I was watching New Amsterdam on Netflix last night (I know, probably not very design cool, but it’s an easy watch after a long day!) while intermittently browsing through instagram (Per hates it when I do that!), and I stumbled across the Danish account of Stina Bothilde. From what I can gather, Stina and her family divide their time between a beautiful old apartment in Fredriksberg, Copenhagen and a weekend retreat in Hønsinge, West of Zealand. They both caught my eye for different reasons, and I’m pretty sure I’ll feature her cabin at some point. But today, I couldn’t resist giving you a small tour of their city space. I say small tour since Stina hasn’t shot that many angles thus far. Even so, these lovely rooms / angles are filled with lovely ‘effortless Danish’ inspiration.
In the dining area, a pair of Opaline Hubsch lamps hang over the table, the cables draped from the original electrical source. A long brown cushion (made with curtain fabric) helps transform cabinets (from Handcrafted Interior) into seating while adding a touch of on-trend colour while classic wishbone chairs are arranged opposite.
A galaxy globe mobile by Kaja Skytte hangs in the corner, while a basket of blankets lies in wait by the balcony door.
It’s just a teeny room – as with many city apartments space is of a premium and you simply need to make do with the square metres you have. All the same, it looks super cosy! A wall mounted pocket organiser* from Norman Cph (as seen on the wall) are perfect for storing books in lieu of a bedside table.
I love the wood on the casing of the bathroom cabinet – combined with the brass holder – it really makes the space!
Well folks, I might not have been able to show you the entire home, but I have a feeling this is a start of something beautiful!
And if you’re into all things danish after seeing this – go ahead and pull up a wishbone chair and scroll through this danish home tour archive. It’s a favourite of mine!
By the way, I’ve been really enjoying the comments lately, especially when a discussion arises, they are so fun to read and remind me of what a great community My Scandinavian Home is! Thank you.
Ha det fint!
