A Calm and Earthy Danish Home with a Warm, Golden Touch

Tjena! How are you today? I'm a little bleary eyed from my work trip to Norway - it was only three days, but it felt like a week, I've been left with so many amazing impressions and my heart is full from all the lovely, smiley, friendly people I met. I've shared a few stories in my instagram highlights if you'd like to see more. ANYHOOO, on with today's tour! Kamilla Heick is a designer, visual merchandiser and a mother living in a house from the 1930s in Denmark. The lovely family home has been decorated in serene, earthy tones. Sheer curtains slip in soft, filtered light into the rooms, casting a warm glow on the mix of iconic Danish design and antiques. 

Look closely and you'll also notice 'curated groups' of items. This is a clever styling trickled in many Scandinavian home and involves grouping items in a display like way and then leaving an empty space before the next group of items. This helps to give a room an airy, pared back vibe, while still creating interest with items you love. Ready to take a peek? 

Lovely home! 

I'm sure many of you appreciated the messier touch in the sitting room! Real life happening right there. Honestly, you should see the state of my home today having come back after three days away. Total chaos!

Dud you notice the shelving in the sitting room? It's the same as the Elfa storage system I installed in Allie's room. It looks lovely in Kamilla's home!  

I also love the way curtains help to add softness and texture to the rooms - beautiful! 

Is there anything that stood out to you? 

You can see more of Kamilla's Danish home and learn about some of the details here

If you have a little time this morning, why not delve through the danish home archive - so inspiring! 

Have a great start to the week!

A Danish Country Home with a Striking Kitchen And Relaxing Garden!

Hello friends. Today I'm taking you to North Jutland, Denmark and the charming home of Diana Aud.                         An interior stylist, designer, and a portrait and product photographer, Diana has many strings to her bow, and her creativity shines through in her magnificent kitchen with its mix of patterns, shapes, materials and contrasting tones. True to her Scandinavian heritage, Diana's country home also has a wonderful sense of calm owed in part to the decluttered feel of the space, but also thanks to the nature-themed palette which helps draw the surroundings inside. But there are also plenty of places to relax in the shade outdoors too. Ready to take a look at some of the rooms? Another Studio paid a visit and took these pictures. 

Diana's lovely home has me dreaming of long summer days, how about you? My eyes on that hammock! 

I particularly love the large cabinet in the kitchen which is home to Diana's ceramic collection. The emerald green is so striking. 

You can see more of Diana Aud's lovely danish home over at @Diana.aud. And explore other Danish homes in this archive (one of my favourites!). 

Kram!

The Idyllic Thatched Cottage and Garden of a Danish Artist


The work of Danish artist and freelance designer Ane Kirstine Bilde is inspired by flora and fauna - which makes her idyllic country home a perfect base. From the outside, the property on the coast of western Funen is every inch the quintessential country home, with its thatched roof and whitewashed stone walls. Inside, the relaxed vintage and antique furniture helps to accentuate the warm and inviting, yet calm and relaxed feel. look closely and you'll notice every corner of Ane's house is filled with pretty floral motifs and nature-inspired art. In spring, the house comes alive with spring touches from the garden - and life moves outside to the garden and a simple outhouse. Ready to take a look? Velkommen (as they say in Denmark)! 


What a lovely life! I couldn't think of a more perfect home for an artist inspired by nature, can you? 

The outhouse is so pretty. This style of sunroom / greenhouse has become increasingly popular in Scandinavia lately as somewhere to hang out when the weather is less than favourable - but still mild - and prolong the summer! 

Funnily enough, it looks a little like the tiny cabin we have just built - except, of course ours is a contemporary version! 

Could you imagine spending your summer here?

Have a great start to the week friends!

A Danish Artist's Home in Copenhagen - With Lots of Angles and Oodles of Charm!

It takes a lot of imagination, vision and patience to take on an apartment with quirky angles. But fortune favours the bold, and Danish pair Mikala and Mark Brunsvig (an artist) were willing to take on the challenge! Located in the hip Copenhagen neighbourhood of Nørrebro the apartment is located on the fourth floor of a block dating back to the 1800s. Mikala and Mark were keen to create a personal, cosy and relaxed home which is also highly practical. Measuring 76 sqm (818 fsq), the creative couple have ensured no space has gone to waste - creating a series of zones and using every nook and cranny for storage. The result is a warm and inviting home filled with books, art, vintage finds and splashes of colour. 

It's not often I start with a floor plan, but today, I thought it might be helpful to understand the layout and angles before you take the tour. 


Quick Danish glossary; køkken - kitchen, stue - living room, værelse - room, altan - balcony. 

Now that you've had time to study the lay out , it's time to enjoy the tour! 

There are just SO many ideas to steal from this lovely apartment. I've been through it several times and always spot something new! 

Above all else, I love the feeling you get from the pictures - the home oozes charm and a wonderful sense of ease.

Is there anything that stood out to you? Perhaps something that has given you an idea for your own home?

I've got an exciting long weekend ahead with a trip to Kullaberg, Helsingør and Helsingborg on the itinerary (do follow along on my Instagram stories if you'd like to see one of my favourite corners of south Sweden and Denmark!). But before I shoot off, here are a few other homes of Scandinavian artists: 


Beautiful! 

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
