Friday totally calls for something fabulous. And when I discovered the Danish home of architectural technology student Freja Bak Petersen I knew I’d found just the place! Freja’s Copenhagen apartment is a total dream! Just the glimpse of the books in her dining room in yesterday’s Danish home round-up had me searching instagram for more, and her feed was awash with room after room filled with mid-century Danish design pieces, colourful art, stacks of books and subtle details that make the space truly unique and personal. Buckle up friends, you’re in a for a real ride! 
Freja found the Børge Mogensen dining table on Scandinavian auction site Lauritz.
I could climb into that classic Kludestolen chair by Bernt Petersen and read all weekend, how about you?!  I also love floating bookshelves it helps to maintain a lovely light and airy feel (unfortunately, we don’t have many walls in our home that could support this – do you?). 

Freja built the shelves herself (you can see a slide show of the process, including before pictures, here). So clever!

Instead of ripping it out, Freja kept the original 1920s kitchen and updated the cabinets with a lick of Retro paint by Beckers. The kitchen walls have been painted in Salt, also by Beckers. 

A plaster wall in the living room breaks up the white and adds a load of texture to the sitting room. 

It’s the subtle touches in Freja’s home, like the colour of the floor, that makes it so personal. “I painted the floors in a very light blue with a touch of grey. I love that they are light blue!” Freja told me. 

The velvet ‘Floyd sofa’ in matt beige is from the Sofa Company

What a perfect way to create room for a home office in a small space without having to stare at your work / study notes from bed! So inspiring! Freja made the desk herself using IKEA legs and a lacquered MDF board. The lamp is from Møller & Rothe.  

Oh, how I loved this home tour. I hope you also felt inspired!

Did anything stand out to you in particular?

I love the light blue floor (Freja has promised to come back with the exact colour code over the weekend. I’ll stop by and update the post as soon as I receive it.

In the meantime, you can see plenty more pictures of Freja’s home over on instagram here.

It seems the Danish design love fest has become a two-day affair! If you missed yesterday’s post, I strongly recommend you pour yourself a coffee and hop over there now – so many dreamy spaces!

Other dreamy danish homes to love over the weekend include a rare peek behind the facade of Copenhagen’s colourful Nyhavn, the cool home of a Danish architect and hygge and pops of colour in Hanna Järver’s creative home.

Have a fabulous couple of days, friends!

If you’re an interior designer or architect make sure you stop by over the weekend as I’ll be announcing a very exciting contest!
