The Copenhagen Home of an Interior Stylist and Vintage Store Owner

Hej hej! It's been a long while since I've hopped on a train over the bridge to Copenhagen - a visit is definitely in order soon. In the meantime, I hope you'll join me on a virtual trip to the Danish capital today and a tour of Freya Asgersdatter's beautiful home. Freya is a freelance interior stylist and founder of an online vintage interior shop - and evidence of her natural eye for decorating and skill at sourcing lovely second-hand pieces can been seen throughout her apartment.  The backdrop has been kept distinctly neutral, with a hint of light beige on doors, architraves and the wall of the open-plan dining / sitting room. This subtle colour palette allows the furniture, art and lighting to shine. Ready to take a look around?  

A mix and match vintage dining set rests in front of built-in shelving and a covered radiator (designed and made by Mette Steensig). The wall mounted shelving is from We Do Wood.

The lone piece of art is from framer Kristine Bendsten

Freya has opted for the Bodarp kitchen from ikea. I was actually looking at this just the other day for our own home. The dark green creates a great contrast against the white tiles and walls. The work surface has been specifically made for the space by Nicolai Bjørnstrup

Here you take a closer glimpse at the radiator cover. I love the way it's also provided space beside it for shelving. The radiators in our house are ancient and really ugly so my head is now buzzing with ideas. I wonder if Per's ears are burning! Could you imagine covering the radiators in your house like this? 

The VL45 glass pendant over the dining table is a Louis Poulsen design and below you can spot another radiator cover by Mette - this time creating space to display items over. 

A Valerie Objects hanging lamp makes a statement in the sitting room over a vintage sofa. 

The TV has been sandwiched between picture shelves to create a display and ensure it doesn't take centre stage in the room. In the opposite corner (below) Frama shelves provide space for books, magazine and knick knacks. 

Freya picked up the vintage chest-of-drawers in her bedroom at Boho Habits in Copenhagen. The picture is from Freya's own store

To create a unique home, you don't always need to make hug statements. In the bedroom, simple striped fabric has been used to create a curtain to hide items in the wardrobe and a quilted bedspread brings a touch of nostalgia to the space. 

Such a lovely, cohesive home where everything seems to come together so effortlessly! 

It's making me want to head to Copenhagen for some vintage shopping - I wonder how much I can carry back on the train? 

I'm very curious to hear your thoughts on the vintage items, art, kitchen and radiator covers! 

In the meantime, here are a few other lovely Copenhagen homes to browse: 

And of course, you can see more of Freya's own home here

Happy mid-week friends, see you Friday!

  1. Radiator covers are pretty common in the US. Not only do they create space to put things on, but cats love them!

    1. If I was a cat, that is exactly where I would sit too! / Niki

  2. These radiator covers have lovely detail and meld into the room decor nicely. Maybe it's my strong affinity for everything related to food and eating, but once again, I really enjoyed the kitchen and dining room. The shelving around the tv looks great in this space!

    1. Yes, the radiator details are lovely! They are handmade, and knowing the Danes, the craftsmanship will be such high quality too. Happy you also appreciated the dining and kitchen area! / Niki

  3. I love the bare floors but wonder whether they are cold under foot in this climate?

    1. I was thinking the same thing! Overall I think they are lovely, but I would want something soft underfoot in the living area and by the master bed.

    2. That is so interesting hearing the difference between the feel of vinyl and wood floors. I have to say, I'd take a wood floor over vinyl or stone in Sweden for sure. Plus, living here I've noticed how well insulated apartments and houses are. Growing up in the UK, carpets were a real necessity!

      This winter in particular (with the electricity prices in Europe) we're all going to need amazing slippers and extra boosted wooden socks! /Niki

  4. Hey, I see a Boby trolley in the dining room! I have an ancient one that's a bit wonky because I parked it too close to a radiator for a while. Another reason for nice radiator covers!

    1. Thank you for pointing that out - I love this trolley, you're so lucky to have one! Agree that radiator covers are a good idea, I've been looking at my old radiators at home while plotting away in my mind! /Niki

  5. I really like the wall mirror in the bedroom! Do you know

  6. Oops, didn’t finish the sentence! Do you know anything about it? (The wall mirror in bedroom.)

    1. It's lovely! It looks antique but I'm afraid I'm not sure of the era / design details. /Niki
