistern from our own bathroom build up at the cabin! We also opted for the same Geberit flush button.  

So beautiful! The off-white tones give the space such a calm feel. I love the use of the Ikea 'Moppe' mini chest as bathroom storage too! 

I really enjoyed this! It's so relaxed and full of interesting, inspiring details.  

I particularly loved the little dragon! How about you?

Since it's put me in a Danish frame of mind, here are a few homes to enjoy from the other side of the Ă–resund bridge:

Tomorrow my younger sister arrives from London for the weekend - I can't wait! I hope you have some nice plans lined up too!

Trevlig helg! See you Monday! 


PS The news is just so hard to digest right now. Yesterday I felt like doing something extra, so I signed up for the charity donation based 'Run for peace' and ran 10 kilometres (unbelievably stiff today!). If you feel like doing something similar over the weekend, you can make a donation and sign up over at Virtual Runners (there is also the option of a 3 km and 5 km which you can run or walk!). 

Now for a hot bath.

  1. I love home tours where it looks like real people live in the space. It's so refreshing to see toothbrushes out, and did I spy the toilet bowl brush? They have done a marvelous job of making this home their own.

  2. This is so beautiful. Really loved the William Morris portrait.

  3. Hi! Can you please tell me where you got your floor abs wall tiling from
