The Idyllic Thatched Cottage and Garden of a Danish Artist

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?

The Cosy, Warm and Inviting Home of A Norwegian Artist

The Cosy, Warm and Inviting Home of A Norwegian Artist


After a sharing a string of Scandinavian Christmas inspiration, I decided to take a break from the decorations today in favour of a very cosy, very lovely Norwegian home. The home in question is located in a beautiful 17th century building in Bergen and belongs to artist Marie Storaas, wife Ingis - a graphic designer, and their children Mille and Emil. Laid out over three floors, the unique living space combines Norwegian design with a hint of Italian and French countryside, giving it a wonderful warm and homely vibe. Photographer Gunn Kristin Monsen was there to snap these pictures. 

How beautiful! I absolutely love this home - such perfect feel-good inspiration with which to complete the blog week!

Is there anything that stood out to you?
