A Clean (-lined) and Serene Danish Family Home

We used to have Danish neighbours that had such a spotless house. Even when it was messy, it looked spotless. I spent ages trying to figure out why, and I finally arrived at the conclusion that even though they had three children, they simply didn't have much 'stuff'. Everything they did have was fresh, clean-lined and vibrant. It reminds me a lot of this this beautiful home - which is also Danish. Photographer Camilla Bækvad lives with her young family in a newly renovated house in Copenhagen. It's a calm space where contemporary and mid-century furnishings juxtapose with original period features to create a home that's full of harmony. 

So serene! 

I especially love the kitchen, which I believe is from Reform CPH

You can follow Camilla's latest projects over on instagram and take a look at her beautiful photography portfolio here

Looking for a little more inspiration today? Why not pull up a seat and take a look through the Danish home archive! 

See you on Wednesday! 


PS Total non-related side-note!: In 1920, the England Football Association banned women from playing football (that's soccer to American / Canadian friends!) saying it was 'unsuitable' . The ban remained in place for over 50 years. Last night, I was beyond proud to sit beside my daughters and nieces here at my sisters house in Cornwall and watch the England women's football team play their way to victory in front of a packed crowd and millions more on TV. Such an incredibly important night for women's football and truly inspiring and empowering for girls up and down the country. Sending love to Germany who's players worked hard and did a fantastic job throughout the tournament, I can imagine you are beyond proud too! 


  1. Where do people keep their technology? I have printers, desk tops, routers, and repeaters. I never see technology in any of the homes you show. I would love ideas on how to make all that work with the wonderful styling you show. Thanks. I love your blog!

  2. The match on Sunday was fantastic. Watched it with my daughters and got caught up in the drama. I loved it too. I have much appreciation for all those women who were playing football for years to get us to this point and beyond. Love your blog too :)
