A Stationery Designer's Lovely Copenhagen Home

If you've been following My Scandinavian Home for many years (I know some of you've been stopping by since I started this blog in 2011 - thank you!), you'll know that I love to shake things up a little and try to share inspiration for all Scandi tastes and styles - whether large or small (or even on wheels), light or dark and sometimes even a pop of colour! Even if the home tour doesn't fit your specifications, I like to think you can get inspiration from anywhere, and if you look closely, there's always something new and intriguing to take away with you. 

In Signe Birkving Bertelsen's Copenhagen home, there's one particular DIY idea that's really captured my imagination (and of course there's some incredible architecture and interior design at play too)! But first, allow me to introduce you. 

Signe lives with her husband and two children Karl and Esther in the Danish capital and is co-founder of the danish stationery brand Notem Studio. Simple with a clean, minimalist finish, Signe's home is dotted with interesting furniture and ornaments, which she constantly moves around. As with every home, some are more important to her than others - and the beautiful stool from West Africa (made from a single piece of wood), the AeroPress coffee maker and Akari lamp are listed as ones she'd never part with! 

Nora and Laura of Our Food Stories were there to capture these pictures. 

Welcome to Signe's world! 

This is the piece I was talking about!

And this is the stool from West Africa which Signe would never part with. I can see why, how about you? 

I think my favourite corner is in the bedroom with the iconic wishbone chair, sheepskin and reading lamp. The picture also gives you a closer look at the beautiful wooden floor - something which so many old Copenhagen apartments are blessed with! 

Is there anything that stood out to you about Signe's apartment? You can read the full interview and see more pictures of her home here

Would you like to take a peek inside a few other Copenhagen homes today? Here are some I love: 

And one final question - what piece of furniture or accessory in your home would you never part with? 


PS for some reason the mail out for Fridays post wouldn't work, you can find it here in case you missed the new autumn update in my sitting room. I hope it the mail out will work today - fingers crossed! If you'd like to receive my posts straight to your inbox, don't forget to subscribe further down this page. 

Have a great start to the week, see you Wednesday!


  1. It´s funny because the piece that i love most is a ashtray made of glass and i don't even smoke! hahahah But looking back it was my first buy as a grown woman. I bought just because i loved the design and i could pay for it. Nowdays I use to put my crystals. And I don´t remember if I follow your blog since 2011, but i´m quite sure that is almost that! It´s very inspiring. A hello from Brazil!

    1. I hear you, there are some really fabulous ashtrays around, especially from the 1920s! Wow, thank you so much for being such a longtime reader of my blog, that means so much! Hello back from Sweden :) /Niki

  2. The stool from West Africa is amazing. Such a unique and restful home she has.

    I have a few things I wouldn't want to part with. My husband is an amateur painter and we have a large painting that he made which is based on a picture I took while we were on our honeymoon. It's framed in a lovely old frame from his grandfather's farmhouse. I also have my dad's dresser from his childhood and my maternal grandfather's wooden furniture humidor, which I use as a bedside table.

    1. I absolutely love the sound of your framed painting, what a special piece. It sounds like you have so many wonderful, meaningful items in your home, just as it should be /Niki
